    SMOGTOWN SHAKE BEFORE US CAT PARTY $5 DOORS: 9 PM / SHOW: 10 PM The Beach City Butchers are back! SMOGTOWN break the silence! Premium Switchblade New Wave: cynical tales of twisted suburban like barked over harsh rhythms and vicious riffs. If you're not familiar with Smogtown , you are missing out on some of the best, authentic SoCal Beach Punk since the early 80s. San Diego California, June 19th 2010. The day the earth shook still...The day 4 friends, Will, Cuz, Jesse and Fonda found they shared a common love for vintage organs, hollow body guitars, Theremins, cool ties and a red sparkle drum kit. Over a couple of drinks, a pack of smokes and a few hand shakes …SHAKE BEFORE US is formed. Their “Get buzzed and turn up the fuzz” attitude has yielded true tales of lost faith, booze, drugs, sin and self doubt. A maniacal mix of organ, guitar, dual howling vocals, deep drums and even deeper bass. They pair the past with the future for a unique sound that is vintage yet modern at the same time. Shake Before Us recently completed their debut record with John “Swami” Reis producing and local engineering master Ben Moore on the controls. Recorded live directly to a vintage 8-track reel-to-reel, the album is a perfect snap shot of the band at their best…LIVE. With all 4 members contributing to the songwriting process, they have crafted their unique style of '60s Sci-Fi Garage Rock that pulls elements from The Animals, The Strokes, The Raconteurs and The Doors. Shake Before Us is a rock and roll band in its purist most primitive form with the devil breathing down their necks… and they wouldn't have it any other way. CAT PARTY is a post-punk band from Orange County, California. The band consists of Ryan Nichols(guitar/vocals), Roger Fowler(drums), and Shane Cox(bass). Cat Party started in 2007 when Roger and Ryan met at the skatepark. Since then they have released a handful of records and have been playing shows non-stop. Recently, they released their second full-length, entitled Rhapsody In Black. Cat Party have created a sound that is all their own; one that is decidedly dark and icy for a group of boys from the sunny beaches of southern California. Cat Party is a true band. Born of a shared passion for music, they are authentic, and in it for the love.
