Gunsafe- is Maximum C&W, bringing a fire to country and folk that's has more to do with punk than honkytonk, from Arcata
John Underwood- a multi-instrumental solo artist from Reno, NV with an unusual setup. He's placed eight instruments around him all running into a loop pedal, so he can create a full folk band sound live in front of the audience with banjo, acoustic guitar, accordion, trumpet, trombone, glockenspiel, electric bass, and an acoustic style drum setup with cajon, washboard and some cymbals. His music has spawned out of the ashes of his folk-pirate-gypsy band The Deadly Gallows, and the influences of his current folk-gypsy projects Six Mile Station and Dirty Kid Discount. A lot of people claim to be a one man band, but John will show you in one set how to put together all the pieces for such a thing, and what that full band would sound like.

Steaksauce Mustache is a four piece chaotic rock 'n' roll band from Southern Oregon.
People often ask, "Hey, that's a funny name for a band, how'd you come up with that?" to which we promptly respond by detonating a full fledged badger-bomb assault, to which the likes no man, woman, or child has ever seen.
Ravenous badgers attack from all directions, cutting off all possible paths of escape. There are no survivors. Not even Burt Reynolds, with his slick whiskers, freshly pressed jeans, and worn out cowboy boots, can make it out alive from this apocalyptic event.
The badgers shred apart all present beings with their vicious poison fangs, then sprouting sparrow wings, they initiate their world-wide migration, hunting non-believers of their overlord, whom is Steaksauce Mustache. They kamikaze dive-bomb their nuclear powered bodies with extreme precision into neighboring sky scrapers and small farmsteads, causing the total annihilation of cats, llamas and turtles.
From the fiery remnants of the radioactive nuclear fallout, rises the almighty Phoenix Badger who reserves no mercy for mankind. He will judge all who speak with a South Jersey accent, and their unending attempts to be part of the "in" crowd. With his laserbeam eyes, he will cut down their newly purchased assortment of TapOut shirts and rainbow variety packs of rubber band bracelets.
No sir, not even Bruce Willis, Bruce Lee, Bruce Campbell and the guy that was the other half founder of Campbell's soup (Joseph Campbell) can tame this beast.
Prepare yourselves and pray, for you are about to witness an event like no other. You will share, on fading breath, with your children upon your deathbed, of the day that Steaksauce Mustache arose to supreme power.
That day... That day is today.

Uncle Angry- Punk Band From Reno
Reno, We Have A Problem- In the summer of 2010, Reno, We Have A Problem was formed in response to Chris and Logan being kicked out of another band for suggesting that, "Black Flag is a pretentious bullshit." Further affirming their mutual claim with: "Yeah, Henry Rollins' is fucking clown shoes."
Three weeks, four days, and seventeen hours later, Foo Phlegming and Cory Smith joined the group. The four agreed that the only solution to a world filled with amazingly talented musicians who cared deeply about their craft was to demean it with songs about drinking, fighting, and fucking.
In February of the following year (2011) the foursome began playing shows at bars that would soon close their doors permanently immediately after their performance. Never stopping to wonder, even for a moment, if this was a dubious consequence, the four proceeded to play every single weekend night for the next two years.
A string of far-from near-miss singles, one completely unsuccessful album, three drummers and a new bass player later (the working title for the upcoming 2015 album), RWHAP stands proudly for all that is stale-beer by flickering neon-light mediocrity.
"It's less important that we be technically 'talented' insomuch as we desire a train-wreck sense of captivation from spectators," they explained their expectations, further clarifying the band's governing goals and direction, "We'd rather put on a fun show than worry about looking cool." It is safe they accomplish neither.

SWINE- LOS ANGELES METAL
Qarin- Formed in June 2012, Qarin is the mash up of a few local Reno bands: En Malem Crucem, Miscreated, and Ethereal Reaping. These musicians came together with musical tastes spanning the many different sub-genres of metal. The idea conceived by this motley mashup of musicians was one of bringing those many and varying tastes in metal together into one big melting pot of epicness.
They also had a secondary view and objective: to bring the passion and party back into metal. In these modern days, they believe the old gods of metal are dying off and the aggressive ambiance with them. Now is the time to return metal to the days of decadence.
Qarin, in middle eastern folklore, is the Jinn every person is born with that tells them to do evil things. In essence, it is the voice of sin. Now Qarin has returned to scream the message of rebellion and hedonism back into a scene that has forgotten its own ways.
The band has seen a few musician changes over the last three years. Justin Martinez (Guitar), and Mark Rodriguez (Guitar) graced the sound with their passion but parted ways amicably with the band, leaving the sound to be rounded out by Diego Martinez (Guitar). The rest of the line up still remains: Adam "The Steel Cutter" Weisshar (Bass), Theodore Poundcake (Drums), Aaron Canon (Guitar), and Divah (Vocals). Qarin has been honored to share the stage with the likes of Demon Hunter, Hemlock, Saving Alleya, Laid in Stone, Mobile Death Camp (featuring Mike Bishop, Oderus Urungus of Gwar), Hatriot (Featuring Zetro Souza of Exodus), Winds of Plague, Arkaik, Alterbeast, Arsonists Get All the Girls, Kataklysm, Macawber, Conducting from the Grave, Lord of War, The Kennedy Veil, Aborted, and many others.
Qarin shows all the signs of continuing upward movement with no ceiling. The road ahead is a long battle, but they will stop at nothing to conquer all challenges. Qarin will prevail.

