Harkening back to punk rock’s glory days of the 70s, Oklahoma outfit BRONCHO captures the aggression, DIY authenticity and youthful exhilaration of a bygone era and then drags it by the hair into the Here and Now, creating a fresh sound that’s unlike anything being played today. With echoes of THE REPLACEMENTS, IGGY & THE STOOGES and THE RAMONES, BRONCHO's exuberant ten song debut Can’t Get Past the Lips is a blisteringly cathartic 20 minute flash of gritty, crunching guitar work supported by an assaultive rhythm section and made whole by songwriter RYAN LINDSEY’s aggressive, yelping vocal work. Hailing from Hollywood, FL (not CA) - or as it's lovingly called Hollyweird - BEACH DAY is a girl-girl-boy trio who channels their mutual love of 60s girl groups and sunny California pop to make music that is purley fun and unpretentious. BEACH DAY make new music that's old at heart, and while it's as sunny and upbeat as their name may indicate, the band still rolls around in the mud to dirty it up with some southern murkiness. Vancouver six-piece CHAINS OF LOVE opens the show with their garage-soul that's a combination of Spector harmonies, gritty guitars, Motown basslines, rich, thumping drums and a pinch of nostalgia.
