Moral Crux~~ http://www.reverbnation.com/moralcruxofficial
Moral Crux began in 1983 with James joining up with guitar player Jeff Jenkins to kick things off. James was in a cover band that played Clash, Sex Pistols and New York Dolls covers prior to Moral Crux, and there was a split in direction when James wanted to do more original material while some of the other members wanted to become more commercially acceptable.
James quit that band and then met Jeff who played guitar and was into a lot of the same music. They got together, wrote some songs and a revolution was soon born. Along the way they added drummer Jody Kimmell and renowned bass player Justin Warren.
Thriving in the west coast underground scene, and being featured regularly in countless magazines of the time including “Maximum Rock n’ Roll, Flipside, Music Connection and tons of other independent fanzines they soon became known as “pioneers” in their genre.
Moral Crux is often credited with bridging the gap between “anarcho-political punk” and “pop”. They put out releases on a number of different labels such as Coldfront, CM, and Velvetone among others, and enjoyed a decade of underground success, and a wide and very diverse acceptance throughout the scene and broke genre barriers along the way.
It wasn’t long before they caught the eye of former “Lookout Records” owner Larry Livermore, and frontman of “Screeching Weasel” Ben Weasel. Larry Livermore took a cue from Ben Weasel after hearing the “Side Effects of Thinking” album, when he said “Someone better sign these guys quick, before they are huge” They did and and started recording their first album for Lookout Records titled “Something More Dangerous” as well as re-issuing older material via the Lookout imprint “Panic Button”.

Jipsea Party~ http://www.reverbnation.com/jipseaparty
Formed in December 2011, in the garage studio of Snatchee Records Jipsea Party is one of the most distinct and eccentric bands born out of the Wenatchee Valley. The members bring together a slew of musical backgrounds and former experiences in punk rock, delta blues, reggae, metal, blue-grass,and the London Youth Symphony to create a sound that’s a cocktail of one part stomp, one part cabaret, another rock, polka, some sea swayin’ shanty and a whole lot of gypsy.
After Jipsea Party played their first show opening for Larry And His Flask in January 2012, they’ve trampled all over Washington State taking the party from places such as Wally's house of Booze in Wenatchee, the Morgue in Georgetown (RIP), El Corazon in Seattle, O'Malleys in Tacoma,The Wild Buffalo in Bellingham, to Jones Radiator in Spokane, they’ve seduced show goers all over the state at places like Conscious Culture Festival, the Desert Sage Festival, at the Town Toyota Center for the Derby Girls, The Pastime in Roslyn, and many other locations all screaming for more!
They arrive, unknown, a caravan of seemingly undesirable immigrants, setting up camp and parading the streets in a flurry of scarves, glitter and random percussion. Once the troop takes the stage, bemused watchers start grooving and clapping without knowing what they’re doing - they’ll have your children and your grandparents dancing- along with everyone else in attendance.
Party! Party! Party!!
