Beet The System Live

The Story

Beet the System is an uplifting and organic-fresh yet well-seasoned ensemble that has grown out of the compost fermented by one of San Francisco’s beloved aughts bands, Chemystry Set. Its genesis was inspired by Vermont artist Ben Levitt, aka breakfast, whose Beet the System art inspired  long-time tubersmiths Baba Ndjhoni (mandolin) and Sven Eberlein’s (guitar) second musical seeding.

Along with new shoots Dan Bonnin (drums), Tim Kelly (bass) and Obadiah Butterworth (guitar), the original plantings were nurtured to maturity into a rockin’ tapestry of cross pollinating original ear worms with a healthy dousing of world beat, groove, grass and punk-ish fertilizer.

Wandering yonder, down the untilled path, Beet the System is digging beneath the surface to unearth the real dirt on boundary-defying, hip shaking and message-driven musical roots. Lettuce turnip the beet at a thriving pasture near you!
