Sri Lankan-American folk rocker Bhi Bhiman packed The Independent on a Saturday night for his Rhythm & Reason album release party last month. A native of St. Louis, Mo., Bhiman eventually migrated to Northern California to attend UC Santa Cruz before moving to SF to pursue music.

With his sidekicks — keyboardist Max Cowan, bassist Oscar Westesson and drummer Cairo McCockran — playing alongside him, Bhiman (guitar, vocals) performed a mix of both old and new songs for his adopted hometown crowd. There was even a special guest toward the end of the show as Joshua Boronkay of Oakland two-piece Ol Silver Tongue, which served as one of the evening’s two openers, joined the band for set closer “Guttersnipe”.
