The Richmond Sluts
Hailing from the Richmond District of San Francisco, The Richmond Sluts are a revved up rock n roll band that is timeless. With influences from garage, punk, psych, and rock n roll The Richmond Sluts are guaranteed to make you move, sweat, dance, and leave you begging for more…
The Richmond Sluts story began in 1998 by founding members Chris Beltran (bass) and Shea Roberts (guitar/ vocals) who met and shared similar tastes in music, i.e. the Clash, the Rolling Stones, The New York Dolls, and the Stooges. After completing the line up with the addition of Justin Lynn (keyboards), they developed a sound that was particularly their own. Upon putting out a self-titled Full Length on Disaster Records in 2001 and touring the US, The Richmond Sluts began to draw attention in the underground garage and rock scene, playing with bands such as The
Brian Jones Town Massacre and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
After a brief hiatus the current line up consists of Chris B, Shea Rocker, Justin Lynn, KC Love (drums) and new addition Jesse Nichols (guitar), they are reunited and sure to grab your soul, shake your body, and make you wish they had never left…
The Asteroid No. 4
Their sound, a hypnotic hybrid of several different genres filtered through the kaleidoscope of all things psych, krautrock, shoegaze, folk and even 70s "cosmic" country-rock, has matured them to the point of originality rather than simply homage.
"The American Psychedelicists have been at it for well over a decade and have eight albums to prove it. Bizarrely though they just keep getting better and the band's latest release Hail to the Clear Figurines is their most essential so far." -Pop Junkie
Lolita started in early 2004 in San Francisco. The group is Rachel (Organ, Fender Rhodes bass), Chantelle (Drums) and Nick (Guitar, Vox). The band broke up in late 2006. and their unreleased record, "The Volunteers of a New Society" will be available online and in limited run Aug 31 at Brick and Mortar Music Hall.
