THE FRIGHTS
THE FRIGHTS
A couple of months after graduating from high school, Mikey Carnevale (vocals/guitar) and Richard Dotson (bass) got together as The Frights to play a one off 30 minute set as sort of a joke. The feeling they got from the crowd in their hometown of San Diego inspired them to become a "real" band almost in spite of themselves. Along the way, they recruited Marc Finn (drums) and released You Are Going To Hate This (produced by Zac Carper of FIDLAR) in February 2016. Jordan Clark (guitar) added to the band's musical prowess in the ensuing year of touring around North America. The fearsome foursome has now teamed up with Epitaph Records for the August 24th release of their new album, Hypochondriac (with Zac Carper again at the helm). 2018 looks to be a year filled with drinks, laughs, tears, miles in the van and on a plane and plenty of hours on the stage for The Frights.
HUNNY
HUNNY
The Southern California six-piece was formed in early 2014 by a group of long time friends and musicians. Hunny's charismatic sound draws from a blend of 1980's post-punk and their undying love for Prince.

HUNNY worked with producer/engineer Doug Boehm (Girls, Tokyo Police Club, Christopher Owens) on the new single "Cry for Me" which garnered more than 200,000 plays in it's first 2 months on Soundcloud, charting on the Top "Most Popular Tracks" on Hype Machine. The band also gained local support from KROQ where the single hit #1 on KROQ's Locals Only Show. Hunny has played sold out shows across the US including hometown dates at The Satellite and The Troubadour.

HUNNY is Jason Yarger, Jake Goldstein, Jacob Munk, Gregory Horne, Kevin Grimmett, and Joey Anderson.
HOT FLASH HEAT WAVE
HOT FLASH HEAT WAVE
San Francisco indie-rock quartet Hot Flash Heat Wave rose to prominence in the Bay Area music scene in 2015 with the release of their 'Gutter Girl' music video, from their debut album Neapolitan, which was uploaded to YouTube and eventually made its way to the front page of reddit. Their versatile sound, at times reminiscent of golden 60s, power pop, dream pop, post-punk and indie rock, demonstrates a dynamic range of songwriting prowess centered around consistently infectious, sun-soaked melodies and guitar hooks. HFHW formed in Davis, California as a noise collaboration between Adam Abildgaard and Nick Duffy in 2010, expanding to a full band when bassist Ted Davis and guitarist Nathaniel Blum joined the group in the following years. Renouncing the traditional front-manned format of most contemporary bands, the four instead each contribute songs and share the lead. With the release of their sophomore album, Soaked, accompanied by a string of creative self-produced music videos in 2017, the group embarked on its first nationwide tour. Their first single, 'Bye Bye Baby', appeared on Canada's Viral 50 Spotify playlist. In 2017, HFHW released their sophomore album Soaked with OIM Records, which charted on college radio in the U.S. The band just finished up a national tour and SXSW visit with No Vacation to promote their new single 'Glo Ride' - a song released in collaboration with Broken Ent. Hot Flash Heat Wave will continue to release music and new videos throughout 2018.
