Off With Their Heads - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Off With Their Heads
Rising punk rock band Off With Their Heads have announced plans to release Home, their sophomore Epitaph Records’ release on March 12th. The band has released the first song “Nightlife” today, which can be streamed via YouTube. Fans are invited to pre-order the album starting today by going to www.owthstore.com.

Produced by Bill Stevenson of Decendents fame at the Blasting Room in Fort Collins, CO, Home retains all the boisterous spirit of the band's earlier efforts while sonically taking a monumental step forward. The new album embraces authentic punk rock at its core and combines melodic fast paced aggression with mid-tempo pop, while singer Ryan Young’s rough and edgy vocals and genuine lyrics create a sincerity that can only come from a hard working band that lives and breathes it every day.

“Home is about the struggles of constantly being on the move, trying to maintain relationships while being away, and not feeling like there is really anywhere to go home to anymore,” says Young. It’s about the reasons why people leave their hometowns and never go back.”

From the first track, “Star Walking", an explosive opener about things getting worse while waiting for things to get better, to the album’s first single “Nightlife” about worry-filled, sleepless nights that keep you awake, Young describes the new album as “being about how hard it is to accept change for some of us.” This is evident in the sobering track “Stolen Away” that takes a hard look at fleeting relationships while “Seek Advice Elsewhere” touches upon the importance of reflection. Young continues to say, “It’s about getting older, and not being ok with it. It is about how religion can destroy a family. Finally, it is a dedication to anyone who can relate.”


Off With Their Heads have begun to carve out their own foundation in punk rock history with their very own take on rowdy, self-deprecating, beer-drinking, working class punk rock. When it comes to touring virtually year round, it isn’t a choice as much as it’s a lifestyle for Off With Their Heads. In March, the band will once again head out on another tour in anticipation of one of the year’s most engaging punk rock records.
FYP - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
FYP
A fun, humorous, and vital punk rock band from Torrance, CA (a suburb of L.A.), F.Y.P (aka Five Year Plan) was the brainchild of Todd Congelliere, who wrote most of the songs and was the only constant member throughout the band's constantly rotating cast. F.Y.P released a couple of classics in Dance My Dunce and Toilet Kids Bread, though all their records are worthwhile. As far as impassioned, dysfunctional, militantly geek punk rock, Congelliere struck a chord with punks in the know. His buddy Hal Badal and he were also able to eke out a living from their tiny but esteemed punk rock label Recess Records, which is responsible for releases from exceptional punk bands like the Dwarves, the Criminals, and the Crumbs, as well as all of F.Y.P's releases. A scraggly looking punker sporting Greyhound-bus-depot-style fashions, Congelliere has written his fair share of memorable, brilliant punk tunes. Before he was a punk, Congelliere was a pro skater and first got into punk rock via his skater pals. With a skating company endorsement, Congelliere made some dough and bought himself a four-track, a guitar, and Fisher Price drum machine from Toys R Us. Hence came F.Y.P's first primitive recordings in the early '90s, which are most notable for their silly titles, My Nieghbors Is Stoopid, Finish Your Popcorn, and Guido, Where Are You? Eventually, Congelliere scraped a band together and released F.Y.P's hallowed second album, Dance My Dunce, in 1994. (Their first was Incomplete Crap, a collection of their early 7"s.) Dance My Dunce includes classics like "Vacation Bible School" and their cover of the Toy Dolls' "My Girlfriend's Dad's a Vicar," as well as the feisty "It's Not My Fault You Like Air Supply," and "Kids That Play Dead," an ode to mean parents. Sean Cole joined the band as drummer in 1995 and stuck around on various instruments longer than any other F.Y.P member outside of Congelliere.

F.Y.P refined and perfected their rants into definitive songs on Toilet Kids Bread, produced by Blag Dahlia of the Dwarves, an album that does not lack for melodies or clever choruses. Between their last two releases, My Man Grumpy and Toys That Kill, F.Y.P bassist and crucial Recess Records family member Joe Ciauri committed suicide by jumping off a 150-foot cliff in San Pedro. Eventually, F.Y.P returned, but the suicide and other factors, such as their fans' requests to play the tunes off Dance My Dunce ad nauseam, led to serious burnout. So, Congelliere and core F.Y.P member Sean Cole decided to borrow the name from their last album (like their heroes the Descendents, who became All) and gave birth to Toys That Kill in 2000, a band that sounds, well, not so different from F.Y.P.

Roll The Tanks - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Roll The Tanks
Los Angeles residents Roll The Tanks came out swinging in 2008 with their critically acclaimed indie punk debut “Suffer City” winning fans over with its Pixies meets The Clash sound. Since the release of “Suffer City”, the band has earned the respect of many of its contemporaries opening for everyone from NOFX to Against Me!. Now in 2010, Roll The Tanks have found their sweet spot as a power-trio adding hard hitting Kid Joe Sirois on drums (The Mighty Mighty Bosstones/Frank Black) that have audiences crowning them as the next great LA punk band.

