The Derby Girls will be in full garb rolling around, they'll have a table with info about their upcoming season and we will be raffling tickets to one of their bouts. Anything else we can raffle off will help fund their season.
The Ringers are a four-piece Los Angeles-based rock n' roll group. They have been referred to as a tight band of pirates out to rape and pillage your senses with their unique sound and explosive show. "We're not trying to re-invent the wheel, just roll it OUR WAY." The Ringers have a very exciting sound much like The Hives and early Rolling Stones. Their second album Headlocks & Highkicks will be in progress in the month of November and will also feature their new single "Apocolypto."
MUSIC FOR ANIMALS
Music For Animals are a four-piece indie rock band from San Francisco. Music For Animals is signed to Three Ring Records, with whom they released their debut self-titled album in 2007. A follow-up release for their debut album is to be expected soon. "MFA's role in the big picture will be to try and utilize the new resources in technology to spread the music as far and wide as possible without any major support from a company or record label" says the band.
