The Darlings
The Darlings
The Darlings are dedicated to staying true to the roots of Rock 'n’ Roll, Country and Americana. Founded in 2005 The Darlings have already hit the stage with such legendary acts as Pennywise, Social Distortion, Bad Religion, Youth Brigade, TSOL, Jason Cruz and Howl, Strung Out, Face to Face, Sum 41, and the Circle Jerks to just name a few.

The greatest drive for the band is creating an Organic, Soulful, Hard Rock sound without relying on auto tune/ pro tools alterations. The New Escape was their first full length debut, which had gotten a lot of attention in their native land of Los Angeles. The hit song "Broken Heart Still Beating" was #1 for many weeks on the world wide known radio station KROQ, Locals Only. This seasoned rock outfit won the 2010 Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands.

The Darlings uncompromising DIY ethic and years of paying their dues in the underground has finally brought them here; To the highly anticipated completion of their compelling third album "Made of Phantoms".

Be sure to catch a live show, they do not disappoint!
Authentic Sellout
Authentic Sellout
Authentic $ellout was formed in late November 2006 by Sulo King and Andy Danger. The original lineup included Marky Unknown on drums and Jeff Spicoli on guitar. The band was meant to be a novelty Punk band that was put together just for one show. The response from the show was very positive, so the guys decided to keep the band going as a side project and play shows every once in a while. The shows got better and better and in December 2007, seeing that the band was going to go full time, Jeff Spicoli left to focus on his own band, Dante's Boneyard. In January 2008, Dingo joined the band as a full time guitar player, and Authentic $ellout finally became a full time band. At the end of 2008 Dingo left the band and Timmy Two Times took over as the band's guitar player until his departure from the band in mid 2009 and was replaced by Jeremy "the Germ".

Authentic $ellout is a high energy Punk Rock band that blends old school 70's UK based Punk Rock with 80's West Coast and a blend of old and modern Rock to form what they call "Mock Rock". Their mission is to make fun of what the music industry and Rock n Roll has become. More music less production. That is the Authentic Sellout way.

Their music is something every kid and even adults can relate to, with strong messages about the realities of everyday life like songs like "Working Class Stiff". This song highlights the stress of a typical 9-5 job and is an anthem for the working man. "No End" is a song protesting against war, greed, the system, and the corruption of corporations and our nation's government. "Pretty Pretty Girl" is a funny but realistic view of the male ego when it comes to dating women. Their live show is full of raw emotion and high energy. If you haven't had a chance to see them, then definitely check out one of their shows. Authentic $ellout is going to prove to you that punk is definitely not dead. You're either sold out or a sellout.
