Matthew Edwards and the Unfortunates
The core group of Matthew on vocals and guitar, Adaiha McAdam-Somer (cello and vocals) and Isaac Bonnell (piano and accordion) played a number of shows in the Summer of 2010. The line up now expands to include Barry Burst (ex-Citadelle) on bass and flute, and Kristina Vukic (The Minks) on drums.
In October 2009 Big Takeover Magazine described Matthew Edwards as ‘possibly the best songwriter working right now’

RubberSideDown has shared the stage with Joe Perry Project, Eddie Money, Montrose, George Lynch, Gilby Clarke, Y&T,
NightRanger, LA Guns, Eric Martin, The Romantics, Frank Hannon (of Tesla), Bang Tango, Bo Bice, Nikki McKibbin,
and has played the side stage for tours including Sammy Hagar & David Lee Roth, Chickenfoot and Roxy Music.

After the unexpected deaths of his sister and father, Geographer founder Michael Deni left his hometown in New Jersey for San Francisco. He spent the next several months with his guitar and a synthesizer he found on the street, turning the tragedy that drove him from home into songs rich with emotion and lush melodies. After a packed album release party at San Francisco’s landmark Cafe du Nord that included members of Bright Eyes, and the privilege of being voted one of three “Undiscovered Bands You Need To Hear Now” by SPIN magazine, Geographer is poised on the brink of becoming one of the most exciting newcomers in Indie music.

  • Really liked reading about the new bands. I miss the old days when there were more live music clubs in the city. I need to focus on those more on my Baghdad by the Bay blog.
