PopPunk RockyHorror GlitterPunk
-from Detroit, MI
-This is the real Detroit rock Ala The Stooges and MC-5 a resurgence of this Iconic three piece band.
THE DOGS helped ignite the pre punk scenes in Detroit, NYC and Hollywood with their underground cult classic songs "Slash Your Face + Fed UP" + "John Rock"
They forged their musical legacy in the grit of Detroit's Motor City, explored the avant-garde realms of the pre-punk New York underground, and soared amidst the glitz and decadence of Hollywood in the late 70's opening for The Ramones, Van Halen, AC/DC.
-from San Francisco, CA
-We're about playin' fast, loud, sexy, trashy down and dirty punk and roll!
We've had some kickass players in this band and the current lineup is no exception. We've all been around the block and back so this shit ain't about jumpin' on some trendy bandwagon. If you like it fierce and fearless, check it out...

The Hyperdrive Kittens
-from the Bay Area, CA
-This sassy, flashy one-of-a-kind Bay Area band brings good times! Catchy pop punk songs combined with a playful, high energy burlesque inspired rock and roll show bring fans to their feet. These Kittens are out for rock and roll salvation! ++This night only, madman Dave Dalton from Screaming Bloody Marys/The Unfortunate Bastard is Sittin with Kittens!!
The Hyperdrive Kittens are a gigging and recording original San Francisco Bay Area band with a sound combining classic styles of rock and punk with flavors of blues, doo-wop, garage, rocky horror and rockabilly. Their latest EP, The Meow Factor, released 2/10/23 is mastered by East Bay Ray/The Dead Kennedys. RagMag Zine (Feb 2023) describes the EP as having “more going on than most 10 track albums do and it's endlessly fun” -- Meee-ow!
"Rock that recalls both the Ramones and the Ronettes, and the lovely high harmonies - backed by grungy guitars and bitchin' 2 and 4 rim shots that would make even Phil Spector a little green with envy". -Billy Lavay, SF
"The Hyperdrive Kittens hits those classic punk and rock sweet spots that touch on a theatrical style and a ton of character which is what this band is really all about.” -Buzz Slayers Blog
With nine lives and over three decades of performing with a bevy of Kitten lineups, the bands core mission is, and has always been, the original songs of founder Lee Sanders (RIP). Today, co-founder Jenene Curtis -vox, Marta Bulaich – guitar/vox, Tommy (the Axeman) Lafferty or Melne (RokDove) – lead guitar, Rob Neidel -bass/vox and Tymber – drums/vox are The Hyperdrive Kittens.
