Fairbanks is a breath of fresh air in the punk scene. The young band displays all the right elements of pop punk and executes them perfectly. This 3 piece plays fast and insanely catchy songs in the vein of early Lifetime and Green Day. Go to one of their shows...and you will dance, circle pit, and leave in a sweaty mess.
San Francisco's Owl Paws has been able to harness a sound unlike any other in their short time together. The group has indie rock influences ranging from Fleet Foxes to Anthony Green, and great harmonies by all band members. Owl Paws brings forth levels of musical exploration not even attempted by other bands of their age, and does it day in and day out.
Posole offers latin rhythm's effortlessly blended with dreamy guitars reminiscent of 1960's San Francisco hippie bands.

Their new EP, No Justice will be released March 7th, 2013 and will be directly followed by a 2 week west coast tour to and from SXSW.
