    Down and Outlaws

    Pop

    To Down and Outlaws, it's obvious and unavoidable. But apparently an all-for-one philosophy of songwriting and identity is an anomaly in the modern era of music.

    Recorded in a marathon one-week session at Studio 606, "Above Snakes" finds San Francisco's Down and Outlaws fine-tuning their place musically and striving to channel the restless, pissed off spirits of rock and roll history.

    As Above Snakes -- an old west term meaning "still alive" -- suggests, the band believes in music that's fresh, yet pleasantly unpolished; brash, but wary; accessible, but never cheap.

    In "I Don't Care," Peter Danzig proclaims: "I'm a sickness/ I'm a cheat/ I don't care if I feel a thing." And the whole band joins in to scream the title line with an urgency that proves just the opposite.

    With appearances at Outsidelands, SXSW, Noise Pop, and Echo Park Rising under their belt, the band's show is the source and primary outlet of that urgency. A friend recently commented, "I've been trying to record your set for months, but you're too fuckin' loud!" This music is based on freedom and escape from everything else that drags you down, if only for 40 minutes.

    "Raw energy, blistering guitar leads and dirty vocals over thick bass lines and driving drums. Though their aesthetic is dark and brooding, they write songs that are smartly accessible." — San Franpsycho (Bands You Need to Know)

    “Opening for Reignwolf were San Francisco’s Down and Outlaws and they made every moment of their blistering opening set count. These guys are rock and roll, playing gritty, driving songs that hit the marks for this photographer.” —Vortex Magazine

    "Down and Outlaws sets the tone for refined songwriting and tight technique in a genre often plagued by showy, loose compositions.” — East Bay Express

    “Since banding together in 2012, the four guys of Down and Outlaws have been crafting a dirty blues rock sound that does not mess around — unadulterated rock and roll made with absolutely no traces of “indie” or lo-fi. They leave the fluff and filler at home in favor of gritty, grimy, whiskey-soaked tunes, bridging western blues vibes with classic rock and sounding exactly how an outfit called Down and Outlaws should sound. — The Bay Bridged

    Smokin' Ziggurats

    Rock

    Rippin' rock and roll band from San Francisco. Debut album out in October via Two Tree Records. 

  • The Atom Age

    The Atom Age

    Garage Punk

    THE ATOM AGE FIND THEIR INSPIRATION FROM THE DUST COVERED COLLECTIONS OF UNHINGED 60’S PUNK AND R&B, WHOSE CRAZED ENERGY WAS ONCE MISCONCEIVED AS A BETTER FIT FOR YOUR TRASHCAN THAN FOR YOUR TURNTABLE. WHILE TAKING MANY OF THEIR CUES FROM THESE PRIMITIVE PILGRIMS OF PUNK, THE ATOM AGE STILL STRIVE TO LAY DOWN THEIR OWN MODERNIZED SOUND.

    COMING TOGETHER IN 2009 IN OAKLAND, CA THE ATOM AGE IMMEDIATELY HIT THE ROAD. TOURING HEAVILY ENABLED THE BAND TO DEVELOP THEIR POWERFUL LIVE SHOW AND UNIQUE STYLE. AFTER MAKING SOME NOISE IN THE BAY AREA’S SCENE ASIAN MAN RECORDS OFFERED TO RELEASE THE BAND'S SECOND FULL LENGTH IN 2012. DURING A BREAK FROM TOURING EARLY IN 2014, THE MEMBERS FELT IT WAS TIME TO RADICALLY REFINE AND HONE THEIR SOUND IN PREPARATION FOR THEIR THIRD FULL LENGTH. A YEAR OF WRITING AND RECORDING COMMENCED WITH THE INCLUSION OF A SIXTH MEMBER ON 60’S COMBO ORGAN.

    THE NEW FULL LENGTH “HOT SHAME” BLENDS THE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL SWAGGER OF LINK WRAY WITH THE ANGULAR PUNK OF FUGAZI AND HOT SNAKES. A HAUNTING TENOR SAXOPHONE AND TRANSISTOR ORGAN COMBO PROVIDE AN ADDED LAYER OF TONE RANGING FROM THE STOOGES' FUNHOUSE AT THEIR DARKEST, TO THE FAMOUS FLAMES AT THEIR MOST ENERGETIC. CO PRODUCER BLAG DAHLIA FROM LEGENDARY GARAGE PUNKERS THE DWARVES LENT HIS GREASY EARS AND FORMIDABLE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL KNOWLEDGE TO THE BAND WHILE THEY TRACKED THE RECORD THEMSELVES AT THEIR STUDIO; DISTRICT RECORDING.

  • Dirty Denim

    Dirty Denim

    Rock & Roll

    Combining obscure sixties garage with 50’s/60’s girl rock and garage punk, all girl trio Dirty Denim bring a refreshing bit of fan fetishism to the impetus of sleazy rock ‘n roll. After guitarist and lead singer Katie Rose (BOMP! Records baby of les Hell on Heels) migrated down to San Francisco from Portland, Oregon with bassist Laura Svec, they eventually joined with drummer Raquel Reyes (The Peppermints) to form Dirty Denim. They swiftly made their mark in the North Bay area gigging with local and touring bands at S.F. venues such as; Great American Music Hall, Rickshaw Stop and Bottom of the Hill. 
    This year (2016) they added a fourth badass, Niki Kangas, who juggles keyboard, guitar and tambourine. Dirty Denim doubled down with explosive keys, catchy riffs and backup gang vocals that are impossible not to sing. 
    Watching them go from 3 shy girls nervously giggling into microphones... to an all out WILDFIRE on stage has captivated me. Always obsessed to see what they'll do next and literally twitching to hear their FIRST FULL LENGTH RECORD (set to release this year)... I wait impatiently. 

    Dirty Denim is now headlining local shows and supporting great bands like, The Coathangers, The Birth Defects, Shannon & the Clams and many others. These are four of the hardest working women in the industry, so catch these busy bees any time you can! They're impossible to tie down!!(well...figuratively)
