Midtown Social
Midtown Social
In a city that thrives on its diversity, sun-soaked California retro-soul band Midtown Social unites a fractured San Francisco undergoing swells of monumental change with an uplifting and outright funky new single, Fantastic Colors, due out nationwide on August 2nd. Midtown Social is of the fabric of San Francisco with its members representing the wide swathes of what makes the city so extraordinary. For its latest studio recording co-produced by Jeff Kolhede (Money Mark, Alphabet Rockers), Midtown Social writes a love letter to its hometown amid a perilous time when reverence is essential for collective healing. Drastic income disparity, sky-rocketing rents, profound homelessness, acute drug abuse, among other critical issues, are rendering the city unrecognizable. On Fantastic Colors, Midtown Social offers a compassionate reflection of its true love for San Francisco.



The breakout title track “Fantastic Colors” – has friendship at the heart of an exploration down San Francisco’s city streets. A joyous snapshot of friends simply walking together discovering the intricacies of various neighborhoods, “Fantastic Colors” is a lesson in the overwhelming submission to the moment. Floating around the city with a close friend – which are increasingly more difficult to find – welcomes a state of euphoria. “Fantastic Colors” is an ode to the fundamental role friends play while struggling to survive while facing the ever-increasing pressures of living in San Francisco.



Whether sharing the stage with Janelle Monáe or Kehlani, Midtown Social presents their electrifying live show at venerable venues and music festivals across the country. Recent shows have included standout performances at the iconic Stern Grove Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, August Hall, Bimbo’s 365 Club, The Independent, Paramount Theatre (Oakland), and many others.
Suzanimal
Suzanimal is a psychedelic pop project from San Francisco singer, songwriter and bassist Suzanne Galal. Inspired by her love of the Talking Heads, Sylvan Esso, and LCD Soundsystem, Galal picked up a bass guitar for the first time in 2014, at the age of 30, and began writing songs soon after. The result is Body. Recorded at San Francisco’s legendary Hyde Street Studios, it’s an ambitious and surprisingly confident EP of groove-driven tracks, all topped by Galal’s seductive yet light-as-air vocals. A Suzanimal show is designed to make you lose yourself to the rhythm -- with just enough of the unexpected to keep you on your toes ‘til the afterparty.
