Points North live dates

Points North

“Points North” is the self-titled, second album by this primarily instrumental rock band. Spearheaded by guitarist Eric Barnett (a finalist in Guitar Player magazine's Guitar Superstar competition), bassist Uriah Duffy (Whitesnake) and drummer Kevin Aiello, Points North stands on the shoulders of iconic artists Rush, Cream, The Police and Dixie Dregs - but expands upon these influences and clearly cuts its own artistic path. 

Available April 21, 2015

September 26
Points North / Moetar / Nili Brosh
Brick & Mortar Music Hall
1710 Mission St
San Francisco CA 94103

How this has never happened yet, we're not sure.

But we're thrilled it's happening now.

We're pairing up with with Magna Carta Records label mates and fellow Bay Area brethren, the amazing and powerful MoeTar.

Singer Moorea's voice is arguably the world's eighth wonder, guitarist Matthew Charles Heulitt was just featured in Guitar Player Magazine...end-to-end world class players at the top of their game, writing truly original, challenging music that defies categorization.

And at a new (and awesome) venue for us in San Francisco, Brick & Mortar Music Hall.

And if that wasn't enough - opening the night, last seen in the Bay Area by none other than instrumental guitar legend Tony MacAlpine's side as part of his band - the inspiring, accomplished, and musically eloquent Nili Brosh. Nili will be bringing along her top-flight band from LA too, including bassist Jon Reshard (Greg Howe, The Memorials).

Advance discount tickets available (and highly recommended) through Brick & Mortar Music Hall at the following link:
