Local Artist Highlight: Sweet Plot looks to surge in San Francisco music scene
It’s hard enough to capture the attention of an audience with your music, let alone the entire culture of your home city. Yet Sweet Plot, a five-piece rock band with immeasurable soul, epitomizes the Northern California lifestyle, from the farms of Redding to the lit up streets of San Francisco. GigTown is proud to welcome the talented group to the family and is excited to help bring their bluesy, rock and roll rhythms to fans everywhere, starting this coming weekend up in the Bay.
With influences stretching down to the bayou and Bourbon Street, there is no shortage of good times to be had when Sweet Plot takes the stage. Frontman Cole “Dr. Krow” Kromer showcases his booming, smoky vocals while Don “The Don” Nguyen and Evan “Q-Stiq” Cuellar add support with a sensational blend of synth and keyboard. Fleshing out the quintet are Daniel “Billy Joe” Plautz (drums) and Dan “Miami Floss” Beckerman (bass) who add fervent, melodic vocals and create the funk-rock atmosphere with endless rhythm and harmony.
Yes, the nicknames are pretty badass but they only tell half the story. Sweet Plot’s swagger is on another level when they’re performing live. This weekend, fans up in the Bay Area will be able to dive into the dance grooves and experience the slick guitar licks and riffs firsthand. The first show will be held at the famed DNA Lounge this Friday, Oct. 2 and the second will be the following night at Thee Parkside. Both shows start at 9 p.m. and will last about an hour each.

Essentially, if you’re looking to experience true musical passion with energy that is hard to match, Sweet Plot is a can’t-miss act.
