Hot Snakes - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Hot Snakes
Hot Snakes formed in 2000, after the release of their first record, Automatic Midnight. They were John Reis, Jason Kourkounis, Rick Froberg, and Gar Wood. The band’s sound represented a return to the unrealized past of its members. This time their musics would be direct, undraped and rock ‘n’ roll while still maintaining the dense and turbulent character of the members’ previous work ("hard" labor). In April or May of that year, Hot Snakes found their live sound and established themselves as primo, down-stroke warlords.

Wikipedia says that in 2002 the band released their second album, Suicide Invoice. The album exhibited Hot Snakes slightly larger palate in mood and dissonance. People enjoyed the shows and listening to the recorded music. But, strain from controversy and fame would reveal cracks in the worn hides of these old road dawgs. Exit Jason Kourkounis to focus on other musics.

In 2004 Mario Rubalcaba joined the band and Hot Snakes released their third and last studio album, Audit in Progress. An increased attraction to dissonance surfaced as the band spiraled downward into a mid-life punk crisis. Yet, more shows were played and enjoyed and the band visited many cities all over the world. By 2005, the band had stopped performing.

2011 saw the return of Hot Snakes. The band appeared on the premier festival circuit. Both drummers performed with the band on the songs which they each recorded. The reformation proved the band to still be in the top 5. They discussed writing new material and building upon this revitalized momentum. After an additional 6 years of discussions, Hot Snakes returned to the studio in 2017 to commence recording. And, lucky for all of us, 2017 finds Hot Snakes charging back, renewed, playing shows and planning for the release of a new album in 2018 on Sub Pop Records
Mrs Magician - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Mrs Magician
These San Diegans have definitely cast a spell or three over us the last several weeks, and we're woozy with pleasure. There's maybe not enough of the aroma of petrol and old paint cans to call it "garage," so we're going with "garage apartment." Whatever, it's poppy and catchy and we love it (as previously suggested)
Spider Fever - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
Spider Fever
Spider Fever was founded in 2009 by singer/guitarist/drummer/DJ Mario Rubalcaba (Earthless). The group includes bassist Dean Reis and guitarist Billy Baggins (both of the Heartaches), along with drummer Cody Young (the Widows).
