Two Groezrock bands on 1 night!! + 1 awesome local band!
In 2007 CS released their first full-length Sitting Army with Red Scare. A full-time touring schedule followed with bands like Against Me! and The Lawrence Arms. With their second full-length, American Rubicon, in 2009 they won over fans across the country and abroad. Fat Wreck Chords took notice and released their EP Bringing the War Home aswell as their well received, adventurous and exciting third full-length album, Agitations, which was released in 2011.
Here’s what singer/songwriter Devin Peralta has to say:
The album is called Agitations, because most of the songs are lyrically concerned with, well, things that agitate and bother me. Things like prisons that are operated like businesses in an ever increasingly xenophobic and paranoid post 9/11 society. Some songs sound influenced by blues, rockabilly, pop and some even have hints of jazz, funk and folk, but all songs are rooted in an old school punk spirit. We think the new songs are fun to play so we hope people find them as enjoyable to listen to as well. Either way, we’re proud of Agitations.
***Versus The World***
Versus the World is a punk rock band from Santa Barbara, CA on Kung-Fu Records. The band combines post-hardcore with pop punk. They released their debut album, “Versus the World”, in September 2005. Mike Davenport was the long time bassist from The Ataris. They have toured the US and Europe with bands such as No Use For A Name, Suicide Machines, Bouncing Souls, The Lawrence Arms, Social Distortion, I Am The Avalanche, and the Vans Warped Tour. In August 2010, VTW announced their return, lending members from Crooks and Liars (Bryan Charlson-Drums) and Lagwagon (Chris Flippin-Guitar). Their song “Forgive Me” is featured on WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2007.
Four friends, sharing a love of independent music, came together in the summer of 2008 to establish their own musical kingdom: Sweet Empire.
All of them experienced by playing in local punk and hardcore bands, they started to create songs that are melodic and playful, yet at the same time deadly serious. Bringing to mind bands like Descendents, and Dag Nasty among others.
