The Blind Shake
The Blind Shake
“The Blind Shake is at once spacey, primitive futuristic, and brutal: a kind of backyard extraterrestrial minimal surf-punk party. One guitar, one baritone guitar, a fuckload of reverb, and a drummer who deserves an Olympic medal.” –SF Weekly

Fronted by brothers Jim and Mike Blaha, with friend Dave Roper on drums, the trio have been tunneling through the underground since before telephones could talk. Having six full length albums to their credit, several singles, three collaborations with psych legend Michael Yonkers and another with downstroke warrior John Reis, the band continues to push the sliding scale between catchy punk songs and pitch red noise.

They have a brand new EP on Slovenly Records as well as a full-length LP on Goner Records.
Battery Electric
Battery Electric
The Battery Electric, Sultans of Denim, born on the crest of the Denim Equinox circa 2012, decimate with sound all those who wish to deny the party smoldering within everyone! Their sound evokes a fierce horde of loyal Heathens into most righteous dance hall warfare. Each time TBE step onstage they are gloriously swathed in the power only known to rock warriors equal in ability. They're here to party. And their legion will pull you into their berserker vortex, conjured by pure rock, heart, and soul. Don’t be frightened, be hungry, and prepare to feast on the sheer sonic energy that TBE administer to their pagan congregation!
Cicada Radio
Cicada Radio
Drift/Dream is Cicada Radio's fourth offering in the last five years and does not disappoint. Their latest record showcases their growth into a band more focused and tighter than they've ever been. From the opening chords of "Endless Vacation" to the swirling bliss of the title track "Drift/Dream," Cicada Radio deliver their trademark post-hardcore sonic assault propelled by Patrick Keefe's powerful vocals and Michael Keefe's haunting guitar melodies. The eight tracks contained on Drift/Dream will remind you what you've always loved about Cicada Radio - abrasive, catchy tunes that you can sing along to - but with songwriting and performance that elevate the band to new heights
