Acid Tongue
Acid Tongue
Acid Tongue is the fuzz-pop brainchild of Seattle's Guy Keltner (formerly of stoner-rock outfit Fox and the Law) & Ian Cunningham - perverted in their youth by adolescent exposure to mind-altering substances and strange, spiritually-driven parenting techniques. Blending elements of AM-radio soul, vintage psychedelia, folk and slacker rock, the band has developed an avid cult following throughout the US and the UK.

After years of extensive traveling throughout the United States, as well as some experimental therapy in a Mexican yurt, the boys have united to produce their take on the music of their parents' generation. Incorporating imagery of the afterlife, dream-states and drifter-culture, Acid Tongue seeks to enlighten listeners to their swingin', contemplative lifestyle.

In addition to Keltner's lyrical ode to all those suffering from the American condition, Cunningham incorporates a brand of dripping visuals that pay homage to Southern California skate culture, left-wing political activism and 90s Nickelodeon television. Together, the stark imagery and aesthetic has helped the band maintain a lasting impression both online and at their raucous, blown-out live shows.
Bad Vibes
Bad Vibes
A mutinous quintet, Bad Vibes are savage seditionists, bludgeoning the nostalgia out of psychedelia with the orphaned idealism of American punk and early British metal. While recording No One’s Safe (2017 Blind Owl) Bad Vibes shouldered off death, shuttered salvation, and ignited their own insurrection. The result? A searing eight song debut that burns like napalm in the echoes of a sixties resurgence. (Imagine a Dan Auerbach produced Steppenwolf album written by William Blake and fronted by Jim Morrison at motorcycle rally.)

With two new releases slated for 2018 - Wars, Drugs, and Prayer in April and a follow up full length in October - Bad Vibes are quickly earning a fierce reputation for their prolific output and incendiary live performances that have earned them a place among NBC’s Top 9 Bands to See Live in San Diego and listed as one of ListenSD's Top Local Bands to Look Out For in 2018.

In Southern California a new wave of rock & roll artists are changing the very definition of the California sound, in the midst of the pack are Bad Vibes, howling like folklore in the delirium of a new moon.
