Additional Information

Headlining the second night are REDD KROSS.  Stitching together shards of raging hardcore with pieces of leftover glam infection and delivered with the grace of a drunken chainsaw juggler, REDD KROSS might not be often mentioned in the central spotlight in the early story of LA punk, but their trailblazing is undeniable.  GENTLEMAN JESSE & HIS MEN is an Atlanta-based  combo that revels in the bright, energetic power pop sounds of the early new wave era.  Full-throttle, throat-wrenching punk from Cleveland’s premiere skull crushers the HOMOSTUPIDS will likely make the club explode after psych/pop Texas wunderkinds FUNGI GIRLS beguile and seduce the room with their powerfully delicate and cavernous sound.  TELEDROME brings icy synth punk down from Calgary, Alberta, drizzling icy keyboard leads over pounding, dark rhythms all drenched in a dazzling monotone vocal veneer.  Brutally dark post punk from Cleveland is delivered by the PLEASURE LEFTISTS and FAR-OUT FANGTOOTH brings deranged goth garage noise from Philly.  Another neighbor to the north, KETAMINES create a rush of swirling pop psychedelia and ropes you into a Technicolor world that we never knew existed in Calgary.  Heart-stopping power pop from Atlanta’s BARRERACUDAS and hard pounding rock from ginger brother-sister Chicago duo WHITE MYSTERY open the day’s music marathon.
