Weds 1/6/2010 The She's @ Bottom of The Hill!! ****Join BISS on Wednesday, January 6th at Bottom of The Hill for a true up and coming young band from SF, The She's. Many of you had the chance to catch just a glimpse of them at the Nat Keefe Carnival last weekend. The SHE'S are a four piece rock band from San Francisco, California. They formed in 2007 and began writing and performing around the Bay Area. Now, at 15 years old, the SHE'S have made not only a name for themselves in the local music scene, but also a distinct sound that can be best described as a fusion of Rock, Powerpop, Punk, and Indie, or "Simply SHE'S." The SHE'S are ready to rock and here to stay. "Rock and roll pay the toll!"
