Eureka California at Atlas & The Anchor

“Cobwebs On The Wind” (Today via Happy Happy Birthday To Me Records, the Athens, Ga based garage-punk duo consisting of Jake Ward and Marie A.

Skinny Girl Diet at Dirty World

Last night The Hope played host to a blistering show featuring emergent grunge-girl gang Skinny Girl Diet and Los Angeles duo Girlpool, supported by fellow Americans Eureka California and London pop/post-punks Witching Waves.
