Breaking Lights: Orchestral Wave and Symphonic Elements

Breaking Lights is a shoegaze, post-punk band from San Francisco, CA. Their music combines a mix of nostalgic sounds hearkening back to bands like The Cure, New Order, Cocteau Twins, and Slowdive but with a more modern spin. The band takes those familiar senses and combines them with a symphonic element showcasing these genres in a new light called “orchestral wave.”

The four members of Breaking Lights have been playing together for three years and met through mutual friends. Band members include:

*Orlando Cerecedes, Controller @ Shay Glenn LLP – Patent law firm focused on Silicon Valley
*Serena Joshi, Head of Marketing @ twoXAR
*Susie Kim, Senior User Experience Researcher @ Trulia
*Andrew U’Ren, Head of Brand and Product Design/UX @ Womply

Have a listen.

This Friday September 14th at Bottom of the Hill. Advanced tickets available! #breakinglights #breakinglightssf #shoegaze #postpunk #orchestralwave #supportlocalmusic #bottomofthehill

See Breaking Lights at Silicon Valley Rocks on December 3 at Club Fox. Get tickets here

Earlybird Tickets Disappearing Soon…

On Friday, just before midnight, the earlybird ticket price to Silicon Valley Rocks! will be no more. The show is a benefit, so we’re OK with that.

But, we know many of you like a deal, so get your tickets before Friday, November 15 at 11:30pm. Both VIP and general admission tickets are on sale now

Why go VIP? 

If you go VIP, we have a special treat for you. Doors open at 6pm, and VIP ticket holders are invited to go upstairs and mingle with sponsors, band members, drink and enjoy light hors d’oeuvres while getting a nice view of the stage. Music will be provided by our first band, Peter Chung. Special thanks to Black Box Storage Lockers for underwriting the VIP cocktail hour. Buy VIP tickets now.

GA is where the action is

If VIP is not your thing, don’t worry.  Because GA is all about being in the mix. Club Fox offers an up-close-and-personal concert experience for every general admission ticket holder. Rush the stage. Dance all night. You’ll be right there with the bands, and they’ll be happy to see you. Buy GA tickets now.

Everyone loves a raffle

Throughout the night, our emcee, Renee Richardson, will be talking about and promoting our raffle. We’ll have a number of great items available. Stay tuned for the details but rest assured that we’ll have technology products, vacation rentals, gift bags and more.

If you are not sure if you can attend, that’s cool. You can donate, too. Every ticket purchased and every donation goes a long way to support the American Diabetes Association and the people (children, adults, pregnant women, elderly and musicians) impacted by this condition. And what you give is tax-deductible (except for Eventbrite fees).
