I have a love-hate relationship with creating TOP 20 playlists of local bands. On one hand, the playlist becomes my favorite thing to listen to for the next year. Additionally, it makes it super easy for me to recommend bands to friends. I also love posting a link to the playlist in my friend’s Facebook feeds when they say, “tired of my music, I need a new playlist.”
Have your listening habits changed from 2009 to 2019? Following in the trend of 2009 vs 2019, I’ve created a playlist that documents the San Francisco bands I was listening to when I started writing about the Bay Area music scene compared to the bands I just eat breakfast with now.
I am extremely excited to announce the release of The Delicious Card! Delicious cardholders get awesome deals at over 37 delectable Bay Area eateries! Membership is a great way to explore new places, support local businesses, AND support local journalism. And all you gotta do is join the Broke-Ass Stuart Patreon for $10
My top 20 list only features bands that created new music in 2017 and booked a local show to perform said new tracks. The following artists accomplished that and more.
We love to feature a different person from the community shedding a little light on their life of brokeitude. Who knows, maybe you’ll learn something about the human spirit — probably not. Wanna be a Broke-Ass of the Week? Holler at us here and we’ll send you the questionnaire. SAN FRANCISCO, CA- Travis

Travis Hayes has a heartfelt acoustic sound that stays with you. If you want your girlfriend to miss you while she’s on vacation send her Love Songs, sung by Travis and Emily Whitehurst. A vocal duo whose harmony sounds as natural together as it is brutal on the ol’ heart strings.
