Strange Cities
-from San Francisco, CA
-Formed in San Francisco from the ashes of several bay area bands (In Letter Form, Murder of Lilies, I Am Animal), bringing you nostalgia, bittersweetness, melancholy, sparkle sighs, broken laughter, whiskey tears, and and angry nights.

The Trims  
-from San Jose, CA
-Tired of being an unsatisfied fan at shows, The Trims founder (Gabe Maciel) set out to start his own band, a band that would “trim” out all of the unnecessary music he was hearing in the scene and, instead, focus solely on writing good and catchy songs to perform. This philosophy of “trimming out the unnecessary music” rang so true with Maciel, that he decided to name his new project The Trims.

Hailing from San Jose, Ca, The Trims have a loyal fanbase and buzz that can easily carry them beyond their locality and into a national spotlight. With a strong sound reminiscent of early U2, The Strokes, The Cure, The Killers and the Brit-Pop of the 90’s, while also conjuring the swagger of artists like Joy Division and The Doors, The Trims maintain a pop friendly sound and delivery which invites music lovers of all genres into the fold. The traction The Trims have gained has not been accomplished solely through hard work, perseverance, and dedication, but also through creating their art with heart and total honesty.With songs of hope, love, and loss that bleed with music of romantic heartache and oversexed lyrics about all things scandalous, The Trims have never strayed from the initial reason for their inception. They write and perform their songs from the perspective of the unsatisfied person in the crowd, the person who is aching for something exciting and real. Once you blend all of these distinctly unique qualities  with the sights and sounds of catchy hooks and dynamic high energy live shows, you then have the identity that accurately defines The Trims.

Fake Your Own Death   
-from San Francisco, CA
-You don’t have to die to start over but you might have to pretend to. Fake Your Own Death have been compared to Echo and the Bunnymen and Sonic Youth in both local and national press. They've shared stages with The Warlocks, Blood Red Shoes, Film School, White Denim, Bob Mould, !!!, Gang of Four and others. FYOD is Terry Ashkinos, Scott Eberhardt, Jimmy Chen, Joey Federale.
