Coolzey-
Golden era hip-hop roots planted in black Iowa dirt and tempered by 90s alternative era rock influence yields a juxtaposition of the dark, horrific nature of life paired with a slapstick and comedic view of the world, allowing for a wide, unpredictable arsenal of material ranging from soul-spilling indie bedroom rock to wise-cracking battle rap and on to radio pop.

Coolzey stepped into the public eye around 2005 with a demo album and a series of exploratory DIY tours with rapper/comedian and friend Schaffer the Darklord. Interest spread quickly and Coolzey found himself touring alongside hip-hop legends from Brand Nubian and Jurassic 5 as well as punk rock heroes like Dead Milkmen. Coolzey’s first album ‘The Honey’ was released in 2010 and second official full-length ‘Hit Factory’ in 2013. In these albums as well as in a number of EPs, collaborations and side projects, he finds his niche as a songwriter, navigating hip-hop, rock, punk and pop in the spirit of genre defying influences such as Ween, Beck, The Beastie Boys and Outkast.

Coolzey’s love for multiple genres can also be evidenced in his record label Public School Records, which curates music from the classic hip-hop of Bru Lei to the art pop of Belly Belt.

Fang one of the most crazy punk bands from the 80s is gonna rock your skull at SheasTavern Reno with Elderly Abuse from Oakland, Pug Skullz from the back woods of somewhere and our local boys Uncle Angry will be opening up this party


Fang is a punk rock band that originated in 1980. Fang was originally part of the punk rock scene in Berkeley, California in the 1980s. The band broke up in 1989 when key member Sam McBride was sent to prison for killing his girlfriend, Dixie Lee Carney. Upon his release, in 1995, McBride changed his name to Sammytown and reformed Fang.

Fang's first record under the name 'Fang' was actually more of an experimental record, according to the band; the "Yukon Fang" single. Fang guitarist Tom Flynn and bass player Brian Beattie, his former bandmate from the bands "Tapeworm" and "Safety Patrol", put out "Yukon Fang" as a duo and thus Fang was born. The original version of Fang toured the country once, only to break up shortly thereafter with Beattie moving on to Texas where he later formed the band Glass Eye. In the early fall of 1981 Flynn began playing with drummer Chris Ritter. They soon added bass player Chris Wilson and began playing shows in the SF Bay area as a three piece, with Flynn on vocals.While this was happening, Sam McBride, the band's soon-to-be vocalist, was singing with future Fang drummer Greg Langston in the band "Shut up". In early 1982 Ritter was replaced with drummer Joel Fox, and at Fox's audition he brought along his friend McBride, who volunteered to be the band's singer. The lineup thus solidified as McBride (vocals), Chris Wilson (bass), Tom Flynn (guitar), and Joel Fox (drums). Together they contributed the song "Fun with Acid" on the Not so Quiet on the Western Front compilation LP. Shortly thereafter, guitarist Tom Flynn created "Boner Records" and released their debut LP and EP Landshark and Where the Wild Things Are. Tim Stiletto drummed on the latter. These two releases are now considered classic East Bay punk.

In January 1986, the "Spun Helga" LP was recorded in West Germany with McBride singing vocals, and two Germans named Joe (Guitar) and Ollie (Drums) playing instruments. We Bite Records in Germany released the LP, but in the U.S. it was handled by National Trust Records. Fang next released was 1987's "A Mi Ga Sfafas?" (The title literally means "Give Me Head?"). The lineup during this era was McBride, Bill Collins (guitar), Joe Miller (bass), and Steve Chinn (drums). Drummer Mike Branum replaced Chinn and Fang recorded the album "Pissed-Off Buddah", which remained unreleased until 2008, when it was released with Fang's other albums "Spun Helga" and "A Mi Ga Sfafas?"

In 1989, during a heroin binge, Sam McBride strangled his girlfriend, Dixie Lee Carney, to death and was sentenced to six years in prison for voluntary manslaughter.

