THE ATOM AGE find their inspiration from the dust covered collections of unhinged 60’s punk and R&B, whose crazed energy was once misconceived as a better fit for your trashcan than for your turntable. While taking many of their cues from these primitive pilgrims of punk, The Atom Age still strive to lay down their own modernized take on the sound. The band’s new record, Hot Shame, was co-produced by Blag Dahlia of the Dwarves, and channels a wide range…

SNUGGLE sounds a bit like if you took the first few records of all of Samiam, Crimpshrine and Rancid, artfully smashed them to pieces and even more artfully reassembled them in to one giant record and updated it so it wasn’t a boring throwback or some inept aping. MEA CULPA Television fucks Blitz at a Zounds show, aborts Replacements, Wipers clean up the mess. GOOP Pop punk crust punk! FACEBOOK INVITE!

YOGURT BRAIN is Jammin’ Econo. Yogurt Brain is Hippies because Punks=Hippies. The Yogurt Brain ship is navigated by an Oakland songwriter who thinks Charles Foster Kane is just fantastic. A perfect date with Yogurt Brain includes Copy Centers, Wallace and Gromit, and Suffocation. The most members of the live experience currently equate two – guitar and drums. Self-releasing their own cassettes and LP’s for the last 5 years – Yogurt Brain is fiercely and stupidly DIY because everyone else makes…

SLEEPER HOLD Formerly known as Blackout Hawaii. A vibrant and bona fide boneyard of some of the Bay Area’s most wonderfully unknown gigging musicians. A cornucopia of arts and crafts loving individuals, as eager to fashion you your very own goat horn basket to fill with fruits and veggies, as we are to sing you a song. Only one group is a sure fire lock to be your new favorite band. Only one group is a sure fire lock to…

BEATNIKS is a punk band in Oakland, featuring members of Violent Change, Life Stinks, The World and Andy Human & The Reps. BEATNIKS are serious: they don’t watch TV. Here’s what people have to say about the BEATNIKS demo tape: “…Great downer rock n’ roll / proto-punk for fans of Charles Manson (the cult leader, not the musician) and hand-rolled cigarettes…disgusted crooner vocals and a desperate urban feel.” -Alex from France (MRR) “Heavy KBD/protopunk influence (think Penetrators, early Gizmos etc.)…

VANESSA SILBERMAN Vanessa’s live shows (often touring solo or featuring other players) and music has been compared to the raw bare bones rock ‘n roll of Nirvana & The Ramones along with the appeal of Liz Phair & Christie Hynde, authenticity of classic artists such as Patti Smith & Neil Young & the pop sensibilities of commercial radio artists such as Paramore. WOLF AND I CARISSA JOHNSON is addicted to playing rock and roll. The kind of sweaty, turbulent, in-your-face,…

EX-CULT “Memphis-based punk cyclone that no doubt has laid waste to a town near you recently. Chris Shaw lends a sneering, spitting toughness to the proceedings while the band flays riffs in loose, hairy mosh inducing menace behind him, touching on post-punk, psych sprawl, and early 80s hardcore while remaining beholden to none.” Fresh off the release of Negative Growth and a European tour, Memphis punks Ex-Cult are back with a three song single and handful of tour dates. New…
