The Limousines
The Limousines are an Electropop band based in the Bay Area, California. The band consists of songwriter and vocalist Eric Victorino, and multi-instrumentalist and producer Giovanni Giusti. The band has had comparisons drawn with MGMT.

Victorino, who had previously performed with rock band Strata, stated that he was “tired of band politics” and “needed another outlet, one that wasn’t quite as dark and heavy”. Giusti and Victorino started the Limousines after communicating online and exchanged lyrics, music and recorded vocals online.

The band played at Live 105’s BFD concert, Treasure Island Music Festival 2009, opening for Duran Duran’s show at Mountain Winery. In 2009, the band received local and some national radio airplay and chart success on Sirius/XM’s Alt Nation with the song “Very Busy People”. In late 2009, they independently released their first physical record, The Scrapbook EP, on dual 7” white vinyl. It features four songs originally available only as MP3 demos: “Scrapbook 1998”, “Plans Are Just Coincidence”, “New Year’s Resolution”, and “ithinkican”.

The band released their debut album Get Sharp on July 27, 2010 through iTunes and Hot Topic on indie label Orchard City Books and Noise. The album most notably features the songs “Very Busy People” and “Internet Killed the Video Star”.
The Hundred Days
"Experiencing The Hundred Days live was one of those reminders that the world is a really beautiful place." --SF Examiner

"The Hundred Days are an absolute must-see." --The Owlmag

San Francisco's smartest new young band, The Hundred Days, have released the second single and video off their debut album, Really? The video for "Girl At a Party", directed by David Dutton, is a raucous, fun-filled romp through a gigantic bash with a gorgeous lady as your guide. Magnetic Magazine exclusively premiered the video for the month of August.

Really? is the latest project from the production team of Michael Patterson (Beck, Ladytron, She Wants Revenge) and Nic Jodoin(GreatNorthern). With driving rhythms, soaring guitars, textural keyboards and powerful vocal melodies, The Hundred Days push indie/alt rock in new directions. Drawing from a variety of influences (postpunk, alternative, britpop), the band's familiar, yet intrinsically unique sound has been compared to The Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen, and Radiohead as well as contemporary rockers Franz Ferdinand, The Bravery and The Killers. A moody, dynamic indie rock band, The Hundred Days showcase tight musicianship complemented by razor-sharp pop writing capabilities with both sophistication and urgency.
Doe Eye
Doe Eye

Doe Eye, also known as Maryam Qudus, was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, a place she holds very close to her as not only her home but also her muse for creativity as an artist. Doe Eye has always had a genuine interest in the culture of the Bay Area, especially in the nights spent as a teenager soaking in the musical ambiance of her favorite bands at Bottom of the Hill, Slims, the Fillmore and the Greek Theatre. It was the experiences within the artistic and musical culture of her home that have been a key inspiration for her to become a musical performer and pursue self-expression in her most authentic light.

Doe Eye picked up the guitar at the age of twelve and ever since has been faithful to her passion to pursue music as her career and her lifestyle. Along with both electric and acoustic guitar, she has also found her niche among the keys of the piano as well. Doe Eye has always had a heart for music and one thing that has always remained was her unique tone of elegant eccentricity that gives her such an intriguing sound. Doe Eye has taken her passion for music seriously and is currently studying at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.

Doe Eye has released her first EP album, "Run Run Run" in late August of 2011 along with her first music video for her hit single "I Hate You", which aired on San Francisco's biggest alternative radio station, LIVE 105, the week it was released. In the making is her full-length album, aiming to be released in the year of 2012 as she continues on her adventure to harness her music career and further develop as a person as well as a musician. "I'm just being myself" she told me, "And it's amazing that people appreciate that and genuinely believe in me."
