88 Fingers Louie:
Melodic punk rock band from Chicago, USA, formed in 1993. In 1994, the band signed to Fat Wreck Chords, then abruptly broke up while on a North American tour in 1996. In 1998, guitarist Dan Wleklinski & vocalist Denis Buckley wanted to continue with the band, and added Joe Principe (bass) & John Carroll (drums). Together, this lineup released Back On The Streets in 1998 before again disbanding. In October of 2009, 88 Fingers Louie played a reunion show at Chicago's annual Riot Fest. The lineup featured founding members Wleklinski and Buckley with a different supporting lineup than previous recordings. After a few years of playing primarily festivals across the globe, the band announced the release of Thank You For Being a Friend in summer of 2017 on Bird Attack Records, which was their first studio-recorded output in nearly 20 years.
There aren’t a lot of bands like Get Dead around these days. Instead of worrying about gimmicks and trend, this fivesome from San Francisco, California have always focused on music and that’s evident with every passion-filled note they play. Get Dead Started out performing together in 2007 after their respective bands called it quits and eventually attracted the attention of NOFX frontman Fat Mike who produced the band’s first full-length, “Bad News”, as well as their new full-length “Honesty Lives Elsewhere”, and released both records on his label Fat Wreck Chords.
While blending elements of 90's alternative with surf and power-pop, California's, DECENT CRIMINAL, offer catchy, upbeat songs that mercilessly collide with abrasive and often melancholy undertones, to bring forth a style that's playfully compatible while still feeling inadvertently raw.
Enemy Of My Enemy:
We’re a punk and rock n’ roll band from Santa Cruz. Yeah, we’ve all played in different bands over the years (Six Steps to Hell, Hate Brigade, Culo a Boca, Fury 66, Dead Set, etc…). We have a zillion bands that influence us, but it’s not worth going through them all here. Just come out and hang out with us sometime. We’ll do our best to make you a fan.
