The Freak Accident is a Punk/Math/Garage/Pop/Surf/Rock collision led by Victims Family/Jello Biafra and the GSM guitarist-vocalist Ralph Spight. Their 3 LP’s and 2 EP’s are genre-hopping smart-ass punk and rock, equal parts comedy and tragedy. The new line-up of bassist Henry Austin Lannan and Stark Raving Brad on drums has begun work on a fourth LP tentatively entitled “Outer Space Is Boring and is booking shows all over the Western US now,
9p Soy City Stranglers (Decatur, Ill)
A sonic assault of beer-fueled leather clad intensity not seen since the Regan era, the raging dual guitars, tight bombastic rhythm section, and nihilistic spitted vocals of Billy Fury converge into tunes comparable to the finer works of The Dwarves, Poison Idea, and The New Bomb Turks. The boys will be touring across the country until the whiskey runs out. They recorded their self-titled debut with Matt Talbot (Hum, Centaur). They play fast. Enjoy!
8p Greg Hoy & The Boys (East Bay CA)
Plug-in-and-play rocker Greg Hoy is supporting his band's two 2022 albums 'Special Party' and 'Demons At Night'. The trio will also feature songs from 'Enjoy the View' recorded by Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies) and mixed by Sylvia Massy (Johnny Cash, Tom Petty). The pandemic video for 'Can You Take It?' with hip hop legend Ice-T was nominated for a California Video Award. 'Greg Hoy is at home with surprising listeners. Be grateful for it' says Melody Maker. Time Out NY says 'Hoy's clear-eyed rock is fueled by straight-up melodicism'. Jack Rabid of The Big Takeover says 'Stay for Hoy's trademark meaty, dirt-discharging guitars & swaggering Mick Jagger/David Johansen-like growls.'
