article and photo by: Stefan - SF Intercom The best part about overnight festivals is that you don’t have to go home for 3 days … and everybody wants their photo taken. OH YEAH! And there is music … here are some of the DJ’s with music I heard & liked at NNMFestival. If you heard something you liked, […]
I’ve done concerts & I’ve done camping … but on the way to Northern Nights Music Festival 2014 I realized I’ve never done an overnight festival.
I almost didn’t make it to NNMF 2014 … but as I was giving up Tucker Gumber messaged me and said “You’re coming with me!”
article and photo by: Stefan Aronsen ULUV comes on to the SF music scene with a “Boom!!! Shake-shake-shake the room!!! Tic-tic-tic-tic boom!!!” On Saturday ULUV hosted hundreds of musicians on approximately 20 stages across SF. Many of my friends were playing and I had intended to see them all … but I fell in love with what […]
I’m researching playlists to see who has the best one.
I’m looking around at playlists to see who has the best embeddable player. Do you have a favorite? I’d love to know which service it is. Any suggestions greatly appreciated … this will be a great way to get the exact player you have always wanted. OR ALMOST! HA!

I get bored super easy! So when I saw that Before The Brave was finally going on tour I told them “I want in!”
I’m not going to Lie … I may have begged a bit. It’s possible I may have been telling Jason Perry Stevens for months, “the second you go on tour … I want in!” I told him I would be his back up dancer, pr pro, merch babe, pack mule, anything the band needed.
Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom Noise Pop starts this week … I hope to see you out at a show!!! There are five free happy hour shows. I am going to see them all, however I know some of you aren’t willing to commit that much of your week to music. Thus you will likely […]
Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom Helping you get the ladies since the 80s! Helping me since the 80′s? I guess I should say thank you? HA! I was contacted recently by Playboy School from Sacremento, “Stefan! You’re so going to love this band… AND… we’re playing shows in SF soon!” I listened to them… and […]
Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom The band is called Yalls, but he’s a band of one?! From the other side of Rock Make I speed walked past all the vendors to see what band was creating such an amazing collage of sounds. Upon arrival I realized the sounds I had been enjoying were coming from […]
Were you at Rock Make today? I was! There was an amazing line-up of bands… and the event has gotten bigger!!! It now includes bouncing blow up houses for the kids, a beer garden for adults and food for all. Not to mention the number amazing venders including but not limited to my friends at […]
Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom I don’t know where “Boom Town” is but I wish it was somewhere near SF. This last week I was in Portland for pleasure. No agenda… but to my delight I discovered it was Music Fest NW and Widmer was having their Oktober Fest a month early. (Likely very unrelated) […]
Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom I know this isn’t a normal post for me!!! However… a couple days ago I was contacted by the PR agency of America’s Got Talent. They asked… “Stefan, do you know any bands that you think would be appropriate for America’s Got Talent?” My first thought was, “HELLS YEAH!” (I […]
Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom Noise Pop is quickly approaching… and as per usual there are tons of shows to choose from. So I’ve made a list of shows I would attend if I went to a show every day! (I’ve excluded sold out shows… cus why tease you?!) THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 16 Academy of […]
Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom In 14 days we visited 7.5 states played 11 shows and showered approximately 5 times. When you’re on tour you suddenly realize how much you value sleeping in a bed, eating food at home… and having the ability to take a shower every day if you so choose. I quickly discovered the […]
Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom In 14 days I got to see a lot of flat lands, deserts and highways.. a lot that I had already been on in previous days. While seeing 7 states in 14 days was fun. I couldn’t help but think to myself (and sometimes out loud) that the routing was […]
Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom In 14 days we visited 7.5 states and played 11 shows. Which as you can imagine means we spent a lot of time in the van. Our tour started in San Francisco at Bottom of The Hill, the next day we were in Portland at Branx followed by shows in […]
Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom While on tour with I The Mighty, we visited a lot of states I never thought I would see. Never really wanted to see… but I learned a valuable lesson: When I told my friends I was going to Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska… I got the same response from […]
Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom Sticker marketing has become a standard way for bands and brands to leave their mark. I visited 7 states and they were all tag’d with stickers. People love stickers. They love to find them, collect them, and stick them. While on tour with I The Mighty, I documented all […]
Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom The boys have been jeering each other to “DO SOMETHING CRAZY, DO SOMETHING CRAZY!” This is just 1 of many silly things we’ve been doing. After sitting in a van for 10 hours… the creative juices have had hours to brew… thus when we enter your restraunt… boys will be […]
Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom As I wake up on the floor of a random house in Spokane… I started thinking to myself how “rock & roll” this is!!! Last night we played a show at The Kave in Spokane. We had not scheduled a place to sleep after the Spokane show and before our […]
