FLETCHER Headlines the Bud Light Dive Bar Tour

FLETCHER Headlines the Bud Light Dive Bar Tour Presented by GLAAD

FLETCHER performed an intimate show in San Francisco at Cafe du Nord as a part of the 2019 Bud Light Dive Bar Tour last night. This show, presented by GLAAD, was the third stop of the tour following Brett Eldredge and Judah & The Lion’s shows in St. Louis and Denver respectively.

San Francisco’s Dive Bar Tour stop highlighted Bud Light’s partnership with GLAAD for the 20th consecutive year, with their limited-edition Pride bottles that were on full display and decor to match the celebration. FLETCHER had the crowd singing along to her chart-topping song “Undrunk” as well as previewing new songs from her upcoming album. Fans especially loved when she gave a special shout out to Post Malone, performing “Better Now”, and her tribute to the LGBTQ+ community and Bud Light GLAAD partners with her performance of Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors.”

About the show FLETCHER shared, “This show feels like such a full circle and natural moment for me. My first show was in a dive bar near my hometown in Jersey. To go back to a dive bar with Bud Light and connect with my fans in an intimate setting is something I could not have been more excited to do.”

Following Bud Light’s stop in San Francisco, the tour will travel to New York in August and Miami in November with two artists to be announced later this year.

The Bud Light Dive Bar Tour 2019 is continuing with it’s third stop of the year. On Wednesday, June 26th The Bud Light Dive Bar Tour is stopping in San Francisco with FLETCHER putting on an intimate performance for Pride.

Don’t mess with them.” – Paste MagazineRebecca & Megan Lovell of Larkin Poe are singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist sisters creating their own brand of Roots Rock ‘n’ Roll: gritty, soulful, and flavored by their southern heritage.  Named for one of their familial ancestors who was also a distant cousin of Edgar Allan Poe, Larkin Poe’s music mines a reverent blend of blues and Americana with the patina of a Southern Gothic sensibility, punctuated by the sisters’ seamless harmonies and gritty interplay between electric and slide guitars.WES PERIOD2:10 – 2:50pm“West Coast rap exists in Kendrick Lamar‘s celestial shadow, but that doesn’t mean Los Angeles isn’t speckled with intriguing young voices putting their own twists on the genre. One of those voices is Wes Period.” – NYLONThis native Californian rapper/songwriter/producer began making music in 2010. Flecked with a bright, celebratory and hazy lyrical flow, Wes’ music is upbeat, sunny and singularly Californian. His music fell into the hands of hit songwriter, Justin Tranter (Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, DNCE), who quickly signed Wes to his label, Facet Records, where he released the track “Trap Star,” and the mixtape Pretty Words.FLETCHER | 3:20 – 4:00pm“One of the most exciting female artists to emerge in the pop…Even in the face of growing fame FLETCHER has remained unquestionably authentic – and she’s only just getting started.” – Paper MagazineOriginally hailing from Asbury Park, the rock capital of New Jersey, striking singer-songwriter Fletcher made a tremendous splash when her rousing pop track “War Paint” was essentially declared the anthem of the summer 2015 via the Spotify Viral 50 Chart. The single became the #1 most socially shared track on Spotify in the U.S. for two consecutive weeks, and #3 across the world, earning nearly 5 million streams. After that auspicious opening statement, Fletcher unleashed the Finding Fletcher EP, which added “Wasted Youth” to her arsenal of provocative pop, racking up 2.9 million views on YouTube. 
GASHI | 4:30 – 5:10pm“It’s difficult to not to be captivated by his songwriting and his distinctively strong personality as it’s carefully woven into his music.” – The SourceBorn in Africa, bred in Brooklyn by parents of Albanian descent, Gashi seamlessly sings, raps, blends and melds musical elements into a singular style that has made him an artist to watch. His single “Disrespectful” has accrued 4.6M views on YouTube, and his single “No No No” has been streamed over 6 million times, landing on Spotify’s New Music Friday billboard in the middle of Times Square. SUPA BWE | 5:40 – 6:20pm“Supa Bwe has already challenged the current state of rap as he transcends genres with his eclectic production and blend of melodies and rhymes.” – HipHopDXChicago rapper/producer Supa Bwe (real name Frederick S. Burton) dropped his full-length solo debut, Finally Dead, last December, and the bold release proved to be an audacious opening statement, premiering at number 3 on iTunes and earning critical shout-outs from XXL, Hype Beast and others. As equally influenced by classic hip-hop from his father and the punk, metal and alternative rock championed by his British mother, Supa Bwe’s music is an assertive blend of inventive rhymes, in-your-face attitude and striking vocal melodies that meld his influences into a single, distinctive style that sets him well apart from his contemporaries.MADISON BEER | 6:50 – 7:30pm“Don’t be fooled by her age: 19-year-old Madison Beer is a force to be reckoned with and an old soul.” – BillboardMadison Beer is a Long Island native who started posting her covers of pop and R&B songs online at the age of 12. Since then, Beer has racked up YouTube views past 83 million, she’s amassed 10.7 million Instagram subscribers and 2.6 million Twitter followers. She signed with Island Records after Justin Bieber shared one of her covers. Her recent EP, As She Pleases, featured the hits “Dead” and “Say it To My Face” and racked up streams in the millions.