The Swingin' Utters have been kicking around the San Francisco Bay Area for 25 years now. They’ve met their wives and their best friends on these streets; they’ve grown and aged right here in the Bay Area. This has ignited the very essence of what goes into their value system and more importantly their music, because it is a reflection of those experiences. For example, the band took a break to raise their families, right at the height of their popularity! Did it faze them? Not really. That’s the thing with these guys. It is family first, with music always germinating within those life choices. During the Utters’ semi-hiatus, they all continued playing music in bands like Druglords of the Avenues, the Re-volts and Filthy Thieving Bastards. Their life experiences influence what goes into their records. A case in point is their debut: 1995’s The Streets of San Francisco; their first full length and an essential “streetpunk” masterpiece. Fat Mike took notice of their grit and honesty, and signed them to Fat Wreck Chords. From there they put out a ton of great records, including A Juvenile Product of the Working Class, Five Lessons Learned, Brazen Head, Swingin’ Utters and Dead Flowers, Bottles, Bluegrass, and Bones. For 10 years the Utters toured relentlessly with the likes of Rancid, NOFX, Dropkick Murphys and everyone in between. Which brings us back to celebrating their 25th anniversary, the band fully recharged with their second album in three years and no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Kevin Seconds- has been the lead singer and principal songwriter of seminal American hardcore punk band 7Seconds for over 3 decades now.
“I started in 7Seconds when I was 18, full of anger, energy and drive by utter boredom. I’m 53 now, I am still angry and I still have lots of energy but I’m never bored. Ever”.
In about half of that time, he has also recorded and toured as a solo artist, captivating crowd around the world with his passionate, soulful and intimate performances.
To date, Kevin has released 6 albums internationally and has played and toured with the likes of Elliott Smith, Bob Mould, Exene Cervenka (X), Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music), Tim Barry (Avail), Johnny Two Bags (Social Distortion) and bands as diverse as Rancid, Lucero, Andrew Jackson Jihad and Bad Brains.
“It’s always an honor to play with people whose bands I’ve loved and have been inspired by but considering that so many of these people are some of the best singer-songwriters on the planet, I consider myself luckier than most to have gotten a chance to play with them”.
Kevin has been called 'a pop troubadour with a protest singer's heart' and his new songs are startlingly catchy and impeccably well-crafted.
“My favorite was by some writer years back who referred to me as ‘a Dunkin Donuts Dylan’. It wasn’t complimentary but I’ll take that one…hahaha.”
His 2014 album, 'Off Stockton' features 11 original songs, showcasing to an even greater extent, his unique brand of rootsy, melodic and heartfelt folk music. With Kevin, there is always an edge and urgency that could only be fueled by a lifetime love of punk rock music. Add pedal steel guitars, strings, Hammond B3 organ and lush, dreamy harmony vocals of Kevin's wife Allyson and you get one of the loveliest albums made in recent times.
Kevin quickly followed up ‘Off Stockton’ with the release of ’New Years Rulin’s’, his song interpretation of Woody Guthrie’s 33 new years resolutions for the year 1943, a project very near and dear to his heart.
“I’m always moved by everything Woody Guthrie….his voice, his songs, his activism and courage. For years I’ve wanted to do something personal with those sweet little new years resolutions of his. I finally figured out how I could and I’m really psyched and proud of this new record”.
One of the hardest working performers in the underground music community today, 2015 promises to be an another extremely busy year for Kevin as he embarks on more touring to support both ’Off Stockton' and ‘New Years Rulin’s’ and his latest project, writing, recording and sharing 400 new and original songs, 1 or more released every single day of 2015.
Another Damn Disapointment (A.D.D)- are a punk rock band from Sacramento, CA. They have released three full length albums, toured the country many times, shared the stage with the best bands in the business, and played thousands of shows since their formation in 2001.
They released their third full length entitled "Relentless" on Felony Records January 30th 2009. Check out the songs, check out the videos, check out a show, this band does not disappoint.
Another Damn Disapointment won the Volcom Band Joust competition in their hometown in 2003 then landed a record deal with Volcom Entertainment at the Band Joust finals in Los Angeles.

