Local Band Profile: French Cassettes

A youthful, bright aesthetic, a sound that makes you yearn for summer and the ability to get a crowd dancing with just a few riffs of their catchy tunes have garnered the French Cassettes a loyal local following in the Bay Area. We spoke with lead singer Scott Huerta about the band’s writing process, the changing music industry and his love for the San Francisco music scene. Check these guys out at the Local Band Stage at Live 105’s annual BFD music festival on June 1.

Local Band Profile: The Hundred Days

With a new EP full of slick riffs, catchy melodies and beats that make you want to dance, The Hundred Days are ready to take the Local Band Stage at Live 105’s annual BFD music festival this Sunday. We sat down with the “dark, dance-y and poppy in all the right places” band after their energetic performance at The Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco to talk about writing music, the local music scene and how they’ve evolved as a band.
