Audacity + The Vagoos + Tweens
Audacity California, USA
“Known for their youthful exuberance and exuberant youthfulness, beloved in Milwaukee, ignored in Olympia, infamous in St Augustine, disrespected in LA; The audacity is the best band in the world and has been for nine years now (!!! mad seniority) We play sometimes with Todd C , who was in Baghdad before you were in your dad’s bag. New album out soon!”
The Vagoos Rosenheim
The Vagoos created a nasty, screaming Fuzz-monster doped on ecstatic, hallucinating space-echoes, schnapps and acid. It`s all about wild and loud Garage Rock combining Punk-, Surf-, Psych- and Blues-elements.
Tweens Cincinnati, USA
Self-described as a "nasty, doo-woppy band," Cincinnati's TWEENS borrow from their hometown's rock history as well as from bad-girl punk from the '70s through the '90s. The trio formed in April 2012 when vocalist/guitarist Bridget Battle began playing a Dixie-Cups song with drummer Jerri Queen and bassist Peyton Copes in the practice space of the house they shared. It was very different musical territory than the trio's other projects: Battle was a member of the electronic noise band Public Housing, while Queen and Copes played in the experimental punk act Vacation. Soon after forming, TWEENS began playing local shows and released a cassette of cover songs, Live @ Mohawk. The band got a big break in 2013 when it was recommended as an opening act for one of the Breeders' Last Splash reunion gigs by the owner of a local record store. After playing that show, TWEENS were brought on for much of the Breeders' East Coast dates and for their entire West Coast tour. Between these shows and dates with the Black Lips, the band still managed to record its self-titled debut album with Eli Janney at Brooklyn's Saltlands Studio, and TWEENS was released in April 2014.
