THE SCRATCHES - LIVE
Friday @ 7pm


The Scratches are a fast paced punk band of four best friends. They don’t have one freakin' singer, they have three. Armed with guitars, they alternate lead vocal roles, harmonizing and singing duets, and even tackling the occasional three part harmony (which they affectionately call "barbershop punk"). That's right, they have two male, and one female, lead singers. You haven’t seen this before in a punk band, but wow is it effective. It’s fun, it’s catchy and it’s the real deal. Sometimes you’ll swear you’re watching Rancid, considering the lead guitarist is a monster…on bass. He rips through the mix with crazy bass lines and rich, raspy vocals with charming attitude. Then you listen again and hear more guitar and vocal influences like Green Day and Blink-182, a smoother, more polished popular approach to punk. The two guitarists take turns delivering catchy guitar riffs and combined, this frontman trio will take you on a tour of various artists, like your very own live custom playlist, song after song. Everything you love about popular punk and everything you never knew you could love about it, they got it. Tattoos, fast fun double time drums, catchy choruses, trade off vocals, stage jumps and a cohesive on-stage friendship will hook you like nothing else. Despite being a relatively new band, you would never know it at a Scratches show. Having already developed local support from prior projects, The Scratches had an awaiting hungry crowd and reputation long before their first show. Since then, they have hit the ground running, snatching up shows big and small, snagging fan after fan, and regularly running out of CDs.
Step up to the main stage Friday night, you just might get addicted to The Scratches.

Cadaver Dogs

Saturday @ 1pm



Cadaver Dogs will be performing once again at Hell City where they will be tearing out your eyelids and slipping into your synapses with the smooth ferocity of a black mamba on bath salts, they’re taking over your conscious, and there is nothing you can do about it. This ain’t no regular fucking band, baby. It’s a high-octane rock & roll hallucination. Cadaver Dogs have rewritten the rules on excess, indulgence, hedonism, and when it comes to gratification, too much is never enough. So if you’re looking to get some strange, you’ve come to the right place. One live show is all it takes to make a believer, a psychoactive rock revival that has seen frothing first-timers carried off in fits of rabid ecstasy. Cadaver Dogs have spread their dirty disease across the Midwest multiple times over, supporting bands including Andrew W.K., Anti-Flag, Foxy Shazam, Semi Precious Weapons, Valient Thorr, Karma to Burn, Riverboat Gamblers, Honor Society, and Hollerado, and they’ll continue their path of consumption until there’s no one left to corrupt. Lucky for you, their next stop is your brain stem.

Having already released a pair of erratic EPs, 2010’s Thrill Ride and 2011’s On All Fours, Cadaver Dogs will deliver their highly-anticipated debut full length album superloose in late 2012, a mesmerizing array of delirium-inducing rock ragers and kaleidoscopic freak-outs for those adventurous enough to take the trip. They’ll beat you to death and jolt you back to life with one quick thrust, and you’ll walk away with the scars to prove it, if you walk away at all.

So throw down that needle and feel what’s like to have a one night stand with a savage beast. Your hormones will rage, you’ll scream for more, but the Dogs are moving on and you’re just another lucky victim. Think you can handle it? Then get superloose with Cadaver Dogs and take a peek at the band that everybody wants to see.
