In January 2004, a little music venue threw open its doors on an unassuming stretch of Fell Street in San Francisco's Hayes Valley. Over the past 10 years, a slew of amazing bands have graced its stage, from rock icons like Jonathan Richman and the Undertones to now-huge indie acts like M.I.A., Vampire Weekend, and Tune-Yards, to cutting edge electronic artists like Toro y Moi, Matthew Dear, and Neon Indian.

On January 7-12, Rickshaw Stop celebrates 10 years of kicking ass by throwing a mini-festival, featuring musical acts that have graced the stage at some point in the club's decade of service.

THE SPITS
Damn if The Spits don't make their brand of musical retardation all seem so easy: Like all their releases before them, they've stocked School's Out with 10 instant classics, with each and every song in its place and every single one of 'em indispensable. Don't know about you, but as far as I'm concerned, that's pretty rad and in the pantheon of all that was originally cool about first wave American punk (and why it still remains as essential as it did from day one), with this, their best release to date, The Spits have earned themselves a much deserved seat at the table alongside groups like the Ramones, Bullet-era Misfits, Crime, The Eat, et all...

Spiced up with some Are We Not Men-era Devo and maybe a little dash o' Chrome thrown in too (bassist Erin Wood's SPIDER side project showing through), School's Out is the accumulated, fetid stew of body fluids left behind in the mattress room of Plato's Retreat where some crotch crickets got introduced to the tableau and ultimately made the place really start to jump, and on these ten songs they're jumping every which way.... School's Out is so enjoyably diseased, your pie hole will stretch and bear pearly whiteness ear-to-ear. School's Out's a proverbial flea circus celebration of nihilism, wanton drunkenness, incorrigibility, juvenile delinquency, teen sex, vandalism, petty crime, hooliganism, self-mutilation and aliens-which is just about everything in a not-so-perfect world punk rock is supposed to be.

Somewhere between all the computer wielding, non musician filled backing track bands, neo white boy "soul" groups and the ever trudging CPR society that is punk rock in 2013, Crez DeeDee fits much like the wrong puzzle piece doesn't.

The only "never heard of you" rock n roll band worthy to begin the ascent.

Every good rock cliche is here while every bad one expunged. They do not jangle; they're not a garage band. They do not thrash; they're not a metal or punk band. They simply rock--and roll, with an emphasis on the roll.

You haven't heard a band like this in a long time, and that's because there hasn't been a rock n roll band below thirty in a long time.