Heavy beats collide with haunting analog synths and 90s alt rock attitude to create a compelling soundtrack for the new dark age.

Rock 'N' Roll Suicides-formed in the summer of '09. They are a garage/punk rock 'n' roll band based out of La Puente, CA. After more than 10 years of playing in many punk bands, Rudy & Jeanette decided they wanted to start something different from what they had been doing. They decided to start from scratch and build the band from the ground up. Still sticking to their punk rock roots, they preferred not to be categorized to one genre, but are more than happy to have been compared to some of their biggest influences (X, The Stooges, Queens Of The Stone Age and a punk version of The White Stripes). Just to name a few...
Started as a two piece band, their live shows were very stripped down and raw. And with a wall of sound coming out from their set up, they had no problem keeping up with 3 to 5 piece bands and had been constantly mistaken for more than two people when playing live. Flash forward to the beginning of 2016 (7 years after they formed) Suicides decided they had accomplished what they could as a two piece and were ready to move forward with a third member. After 2 years as our roadie on tour, we knew Robert would be the best fit for the band. Now Suicides are Rock'n as a power trio and are coming to a town near you!! So keep checking back for tour dates!

The Big News is more than just a band. It is a movement.

The Habituals-At first, The Habituals started off as The Branks with a completely different line up from now, until the first original member came in to sing, Kat Atomik. She, along with Andy, Perry, and Justin comprised the first line up of The Habituals. After some time Justin left the band and left the drummer seat open, that's when Tom came in to fill the slot. Soon the band started to take off and landed shows in and out of town. Unfortunately things don't always go as planned, and Perry and Andy left the band. Kat and Tom stayed together and wrote all new music, save two songs they kept, Tantrum and Snake Oil. After some time they recruited Billy on the bass and Molly on the drums and moved Tom to guitar. Molly was replaced by Barry and the band found their line up. Shows played and fans became abundant, but Barry left the band and was replaced by Eric. Billy, long time member, decided to follow other interests and was replaced by Brenda on bass, but soon after, Eric and Brenda walked away leaving the two originals to find new members. That's when Zane came in on the bass, weaving lines that have crushed all before him. Drummer Jeff soon followed and the shows came again, but Jeff needed to pay more attention to his family so once again The Habs were left without a drummer. And now, after a few months searching they found Dave, with the skills that have brought the other three to their knees and thanked all creation, The Habituals are back at it.

The Goddamn Gallows- Spit from the heart of America's Rust Belt, arising from a night of flophouse violence. Drifting across the states, they cemented their sound in Portland, OR and later in Los Angeles, CA, where they lived in abandoned buildings, squatter camps, storage units and shoebox apartments.
In 2007, they left everything behind and spent the next 4 years living out of whatever vehicle would get them to the next town. Building upon their original sound of twanged-out, punk rock gutterbilly (Life of Sin 2004 and Gutterbillyblues 2007), they began picking up stray musicians along the way and adding to their sound; washboard, accordion, mandolin and banjo (Ghost of the Rails 2009 and 7 Devils 2011) creating a sound referred to as "hobocore", "gypsy-punk" or "americana-punk", while never being stuck in any one sound.
Enter 2018 and The Goddamn Gallows have reinvented themselves once again with The Trial. From rockabilly, psychobilly and punk rock, to bluegrass and metal, The Trial infuses disparate sounds into a new strange recipe of seamless genre bending profundities.
Chock full of impromptu antics of the shocking variety and hauntingly eclectic instrumentation, The Goddamn Gallows have made legions of fans with their legendary, live shows.
Gutter Demons (official)- Since their unholy birth in 2001, Gutter Demons have been tearing up the scene across Canada, USA and Europe with their intense stage shows, raucous rock n' roll music, red-blooded Rockabilly roots, Punk and Heavy Metal potency and downright dirty musicianship. This hard-working three-piece band brought their unique approach to their genre.
The Demons “psycho-sound” is refreshing and deeper than most of their contemporary peers. Gutter Demons take great pride in releasing rich & well written albums. After all, the Devil has always had the best tunes! Quickly becoming Canada's most recognized disciples of high-octane Psychobilly, they have gained a strong worldwide following playing their unique brand of mutant Rock n’ roll.
Depuis toujours, Gutter Demons pratique un style impur de Rock' n Roll combinant le Rockabilly sauvage rouge sang ainsi que l'énergie brute du Punk et du Heavy Metal communément appelé ''Psychobilly''. La versatilité dont ils font preuve sur leurs instruments respectifs, l'énergie contagieuse des spectacles et leur originalité bien à eux font de ces mutants un des groupes les plus respectés de l'underground canadien.
The Strikers- Hailing from San Diego California, The Strikers sound is a mixture of aggressive punk rock, metal and psychobilly. Joey(guitar/lead vocals) and longtime friend Donovan(drums) were tired of trying to force their musical styles into bands that did not share their vision. They began writing songs for a straight forward rock band that would not compromise its sound for anyone. Almost by luck they found Rob(upright bass/backing vocals) who also shared their vision. The trio began writing and performing, mixing their own, very different, musical styles into one aggressive “kick-in-the-neck rock n’ roll band".... See MoreSee Less

