Get an Immediate Shot of Adrenaline w/Cheerbleeders at Bourbon & Branch July 12

Sweet snarling vocals with a instrumental aggression that won’t ease up or back down, Cheerbleeders bring an immediate shot of adrenaline to Bourbon & Branch tonight. Unforgiving guitar shreds bulldoze the area ahead in attacking flashes, and the vocals explode in unfiltered expressions. Barriers stand little chance when the speed and force team up, rocking you into submission. Minnesota’s Jack and the Coax serve up a seductive concoction of bluesy Americana. The raunchy, retro rumble of The Up! Up! Ups! and the smooth-talking riff-fueled rock of Wild Joy wrap this billing. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 7pm, $7, 21+ - Michael Colavita

PLUSH to Perform as King Woman´s Special Guest at Starline Social Club - 6/19

The Oakland based band, King Woman will be finishing out their current tour with Wax Idols in their home town at Starline Social Club on June 19th.

Miserable songwriter and all around underground goth goddess, Kristina Esfandiari has lead King Woman into an amazing career. With that said, the band has not left behind their local community behind as they invited special guest, the promising local underground independent band, PLUSH to perform for their upcoming show. It goes without saying this is going to be a local show that shouldn´t be missed. It´s cool to see King Woman supporting local bands!