After a long break, Fang regrouped in 1996 and put out the "Electric Chair" single on Man's Ruin Records. The lineup at this time included Sam McBride (vocals) (Sam had recently legally changed his name to "Sammytown"), Greg Langston (Drums), Bill Burnett (Guitar) and Josh Levine (Bass). This incarnation of the Band recorded the "American Nightmare" LP on Wingnut Records.

In 1989, Boner Records released Fang's first compilation album, Landshark/Where the Wild Thing Are. The album included Fang's debut album and debut EP.

In 1999, Jim Martin (from Faith No More) joined on guitar, and recorded four songs for the Hello Records CD Fish and Vegetables, which was released as a split LP by fellow punk rock groups Dr. Know, and Hellions In May 2000, Sammytown and Jim Martin, along with Casey Orr (Gwar, Rigor Mortis) on bass, and Dallas drummer Clint Phillips did two shows in Texas. One at Trees in Dallas, and a sold out show at Emo's in Austin.

By 2001, the band was composed of Sammytown, Brian Schopflin (bass), Jonny Manak (guitar), Alby Wasted (guitar),and Ike Eichensehr (drums). Sammytown, Brian, Jonny, Alby and Ike also started The Resistoleros, a Oakland-based rock 'n' roll band. Steel Cage Records released the Resistoleros CD Rock 'N Roll Napalm in 2003.

In 2004, the Live Cheap" CD' came out on Malt Soda Recordings featuring Sammytown (vocals), Brian Schopflin (bass), Ike Eichensehr (drums), Alby Wasted (guitar) and Jimmy Crucifix (guitarist for 1980s hardcore band Crucifix and hard rock band Proudflesh) also on guitar. This is the only Fang recording with two guitarists.

In 2004, the band toured the United States. Sammytown, Jimmy Crucifix (guitar), Brian Schopflin (bass)/Bubba Dennis (bass) and Ike Eichensehr (drums) toured as Fang in the Spring of 2004 and as the Resistoleros and Fang in November 2004 with Sam, Jimmy, Brian, Ike and Greg Elliott (rhythm guitar).

In January 2005, Sammy, Jimmy, Brian and Ike recorded a cover of Agression's (1980s hardcore–Narcore band) song "Salty Leather" for a tribute to Agression members Mark Hickey and Henry Knowles, who had died. Dave Haro and JellyRoll came up with the idea for the tribute. The CD, Taking Out A Little Agression, was released on Dr. Strange Records in 2007 and featured bands including JFA, McRad, DI, Ill Repute, Dr. Know, Verbal Abuse, MDC, Oppressed Logic, Shattered Faith and Dave Haro–JellyRoll's band KatKiller.

From 2005–2008, Fang performed with the steady line-up of Sammytown, Jimmy Crucifix, Brian Schopflin, and Greg Langsten (returning to the drums). As of writing (July, 2012) the line-up consists of Sammytown (Vocals), Jamey Dangerous (Drums), Brian Schopflin (Bass), J-Stain Werthless (Lead Guitar), Mat ('The Kid') McCoy (Guitar). Original member Tom Flynn has re-emerged and played live with the band on at least one occasion in 2012. He also contributed to the latest Fang album, 'Here Come the Cops".

In 2011, Malt Soda released the CD "Pissed Off Buddha", comprising three Fang albums - "Spun Helga", "A Mi Ga Sfafas?", and "Pissed Off Buddha" - the latter being a previously unreleased album recorded in 1988, in a double disc package that included a live DVD of the band.

Born in Chicago in 1986, singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist, Shawn James discovered the power of soul in music he experienced while growing up on the south side.

His blend of blues, folk & soul music is full of contrasts -- dark and light, anger and joy, earthy and airborne – while remaining gritty and real.

Since releasing his first album in the fall of 2012, his music has reached millions of people. His songs have been featured on CBS, HBO and most recently in Sony Playstation’s trailer for their upcoming blockbuster game “The Last of Us 2”.

