GRASS CITY is a cathartic, foot-stompin' jug of musical moonshine -- soul-stirring Southern Doom Blues of the highest order. Their live show is a bruising, head-thrashing, tear-jerking experience that bulldozes the audience into heavenly oblivion with a thick Skynyrd-esque three-guitar assualt, scratched whiskey vocals and a Sabbathian worship of the Riff. It sounds like rock and roll savin' your soul, the sound of meat hittin' the grill. It sounds like goddamn GRASS CITY!

LIONS IN THE STREET create rock'n'roll that is fierce and genuine, invoking vintage Stones swagger and raunchy boogie rock 'n' roll with lean attack and ass-kicking rhythmic sense. Formerly known as The Years, the Lions have shared stages with the likes of Jet, Kings of Leon, Ambulance Ltd, The Dirtbombs and The Zutons and "explode with a Stones/Small Faces onslaught that drips with jubilant passion, as well as very loud guitars played with giddy abandon" (Guitar Player Magazine). Michael Corcoran of the Austin American-Statesman extols the Lions as being "the first great band I saw this year at SXSW!"

SMALL FAME - New prog-rock spectacle Small Fame features Mox from Bend Sinister on organ, Tom from Golden Phoenix, and other dudes of local fame. Balls-out party tunes will assault your ears with kick-ass beer-drinking RAWK that will have you banging your head!

The ANGER! The POWER! The FURY! AND The FILTH! - Everyone's getting sick of white belts, emo girl jeans, and crappy indie haircuts... too much shoegazing, not enough shit-kicking -- too much whining and not enough rocking! And thus was born The Anger! The Power! The Fury! The Filth! Four chords, eight balls, and an ongoing mission to spread the rock'n'roll word across the rock'n'roll world courtesy of East Van's most enjoyably explosive party-rock quartet. With a common love of stripped-down, punchy rock music designed to get the blood pumping and the sweat flying, no stubby beer bottle will be left undrained. What more could you need?
