Off With Their Heads - (Set time: 10:30 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.
Dead To Me - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
Dead To Me
Dead to Me is a punk rock band from San Francisco, founded by vocalist/guitarist Jack Dalrymple, drummer Brandon Pollack (both from the band One Man Army) and bassist/vocalist Chicken of Western Addiction. Early on, Pollack was replaced by Chicken's cousin Ian Anderson on drums and Nathan Grice joined as a second guitarist.

Shortly after the release of Little Brother, Dalrymple left the band to focus on raising his newborn child. Guitarist Nathan Grice took over Jack's vocal duties in his absence.

After touring and recording as a three-piece for about a year, guitarist Nathan Grice left the band. He was replaced by guitarist/vocalist Sam Johnson (of VRGNS, New Mexican Disaster Squad), and guitarist Ken Yamazaki, formerly of Enemy You and Western Addiction.
Riverboat Gamblers - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Riverboat Gamblers
The Riverboat Gamblers are a punk rock band originally from Denton, Texas but now residing in Austin, Texas. The band first received attention from major record labels after their energetic and rowdy showcase at the 2003 South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival in Austin, Texas, but the band ultimately signed with indie label Gearhead Records.
In 2005 they were signed to Volcom Entertainment and performed a stint on the 2005 Warped Tour, where the band was often noticed for its deranged live shows. The silliness of some of the earlier material has given way to a more complex breadth of material about America's maligned. They opened for Rancid and Rise Against in the summer of 2009. They have also appeared on the soundtracks to the videogames Tony Hawk's American Wasteland, Madden 07 and Skate 2. In 2010 they began to perform on the Vans Warped Tour in the United States.
The Underground Railroad to Candyland - (Set time: 8:15 PM)
The Underground Railroad to Candyland
Underground Railroad to Candyland spends much of their time slaying orcs and goblins in the LA basin and along the 110 and 5 Freeways. In battle, they are led by the ferocious and meticulous Mike Felix, supervised by Congo and text support is provided by the Jacks. Freedom is an interesting concept and, usually, they are fighting for it. However, these games are often played and not everyone is always sure of the outcomes. France also plays a big role when you can't sleep. Additionally, plans for a future out takes on emotions remain strangely up in the air. People keep talking about what is happening next but no one picks up the ball after it bounces out of the basket. The Lakers went down, embarassingly, in 6 games and Lamar lost his considerable mojo. Sometime in the middle of June he began to feel suffocated by paranoia and exhaustion due to the onslaught of insults back home. His drug and alcohol habit had already lead to a few short stints in rehab, but he finally hit rock bottom. He sadly left the city in mid 2008 and is now unemployed and living on the South side of Omaha where he plans on riding his bike around until the winter months make it impossible.