Shawn James brings extreme passion to his music. You feel it in the imaginative, highly nuanced songwriting and see it in the powerful live shows where there’s never the slightest hesitation and nothing is held back. And, most importantly, you can hear it resonate in Shawn’s most powerful instrument: the unique, soulful voice that sounds like it is literally being torn out of his heart…and it is something you won’t soon forget.

GYGAX is a no-frills, classic rock/heavy metal hybrid, heavily steeped in the imagery of fantasy literature and role playing games, and rooted in the musical stylings of metallic ‘70s rockers Thin Lizzy and Deep Purple, with equal parts metal and boogie-inducing groove. Though their name is attributed to the creator of Dungeons & Dragons, the band has described themselves more simply as “a beacon and an anthem for anyone who’s interests lie in creativity and the powers of imagination.”

Hailing from Ventura, California, GYGAX was born out of the ashes of vocalist/bassist Eric Harris’ previous heavy-metal brainchild, Gypsyhawk, whose Patience & Perseverance 2xLP also saw release through Creator-Destructor in 2009. Bryant Throckmorton, who played second guitar in Gypsyhawk also joins Harris in GYGAX on guitar. When Gypsyhawk decided to disband, Harris and Throckmorton took some time alongside friend and fellow guitarist Armand John Lizzy to begin demoing new material, then solidifying their lineup with Justin Dempsey on drums.

The debut from GYGAX, Critical Hits boasts nine feverishly triumphant burners backed by huge solos and even more massive choral melodies which come alive with a fuzzed-out and hazy attitude but immortalized with crystal clear production values on Critical Hits, an LP that could accidentally get sucked into your ragin’ uncle Bob’s dust-encrusted classic rock platters and your older brother’s equally grimy classic metal/early doom collection and blend right into either. The first public listen to the GYGAX sounds can be heard in an exclusive premiere of the album’s third fist-pumpin’ number, “Draw Breath,” which now thrives exclusively through a premiere at Decibel Magazine.

Void Vator-
www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfGCightOBI
www.facebook.com/voidvator/
Void Vator is a heavy hard rock band out of Los Angeles, California. Lucas Kanopa (Vocals/Guitar) and German Moura (Drums) visited Los Angeles from their native country of Uruguay to attend the NAMM show in winter of 2013, and immediately fell in love with the rock culture of the city. Both German and Lucas began working on establishing legal citizenship and played various bands in Los Angeles, chasing the elusive rock and roll dream as so many have before. In winter of 2015, Lucas met with guitarist Erik Kluiber at Amp Rehearsal Studios in North Hollywood. Erik had recently parted ways with his previous band Gypsyhawk (Metal Blade Records) and was looking for a new project to put his efforts into. Lucas and Erik hit it off musically and found that their playing styles, creativity, and musical direction were compatible and complimented each other. The first early version of Void Vator was formed around this time with a different lineup that did not yet feature either Lucas's childhood friend German Moura on drums or Sam Harman on bass.

Void Vator began writing material in North Hollywood and playing shows in the local Los Angeles Heavy Metal Rock scene. Erik was acquaintances with legendary rock producer Ulrich Wild from back in his days in Gypsyhawk. Ulrich had expressed interest in producing Gypsyhawk and stayed in touch with Erik after that band folded. Ulrich attended early Void Vator shows and one day approached the band with a recording deal with his new start up production company called WURMGROUP. The deal was modern and fair to both parties. Ulrich offered to produce and record and ep for Void Vator for no charge and split the proceeds evenly from the digital and physical sales of the EP. The music climate and industry has changed rapidly over the past 20 years. From his experience, Ulrich has been through all sorts of changes in his work environment even before pro tools was the standard recording software in studios. A forward thinker, Ulrich is always aware of shifts and changes in methodology and techniques within the music industry, and has always adapted to them so as not to be left behind. Void Vator was excited to be given this opportunity of being included as one of Ulrich's first WURMGROUP bands and have his production talents on their debut EP.

