$12 ADV $15 door
Swingin' Utters have been kicking around the San Francisco Bay Area for 25 years now. Theyve met their wives and their best friends on these streets; theyve 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. Thats 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: 1995s 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. http://swinginutters.com/
Gallows Bound - Formed in 2012 in Winchester VA, GALLOWS BOUND consists of a group of six childhood friends who all grew up together in their local punk scene. When they werent thrashing in their former punk and metal bands, they would play acoustic instruments at house parties, bonfires, and basements. Although deeply rooted in the traditional bluegrass of their home in Virginia, GALLOWS BOUND has a strong affection for their upbringing in punk rock and stitches their influences together in a blazing fury of Appalachian Punk Bluegrass. The band thumbs their nose at tradition in every sense which allows them to weave through many different scenes. Pushing the boundaries in all genres, their diverse range has landed GALLOWS BOUND on varying stages from iconic country landmark Gruene Hall in Texas to NYCs legendary punk house C-Squat.
Wasted Breath -
Wasted Breath has perfected their unique combo of witty sing- alongs, brash guitar leads, show-off drum fills, & "fuck you" attitude. This band will kick your teeth in, make you shake your ass, & keep you smiling from the very first downbeat. A treat for Rock & Rollers of all ages & musical tastes.
