Bay Ledges @ The Independent 11/18/2017


Last month L.A based Bay Ledges played at Rickshaw Stop and three week later they were back in SF!

The Saturday before Thanksgiving things were already starting to slow down in the city: the streets seemed quieter, downtown's hustle bustle somewhat lulled and people heading to the The Independent that night sure did take their time. Show openers, Bay Ledges, went on a little over half an hour past their scheduled 9:00 set time to allow show-goers to get there in time.















Fronting the four piece band, Brother and sister, Zach and Georgia Hurd looked ready for a beach holiday in a Hawaiian inspired shirt and a romper doused in palms, they causally brought their summer time vibes from their two EPs to the stage. The set started with Zach on acoustic guitar, gently harmonizing with his sister on "In Your Head".







Impressed with the provided Kombucha in their dressing room which he said made The Independent the "coolest venue", Zach naturally took over bonding with the crowd with his friendly banter. Georgia stayed modestly quiet for the most part while the other two band mates stayed in the shadows. Shimmery synth melodies give the indie foundation their sound is built on pop accents while the warm blending of background percussion and guitar give them a folky feel.

Bay Ledges are the latest band bending the genre of indie music into something that's their own. As a whole, they really warmed up within the eight songs of their set. Looking, playing and sounding the most comfortable during their last song of the night.

Currently they don't have any tour dates lined up but I won't be surprised to see Bay Ledges pop-up on the 2018 Summer Music Festival circuit. They'd be a great set to catch outside on a sunny day.
