This party features a very special live performance from San Francisco 2000's synthpop staples EVERY MOVE A PICTURE and it'll be their first show in over 7 years!

The dance post-punk stylings of San Francisco's Every Move a Picture initially materialized around vocalist/guitarist Brent Messenger, bassist Joey Fredrick, and drummer Dan Aquino. Childhood friends Messenger and Fredrick had been playing in various bands throughout the early 2000s (at times with Aquino), but Every Move a Picture wasn't officially born until early 2004. The quartet was ultimately completed after Portland transplant Allen Davis answered a Craigslist posting and joined up on guitar and keyboards. Soon after, the band recorded three songs at a friend's rehearsal space; the energetic tracks found early airplay on Live 105 local radio and by KROQ's Rodney Bingenheimer in L.A.

As their music further filtered across to the U.K. and Radio One, Every Move a Picture could be found opening hometown shows for the likes of the Kaiser Chiefs and Louis XIV.

The band was previously on a hiatus working on other projects. Currently in 2016, they are excited to be working on new music and rehearsing their live set.
