Liquid Foundation flows Friday
Liquid Foundation, an up-and-coming innovative fusion-rock band from the San Francisco Bay area, comes to the River City Saloon Friday. The show starts at 9 p.m. and there will be a cover charge.
From the birth of Liquid Foundation five years ago, this trio has remained attached to common roots. Band members’ influences range from rock to funk, from groove to psychedelic, from folk to pop. A consistent audience of dance-loving music connoisseurs continues to follow their progress, remaining faithful in attendance and enthusiasm. Liquid Foundation continues to be placed in its own genre of cross-over music, and have been compared to a diverse range of acts including The Doors, Talking Heads, The Who, and Phish.
