-The Tijuana Panthers are from Long Beach, a great band, staring at the sea, staring at the sand…Dishing out a witty, lo-fi fusion of surf, garage rock, and punk, Tijuana Panthers are a trio from Long Beach, California featuring Chad Wachtel on guitar, Daniel Michicoff on bass, and Phil Shaheen on drums. The members of Tijuana Panthers first met when they attended the same church camp during their days in junior high; they shared an interest in surfing and skateboarding, and grew to be close friends. Sharing a passion for rock & roll, Wachtel and Shaheen played in a two-man band called the Pencils for a while, and Shaheen and Michicoff were bandmates in a group called the Fancy Lads before the three teamed up for Tijuana Panthers. The band made its recorded debut in 2009 with a 7" single, "Girls Gone Wild" b/w "Creature," and both songs would later appear on the band's debut album, 2010's Max Baker (named for one of Shaheen's neighbors, whose exploits in Mexico also inspired the band's moniker). In the fall of 2012, Innovative Leisure Records released another Tijuana Panthers 7", "Tony's Song" b/w "One Way Ticket" (the latter a cover of a track by power pop icons the Nerves), which was a preview of the band's second album, Semi-Sweet, which arrived in stores in November 2012. The band toured extensively in support of Semi-Sweet, sharing stages with Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segal, the Reverend Horton Heat, and Jello Biafra, while also appearing at the annual Coachella Festival. In June 2014, Tijuana Panthers dropped album number three, Wayne Interest, via Innovative Leisure, and a little over a year later, the band was back with its fourth full-length, Poster. That was followed by the EP "Ghost Food" in 2016.

-from San Francisco, CA
-San Francisco's favorite all female garage rippers. Mixing reverb-drenched jangly guitars with sun-soaked harmonies reminiscent of 60’s pop and surf bands, along with a plethora of influences from more fuzzed-out contemporary artists, The She’s have crafted a sound replete with emotion and sound: sometimes happy-go-lucky, sometimes gloomy/melancholy, all around brilliant; a testament to the city they were born and raised in. The She's have been playing together since elementary school. Their early music is a reflection of their social and musical lives colliding- coming out of a unique perspective for high school students having been tossed into the music industry at such a young age. Today, their songs develop into themes of nostalgia, the exploration of solitude, love, and heartache.
Isaac Rother & The Phantoms
-from Los Angeles, CA
-Isaac Rother is an imposing figure. On stage, he commands a unique and mystifying attention from the audience as the Phantom and his band revive the sounds of rock n roll’s nativity in a majestic and awe-inspiring sonic assault. With all the intensity of punk rock and the heart and soul of what first made rock n roll such an exciting movement, Issac Rother & The Phantoms are here to frighten mere mortals with a formidable groove and terrifying ferocity, reminding us all that rock will never die – like the host of the undead, The Phantoms won’t stop until they’ve conquered the world.