Firebug- Spectra Records recording artist Firebug have captivated audiences at music venues and festivals across the globe. Performances in North America that include appearances at SXSW Austin, CMJ NYC and NXNE in Toronto. Their shows at festivals in the European Union that include Sonisphere Festival in Knebworth UK and London's famous Dublin Castle just scratch the surface of the mileage that Firebug has covered since their inception. Their signature modern rock sound injects a New Orleans influence with elements of 70's rock, grunge, blues and folk rock.
Sharing stages with big name acts like Iron Maiden, Iggy Pop, Alice In Chains, Tom Morello(Rage Against The Machine), The Cult, Dave Catching(Eagles Of Death Metal) and many other internationally acclaimed acts.
FireBug's upcoming Spectra Records full length release co-produced by Chris Goss(Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, Queens Of The Stone Age) features multiple singles that include the album's debut single featured on Yahoo Music titled "Wine Water & Bread" which describes how the simple joys in life are all you really need. Their follow up single 'Strange Days' produced by Chris Goss recent rave review in Elmore Magazine "Firebug blends Optimism with Blistering rock n roll fury on 'Strange Days'".
Their latest single 'Sinner' was recently featured on New Orlean's modern rock station 106.1 FM The Underground. Canadian Rock Zine Pure Grain Audio states: "'Sinner' is a lesson in how modern bluesy swamp rock should both sound and feel. Juliette Tworsey's vocals perfectly match the song's great groove and it's truly hard to avoid listening to the song on repeat." In the UK Firebug was voted best songwriters of the year and winners of the coveted UK New Music Video Awards and has also won the Best International Act two years in a row at the UK Exposure Music Awards. Exemplary reviews from a multitude of industry publications include high praise from: HITS Magazine, LA Weekly, Time Out NY, Elmore Magazine, Pure Grain Audio and The Vinyl District to name a few.
Building a following from Los Angeles to Chicago, from New Orleans to London and beyond FireBug have proven their dedication in the music business and will continue to grow their presence. Described as a Chrissie Hynde-meets-Grace Slick 70's vibe, with her own unique twist and flavor, lead vocalist Juliette Tworsey says "cutting our musical teeth in and around local hot spots in Chicago, Los Angeles and New Orleans, has allowed us to connect on a deeper level not only with our music and fans but also with ourselves." Guitarist Jules Shapiro adds, "It was the laissez-faire attitude that attracted us to New Orleans. The depth and musical soul of this eclectic city have inspired our sound."
Firebug has performed at many festivals in New Orleans that include; Satchmo Festival, French Quarter Festival, NOLA Fringe Festival and many others. Venues in New Orleans include the famed One Eyed Jacks, Gasa Gasa, House Of Blues and Howlin' Wolf. In Los Angeles, Firebug has hosted the Firelight Music Festival in Silverlake multiple times and have showcased their best material at The Viper Room in West Hollywood and The Echo in Echo Park. In London, England they received critical acclaim for their performances at famous venues such as Dublin Castle, Half Moon, Barfly, and their performance at the 80,000+ Sonisphere Festival Knebworth.
The band recently re-located to Joshua Tree, CA as they continue to grow their global following and are very excited to release their highly anticipated album on Spectra Records. They plan on touring extensively during 2017.

