Vinyl Release show for Drug Hunt LP.

San Diego’s Drug Hunt, formerly known as Bad Vibes returns with a brooding
and boundaryless EP. The s/t EP is more than its parts. A true concept album for
the post-millennial age, the band confronts ritualized power structures in an
increasingly desensitized society with Post-Punk defiance, psychedelic
perceptiveness, and the driving ambition of early British hard rock.

Early feedback has likened the release to “A modern Doors album produced by
Steve Albini, written by Nick Cave, and fronted by The Stooges at a biker bar.”

Wild Wild Wets
Wild Wild Wets
Wild Wild Wets was founded in 2011 by three former members of the Old In Out, who had recently split; Mike Turi (Trap Gold), Marco Salvatore Piro (Vinyl Film), and Ryan White (aka Ryan Vincent Bohan). They were joined by singer/keyboardist Priscilla Castro and bassist Taejon Romanik (Dark Thirty, Jeans Wilder). Piro and White/Bohan were only with the Old In Out during its final few months.

"We're a party psychedelic rock band," says Piro. "We're trying to make it an experience. Anyone can start a band and have five people on stage playing their hearts out, but we wanted to add something more for the concertgoer."

Turi cites the Penetrators (New York's, not San Diego's) as a top influence. He and Bohan also have a side band called Trap Gold, founded in 2010 along with Kelly Sullivan and synth-bassist Chase Elliott (the Kabbs). Former Old In Out guitarist Rory Truesdale launched a solo project called Sleeping Ghost/Electric Crush.

In concert, the group is often accompanied by projection artist, John Kelley. "It's Mikey's vision," Piro says of the band. "It's his world that he's created. He's very Andy Warhol-esqe, but not all weird in the bad way. He's a very creative person, a doer, an artist, and one of the best painters I've ever met. He's a multifaceted individual. So he's like the good parts of Warhol, but not a pervert or any of that shit."
San Pedro El Cortez
San Pedro El Cortez
One of the pioneering bands of the garage rock scene contemporary psy-Tijuana is, no doubt, San Pedro El Cortez. With his short but fruitful career of more than three years, have shared the stage with bands such as high impact and Arrrghs Wau! (Spain), Black Time (England), Davila 666 (Puerto Rico), Rodrigo et Rodrigo (France), Vicente Gayo (Mexico), not to mention the fabulous cufflink that have developed in various presentations to groups across the border as No Bunny, Spirit Photography, God Equals Genocide, The Fast Takers, Lazer Zeppelin, Broken Water, among many others. They have also been involved in various musical reviews in the relevant sections of the magazine Thrasher or Caviar Left No. 1, to name a few.
