"Imagine an early 60's girl band singer defected and joined a garage band of the same era, with the sweet vocals complimented by Dave Clark Five style harmonies, jangly guitars that ain't afraid to scream, it's got backbeat you can't lose it, all with an edge fit for the late 70s post-punk scene." https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Moonspinners http://www.reverbnation.com/themoonspinners THE SUICIDE NOTES (PDX): Where Beaches meet Death, The Shangri La's do it with The Ramones and we end up in your vintage car... What started as a recording project by Tim Connolly (formerly of Epoxies) with vocalists Jessi Lixx, Josephine Jones and Double A, has turned into a mean rocking machine! Impressed by their choral prowess and clapping abilities, Tim decided to take the three young ladies under his wing and share his composing and producing powers with the world. Thus the Suicide Notes were born. http://www.reverbnation.com/thesuicidenotes THE TRIPWIRES (SEA) Seattle's The Tripwires are sitting on a goldmine- four time tested, plucky vets of the Seattle "Big Beat" situation. Way back in 2006; John Ramberg, voice and guitar for The Model Rockets and The Minus 5 managed to corral the incomparable Sangster brothers for a blistering new rock'n'roll combination. Jim Sangster holds down the thunderbroom (and How!) in the legendary Young Fresh Fellows, and also served mightily behind the regular guitar with The Picketts. Brother Johnny, ear popping lead guitarist, formerly with European fist pumpers The Sharing Patrol among many others, moved back stateside in the late nineties and began an illustrious career as a recordist. Friend and fellow groover Mark Pickerel, he of The Screaming Trees, came along on traps, much to their delight. Two fine albums followed, "Makes You Look Around" released in 2007 on the Paisley Pop label, and 2010's "House To House" on Spark and Shine. The band has graced many a beer soaked northwest stage, never failing to share their special brand of "get high" with the delighted throngs. 2012 brought a new wrinkle into the band's workshirts. After parting amicably with the impeccable Pickerel, the combo lucked into a new skinsman; none other than the great Dan Peters of Seattle fuzz royalty Mudhoney. Still having a blast and sounding ship shape as ever, The Tripwires are ready to roll you. https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Tripwires/97507791378 DJ TRICKBAG RECORD PARTY (SEA): Real cool music- spun with LOVE.

She also played in the No-Talents, Operation S, Cecilia & Ses Ennuis, Die Sauerkrauts, and now Sex Crime.

Please join us as we do what we can to help the Erwin family. Lund Bros play benefit for children of slain local teacher Brothers Chris and Sean Lund, along with bassist (and brother from another mother) Gwon Chang, have organized a benefit for the children of slain local elementary school teacher, Amy Erwin. Lund Bros will play the benefit show on Friday, June 17th at The New Frontier Lounge in Tacoma. Two other local bands, The Tripwires (Seattle) and The Hard Way (Olympia) have also agreed to perform and donate all their earnings. Amy’s son (11) and daughter (9) are going to face enormous emotional and financial strains. Sean Lund, a friend of Erwin’s, organized the fundraiser in hopes of doing something positive for Amy’s children. Lund states that the bands are “going to try to raise as much money as possible. It will only be a drop in the bucket in terms of what the kids are going to need, but anything will help.” Lund Bros is a trio from Tacoma that specializes in melodic hard rock a la Cheap Trick, The Posies, and Weezer. Brothers Chris (guitar) and Sean (drums) share lead vocal and songwriting duties while Gwon Chang sings backup and plays bass. The band is currently crafting the follow-up to their 2008 album, Songbook IV. The band has been together in its current incarnation since 2005 and has another album to its credit, Tangents. Both albums can be found on iTunes. Sean Lund emphasizes that the spirit of the benefit show will be like that of Amy Erwin herself; uplifting and positive. “This is a rock-and-roll show and we’re going to have some fun. Amy was a gifted singer who would often break into song for the sheer joy of it. She was known to her friends and family as someone who loved life and music and the benefit will reflect that. I’d like to think she would’ve enjoyed being there.” All money raised in association with the benefit will go to a memorial fund at the Washington State Employee’s Credit Union (WSECU) established for Amy’s children. At the request of the family and out of respect for the children’s privacy, their names will remain anonymous for the purposes of this benefit. http://www.lundbros.com Lund Bros on Facebook
