November 26, 2016

  Today our Spotlight Band is KANDUR. We recently caught KANDUR performing at the Neck of the Woods in San Francisco. They kicked off the show with The Fame Riot and RADKEY.

Very refreshing to find a band that brings out some great feel good rock music. The band is the works of Ilker Kandur who relocated to San Francisco when the political climate in his home of Istanbul started to take drastic turns for the worse, choosing San Francisco as one of the western world’s most historically progressive locales, and the home of many of his musical influences, San Francisco.
