CLEPTO, TARTAR CONTROL & the SHAMES
DOORS: 9 PM / SHOW: 10 PM
CLEPTO: This band is straight from the dunes of the desert starting their punk rock adventures in Saudi Arabia back in 2000 and made their way half way across the world ending up in Canada. Rocking, obnoxious, worldly, and loud these 4 friends have made it their mission to entertain and not leave anyone behind and leave nothing unsaid. Leaving their homes and families behind, Clepto has been touring since June 2010 though-out Southern California where they settled down in their own studio in Los Angeles and recorded and released their latest b-sides album: Kebab, a compilation: Get Fucked Let's Rock Vol 1, and a new full length album: The Cold Unending March of Progress(to be released late 2012). In March of 2012, Clepto hit the road again touring through the U.S;/Canada and since June of 2012 have been in Europe for their next set of adventures! Let's hope you're lucky enough to be in their way.
TARTAR CONTROL: Robert, Sean, and Robot are three fun time buddies who looove music. They're on a mission to bring rockin' good times (via the bowels) into your heart. Robert and Sean started their epic journey in the suburbs of Salt Lake City, Utah where they performed in The Tabernacle Choir, gave hugs to sweetly handicapped cancer-children, and lip-synced to Huey Lewis and The News. With the invention of their drummer/bassist Robot, they hit the road with their sights set on Los Angeles. Inspired by such bands as The Vandals, Left Over Crack, and Lawrence Welk, Tartar Control brings to you a musical experience that can only be described as a "loud hug." Today Tartar Control gallivants all over the greater Los Angeles area giving sonic high-fives and handshakes to the masses.
the SHAMES play quick and dirty punk 'trash rock'. This three-piece formed in 2009 in Reno, Nevada. They have hard-hitting beats coupled with female-fronted vocals.
