The Total Bettys Gear Up to Release New EP + Play Oakland Octopus Literary Salon- 7/24

We’ve got a fresh new band in town who has landed on our fare soil via Philidellphia! The Total Bettys are a super fun pop punk band who are gearing up to release a new EP entitled, Connect with the Couch which will be released on July 24th with a kickoff concert at the Oakland Octopus Literary Salon. They’ll be giving away a free zine at the event featuring original art and lyrics created by lead guitarist Bri Barrett.

The Total Bettys are a four piece pop-punk outfit based in San Francisco and the East Bay. Songwriter Maggie Grabmeier and guitarist Bri Barrett joined forces in March of 2015: they came for the face melting girl-power, and they stayed for the friendship. Recorded in Bri's apartment and mixed by Matt Regan of Hand and a Half Records, The Total Bettys' debut EP Connect with the Couch features fun, upbeat pop punk energy with witty, self-deprecating lyrics. The Total Bettys draw influence from bands like Bully, Chumped, and Best Coast.