“Roll the Tanks' arena-ready punk rock, with its descending melodies, shout-along chorus and an up-all-night vocal scruff” LA TIMES
Bobby Joe Ebola - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Bobby Joe Ebola
Bobby Joe Ebola and The Children MacNuggits began in 1995, in a trash-strewn fast-food parking lot in Pinole, CA. Guitarist Dan Abbott and singer Corbett Redford rose from
humble circumstances as a satiric folk rock band that played for friends to their current majestic heights with hilarious and sometimes frightening acoustic performances. The MacNuggits have gathered loyal legions of fans with their infamous combination of searing social satire, soaring
harmonies, outlandish and shocking truths, and poop jokes. The songs draw upon a variety of pop culture, of global crises, of interpersonal labyrinths, of nightmares and daydreams, skewering them on a rusty spit for the world to see. With a nod to social satirists like Lenny Bruce and George Carlin, and musical influences ranging from Slick Rick to They Might Be Giants, Bobby Joe Ebola is the vaudeville routine for your personal apocalypse.


Bobby Joe Ebola began as a “living room band”, gaining underground notoriety as flagship band of S.P.A.M. Records, and co-founders of Geekfest, with longtime friend John Mink (better known as “John Geek”), who also provided occasional backup vocals. Lacking the blasting amplifiers of the punk and rock bands with whom they played, they found creative ways to react to the “novelty band” stigma, captivating audiences with unpredictable and high energy performances. Intensive touring schedules have taken them around the nation several times, and the Ebola boys have had the opportunity to play with a very diverse array of artists, both
underground and mainstream including Screaming Females, The Frustrators (featuring Mike Dirnt from Green Day), NoMeansNo, Emily’s Army, Bomb The Music
Industry, !!! (pronounced Chk Chk Chk), Night Birds, Kim Lenz & Her Jaguars, Classics of Love (featuring Jesse Michaels of Op Ivy), Tornado Rider, Kyle Gass
Band (featuring Kyle Gass of Tenacious D), Fleshies, Cracker, Camper Van Beethoven, Eddie Spaghetti of Supersuckers (solo), The Phenomenauts, Lemuria, Moon Zappa, Long Beach Dub All-Stars (ex-Sublime), Fishbone, Behead The
Prophet, Cadillac Tramps, Star Fucking Hipsters, Kepi Ghoulie Band, Greg Attonito of Bouncing Souls (solo), Kevin Seconds, The Angry Samoans, Against All
Authority, Your Mother, Hickey, Captured! By Robots and The
Evaporators at venues such as The Independent (San Francisco), Cafe Du Nord (San Francisco),
Rickshaw Stop (San Francisco), The Punchline (San Francisco), The New Parish (Oakland), Bottom of the Hill (S.F.), Slim’s (S.F.), Crest Theater (Sacramento), Phoenix Theater (Petaluma),924 Gilman Street (Berkeley), Spaceland (L.A.), The Uptown (Oakland) and ABCNORIO (New York).


Their first release, in 1996, was the “Two Cats” EP. It “sold” out very quickly (most were given away to local high schoolers) and was played frequently on Dr. Demento’s radio show as well as college radio up and down the West Coast. The band followed their EP with the 1997 full length At One With The Dumb, a split 7” with Pleasanton hardcore punk band, Your Mother, and appearances on several compilations. During this time Bobby Joe Ebola embarked
on the first of several regional and U.S. tours, partnering with bands like Harbinger (feat. members of Fleshies, Blatz, & Crimpshrine), and many others. The full-length masterpiece
Carmelita Sings!: Visions of a Rock Apocalypse was released in 2000, went to #1 on KALX (Berkeley) and the band broke up shortly after.

In 2009, the band reformed and immediately began writing and recording new material, and in
2010 released the “Freaky Baby” EP, and shortly after, the full length album “F”. Both releases were picked up by San Francisco-based label Silver Sprocket Bicycle Club. The EP’s
title track was made into the band’s first music video (directed by Emmy nominated film crew Bent Lens, and featuring acclaimed bicycle dance troupe The Bay Area Derailleurs), and has received nearly 30,000 online views.

Since the release of the critically-acclaimed F, which has found steady airplay on local college radio stations, the band has been hard at work filming music videos for each track on
the album, with a DVD companion album due out in early 2012.

The release of these albums saw the Ebola boys playing over 80 local and semi-local shows in 2010, including regional tours to the West Coast, Northeast and Southeast, and Midwest, with notable appearances at The Fest in Gainesville, FL, Art Outside in Austin, TX , Snob Theater at Noise Pop in San Francisco, CA and others. The MacNuggits also made a
guest appearance on comedian Alex Koll‘s “Wizard Hello” CD on the Rooftop Comedy label.

The band only got busier in 2011. In February 2011, Bobby Joe Ebola hit the road with The Frustrators (feat. Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt) for a West Coast tour. Once back home,
the MacNuggits spent the next three months on a breakneck schedule of playing local shows, and filming music videos with a smorgasbord of local directors. In late May, the band embarked on yet another self-booked 40-day U.S. tour, immediately following that up with more regional
mini-tours and radio appearances. In September, Bobby Joe Ebola joined forces with SSBC labelmates Tornado Rider on a 30-day U.S. tour, the band’s third national tour in two years.

2012 stands to be an even busier year for the band; A read-along story book/album, a record of cover songs, split 7” vinyl records with various peers of the band, and the DVD collection of music videos from “F” are all in production. Full-scale tours in the U.S. and Europe are also
currently in the planning stages.
