While a lot of Bay Area bands tend to embrace the sunny, psychedelic side of their city's sound, San Francisco's Weekend have seemingly chosen to embrace their hometown's foggier side.

The Soft White Sixties Remove performer from this event

Leftover Cuties Remove performer from this event
An irresistible combination of sultry vocals, pop-perfect songwriting, and old-school musicianship. From the opening theme of Showtime’s “The Big C” to the infectiously happy “Smile Big” that propelled last Summer's Olympic Samsung Galaxy S III commercial to the current worldwide Hyundai commercial that features the groups cover of "When You're Smiling", Leftover Cuties are a band you’ve heard but may not know yet....
