In honor of the SUPER sports game happening in Miami this Sunday, we decided to grab a BOWL of KC barbeque and a plate of whatever food San Francisco is famous for and see who would win if bands from Kansas City and San Francisco went head to head.
Both cities have a pretty great history of music, but who has it better? We matched up the best bands and artists from each city and awarded 7 points to the winner of each head-to-head matchup. Scroll down to see the winner of Kansas City vs. San Francisco.
