Headliners Sit Kitty Sit “seem to accomplish more with two people than most bands do with five.” The Bay Bridged wrote: “Digging for comparisons, you can find a little bit of everyone from Nick Cave to Randy Newman, Amanda Palmer to Metallica” in their sound. SKS “delivers a shiny and new outlook into the musical realm” – Buzznet.

San Francisco-based trio True Margrit serves up a singular brand of hummably wistful angst and whimsy set to “infectious beat-heavy piano licks” (Laurie Koh, San Francisco Bay Guardian). Their music has drawn rave reviews and called “breathtaking!” (Whatzup Magazine). Margrit’s sixth album, Comforting the Castaways, will be released this spring.
