Spoon Benders
Spoon Benders is a progressive psych-rock powerhouse that has been relentlessly crisscrossing the United States, leaving a trail of newly acquired fans in their wake. Spoon Benders have become synonymous with an electrifying stage presence that can only be described as loud, controlled chaos.

Spoon Benders have been carving their path through the musical landscape since their inception, and are now consistently supporting notable acts such as Frankie and The Witch Fingers, L7, Fuzz, Meatbodies, Deap Vally, Death Valley Girls, and The Paranoyds.

In April of this year, Spoon Benders unleashed their sophomore album, "How Things Repeat," upon the eager ears of the public. The album is a testament to the band's artistic evolution and ability to push the boundaries of their sound. "How Things Repeat" has been met with resounding acclaim, cementing Spoon Benders' status as a force to be reckoned with in the psychedelic rock landscape.
H E A T

Heat was an accident. Heat was the ass backward product of a causal mix of gases that made the spark that made the universe. It is the transfer of energy. It is the energy of atoms molecules and ions vibrating together as fast and frantically as possible through chemical reaction or friction until burnout. It’s a wave. The compulsion to breed in animals. 

H E A T is for burnouts. It’s for the kids that smoke cigarettes underneath the bleachers during lunch and grow out their hair and steal out of their parents stash. It’s for the weirdos, by the weirdos. For people who don’t own a car and have to borrow their friends to make the show three hours away. It’s four long shadows cast along the blacktop pavement on a sweltering July evening. 

H E A T is the unforeseen explosion that wipes away everything prior to it and leaves endless possibilities in its wake. Roll down your windows. Take off a layer. H E A T is in season. H E A T is here for the summer. 

And they came to melt your face.

Gumby's Junk

Oakland based art rock band Gumby’s Junk began in 2018 as acomplete mishap. Pushing musical surrealism to its limits with outrageous harmonies, circus-fast riffs, and genre mishmash, they have been described as oblique, colorful madness and like you are running fast and looking at the ground. After you listen, you’ll know that when they ring the bell, you get a treat.
