    SHAKEDOWN GRAND REOPENING WITH: NIHILIST, DPI, the RED DEVIL SQUADRON & the GREAT ELECTRIC QUEST FREE SHOW! NOON TIL THE WHEELS FALL OFF! COME CELEBRATE THE GRAND REOPENING OF THE SHAKEDOWN WITH ALL THE KILLER B'S! BANDS, BOOZE, BIKES & BABES! NIHILIST: In the spring of 2003 Nihilist evolved into a metal trio forgetting everything and everyone left behind; to create a new aggressive sound of metal that you’ll hear today. “By the time finals had begun I was smiling because I had just been treated to a blistering taste of metal provided by north county San Diego’s very own Nihilist.”(automatic magazine). Mixing metal, thrash, and good old skool rock’n roll, this original blend of high energy music gets you out of your seat, banging your head and pumping your fist.“The three peice wins the why are you playing in this little bar when you should be playing with big metal acts award.” (Zakk Jones powerslave.com). All three members grew up in the same town, went to the same high school, and resided in the same nieghborhoods. It’s only fitting that they would come to gather to create a wirlwind of metal known as Nihilist. Nihilist is: Loren Tipton-Bass/Vocals,”What makes this band is Loren Tipton just wait till you hear him growl.” (Troy Johnson FoxRox). Joe Walker-Lead Guitar,”The leads are quick, captivating and filled a metal thirst” (Zakk Jones). Sean Elg-Drums,”Drummer Sean Elg must have sold his soul to satan to play like he does.” (Zakk Jones). Taking their home town by storm, it’s only a matter of time tilll they take yours. They pride themselves on their air tight performances and their skull crushing originals. “The musicianship is lock step assault.”(Troy Johnson). The band agrees that practice is not an option it’s an addiction, and metal isn’t a form of music it’s a religion. Next time you hear the fans screaming Nihilist, take cover. Cause when the bomb drops there will be nowhere to hide, and when the sound hits the crowd, the chaos ignites. DPI play a highly dynamic and aggressive style of punk rock. The aftermath of a typical DPI show is much like the remnants of a barroom brawl: Punks of all ages dripping of blood and sweat as they make their way through broken glass and beer-soaked floors. DPI has managed to revive a sound reminiscent of early-80's punk. Imagine the raw power of “early” Black Flag, Adolescents and RKL rising up to give today's generation a hard kick in the ass. No one is as true to form. This quintet's presence and songwriting talents remain unmatched by their contemporaries. Having survived the latest SXSW (South by Southwest) bash and the release of their 2013 LP Smashed, DPI is ready to pump out the soundtrack for the next party. the RED DEVIL SQUADRON are blasting a path across the music landscape of Southern California and beyond. Hailing from south Orange County, these gents wear their allegiance to the swashbuckling lifestyle on their sleeves and take no prisoners! With a sound best described as dirty blues based punk 'n' roll with a swagger straight from the high seas. the GREAT ELECTRIC QUEST have that 70's boogie Rock n Roll vibe cruisin' on in.
