-From Deep Ellum, Texas.
-Giggle Party was formed in Dallas, Texas and after garnering a dedicated cult following for their raucous live performances and feel-good, borderline absurdist breed of pop-punk, they have relocated to San Francisco to share their musical celebration.
Giggle Party's recently-released debut LP Death and Other Unnatural Phenomena celebrates the absurdity of death and living each day like it's your last. The record features a more polished sound than the band's 2009 EP The Holes In Your Face Are Pleasing, but the frenetic urgency of their message remains clear: have fun. Live hard. Dance. Repeat.
Giggle Party think of themselves as a musical extension of a the Lowbrow and Pop Surrealist movements: believing that making music doesn't require you to be serious.
-Sweat Lodge reigns supreme as the king of pow-wow punk. Gritty and tuneful, raw but coherent, this corner of the skate punk world comes with its own unique soundscape. Vocally powerful and lyrically potent, Sweat Lodge embodies the restless, thoughtful side of SF punk.

-From San Francisco, California.
-Buzz and Jeanette started writing songs in the summer of 2011, Chris joined them and they became Nasty Christmas. Chris went missing so they got Ted to join.
