“Yeah… we play New-Wop, Bro-Fi, Hyphy, Tropicalia…” - O Presidente
O Presidente are a great new SF Bay Area/Wesleyan band that are makin’ moves for the big times. They’ve seen a bit of a rotating line-up, but lead singer/guitarist Andrew Zingg ‘13 and drummer/whateveryoucanimaginist Tobias Butler ‘13 have remained two constants. The two joined us for a Wild Wild Live session back on November 1st to play some stripped-down (in more ways than one) tunes and chat about the Bay Area, the subtle differences between Portuguese and Spanish, and songs about werewolves. Yes, we did stop and acknowledge how appropriate it was to have a band named “the president” right before that tense election day.
If you’re in the beautiful SF Bay Area this January, don’t miss their show this Wednesday January 9th at Bottom of the Hill. They’re a fun live act and it’s sure to be a fun night. They’ll be releasing their band spanking new album, Clube de Futbol (mixed by Matthew Melton of bay homies Warm Soda) and word is if you get their early, a free copy of the album might be yours fro the keepin.
