About Matt Nathanson

Matt is a San Francisco based, internationally touring indie rock performer with a big heart and irreverent wit. He has been a Bread & Roses volunteer since 1998 and has performed for teens and adults in a variety of isolated Bay Area audiences in mental heath and rehab settings.

About KFOG

We are honored to co-present this very special evening with KFOG, a valued collaborative partner for Bread & Roses Presents. KFOG gives back to the community in many ways, including their Local Scene CDs, which help support music education programs in schools and promote local musicians, many of whom volunteer to do concerts for Bread & Roses.

Support Our Mission

Proceeds from this concert will support Bread & Roses’ ongoing mission of bringing hope and healing through live music in over 600 annual shows to our neighbors in need throughout the Bay Area.