Before the EP was recorded, it became clear that the lineup at the time was not going to work out. Lucas reached out to his childhood friend German Moura and asked if he would be interested in playing drums in Void Vator. German was playing drums for White Wizzard at the time. German recorded drums for many songs that made it to the upcoming White Wizzard album which is scheduled for release this fall of 2017. Coincidentally, guitarist Erik Kluiber was the lead guitar player for White Wizzard on their 2010 recording “Over The Top” (Earache Records). Los Angeles is huge city, but the circle of professional heavy metal musicians is smaller than what you would expect. Many times, musicians will play in different versions of the same band only to find themselves in another band at the same time as in this case. Despite some of the drama associated with White Wizzard and it's revolving door of musicians, that band has always featured top caliber musicians. That being a fact, it is not surprising that both German and Erik were a part of White Wizzard's legacy at one point.

Along with German, Void Vator found a new bass player that would be in the band for about a year. This lineup recorded the debut ep “Dehumanized” at Ulrich's home studio dubbed “The Wilderness” in Los Angeles. Historic rock and metal albums have been recorded at Ulrich's cozy studio located behind his Los Angeles home. Brendon Small, the mastermind behind Metalocalypse and Galaktikon, recently released behind the scenes footage on Youtube to promote the new Galaktikon album which was recorded and shot right at “The Wilderness” studios. “Dehumanized” was recorded around the late fall/early winter holiday season of 2016. The debut single “Time has Come” was released digitally towards the beginning 2017 as a teaser to build a buzz for what was yet to come from Void Vator. “Time Has Come” was also released as the debut video shot and directed by German's girlfriend Janilee Svardstal. A talented film student and aspiring director, Janilee's video propelled the awareness of Void Vator and attained a global audience through well received Youtube views.
The “Time Has Come” video showcases the high energy and hook driven Heavy Rock approach that
Void Vator is becoming know for. Filled with catchy ear pleasing vocals, dual guitar theatrics, and driving precision beats, “Time Has Come” would be a contender for heavy rotation on Modern Rock Radio if Modern Rock Radio still played new music. Void Vator spent the first half of 2017 perfecting their stage craft by branching our regionally across Southern California and mixing the “Dehumanized” EP. It is also worth noting that just a little bit before this was all happening, singer/guitarist Lucas Kanopa filled in for Mark Sprietzer of DevilDriver to perform guitar duties during their slot at Ozzfest 2016 in Mexico City. This one off show was quite an exciting experience as you can imagine. It's common in Los Angeles for talented musicians to be involved in multiple music projects at the same time. Lucas also currently performs guitar for Heaven Below featuring Patrick Kennnison (Lita Ford, ex – Union Underground) and fills in for Patrick at the live rock karaoke showcase at Skinnys in North Hollywood when Patrick is on the road with Lita.

Nearing in on the “Dehumanized” cd release date of July 26th, 2017 complications arose between Void Vator and the bass player at the time. The band had been building up steam and getting out of town show offers in hard rock appreciating cities like San Diego on work days. This is common struggle for band members as it is complicated and difficult to make these shows happen, but happen they must for any serious rock band that wants to break out of their home town. This disagreement on gig policy lead to another lineup change. Void Vator changed up to a three piece for a short while to keep the momentum going. This change was not hard to pull off as Erik temporarily shifted over to bass which is the instrument he plays and while fronting and singing for Los Angeles stoner thrash metal band Ironaut. Void Vator pulled off the scheduled performances as a three piece, while looking for a suitable bass player to get band back to it's ideal four piece lineup. There must have been some sort of astrological phenomenon occurring because Sam Harman's name came up in discussion with Ulrich Wild. Erik had originally originally approached Sam a year previously to play bass for Void Vator, but Sam was busy in multiple projects including playing bass for Legal Tender featuring Jonah Nimoy the grandson of Leonard Nimoy (Spock) on guitar and vocals. This was a year later though, and Sam came out to a Wednesday night Void Vator performance at Skinnys Lounge in North Hollywood. After intensely watching the set, he said called back the following day and said, “I'm in, when is rehearsal?”. The next week he made his Void Vator debut onstage at the legendary Viper Room in West Hollywood.

