Feedbomb: The Original Facebook Band Still Grooves On

Feedbomb, another Silicon Valley Rocks! band, was once 100% Facebookers. But that was back in 2011. And now the band has regrouped—some of the same members but employed elsewhere—to play at Silicon Valley Rocks!

This year’s player lineup includes:

– Peter Chung
– Sean Chaffin – Stripe
– David Ebersman – Lyra
– Eric Zamore – Facebook

Feedbomb is known for pop/rock, great performances, and showmanship. At Silicon Valley Rocks! 2011, they performed a take-off on Carlie Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe with lyrics penned by friend and journalist, Owen Thomas.  Have a listen.

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
