Hailing from northern California’s Bay Area, Heroes at Gunpoint draw their influences from the eclectic Oakland-San Francisco-Berkeley musical trifecta of legendary punk, metal and rock artists. With decades-worth of collective music experience, Heroes at Gunpoint bring a mature, yet fresh perspective to their mixture of rock, punk and metal by drawing on influences like Rancid, early AFI and Rise Against. The four-piece stay true to the Bay Area’s creative, energetic, take-no-prisoners style of punk while adding metal and rock overtones for a refreshingly creative style all its own. With driving guitar riffs, powerful bass lines, lightning-fast drum beats, and balls-to-the-wall vocals, this four-piece has honed their collective music experience into gut-punching punk rock for the 21st Century.

Vision Theory

Pop Punk
(Danville,CA)
close



Vision Theory was formed in 2010 by Tim Dimayuga, Jon Young, Nick Dodge, and Cameron Coutermarsh in Danville CA. Starting as just a cover “jam band” with four guitarists and no bassist, drummer, or vocalist they soon realized that some things needed to change. Stephen Balogh was brought in as the drummer, Jon Young switched to bass, and after going through several trial singers Tim Dimayuga stepped up as the lead vocalist with Cassi Tessandori as backup. Cameron Coutermarch decided to step down his commitment and decided that he would rather be a backup guitar player when needed. The band quickly became a moderate success around the Danville area, covering mostly Blink 182, Green Day, and Weezer music. Vision Theory played some of the same stages as superstar bands such as Journey and Train and played in front of crowds as large as 2,000. After some drama between the two singers, Cassi decided to quit the band and Nick decided he should follow. Nick was replaced by Richard Torres whose previous band, Only Human, had disbanded. Vision Theory is now writing their own music and has begun recording and hopes to get their first EP out within the next year. (indefinite hiatus)

Where The Sidewalk Ends

Punk (Walnut Creek, CA)
close
In a dimly lit hospital in Hobo-ken, New Jersey, the members of former Japanese Techno Pop band, Funk Posse 5ive found themselves a fates door. Once deciding to reunite as a punk band called Where The Sidewalk ends the four members Justin, Ray, Greg, and Sean hit the legendary roads of Japan once more. Riots broke out, and angry fans burnt Tokyo's skyline to the ground. Where the Sidewalk Ends was exiled from Japan an relocated to Walnut Creek and began to prowl the local punk scene. After being released from jail for repeated public indecency, Justin and Sean finally realized that drugs should only be taken in moderation, and focused their efforts towards more respectable en-devours such as bird watching and hostile corporate take-overs, while Ray and Greg battled their inner demons on a deserted island just south of North Dakota. They eventually returned home out because they finally ran out Natty Ice. Drawing on their inspiration from their wild adventures, they began recording their first E.P which they are still hard at work on.
