John Travoltage
Richard Tubman, Alan Saura, Phil Boyer, Brady Quilici
-from San Francisco, CA

-John Travoltage is a four-piece pop punk band from San Francisco.
John Travoltage draw their influences from the likes of retro-rock acts like The Minutemen, Superchunk and Pavement, skate and surf punk bands like NOFX and Rancid, and contemporary neo-garage bands like Wavves and Japandroids. While the songs follow pop structure for the sake of palatability and dance-ability, John Travoltage seeks to subvert the inherent nature of pop aesthetics with bratty and iconoclastic lyrics that shove a decidedly adult middle finger at the notions of celebrated mediocrity, capitalist hierarchy, and Western exceptionalism that run rampant within the narrative of the modern American nouveau-urban denizen.

-from San Francisco, CA
