Girls With Guns
La-ni Lithman~ Vocals
Christy Nishiyama~ Bass
Sophie Vogel~ Guitar
Trey Cobb~ Drums
-from San Francisco, CA

-La-ni Lithman is one of the bay areas truly fascinating underground figures.  The daughter of Philip Lithman-better known as Snakefinger, and known for his long time collaboration with the mysterious Residents-it took the former actress quite some time to quit worrying about her fathers shadow and come into her own musically.  But when she did, holy shit.  For the last seventeen years, Lithman's been fronting the punk outfit Girls with Guns, who sing, by her own admission, mostly about "cocks and sex and drugs." "I really wanted to go out there and rock as hard as the boys," she told me, "and look really cute doing it in a Betsey Johnson dress."  Mission accomplished! The girls (there is actually one guy) play a mixture of Lithmans originals and covers of songs by the Ramones, Bikini Kill, and ...Connie Francis?  Yep.  Lithmans musical mantra..."keep it simple and stupid".

We get to do what we want. We do it with a lust for life.

The Temple Beautiful Band
Andy Henning
Kevin Moore
Michael Peppe
Geoffrey Pond
Mike McKevitt
-from San Francisco, CA

-The band was originally formed in 2019 to perform only at the 40th anniversary of The Temple Beautiful show at BOTH. We got such a great reaction at the show and two earlier warm up shows that we decided to continue and have played many more times since then. The band is made up of veteran Bay Area musicians ranging from original drummer Greg Langston who actually played at The Temple Beautiful with No Alternative to musicians who have played or are playing in various bands currently.

Dizzy Twin
-from San Francisco, CA
-Dizzy Twin explores a netherworld of weird, witchy vibes. To date, they’ve put out two albums: Kaleidoscope (2016) and Empire (2018), the latter of which was mastered at Abbey Road Studios. Musically beautiful and lyrically powerful, Dizzy Twin is in a genre all it’s own- an adventurous and dynamic feminist statement reaching into both the future and the past.

Dizzy Twin began in SF as a super-secret studio project created by UK transplant Paul Simmans and co-founder of San Francisco’s feminist punk icons Frightwig, Mia d’Bruzzi. It is now a full-blown live act featuring Roger Rocha (4 Non Blondes, The Goldenhearts) on guitar, Tim Perdue (Velvetta, Enrique) on bass, and Michael Tornatore on drums, along with Paul on piano and guitar and Mia on vocals.

“Gorgeous tracks!”- Unwoman (Erica Mulkey)
