Pretty Fire is a new project led by Diego Ardila, formerly of Congratulatinos and Bicicletas Por La Paz. Live, the band mixes soulful keyboards, funky bass, pop vocals, synths, electronic drums and Latin beats into a blend that aims to be pretty, but also fire. After taking a year off from performances to reflect and write new music for this project, this will be the first show of this exciting new act. You can hear their releases on Bandcamp and you can sign up to receive a free new single on the first of every month by texting "fire" to 55222.
Savant Garde, a San Jose-based improv band that centers on musical comedy and a loop machine, is fronted by Ben Meyer and Kiva Uhuru. Though Ben is away on tour with his other project, a punk band called Get Married, Kiva is here to make beats and sing her heart out about her surroundings, suggestions from the audience, and any topic that comes to mind.
