Strung Out
Strung Out
Strung Out has been comfortably residing over at Fat Wreck for close to 16 years now, but it's pretty clear that the guys are hardly resting on their laurels. The band has perfected its metal-infused skatepunk to ridiculously tight, guitar-shredding proportions, razor sharp licks pairing with precise, rapid-fire drumming to knock listeners over again and again. But as always, Strung Out's aggression is perfectly complemented by the slightly worn yet fiercely passionate vocals of Jason Cruz; the subtle tenderness he brings to the table keeps their collective power in check, ensuring there to be just as much heart as muscle in the proceedings. Fat Wreck Chords

STRUNG OUT will be performing their classic albums "Suburbanteenagewastelandblues" and "Twisted By Design" in their entirety on this show!!!
The Bombpops
The Bombpops
Formed in 2007, The Bombpops quickly became a mainstay of the storied San Diego punk scene, channeling youthful aggression through a healthy reverence for the genre's progenitors and musical skill well beyond their years.

From salty dive bars to hallowed music halls, the band has toured the United States extensively – along the way forging new definitions of "acceptable personal hygiene", pushing the limits of what might be considered a "bathroom" and cultivating a devout fan base that stretches from coast to coast.

Sharing stages with such revered acts as Bad Religion, NOFX, No Use For a Name, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Good Riddance, Pulley, GBH, TSOL, Teenage Bottlerocket, None More Black, The Frustrators, and Strung Out, the Bombpops have been privileged to play alongside many of the bands that inspired them.

Having released two EPs to date, joined the Red Scare Industries family in 2010 and relocated to Los Angeles, the Bombpops continue to provide Southern California with their own brand of blistering pop punk – serving up an energetic, acerbic musical attack that is equal parts sugar, spice and hydrofluoric acid.
