Love Jerks is a San Francisco duo who make dream-pop ballads and glam-rock anthems that leave you no choice but to dance, or swoon, or both.

The offspring of two lead singers—Bryan Garza of Scissors for Lefty (vocals, guitar) and Rebecca Garza-Bortman of Happy Fangs and My First Earthquake (vocals, bass)—Love Jerks was born when these two jerks, yes, fell in love. They met in a rock club; got married in a rock club; and somewhere in between they discovered a mutual affection for Grimes, The Pretenders, Tame Impala, and French pop from the 1960s. The result feels fated: magnetic melodies, wry lyricism, and a theatrical stage show that the pair bring to life with the help of their third member, a virtual psychedelic animal drummer. Love Jerks’ first full-length is due out fall 2018.

Easy Setup

This polished dream-pop duo has a full sound, but a small stage footprint. Instead of a drum kit, they tour with an ultra short-throw projector and freestanding screen, so they can set up in front of other gear and load-out quickly.
 

Magnetic Performance

Love Jerks focuses on building new audiences outside of their hometown of San Francisco with large turn-out San Francisco shows every 3-4 months. They consistently convince new crowds to get starry-eyed...
