Circuits — Oakland buzz pop. Manic pop heart ache and minimalist misanthropy you can sing along to.
Bread & Butter — Seattle's denim clad good time guys. Power pop of the «smoke-em-if-ya-got-em» variety. Their killer single «Cool In the Water» sounds like Eddie Money covering «the Pina Colada Song» with the Heartbreakers back him up. They never drive faster than they can see, and they are always looking for a good time. Big hooks and sweet melodies, they are what summer is all about.
Sob Stories — A shotgun marriage of '80s jangle pop and nervy, tongue-in-cheek lyrics unite in the wedded bliss that is Sob Stories. These boys haven't met a hooky chord progression, or a dark turn of phrase, they didn't like. And they dance just as good as they look.
$7 all ages
