Hailing from Lake Forest, California, Water District is an up and coming indie rock band with a unique and compelling sound. Formed in 2011 by guitarist and vocalist Tice Griffin, he quickly gained the attention of bassist Blaine Scot Prow, guitarist Zack Mueller and drummer A.J. Awasthi who aptly named themselves Water District.
Drawing influences from a wide variety of musical styles such as the melancholic sounds of bands like Death Cab for Cutie to the driving melodies of bands like The Strokes, the Water District crafted a sound all their own which I Am Entertainment Magazine called, "an industrial, organic and untamed sound that perfectly describes what an indie rock band is."
The band quickly found a groove and recorded their first 10 song EP "This Was Worth the Drive" which included the singles "Skywalker" and "Rewind." The EP was well received be the public, and was praised for its dreamy guitar soundscapes and soothing vocals. Ready and yearning to play live, the band embarked on a west coast tour, in the summer of 2012, playing to eager audiences from Santa Monica to Seattle who enjoyed the unique performance the band gave.
Recently the band has been playing local shows at well known venues in Hollywood such as The Key Club and The Whiskey A-Go-Go, working on new material and planning a cross country summer tour. They plan to record a new 5 song EP before leaving for the tour and look forward to entertaining crowds nationwide.
The Insufferables can be described as a schizophrenic blend of the New York Dolls, XTC and REM. They present jangle and crunch guitars, frequently in the same song, and unusually articulate vocals in the idiom of Lux interior or Standard Ridgeway that convey our important messages of love, animal welfare and naughty sex. They were formed in 2009 by a handful of San Francisco musicians looking for a loud outlet to express the songs trapped within.
