9pm – Felsen & Matt Jaffe
Saturday, February 22 @ 9:00 pm - 12:00 am
Subversive West Oakland indie rockers Felsen deliver a smart, quirky, and sometimes confrontational stage show that corrals audience members into the inner circle with melody, substance, and heart. Felsen has been featured on Bay Area radio stations KPFA, KALX, KZSU and have been selected to be on KFOG (One of the nation’s top AAA radio stations) Local Scene Volume 11. Additionally their newest LP, ‘Blood Orange Moon’ was named 2017’s album of the year by Sacramento’s Twirl Radio–their second such honor at Twirl Radio. Felsen has performed at both the NoisePop & ULUV music festivals and was a Deli Magazine Band of the Month. “Felsen strives to ensure survival of rock ‘n’ roll” San Francisco Chronicle “Truly one of the best kept secrets of the Bay that deserves to be parroted, played as loud as possible, and shouted out to all corners of the world.” Impose Magazine “Marvelously witty pop”, East Bay Express “Marvelously witty pop”, East Bay Express “Felsen strives to ensure survival of rock ‘n’ roll” San Francisco Chronicle “The band’s most potent and thought-provoking album yet… Powerful songs.” Palo Alto Daily News “I Don’t Know How To Talk Anymore is an album that all rock fans need to hear.” Something Else Reviews “Felsen has its insightful finger on the pulse of a harried, busy generation.” Tahoe Daily Tribune “If rock music can be saved, it will be because of bands such as Felsen.” Positivemusicplace.com “Truly one of the best kept secrets of the Bay that deserves to be parroted, played as loud as possible, and shouted out to all corners of the world.” Impose Magazine mattjaffemusic.com MATT JAFFE is a singer/songwriter from San Francisco. Cutting his teeth on open mics around the Bay Area, Matt started pursuing music more seriously when JERRY HARRISON of Talking Heads offered to produce his first record. Since then, Matt has churned out more songs than he can remember the words to, oversaturated the market with gigs (opening for folks like MAVIS STAPLES, WILCO, and BLUES TRAVELER), and co-written with the likes of CHUCK PROPHET and TOM HIGGENSON of the Plain White T’s. With his band, Matt has played stages across the country, including The Fillmore, The Troubadour, and Irving Plaza, and has just released his third album of original material, THE SPIRIT CATCHES YOU, another installment in his campaign to bring the Guitar Gospel back to the masses.
