RAT CITY RIOT, SLICK 46 & RUST!
DOORS: 8 PM / SHOW: 9 PM
RAT CITY RIOT: These Street-Rock gladiators are battle tested and have the miles (or Kilometers) behind them to lay a proper foundation for an assault on the very core of what you know about this band, and what you've been told that Rock and Roll should be. Blasting out of the gate with songs like 'Save Your Soul' and 'Long Run', RAT CITY RIOT let everyone know exactly where they stand as a hard-working, touring machine that pulls no punches and has no qualms about telling it like it is. Featuring a Discography on such labels as Taang! Records, Street Anthem, and People Like You Records; RAT CITY RIOT find their new home now on IHP RECORDS and get back to basics, and back on the road ready for anything. New additions to the band include Kevin Grossman (ex Bonecrusher and Straight Faced) on lead guitar, and Kevin Abrams on bass guitar. Back for more, are seasoned touring veterans, Noah Bricker on vocals, Andy Mensing on guitar, and Gavin Glenn on drums. RAT CITY RIOT is back, stronger than ever, and will be tearing across the terrain, onto a stage near you with a vengeance. “Image is nothing. Live the life, not the lifestyle…”
SLICK 46 are a working class, street punk band based in Melbourne, Australia. After forming in late 1998, Slick46 have established themselves as one of Australia’s hardest working & now longest running, street punk bands. During this time the band has always been busy, writing, recording, playing countless shows in Melbourne, as well as repeatedly touring to major cities all over Australia. Also In recent years the Band has toured the west coast & south western states of the U.S.A four times. Tim (Guitar) Owen (Bass) & Paul (Drums) have produced a number of releases including the ‘Kicked Out Of Everywhere’ E.P.1999 (out of print) “Stand In Line’ E.P. 2001 & the ‘Move Aside’ E.P. 2006. As a result of Slick46’s 2007 U.S tour, the band established a working relationship with U.S street punk label Longshot Music. Longshot went on to release Slick46’s ‘I Don’t Wanna’ album & a split 7’’ vinyl with U.S band the Harrington Saints in 2008. That year Slick46 teamed up with the Harrington Saints for a west coast U.S.A tour. After more than ten years with the band, Owen decided to pursue other interests in early 2009. Flea now joined on bass & the band went on to record the ‘Young Love’ E.P released on Longshot Music & also Contra Records in Germany. Slick46 toured the U.S to promote their new record in late 2009. 2010 saw Slick46 touring & recording, releasing the "Hurry Up'' album in early 2011, once again on Longshot & Contra, followed by shows all around Australia to promote the album & a U.S tour in December of that year. 2012 see’s Slick46 become a four piece, Owen rejoined the band, now playing 2nd guitar. Slick46 went on to release a retrospective compilation C.D "One Thing Led To Another" on Rebellion Records. It featured both new songs & old songs that had been re-recorded for this release. Now in early 2013, the band are preparing to record a new 7'' which will be released mid year before the bands U.S tour in July. More details soon...
