WEED (from Vancouver, BC)
Coming from Vancouver, BC, Weed’s self-proclaimed sludge-pop is an apt description of their sound. They harness their advanced ear for fuzz to create dripping candy sweet melodies while injecting it with youthful energy and passion.
BABYSITTER (from Victoria, BC)
Weed’s tour partners, Babysitter, are from Victoria, BC. Branding their own messthetics, they are trashy, energetic, and raw. Somewhere between caveman and genius, they take frentic rhythms and neurotic vocals and apply them to garage-ish punk rock.
Crisis Arm are a three piece from Hemet, CA. They bring their own style of weirdo shoegaze (the best kind of shoegaze), extremely passionate, somewhat off kilter, and completely original and interesting. The vocals seem longing, the guitars trail somewhere between chaotic and enchanting and leave the audience floating, wanting more.
The Gravitys are a three piece from Temecula, CA. Channeling the caring indie punx/hardcore kids with heart of SST Records. Interesting guitar work, driving bass and drums, and passionate vocals and lyrics, leaving it hard to not get invested in them.
Rapid Youth are a four piece from Murrieta, CA. “Writing and playing relentlessly, Rapid Youth carved themselves a jagged niche in the Southern California DIY collective memory. Returning for the first time since separation, anticipate a sound that is noisy and youthful, yet refined far beyond most ‘punk’ bands these days.”
