THE FRUSTRATORS (feat. Mike Dirnt of Green Day)
THE FRUSTRATORS (feat. Mike Dirnt of Green Day)
THE FRUSTRATORS are a punk-and-roll four-piece with members of GREEN DAY, WATERDOG and VIOLENT ANAL DEATH. It's hard to pigeonhole or put them in any specific category. It's rare to see them live. One thing is for sure -- the band has its roots in an eclectic mix of styles. From elements of new wave punk with a bit of country twang, to moments of straight-ahead ball-busting hard rock, their unique collaborations make for some unexpected punk rock. All presented with top-notch musicianship and a flair for humor. "An enjoyable combination of new wave and bratty, goofball punk. It's no London Calling, but eclectic in its own way. Achtung Jackass skips from mid-tempo punk rock ('Hide and Seek') to Descendents-style jokers ('Frustrators Jingle') and even throws in a little Black Flag for good measure ('.25'). But it is a cover of the Cars' 'My Best Friend's Girl' that really sets the tone for the record, and the band's ability to earnestly incorporate the diverse catchiness of new wave that makes it so true blue." --AllMusic.com
THE PHENOMENAUTS
THE PHENOMENAUTS
SF's favorite space-surf android rockers! "These guys aren’t like anything you’ve seen or heard before ... I saw Phenomenauts play in both New York City and San Francisco; each time the place was jam-packed with people chanting 'Science and honor!' A few dozen were dressed as robots, and endless streams of chicks looked like they’d just landed in from an R-rated Jetsons episode. Fanfare of that sort doesn’t happen by coincidence." --Thrasher

“A band that lives, loves and rocks on the grand scale of the cosmos." --SF Weekly
The Kepi Ghoulie Band
The Kepi Ghoulie Band
The former leader of the Groovy Ghoulies. "His tunes are all about people being werewolves or vampires or in space, and they're catchy as fuck. Seriously, I see Kepi, and I am just in an amazingly upbeat mood the entire next week." -- Kansas City Pitch
Bryan McPherson
Bryan is known for his intense live performances, as well as insightful, poetic songwriting. He has shared the stage with the likes of rock and roll legend Chuck Berry, Black 47, H20, the Street Dogs and was recently spotted on tour opening up for the Dropkick Murphys'. This is Passionate, acoustic-punk from the heart. "Bryan McPherson pretty much defines the punk-folk genre for me. His songs rarely center on the usual love-lost, love-found boringness- instead he focuses on what it means to be from Dorchester, addiction, social, racial, sexual, and religious injustices. His performances are riveting, heartfelt, and downright intense." -Boston Band Crush
Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits
Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits
Bobby Joe Ebola and The Children MacNuggits was mightily formed in 1995 in a fast-food parking lot by guitarist Dan Abbott and singer Corbett Redford. The often funny and sometimes scary band built a dangerously loyal following of punks, misfits, elected representatives, perverts and intellectuals, before going on hiatus for the entire tenure of the Bush Administration. In 2009, the band rebuilt its war machine and is once again shocking contemporaries with toe-tapping uncomfortable truths.
