Les Grys-Grys
Les Grys-Grys
France's very own Les Grys-Grys have been nothing but a rock n' roll YouTube fantasy to us here in the States, with their amphetamine-fueled performances that conjure up the wild, rave-up rhythm n' blues and garage rock n' roll of '64-'65 suburban British teens (Downliners Sect, Pretty Things, to name a few...). They've been playing Europe's garage/psych/punk festival circuit for some time now, and we cannot wait to unleash them at Resident in Downtown L.A. for all of you to witness the chaos firsthand!
The Loons
The Loons
Based in San Diego, the Loons have been playing their smart, inventive brand of psychotic beat music for twenty years. Lead singer is Mike Stax, Anja Stax plays bass, Marc Schroeder and Chris Marsteller are the guitarists, and Mike Kamoo is their drummer and producer. The Loons’ fourth album, INSIDE OUT YOUR MIND, was be released by Bomp Records in 2015, and the London-based Dirty Water Records recently released a seven-inch single, “Miss Clara Regrets” b/w “Alexander.” Shindig Magazine described them as “a perfect pairing of Love-influenced garage-psych and British underground in the mould of the Pretty Things, played with preternatural style and ability.”
The Schizophonics
The Schizophonics
The Schizophonics are, in one word, EXPLOSIVE. Their frenzied live performances tap into the same unstoppable combination of rock ‘n’ roll energy and showmanship that fueled the MC5 in the heyday of the Grande Ballroom. When they hit the stage, they grab your attention and don’t let go. They’ve built up a formidable reputation in their home base of San Diego and a fervent following among locals. “One of my favorite live bands ever!” proclaims Tim Mays, who has run the Casbah for over 25 years and seen literally thousands of live bands come through his doors in that time. “The Schizophonics bring the goods every time they play,” he enthuses. “Pat Beers is like a cross between Jimi Hendrix and James Brown – yelping, wailing, shralping the guitar with his left hand while gyrating all over the place; Kyle joins in the mayhem on bass and Lety keeps it real behind the kit.”

But the Schizophonics are more than just an outstanding live act, they’re also committed to writing great, memorable songs, a skill singer/guitarist Pat Beers has continued to hone, channeling such influences as Jimi Hendrix Experience, the Sonics, the Stooges, the MC5, James Brown, and Little Richard.
