--Forming in 1998 in the town of Petaluma, CA., TSUNAMI BOMB was the brain child of Dominic Davi. Wanting to combine influences from the darker punk of the Northern California scene, with the classic sounds of Southern California hardcore, TSUNAMI BOMB set itself apart from its fellow bands early on with energetic and dynamic live shows, dual female vocals, and atmospheric synths that helped quickly build a fiercely loyal fan base and led them to be a headlining Warped Tour staple. This continued until after two full albums, many line-up changes, and many more miles traveled, North Bay’s TSUNAMI BOMB finally went on hiatus in 2005.
Fast forward to 2016, where due to fan demand Kung Fu Records has collected the early, now out-of-print and rare E.P.'s into a 14 track LP collection, "Trust No One". Not wanting the collection to just quietly appear on the shelves with no notice, the founding members Davi, Oobliette Sparks, and Gabe Lindeman were convinced to reform TSUNAMI BOMB with the help of vocalist Kate Jacobi in order to properly support the release.
After being joined officially by guitarist Andy Pohl (long time touring friend to the band), this now rejuvenated TSUNAMI BOMB has continued to sell out shows across the US and make major appearances from the Vans Warped Tour to the Texas Remember The Punks festival, and everything in between. Successfully earning its fan base back and rebuilding their loyal army the Tsunami Bomb Squad just like they did in the old days…one show at a time. The band is now moving forward and working on a brand-new record and has already been performing the first new songs written in a decade to much acclaim at their shows.
While working on this new record, TSUNAMI BOMB is finally returning to The Bottom of The Hill in San Francisco for the first time in over a decade to remind everyone why they call the Bay Area home. Due to an unexpected scheduling complication, Oobliette Sparks will not be performing on this date, so she is entrusting her duties to a special guest keyboardist, Heidi Bodeson-Flanagan of The Hot Toddies, the critically acclaimed bay area indie rock/surf pop band that came to prominence on Tricycle Records and Asian Man Records.

-The Atom Age find their inspiration from the dust covered collections of unhinged 60’s punk and R&B, whose crazed energy was once misconceived as a better fit for your trashcan than for your turntable. While taking many of their cues from these primitive pilgrims of punk, The Atom Age still strive to lay down their own modernized take on the sound. The band’s new record, Hot Shame, was co-produced by Blag Dahlia of the Dwarves, and channels a wide range of influences from bands like The Sonics, Link Wray and the Murder City Devils.

-Combining obscure sixties garage with 50’s/60’s girl rock and garage punk, all girl trio Dirty Denim bring a refreshing bit of fan fetishism to the impetus of sleazy rock ‘n roll. After guitarist and lead singer Katie Rose (BOMP! Records baby of les Hell on Heels) migrated down to San Francisco from Portland, Oregon with bassist Laura Svec, they eventually joined with drummer Raquel Reyes (The Peppermints) to form Dirty Denim. They swiftly made their mark in the North Bay area gigging with local and touring bands at S.F. venues such as; Great American Music Hall, Rickshaw Stop and Bottom of the Hill.
This year (2016) they added a fourth badass, Niki Kangas, who juggles keyboard, guitar and tambourine. Dirty Denim doubled down with explosive keys, catchy riffs and backup gang vocals that are impossible not to sing.
Watching them go from 3 shy girls nervously giggling into microphones... to an all out WILDFIRE on stage has captivated me. Always obsessed to see what they'll do next and literally twitching to hear their FIRST FULL LENGTH RECORD (set to release this year)... I wait impatiently.
Dirty Denim is now headlining local shows and supporting great bands like, The Coathangers, The Birth Defects, Shannon & the Clams and many others. These are four of the hardest working women in the industry, so catch these busy bees any time you can! They're impossible to tie down!!(well...figuratively)
