October 29th, Abbot Kinney will be returning home to Los Angeles to release their new single “Can We Become” from the forthcoming EP – THE NIGHT – at The Hotel Cafe. San Francisco’s Travis Hayes and The Young Daze will be opening at 7pm.
“Balanced Breakfast, a weekly music meetup that began as a small group of artists in SF who chat about the music industry over the most important meal of the day, has grown into a national network of artists and collaborators—setting new standards for community in the business.”
– Alexi Belchere (SFsounds)
“The band moved north from LA (where they sold out the Troubadour) a few years ago and has a polished but still gritty sound that evokes early Radiohead, with lead singer Jared Swanson’s vocals sounding Jeff Buckley smooth.”
– Annie Bacon (SFCritic)
“Abbot Kinney is both San Francisco and Los Angeles. It is the story and culmination of living in two great cities in one big state. The sound of fog as it cascades through Sutro Tower, or the feeling of the sun kissing “good morning” to the Hollywood sign. Or it’s the path in between: the long stretch of the 101, in all its vastness and glory, and the focus-driven path that is the 5.”
