    • Hey guys, I wanted to use this as an introduction too, I love this website and everything in it, there are some hidden garage gems that I had no idea existed and I'm glad I signed up! 

      Now, if you ever have the time, check out my bandcamp and tell me what you think, these are Garage/Surf/Punk Rock tracks that I record in my bedroom in Canada. If you like it, share it with your friends, it would be really gnarly!

      Have an awesome day

    • oh cool! I liked the Ride Theory a lot. Curious to hear Young Rival now

    • August 19, 2013 11:36 AM CDT
    • Ride Theory are now a 3 piece going by the name of Young Rival....Young Rival are minimal guitar pop with a bit of 60's Kinks influences. I've seen them live a couple of times and they still put on a pretty good show.

    • Hey there voulez vous couches avec mois- Your Girlfriend needs some help outside of the bedroom! We've got a couple shows set up in Ottawa and Montreal this summer but need to fill out some empty dates. We're looking to get on bills in Ottawa for August 23, 24 and a Montreal date on the 25! We're a happy punk/ surf band- you can check out some demos here . We're hoping to have an ep out by then and will hand you a tape for your services:) Even if you could just let me know some fun venues that would appreciate our company that'd be great! You can add a discussion post, pm me, or send an email to . Looking forward to your responses- don't ignore me!

      Love always,

      Your Girlfriend.
