Ride The Blinds 
Chris Guthridge, Billy Cramer, and Nick Cramer.
-From San Francisco, California.
-San Francisco-based blues-rock outfit Ride the Blinds have released two albums on the Klepto label. Both 2004's eponymous debut and 2006's Start Running have earned the group critical acclaim, as well as favorable comparisons to legendary acts like the Faces, the Rolling Stones, and Led Zeppelin, as well as contemporary classic rock bands like the Black Crowes.

The Richmond Sluts
Shea Roberts, Chris B, Justin Lynn, Jesse Nichols, and John Tyree.
0From San Francisco, California.
-The Richmond Sluts may hail from SF, but their hearts are far off in New York City, and their heards are stuck in other decades entirely. It would be easy to laud the quartet as the best glam trash band since the New York Dolls, but that's merely a convenient launch pad from which The Richmond SLuts set off into their eponymous debut album. Since categorization is a necessity in this age of overspecification, punk rock will do nicely, but doesn't begin to encompass jus thow cleverly the group churns other genres through its blender. The SLuts connect the dots between '60s garage punk and old school '70s style, then toss just a dash of new school into the mix. Variations on this recipe reverberate across the album, and answer a slew of nagging questions along the way.  

Hot Lunch
Eric Shea, Aaron Nudelman, Rob Alper, and Charlie Karr.
-From San Francisco, California.
-Hot Lunch is a punk 'n' roll band from the SF/Oakland Bay Area that specializes in getting loud, getting weird, and getting rad. The quartet's unique blend of brown-acid skate-rock and wah-fuzz proto-metal was born in the bowels of skatanic rituals, biker beer busts and wizard staff meetings. With a head-bludgeoning sound that refuses to take sides (and showers), Hot Lunch are on a hell-bent mission to create the best party soundtrack in the history of all music.
