Q&A with The Stone Foxes' Shannon Koehler

The Stone Foxes

Originally published on

While the Stone Foxes may situate themselves in the "classic rock" wheelhouse, the band is no nostalgia act. By mixing heavy riffs with crack musicianship and sharp lyrics, the band has quickly developed a rabid following of music fans who, at the end of the day, just wanna rock.

Toro Y Moi's Chaz Bundick Talks Race, Moving to Berkeley and Why Electronic Music is Boring

Chaz Bundick of Toro Y Moi

Originally published as part of My SF on Huffington Post SF

Much like the tUnE-YarDs' Merrill Garbus, South Carolina native Chaz Bundick moved to the East Bay right after his induction into the current crop of indie rock royalty. His band, Toro Y Moi, effortlessly marries left-field pop hooks with hazy textures and engaging electronic flourishes. His muscular, dance-y third full-length album "Anything In Return" came out in January, and the band is playing a headlining set at this year's Noise Pop Festival.

Q&A with SF Political Comedian Nato Green

Nato Green

Originally published as part of My SF on Huffington Post SF

In a town where everyone wears their politics on their sleeves, every comedian is, in a sense, a political comedian. But Nato Green is in a league all his own. The San Francisco native (and HuffPost blogger) is a Marx-quoting former labor organizer who has taken his passion for politics and transformed it into a career as one of the city's most exciting comedic performers.

David Chiu

Originally published as part of My SF on Huffington Post SF

Representing San Francisco's District Three, David Chiu was recently reelected to his third consecutive term as president of San Francisco's Board of Supervisors. The Boston native and Harvard Law graduate is the first person in history to have successfully run for three terms in a row.

We managed to grab Chiu between meetings to talk about his experiences in the city, the biggest issues facing San Franciscans, his failed mayoral run and his potential candidacy for the California State Assembly.

Q & A With Geographer's Mike Deni

Originally published in the My SF series on Huffington Post SF

Mike Deni is the soaring voice and creative force behind Geographer, San Francisco's increasingly word-conquering blissed-out indie-rock sensation that anchored a stellar line-up of local bands at this year's Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival.
