RAPTORS, DEAD ON THE WIRE & NEWS FROM THE FRONT
DOORS: 9 PM / SHOW: 10 PM
RAPTORS: Formerly known as Death Punch, the band changed their name to Raptors in the past year. When playing under the name Death Punch the band accumulated a good deal of their fan base during a successful time playing Warped Tour 2009-2010. In an industry where the newest musical sensation seems to come and go in a moment’s time; for any band to change their name it is reasonable to call any name change a bold move on the bands part. When asked about the name change after his bands set, Ike (lead singer of Raptors) responded with “We changed our name for a number of reasons but the key reasons were that we had a few band member changes and we wanted to separate our band from all other bands that had similar names. Now that we are Raptors, and we have our iconic logo, we will be staying with the new name for the foreseeable future.”
DEAD ON THE WIRE: Mixing influences from 70's punk rock 'n' roll acts like the Ramones and Dead Boys with Chuck Berry inspired leads, this band churns out catchy songs with plenty of group choruses. Featuring former members of The Hillstreet Stranglers, Disabled Youth and Smash and Grab Job. Dead on the Wire has some experience under its belt considering they formed two years ago.