After a successful “Dehumanized” Cd Release party on July 26th, 2017, the band has kept it's stride performing regionally in cities such as Las Vegas and working with Metal Assault, an up and coming Blog/Podcast/Heavy Metal promotions company based in Los Angeles that hosts shows all over California. Void Vator could not be any stronger than at his moment. Sam has brought a huge arsenal of creativity and talent to and already talented band. The piece is in place and the work has just begun. New songs are being constructed quickly while the “Dehumanized” CD is still being marketed. There plans for a new video in the work very soon and perhaps more videos to maximize the exposure of this outstanding debut release. The best way to keep up with Void Vator's activities is through social media pages such as Instagram and Facebook. Pick up “Dehumanized” directly through Wurmgroup's Big Cartel page at www.wurmgroup.bigcartel.com which offers both physical and digital copies. The cd is also available through all the standard digital outlets including itunes, amazon, spotify, etc. Pick up “Dehumanized” and get your first taste of what has just begun from Los Angeles's Void Vator.

When their songs kick off, you’re immediately met with a one-two punch of searing guitar riffs and pulverizing drums, a signature symbiosis of raucous garage-rock that singer/guitarist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller have perfected over the past decade. With their new release, Dollhouse, the band is eager to follow up last year’s critically-acclaimed PositiveThinking with urgent thoughts on the current climate of the world.Dollhouse wastes no time addressing those issues with its nine tracks clocking in at just smoke-drenched skies of Vancouver, B.C. at Raincity Recorders, during one of the province’s worst
wildfire seasons ever, Dollhouse is a product of the gloom that surrounds them and the rest of the world in these politically turbulent times. “Everything just feels like it’s sped up so rapidly and every
day, there’s some new shitty thing that’s making it feel apocalyptic,” Miller says. Black adds that they approached this album with “a more positive outlook,” but, ironically, the results veered darker.
Dollhouse, especially its stomping title track, is a response to the calamity and the toxicity that’s suffocating our Earth. Miller describes songs like bleary-eyed opener, “Woke Up Weird,” as a “theplanet-is-doomed” anthem, a track that exhales with frustration (“I feel the planet/giving up”) but is clearly not going down without a fight.
It’s an album that equally explores the personal and political, with the concept of a dollhouse acting as “both a reminder of the closed ecosystem we all inhabit, the grander scale, and the miniscule confines of our individual minds, neither of which we can escape from,” as Black explains. “The anxiety of existing is a throughline in the lyrics on Dollhouse.”When Dollhouse goes inward, it takes shape in the form of something The Pack A.D. has rarely
written about: love and relationships. “Not Alright” claws through buzzsaw riffs in search for happiness and “Because of You” is perhaps the most romantic track the band has ever written, like a hollowed ghost of a ‘50s pop song yearning for a connection.
Wherever aguish is in your life, the songs on Dollhouse want you to know you’re not alone. “For me,it’s less depressing and more commiserating,” Miller says. It’s a cathartic release that, in more ways than one, couldn’t arrive any sooner.

The Von Howlers-Bastard Garage Blues from The Slums

Delivering a bastardized brand of rock'n'roll best described as "psycho-blues", the Von Howlers are a four-piece band of matched misfits from the Pacific Northwest. The lyrics heavy, the riffs even heavier, their music is a combination of contemporary styles that drip with a range of classic influences. Assembled in 2015, and having finished recording their eponymous full-length in 2016, the Von Howlers focus on attaining a live, no-holds-barred sound, with their stage antics bordering on manic. They like to have fun. They enjoy setting things on fire. They hope your bus freezes up. They hope your old plane crashes. So, leave the kids at home, toss back that second shot of whiskey and move freely as the Von Howlers invite you to join them in howling shamelessly at the moon. Maybe a third shot of whiskey.
