Guest DJ
Spider Heart is a four piece garage rock band hailing from Oakland, CA. With a sound and feel of a runaway freight train with squeaky brakes slamming head on into a glitter factory Spider Heart delivers its blues driven rock n roll through reverb soaked guitar riffs, pounding rhythm section and dark, devious lyrics wrapped up in sweet yet sinister melodies. The band has sourced The Stooges, The Kills, Nick Cave, The White Stripes, Patti Smith, The Cramps and Tom Waits as some of their major influences. Formed in late 2011 based on a mutual love of vintage sounds, dive bars, juke boxes and questionable evenings followed by puzzling mornings, Spider Heart has spent the last year honing in on their grinding sound and electrifying, smokey live shows. They released their DIY LP entitled Voodoo in October 2012 and are currently in the studio working on their first EP entitled Under the Gun due for release in January, 2013.

Owl Paws
Owl Paws is a San Francisco-based quartet furthering the folk, emo and progressive rock sensibilities of Fleet Foxes, American Football and Circa Survive. Utilizing the melodic elements of acoustic guitar, electric guitar, upright bass, drums and vocal harmonies, each member shapes the sound heard around the bay at venues from the Arlene Francis Theater in Santa Rosa to The Elbo Room and Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco. The band is releasing their sophomore effort, a 12″ LP titled “Carry On,” in the fall of 2012.”

Bonnie & the BANG BANG
Guest DJ
Bonnie & the BANG BANG is predicated on writing grooving, hypnotic rhythms highlighted by dark, cutting lyrics that entrance the listener in a dreary, dreamy narrative. Bonnie & the BANG BANG was founded by Patrick James Stiles (vocalist), Jake Dineen (multi-instrumentalist) and Joe Warren (guitarist) in the early Summer of 2011. They released their first EP “Ode To Darkness” on Valantine’s Day 2012. It was produced by the mercurial Sam Pura at his Panda Studios.
