4 dudes with very differing tastes. We all like Mexican food. Chissum hates cheese & loves Paul McCartney. The rest of us thinks he has it backwards.

The Woolly Bandits
“Decked out in mod mini-dresses, white go-go boots and kohl-slathered eyes, Christa Collins makes for a persuasively seductive '60s-style frontwoman, but her groovy image wouldn't mean anything if she couldn't also howl bittersweet tunes like "Midnight Movie" and "Woman of Mass Destruction" with a spitfire intensity. It helps that her guitarist-husband, Rik Collins, powers her garage-rock anthems along with a punk-rock fuzz and volume that keep the L.A. quintet from coming across as safely retro. So many modern garage bands act cheesy, but there's something deliciously sinister about The Woolly Bandits' tangle of spidery guitar riffs, ballpark-organ blasts and pleading vocals.” – LA Weekly 8/23/2012

Bio:
It’s difficult to categorize the sound of The Woolly Bandits, but think Garage Punk meets Wanda Jackson, Motorhead, The Pretenders, X, B-52s, Leslie Gore, The Jabbers and James Brown. I know weird huh? Just have to see and hear for yourselves.

Live show is everything. Woolly Bandit fans get to revel in the explosion at every show, but they don’t get to just sit back and take it all in. The band demands energy from the audience, and they get it. Even if chin stroking is your usual show stance, you’ll be up front and dancing with The Woolly Bandits before you even know what hit you. Being witness to things like the world’s only tandem drum solo doesn’t hurt when it comes to getting the crowd revved up, of course, but the good times comes to getting the crowd revved up, of course, but the good times happening on stage have a way of bringing out the Woolly Bandit inside everyone in the room.

The Woolly Bandits we’re born in 2004 from the resurrection of 1960′s garage rock legends The Seeds as the new back-up band. Los Angeles Veteran Rock N’ Roll Crusader, Rik Collins, rescued acid-guru, and way-out Seeds front man Sky Saxon from virtual obscurity in 2002. Rik (vocals, bass) and Mark Bellgraph (guitar) formed the new back-up band for Sky Saxon and toured Europe three times and helped to bring Sky back to prominence before his passing. The audiences, press and promoters wanted to know who this new young band was. It was at this point the bands European booking agent suggested they start their own band, and The Woolly Bandits were born.

The band named themselves after a nickname one of Sky’s girlfriends had given him and released, in 2006, their debut album “Say Hello To My Little Friend” on Dionysus Records as a three piece.

In 2005, The Woolly Bandits made an important addition to the group, Christa Collins (formerly Christa Larson). Although The Woolly Bandits were actively touring and recording before Christa hit the scene, when she stepped into the band, she set off some kind of musical chemical reaction that sent the band’s evolution and sound into overdrive.

In 2009, Citation Records took notice and signed The Woolly Bandits. They released “Woman of Mass Destruction” the same year, to rave reviews and became legendary KROQ radio DJ Rodney Bingenheimer’s favorite new band and album.

The Woolly Bandits have recently recorded an new album with famed producer Kerry Brown.
The Mo Odds - (Set time: 12:00 AM)
The Mo Odds
The Mo-Odds believe in a genre of rock and roll that invites dancing, shaking, twisting and recklessly spreading your lifeblood from amplifiers to PAs and all the way across to the bar and back.

The people of Los Angeles, having faced an omnivores dilemma of musical delicacies, choose to listen to the sounds of when R&R was still dangerous and new, the simplicity that worried parents, and the raw energy that felt good to share with other deviants. Those built the Mo-Odds and the old fashioned sound they call Los Angeles Rock and Roll. They pride themselves on their live shows where every song is played with the urgency of evacuation instructions during an emergency.

In August 2010 they won LA Records mixtape contest for “best drinking song” and since then have “brought the party” to venues all over Los Angeles and beyond. They were recently selected to perform at The Silver Lake Jubilee where they brought down the house. Join the Mo-Odds. And tell the part of your brain that talks too much to shut up.
