SWMRS, The Regrettes, Beach Goons
SWMRS: Oakland born band that have made a name for themselves by deconstructing the beloved rock genre. By combining modern electronics and the roots of rock in mind, they set out to reclaim the genre.
The Regrettes: Perfectly imperfect – that’s one way to describe LA based punk act, The Regrettes. Writing songs that proudly bear a brazen and unabashed attitude in the vein of acts Courtney Barnett or Karen O – with a pop aesthetic reminiscent of 50’s and 60’s acts a la the Temptations or Buddy Holly – the LA based four piece create infectious, punk driven tracks.
Beach Goons: Hailing from San Diego’s Logan Heights neighborhood, Beach Goons was the brainchild of Pablo Cervantez, the band’s vocalist, guitarist, and sole constant member. Beach Goons started innocently enough with Cervantez and a couple friends picking up instruments and playing out, hitting up any place that would have them, from their middle school to Logan Heights’ library. As the band grew, their sound evolved with them.
