Great night of music by real punk rockers. (Each band features those who played at the old Fab Mab.)
The Cramp-ons are a tribute band to original psycho-billy band "The Cramps", based out of San Francisco founded in 2014. The sex-infused, basic rock and roll music sounds as fresh and dangerous as ever. The band features at three members of San Francisco's The Insufferables with an addition of Heather Dammit, bassist of San Francisco’s Zbornak, lending more bottom to the sound.
The Cramp-ons play around the bay area at clubs like: MakeOut Room, Elbo Room, The Ritz, El Rio, and more. Live recordings can be heard on www.soundcloud/cramp-ons or visit the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/crampons/
Dick and Jane
Dave Dalton, Marco Zermeno, Greg Langston and Linda XYZ are DICK and JANE. Started back in November, 1988, with two electric guitars, a drum machine and Roger Migdow. Dick and Jane played with some great bands like GREEN DAY, THE DWARVES, the MELVINS, THE MENTORS, NO ALTERNATIVE, NO USE FOR A NAME and the late, great JOHNNY THUNDERS...hey Jane, see Spot run? The original line-up broke up around 1992 ... and since August 2013, the band has been up and running, playing shows and adding members: they refuse to stop! https://www.facebook.com/Dick-and-Jane-668992419829089/
The Next was formed by Mike Tringali and Brittley Black (Crime and The Readymades). Their first live performance was Halloween night in 1978 at the Mabuhay Gardens, with Crime headlining and the first performances of both Pearl Harbor and The Explosions and a then unknown band called The Dead Kennedys. The original line-up included Mike (guitar/ vocals) Brittley (drums), John San Filippo (bass) and Jimmy Crucifix (guitar) and played regularly at The Mabuhay Gardens. https://www.facebook.com/TheNextPunkRock/
