Daydream Nation will highlight our favorite alternative artists emerging out of the Bay Area and San Jose. Coverage of each event will be provided by both S*ALT(savealternative.com) and Content Magazine (content-magazine.com) Our goals are all the same: we want to provide an environment for the creative individuals in the South Bay to converge, enjoy quality music, and find good company. Here we present: FIALTA.
FIALTA! (fialta.bandcamp.com) This San Luis Obispo Quartet is playing their first performance in San Jose since they began in 2011. The band features Sherwood members David Provenzano (San Jose Native) and Michael Leibovich, as well as Beth Clements and Sarah Shotwell. Self-Described as “Indie Pop”, this band is unsigned, and I’ve yet to figure out why. They find balance between acoustic guitars and keyboards that hint towards a jazz influence that isn’t as obvious as it’s tone. Yet, it’s cleverly disguised as an acoustic pop song that is more complicated than they let on. If summer had a soundtrack, they’d be a power artist.
