The Knitts
The Knitts
Five members... Five gut punches, five empty whiskey bottles.

The Knitts. Frantic creative energy, marked by a coming out soiree, a dirty debutante ball, a not so sweet 16 party... a band of petulant, whip smart yet delinquint, melancholy yet jolly, obscenity laced sweet and tender hooligans whose brand of anti-emo garage post punk anglo pop defies lazy comparison.

Drawing from a vast range of influences that belie their tender ages, The Knitts are a calling card for what is to come.

The Knitts, they’re not on the grid, don’t play to click tracks, don’t know how to work a sampler or program a drum machine. They don’t growl or scream, they sing. They’re not choreographed, they move. They don’t pose, they just smile and laugh.

Now, the fully-formed Knitts are leaving the safety of the practice room and building a following around Los Angeles and beyond.
Yacht Punk
Yacht Punk
Yacht Punk sounds like Stephen King’s movie Maximum Overdrive took a handful of downers. It has something to do with free-basing weed wax off nice silverware you heated up on an electric stove. It’s drinking daiquiris out of a hollowed-out pineapple at a vampire bar, flying on acid. It’s doing hippie-flips in the desert while eating steak dinner with a roommates’ retired relatives, having a black dumpster cat named Mazzy Star, and destroying another pair of white Converse. No, they don't ride on yachts and they don't play punk.
Flames of Durga
Flames of Durga
Flames Of Durga is an LA based power trio full of raw passion. The brainchild of identical sisters Cecilia and Beah Romero along with drummer Nate Million. ~ Instagram: @flamesofdurga

"Like two maenads taking part in a rite of delirium, twin sisters Beah and Cecilia Romero of the new East Los Angeles band, Flames Of Durga sure know how to put on an impressive rock show. Not only do these fierce brunettes deliver those early female punk vibes (think Babes In Toyland and Bikini Kill), but they're quite easy on the eyes. Without a care of their sweaty bodies and matted hair, the ladies of Flamed Of Durga will get on the floor in the style of early Iggy Pop, letting out gut-wrenching howls as they immerse themselves into their punk madness. Oh, and did we mention they have a very kick-ass male drummer?" - Grimy Goods
