Happy Fangs
Rebecca Gone Band & Mr. Cobra
-From San Francisco, California.
-The story of Happy Fangs starts in 2007 in the San Francisco neighborhood of the Tenderloin. RGB and Mr. Cobra shared a rehearsal space at Francisco Studios and got to know one another through their respective bands. Besides a shared drummer, the bands had little commonality musically; RGB's band My First Earthquake mined the indie pop scene while Mr. Cobra's King Loses Crown leaned towards the dark electro-rock side of the spectrum. In 2012, Mr. Cobra found out that RGB was parting ways with her band and would no longer be around the practice space. He reached out to her out of concern that she was abandoning making music altogether and upon learning that her artistic spirit was alive and well, the two sparked a creative partnership.

Alongside the juxtaposing music inherent in the band is a strong two-tone visual component. "Like the name Happy Fangs, we felt stark black and white imagery allowed us to visually play with that contrast," says RGB. At every show, Happy Fangs create and perform an original song with help from the audience, making every show unique- and giving the crowd a chance to see a song that will only exist in that space and time, never to be performed again. Their sound is "as if Bikini Kill and the Beach Boys were leveled to synth pop," as described by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Everyone Is Dirty
Sivan Gur-Arieh, Christopher Daddio, Tony Sales, and Tyler English.
-From Oakland, California.
-Oakland's grungy, violin-wielding Everyone Is Dirty has been favorited by Noise-Pop & KQED's top 10 bands of the Bay, and signed with Breakup Records at the beginning of 2014 to release a string of singles (most notably, their acclaimed hit, Mama No!!) followed by their debut full-length, out in March.

Rich Girls
Luisa Black, Andrew Burmester, August Churchill, and Chris Sipe.
-From San Francisco, California.
-Rich Girls is the solo project of Luisa Black. Sounds like: garage-y torch songs from the dark end of the street.
