Team Dresch
Team Dresch
TEAM DRESCH erupted out of the early 90's Pacific Northwest activist-punk-radical-grunge-queercore-&-riot-grrrl-fever-pitch-lesbionic-action that would forever change the landscape of music and politics. Team Dresch plays gnarly beautiful and raw punk music with a message of loving your freaky queer self. The band received much critical acclaim, toured the US and Europe extensively, and released two albums, Personal Best and Captain My Captain.

Donna, Jody, and Kaia each ran record labels (Chainsaw, Candy-Ass, and Mr. Lady) that powered much of the queer and feminist music of the time. The Need, Free to Fight Self-Defense Project, Sleater-Kinney, The Butchies, Le Tigre, The Vegas Beat, Lovebutt, and lots more.

Team Dresch split in the later 90's but have subsequently reunited for various tours and shows. Their live shows never disappoint and are an energy storm of hair and thrashing guitars—PUNK EMO GRUNGECORE. Plus Marcéo and Donna will say funny things, Jody will cry, and Kaia will talk about dog sports. Come to the show, sing along, Freewheel, and Remember Who You Are. If you think you belong, you do! xoxox Stay free!

Sex Stains
Sex Stains, formed in early 2014, is a Los Angeles quintet comprised of stalwart members of the punk and indie underground. Lead vocalist Allison Wolfe was part of first generation riot grrrl bands Bratmobile and Cold Cold Hearts, both on the underground label Kill Rock Stars. Lead vocalist Mecca Vazie Andrews is a well-known choreographer and the artistic director of "The MOVEMENT movement." She has worked with artists such as Daft Punk, Toro y Moi, Marina Abramović, Venus & the Moon, Ryan Heffington and Liz Glynn. Drummer David Orlando, formerly of Warpaint, is a resident promoter and DJ for L.A. clubs Dub Club and Punky Reggae Party. Guitarist Sharif Dumani played with Atlanta soul man Cody Chesnutt and his Headphone Masterpiece band; he also recorded and plays with Alice Bag. Acclaimed Puerto Rican multi-instrumentalist Pachy Garcia (also in Prettiest Eyes) rounds out the sound on bass guitar. Pulling from late 70's and early 80's post-punk, Sex Stains' music alters between thought-provoking punk, infectious dance rhythms, angular guitar sounds and cacophony. Sex Stains play regularly throughout California, having graced Burger-a-Go-Go, Echo Park Rising and Deserted at the Palms festivals, as well as sharing bills with the lovely likes of the Pop Group, ESG, the Julie Ruin, Shannon & the Clams, the Coathangers, Chain & the Gang, and Alice Bag. Sex Stains supported Cherry Glazerr on a West Coast tour in June of 2016 and will tour the Northeast in September. The band recorded its debut album with Mark Rains at Station House Studio for a September 2, 2016, release on Don Giovanni Records.
