Dog Party
Dog Party
Dog Party is a California-based, rock'n'roll band, composed of sisters, Gwendolyn and Lucy Giles. Compared with bands like The Go-Go's, The Ramones, The White Stripes, and The Runaways, Dog Party establishes their own unique west coast sound with a dash of punk and a sprinkle of pop. With 5 records and extensive touring under their belts, Dog Party has been active since 2007. In fall of 2016, they were the Special Guests on Green Days Revolution Radio North American tour.

Dog Party! Catchy melodies, tight harmonies, fuzz pedals and big drums; what more could you possibly want in a rock and roll band? Formed in 2007 by sisters Gwennie and Lucy Giles, the duo draws influence from the classic sounds of the Ramones as well as contemporaries Ty Segall to synthesize their own unique style. Careful listeners will also notice a nod to bands like Cub and Tiger Trap, the former of Sacramento, CA lineage as well.

Following 2013’s breakthrough Lost Control album, the Giles sisters got the attention of Burger Records, who co-released the follow up album Vol. 4 with Asian Man Records. The duo celebrated its release by touring with Swimmers that summer, after extensive touring that had already taken them through Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, France, and multiple times across the Unites States.

The energy of their newest record, 'Til You're Mine, owes a debt of influence to the old Bikini Kill footage they both have absorbed, and also Sex Bob-omb — that’s right, the fictional band from the cult comic book series Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. They have an uncanny ability to incite nostalgic awe in older audience members, while fueling the fire of frenzied dancing in the younger ones.
Sneeze Attack
Sneeze Attack
Sneeze Attack is like candy for the ears—the kind of sweet stuff that goes down sugary but sticks to your teeth and probably keeps you amped for hours on end. Think Jesus and Mary Chain or Vivian Girls-styled reverb and fuzz layered with charmingly off-kilter melodies and vocals that ricochet from totally chill to totally angst-ridden.

Short, sharp, and glistening sweet, SNEEZE ATTACK's sugar infusion is the perfect soundtrack for Spring drifting into Summer, short sleeves and drinking beer with your beau on the front porch. A girl group vibe filtered through fuzz, Sneeze Attack's Maxwell LP recalls 90s South City singles, Sacramento's legendary Tiger Trap, and contemporary twee-rockers Bent Shapes. Sneeze Attack’s debut is twenty minutes of compact pop, including cover of songs by Head and Cub.

Sneeze Attack formed in 2012 when Dino met Hans. The two started writing songs and roped in their friend Patrick for some shows and a single, Aurora. After gigging around with Dino's pet bunny and other furry friends, they hit the studio with Chris Woodhouse behind the board, Christine Shelly on drums, and Charles Albright on lead guitar.
Dollar Signs
Dollar Signs
It’s an odd time to be alive, and no one is more uncomfortable than Dollar Signs, hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina. Dollar Signs was the project of Erik Button and Luke Gunn, a folk punk duo that sang anthems of awkwardness and discomfort as the 2000s closed out it’s first decade. Come 2012, the band had grown up and added two new members, Dylan Wachman, who screams and plays bass guitar, and Arion Chamberlain, their lovable drummer. A two-piece turned full-band provided Erik with a means in which to write more complex songs with big hooks and powerful choruses - anthems for the disenfranchised twenty-somethings and teens alike. There’s a fear to growing old in a world that doesn’t care about you, and Dollar Signs can relate; as a diverse group of friends who try to solve their problems in sweat-soaked rooms and dingy basements, singing and dancing away the fear. It’s group therapy for weekend warriors who have to work jobs that they hate. It’s a gala of cheap beer and sweaty hugs. Dollar Signs may as well be the band that played on the deck of the Titanic as it sank into the freezing ocean. We’re all in this together, and Dollar Signs knows that. After the release of their self-released full length album, Yikes, the band has been hitting the road and getting acquainted with the van - and now two tours, three blown tires, a branded hot sauce, and a family-size box of Tums later, they’re ready to do it again. This may not last forever, but for now, while there’s still a tinge of hopelessness in the air, Dollar Signs needs to party with you, because it’s the only way to survive the times.