Ten Pole Drunk-From Tacoma, Washington, we are Ten Pole Drunk.
We play because we love it, we drink because we can, and we are broke because of both.
6347- Taking control of the mic our frontman tears down the stage. He will jump down and stir up the pit or climb as high as he can get. He can belt it out louder than you can think. He's everywhere at once. He grew up on black coffee, staring at the wall, ready for the big takeover.
James- Forget what you think about guitar. Seriously. James is a force to be reckoned with. With lead and rhythm mashed together at an uncanny speed, with custom gear and south paw attitude, you can't find another guitar player like him.
Ricky-boy- If you like root notes and simple structures, Ricky-boy is not your bassist. Never playing what you'd expect, he will lay down a bass line so sick you'll be infected, addicted and begging for more.
Racket- Slow and quiet are two words this drummer is unfamiliar with. A rapid fire cannon of sonic devastation is relentlessly driven by her lonely single pedal. She effortlessy walks the line between control and chaos, somehow managing to keep the rest of Ten Pole Drunk in line.
With love for old-school hardcore, Ten Pole Drunk throws down fast, loud, rowdy, drunken shows for all to enjoy. In the old west a sobriety test was walking ten lamp poles. If you made it, you were good to go home. There were alcoholics that mastered this skill even though they were plastered and earned the title Ten Pole Drunk.

Greenriver Thrillers-Formed in 2002, Greenriver Thrillers are a three-piece noise rock band formed in Seattle, Washington. All three members (Gary Hughes, Alan Alfano and Phil Smith) were born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. Each of them have an extensive background performing in several bands in the local scene over the years – which ultimately caused them to cross paths and form a cohesive unit of sound that they have perfected.
The musical style of the Thrillers blends many elements of rock ‘n roll ranging from classic punk, metal and even shades of experimental music. They have a wide range of musical influences including Unsane, Retox, Gaythiest and Unwound.
On their most recent release, “Retarder” they have followed up their self titled release with a heavier more straightforward sound that is impacting the local music scene. Jake Weller from SeattleRockGuy said recently online; “Before anybody else in the PNW was bringing back the crunchy, abrasive noise rock of yesteryear (think Touch&Go/AmRep), these guys were doing it. Over the last decade or so, I've often thought of them as the most underrated band in Seattle. Check out their new album and judge for yourself.”
When performing live they offer up a shockingly loud show that proves that they are in sync musically and have been playing together for a long time. Even in small spaces they manage to fill them with an enormous amount of energy while assaulting the audience with punk rock perfection.... See MoreSee Less

Coyote Bred-is a rock band from Seattle with a blend of pop and punk undertones. Started in 2014, released two EPs, and countless West Coast tours.
Joe Jack Talcum- Joe Jack Talcum, a founding member of the Dead Milkmen, began playing solo acoustic shows in 2004. He performs his own songs as well as solo versions of some Dead Milkmen songs. Throughout the past 7 years he has performed throughout the United States as well as in Canada, Germany, and Romania. He has one live album, "Live in the Studio" (cd) a split 12 inch with Mischief Brew ("Photographs from the Shoe Box"), a split CD with Ratboy ("Joe Jack Brand Talcum") and a collection of home recordings ("Home Recordings 1984-1997").
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.

Vague Choir-It started when Mark started playing solo shows in 2003 as he sought his own place in the neon-rock world of Reno, Nevada. Playing mostly as "Mister Vague" with a rotating cast of cohorts, Earnest recorded songs and played shows throughout the West Coast.
This led to a debut Mister Vague release in 2004 from Seattle label Unsmashable Records and three CDs in four years from Slothtrop Records of Madison, Wisconsin. Mister Vague albums were played on 100-plus radio stations in the U.S. and Canada and earned sales on iTunes, Rhapsody and Napster. Mister Vague (with local singer/songwriter Kung Fu Sophie) also contributed a cover of Neil Young’s “Bandit” to the critically acclaimed “More Barn” charity CD for the Bridge School that Slothtrop released in 2007.
That same year that Mister Vague -- which by this time included Marcus Mayhall and Jason Thomas -- released its third album, “Allergic To Everything." It was recorded and co-produced by Alan Sparkhawk of the indie-pop band Low (Sub Pop). A couple of years later, Mark and Jason also were named as two of the "top 101" residents in Reno who built the music scene, as chosen by peers and published in Reno News and Review magazine.
Mister Vague went dormant in 2009 while everyone pursued other things. In 2012, the last, trio version of the band -- Mark, Marcus, Jason -- reformed as Vague Choir. The plan is to release old Vague recordings as a sampler in 2012, followed by all new material in 2013.
The intense, near-punk velocity of Vague Choir shows have earned the band a loyal audience in such rock-centric towns as San Francisco, Sacramento, Seattle and Portland. Montana looms!... See MoreSee Less
