GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Those interested do not have to be in a band or have an established sound to play and many of the performers are one-man groups who love learning to play new instruments or jamming for fun in their spare time. “I’ve been (to The Depot) multiple times and it’s always loads of fun,” said Silver Friedline, 20, a Cinema major. “I’d like to see more big names, as I’m sure many people say, but I also love the student bands that play there.” Pootok has been working on her music for years, but said she is just starting to perform in front of crowds as a solo act. “Music is a hobby that takes up a lot of my time,” Pootok said. “I’m a BECA major, and I’ve played at The Depot a few times with dot Vom. This is the second time I’ve ever performed live, alone.”
