DOORS: 8 PM / SHOW: 9 PM
the BLOOD (UK): They have a killer new line up with original singer, the Cardinal Jesus Hate, and will be playing the first 2 albums: "False Gestures For A Devious Public" (1983) and "Se Para Nex." Both albums will be repressed as a limited tour edition and all. The Blood returns with a powerful line up of members from classic bands such as UK Subs, Conflict and Last Resort to bring their legendary 80s punk epoch on a North America tour beginning in December 2012. Singer and original member The Cardinal Jesus Hate, along with Chema Zurita aka Sonic Offender, reformed the band in June 2012 to pay homage to original member JJ Bedsore (Rest in Peace JJ). The Blood’s mastery of pulsating punk chorus and harmonic noise still holds a cult following around the world and their first album False Gestures for a Devious Public hit the UK top 30 and was voted one of the year’s best releases by Sounds Magazine. It’s been 30 years since the release of their classic hits such as Such Fun and Stark Raving Normal, and now, The Blood will bring some of their best hits from their first Lp: False Gestures for a Devious Public (1983) and from Se Para Nex Lp to their fans.
EVACUATE: Formed out of the ashes of notorious hardcore punk bands The Virus, Cheap Sex and The Lab Rats, Southern California band Evacuate has caught the attention of fans worldwide since their formation in 2007. With a strong sense of urgency the band unleashed its blistering 12 track debut album. Propelled by social consciousness the band spews its vengeance on a number of issues that are rarely addressed in today's music. Powerful sing along songs are the vehicle the band uses to dispatch dire messages of a failed economy, global warming, war and much more while also offering a glimpse of hope to its listeners at a time when it is much needed. 2009 found the band back in the studio to record the critically acclaimed “Endless War” ep, followed by the band’s first tour of Europe in October, 2010. With a wide variety of influences such as Minor Threat, GBH, Slapshot, and the Sex Pistols Evacuate provides its own unique delivery providing the listener with the immediacy that the band is so determined to get across.
RAT CITY RIOT: Locals RAT CITY RIOT will be making their return to the Shakedown featuring their Hardcore meets Rock N Roll sound! A raging fire that Noah Bricker has never let go to embers with constant touring all over the globe and not looking back to see what people are saying. Never been anyone like them from San Diego and probably will never be. If you dig Slapshot mixed with Motorhead, Rose Tattoo & just no nonsense Rock N Roll then look no further. Image is nothing, live the life, not the lifestyle.
PSO: Locals P.S.O. are a young, promising band of Skate Punks. They also share the same lineup as Jakked Rabbits and some of the same songs.
