San Francisco-resident Adam Balbo hails from Indiana, Land of the Indians, and has also lived for a time in Beijing, capital of the Middle Kingdom. Through his travels and cheese-frying experience, Balbo has a particular insight that informs his roughly-hewn folk numbers and Casio-beat anthems. His songs function like funhouse mirrors for humanity and offer solace for anyone who feels clobbered by pop culture, politicians, and the general stupidity of the world. Take a seat beside him and marvel at the gooiness we call love, the black gold that we call coffee, and this ping-pong ball we call Earth.
