Salty De Vito, True Mad North, and Crazy Famous at Milk Bar [Photo Review]


The San Francisco-based Salty De Vito brought their patient and established sound of rock and roll to Milk Bar this past Saturday, showcasing three local bands that pleased a brave and wet crowd. Playing with fellow up and comers True Mad North and Crazy Famous, the group was repeatedly thankful to the packed house throughout the night for braving the unsightly weather.

Salty is known for their raw and energetic stage presence, which is complemented by the lofty vocals of Ali Field. Their sound is a melting pot consisting of rock and roll, power pop melodies and sweeping vocals accompanied by drummer Lance Harrington, all layered over thick and powerful rhythm and bass tones. Although crowd favorites such as ‘Bathroom Stall‘ and ‘Our Sounds Don’t Go Together were graciously received by everyone in the room, the liveliness and force of their newest track ‘Energy‘ took the crowd by storm. Crazy Famous kicked the party off right with their modern take on vintage rock and roll, while True Mad North finished the night off with their refined and polished folk-rock sound. The show was a great local event, which drew in large numbers and plenty of good times.

The group records live on the local television network KRCB this Tuesday the 27th, to play select tracks from their debut release. Following that will be a string of performances throughout the Bay Area that include Hotel Utah on April 21st with DangerMaker, and Rockit Room on May 11th with Crazy Famous. The album Salty De Vito is available through iTunes or online through the group’s website.
