The Mr. T Experience - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
The Mr. T Experience
The Mr T Experience (also known as MTX) is an American punk rock band formed in 1985 in Berkeley, California. They have released ten full-length albums along with numerous EPs and singles. The band is closely associated with the Berkeley and greater San Francisco Bay Area punk rock movement of the late 1980s and the 1990s, revolving around the 924 Gilman St venue and the Lookout Records label. Fast forward to 2015, MTX is back- only playing select gigs.
The Queers - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
The Queers
The Queers are a pop punk band from New Hampshire, formed in 1982. Singer/Guitarist/Songwriter Joe King has been the principal member of the group, with a vast number of musicians cycling in and out of the band over the years. Supposedly, the band name 'Queers' was used simply to poke fun at what he called the "Art Fag" community in NH. That same brand of humor and inanity has become a staple of The Queers music.  While some punk rock bands attempt to use their music to impart a social or political message, King has made it clear that The Queers exist simply to play punk rock for the fun of it. 

The Queers play a Ramones/The Beach Boys style of pop punk with songs about girls and beer. King has often collaborated with Ben Weasel, from Screeching Weasel. The band begun with a notoriety primarily in their own backyard, but with the release of Love Songs for the Retarded, recorded by legendary punk producer Mass Giorgini, their following grew to international proportions. They have collaborated with Mass Giorgini several times since. 

Their latest release was 2010's "Back to the Basement" on Asian Man Records.  After many lineup changes, with King being the only constant, the band has found a lineup that has been together for the last five years and have no signs of slowing down.  The Queers are:  Joe King (Queer): Vocals/Guitar, Dangerous Dave: Bass/Vocals, Lurch Nobody: Drums.
The Bombpops - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
The Bombpops
Bio

Formed in 2007, The Bombpops quickly became a mainstay of the storied San Diego punk scene, channeling youthful aggression through a healthy reverence for the genre’s progenitors and musical skill well beyond their years.

From salty dive bars to hallowed music halls, the band has toured the United States extensively – along the way forging new definitions of “acceptable personal hygiene”, pushing the limits of what might be considered a “bathroom” and cultivating a devout fan base that stretches from coast to coast.

Sharing stages with such revered acts as Bad Religion, NOFX, No Use For a Name, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Good Riddance, Pulley, GBH, TSOL, Teenage Bottlerocket, None More Black, The Frustrators, and Strung Out, the Bombpops have been privileged to play alongside many of the bands that inspired them.

Having released two EPs to date, joined the Red Scare Industries family in 2010 and relocated to Los Angeles, the Bombpops continue to provide Southern California with their own brand of blistering pop punk – serving up an energetic, acerbic musical attack that is equal parts sugar, spice and hydrofluoric acid.
The Piniellas - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
The Piniellas
The Piniellas started off in August 2011 with Scott, Rob and Leif. In July 2013 they recorded their Self Titled album in Atlanta with Joe Queer mixing behind the board. In August they did a brief tour with Dan Vapid & The Cheats and decided to go on a break/hiatus soon after.

Currently in the year 2014 the Piniellas are back to writing and practicing. In June, Miles joined as the new drummer, and Jeff came soon after to fill as 2nd guitar. Leif joined Loud Eyes as lead guitar during the band's off time. He's also planning to get his solo act, the Tronnies in the studio. Scott's obviously writing newer songs and getting the newer band prepared to play live again.

Expect their 12 song Self Titled record out sometime in the near future! Let it be known that Scott and Leif are the only two musicians that played on it. With guest vocals from Joe Queer and Johnny Sangster!
