Carrying on a lineage that stretches from The Doors to FIDLAR, indie punk band Strawberry Fuzz document the wildlife in and around their Venice Beach turf. Channeling stories of parties, junkies, sex, violence and camaraderie through a keenly observant lens, they meticulously capture the smell, sound, taste and feel of life on the streets, in the bars, bedrooms and basements of the bleary side of Los Angeles.
Inspired by artists like The Cramps, Black Flag and The Germs as well as Elvis, RL Burnside and Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Strawberry Fuzz’s manic live show was perfectly captured on their debut collection of demos Fuzztapes Vol. 1. Now back with a full-length record releasing this winter, they continue to rip up stages and whip up pits all along the West Coast. See them at bit.ly/fuzzshows
Slaughterhouse emerged from the South Bay of Los Angeles in late 2017 and hit the ground running with local and out-of-state shows, and an EP that would define their punk and death rock sound.
They have continued to build their name playing explosive live shows with songs from their debut LP, Fun Factory; out as a split release on Todd Congelliere of F.Y.P’s label Recess Records, and Water Under the Bridge Records. They’ve shared stages with the likes of Pennywise, Social Distortion, Adolescents, Dead Kennedys, and Alkaline Trio. In 2022 they toured with Bad Religion and played sold out shows with Amyl & The Sniffers, and Destroy Boys, with no signs of slowing down. Most recently, Slaughterhouse hit the road for a month-long US tour with UK pals, Grade 2, and finished the tour with a Punk Rock Bowling club show with Alice Bag.
With Meriel O’Connell on vocals, Eddie Cairns on bass, Taylor Ramirez on guitar, and Nick Aguilar on drums, the band continues to write explosive new songs and are currently working on a new album.
