Minutemen

The band comprised guitarist/vocalist D Boon and his childhood friend, bassist/vocalist Mike Watt, along with a former high school classmate on drums, George Hurley.

North Lincoln

North Lincoln tells Southern Lovin': “We love to play, which is the real foundation of what North Lincoln eventually became to us. We’ve always been doing other bands at the same time and continue to come back to North Lincoln out of a real love of doing it. With the three of us together in a room writing, we know that there’s no real boundries or guidelines for what we need to do or sound like to be North Lincoln.

Dwarves

The Dwarves are an American punk rock band, formed in Chicago, Illinois in the mid-1980s. They are currently based in San Francisco, California. They are known for their nuanced punk repertoire, and controversial lyrics. Since the hardcore punk and scum punk sounds of their early days, they have recently developed more of a pop-punk influence. Their shows have been notable for some aggressive fights on stage (with the audience and even a cop), and because "He Who Cannot Be Named" performs either in nothing but a jockstrap or totally nude, and makes no attempt to hide behind his guitar.
