Georgia-based punks MUUY BIIEN combine darkwave, post-punk and minimalist influences with speed and intensity. “Muuy Biien were Black Flag and Fugazi, now more Joy Division and Pissed Jeans.” – New Noise Magazine CURSED GRAVES HEART BEACH “The music is stately, slow – McCarthy and Jansen’s ever-present harmonies on vocals and guitars underpinned by Christopher Wessing’s loose, considerate drumming.

CREEPERS “Started as a studio project in 2013 by members of Deafheaven, drummer Daniel Tracy and guitarist Shiv Mehra, Creepers grew from the same roots as Deafheaven, but in a noticeably different direction.

All proceeds from this show will go to the fire relief fund for victims of the Oakland Ghostship fire.
