The Struts are a five-piece band from Oakland, California. Their formula is simple. They play full-throttle rhythm and blues and they rock it hard. It's fast. It's loud. And when singer, Farrah Ancell, steps up to the microphone - when you hear her deliver that first note with all the soul and grit and growl of a young Etta James you'll know something serious is about to go down. It's punk rock in the juke joint and it swings like a mother.
THE BARBARY COASTERS
Local '60s beat combo featuring Johnny Bartlett (Phantom Surfers), David Troutt (Saturn V), Pat Phelan (Brentwoods), and newcomer/chanteuse Jessica Roux. The band's new LP, Honey For Sale, includes 17 tracks of early-'60s-styled R&R magic, delivered with twin guitars, organ, drums, saxophone, xylophone, and more.

I'm still planning to go to the show though, because the line-up still rocks.
I'm attending as well. Seeing The Barbary Coasters is always a treat.
Go-Going-Gone-Girls unable to perform:
"go-go dancers with broken feet do not a good show make"
THE GO-GOING-GONE GIRLS <-- cancelled
Their three-part harmonies and synchronized choreography are backed by an all-star four-piece lineup, delivering a dexterous and distinctive blend of 60s go-go, soul, bubblegum, girl-group, and garage. Hear them sing, wail, scream, harmonize, plead, beg, and shout from atop their totemic pedestals. See them shimmy, shake, twist, dog, monkey, duck, bird, funky chicken, and pony like their ancestors of yore.
* Featuring CARLA LEASE, DEBBIE HORN, AUDREY MENCONI, DANA BURT (drums), ADRIAN GORMLEY (sax/organ), PAUL BERGMANN (bass) and KLAUS FLOURIDE (guitar)
