Black Eyed Vermillion
BLACK EYED VERMILLION was born Gary Christian Vermillion in 1969 as the product of a one night stand between an unemployed circus freak and a jackal. Abandoned by his mother, he was adopted by a roaming tribe of Buddhist Monk street sweepers, eventually causing him to find inner-peace within the gutter.
At age 7, young Vermillion fell into an open sewer. After being trapped for three days he was finally rescued; unconscious and badly hurt. When he awoke he could only communicate in swear words for a year and his voice was severely damaged from the septic fumes. He also sustained a head injury, resulting in his first set of black eyes which would lead to the nick name he still bears to this day.
At 11 Vermillion set out to see the world but mostly saw it from behind bars. As he stumbled around the world from bus stations to bars to shelters to jails, he was always just lucky enough to cross paths with some of the most talented people in the underground music scene. Stevie Tombstone, One Armed Willie, Handsome Andy Gibson, Cornelious ‘the Pain’ Wickenburg, Joe Buck Yourself, Heathen Bill, Stix the Clown, Whiskey Dick and of course the legendary Shelton Williams the 1st were just a few of the people that would help him realize that he had absolutely NO musical talent! But they also taught him that it didn’t matter as long as there was a song in his heart.
Combining the elements of American roots music with the dark anger of punk and grindcore, B.E.V. will be attempting to play as many gigs as possible, depending on the bands ever demanding Rehab schedule.
The Silver Shine
Custom painted black/red upright bass, extreme energy, vintage microphones… these are the trademarks of THE SILVER SHINE on stage. This vintage punk rock and roll trio came from Hungary and their 7th album will hit the record stores by Wolverine Records on the 19th April, 2013. The band formed in Budapest, Hungary and they are active since 2004. They toured worldwide in 33 countries including Brazil, almost all the countries in Europe from Turkey to England, from Portugal to Russia and after their 2 months North American tour during last Autumn they will back in the USA for a 3 weeks tour this June. They do something what no one other else can do. The recipe: vintage punk rock and roll with a thunder-handed female upright bassist with influences of bands like SOCIAL DISTORTION, LIVING END or the legendary RAMONES. Now they are working on the screenplay of their brand new video so you will watch the result of it this Spring!

Mean Street Meanie
The Kansas City, Missouri-based Punk Rock trio American Dischord were formed in 2012 by singer/guitarist Tyler Temple. After debuting in 2013 with their 7-song EP "Songs for Sinners," on Splatterhouse Wreckords the band immediately hit the road, touring almost constantly for the next three years. The band’s music has been described as “Haul ass Rock n’ Roll” but its fair to say their sound is almost as ferocious as their work ethic. Though still a relatively new band, they‘ve already built quite the resume, including major endorsements from Moniker Guitars, Seymore Duncan, Masters of Maple Drums, and performances with a virtual who’s-who of the punk rock compendium, including The Misfits, Agent Orange, The Adicts, GBH, Flatfoot 56, The Bollweevils, Lower Class Brats, DRI, The Casualties, The Queers, Guttermouth, Agnostic Front, The Murder Junkies and many more. They’ve built a national following through sheer force of will (and a few intensely sweaty shows). American Dischord’s never say die attitude will be on full display through 2016. They are currently putting the finishing touches on a new record which is due out this fall, and will be touring all over the U.S. and Asia throughout 2016.
Psychobilly band from Los Angeles, California.
I was born in Everett, WA in December of 1973. My Mom was a hippie & Dad was a bit of a redneck. I feel that I have benefited greatly from the contrast between them as I have grown more & more into who I am. I'm old fashioned & polite in many ways but also quite progressive & radical in others. I have no use for the "isms" if you know what I mean & feel that intolerance should not be tolerated especially when involving said "isms". Basically, if you are a racist, a man or woman hater, homophobe, religious tyrant, etc, I have better things to do than deal with your ignorance. I am a proud parent to the coolest kid in the world. We are best friends & I love him with all of my heart. I am "happily single" at this point in my life & am in no hurry to be in an unhealthy relationship ever again. I have settled in the past & tried to make love work when I wasn't ready for love & this has resulted in eminent failure repeatedly on the relationship front. Knowing this, I don't blame myself or any of my former girlfriends for these failed relationships & know that love will happen when I am ready for it & happen to find a match to myself who is also ready for the same. As far as music goes, I put my heart & soul & life into it to the greatest degree possible & unapologetically so. I have nothing to hide in life & why should my music be any different? I believe that the best music & art to be found is honest, sincere, passionate & often times autobiographical & mine is no different. Some will enjoy what I do & others will not but I know for a fact that I what I do IS real & people who listen with open ears & heart should pick up on this... This honesty is what I am most proud of when it comes to my music & what I create/express with it. I started playing guitar in 1985-86 & have been in 30+ bands since starting my 1st one in 1987. I hope you'll check out some of the links & give a listen to them....
