Open Your Ears, This Is Some Real Music...
The band is called Bootstraps out of the L.A area, lets start off with some of the bands remakes like "I wanna dance with somebody" this is done in a classic way, they slow it down and it's amazing. This band offers some out statnding music and the most heart felt lyrics we ever heard, the band itself is the perfect mix of drums, acustic and voices.
When we hear music like this, it makes us happy that there are still solid bands who put the music first, yeah, there are bands that want all the fame and never want to do all the hard work, but this is not one of those bands. This group has been grinding at gigs from coast to coast hitting small shows as well as huge sold out ones. One thing for sure is this band live is amazing, you need to go see them when they hit up your town.
With songs like "Earned It" and "Won't Back Down" you can hear some awesome lyrics with a sound that is there very own style, other songs like "Pictures Of You" and "Everywhere" offer more of a story then a song and hit you right in the moment. The new album (HOMAGE) is packed with great music, it's a solid CD and we think it's A MUST GRAB!
More About The Band Bootstraps,
Singer-songwriter Jordan Beckett is a craftsman whose folk-pop has a filmic quality, a trait that has served the Portland, Ore., native well. Beckett, doing business under the name Bootstraps, got his break when actor/director Sam Jaeger asked him to write songs for the 2011 movie “Take Me Home;” besides the half-dozen tunes in that film, Bootstraps’ songs have found their way onto television shows such as “No Ordinary Family,â€ “Private Practice,â€ “Betrayal,” and “Parenthood,” among others.
Bootstraps’ self-titled album, featuring production work from Skip Saylor and Richard Dodd, was originally self-released, but it was pulled back after the band’s signed to Harvest Records, which now will release it Feb. 18. The evocative collection recalls a more world-weary Ray LaMontagne; in fleshing out his tunes, Beckett recruited the talents of two old college buddies familiar to followers of the L.A. scene, David Quon and Nathan Warkentin of We Barbarians.
And ex-Cold War Kids drummer Matt Aveiro has now joined Bootstraps’ live band. The expansive single “Sleeping Giant” has some My Morning Jacket ambitions, so adjust your volume accordingly.

D.O.L is a metal band from Finland, that will ROCK YOUR FACE OFF!
If you're looking for a hard rocking killer sound, then you have to check out this band, let me tell you, this band takes loud to a hole new level, this band is what rock was ment to sound like. Great songs like "DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS" is a smooth song that starts off with a great riff and ends with one hell of a sound, the song has passion and meaning. Another killer song we liked was a song called "HEARTS KILLING FIELD" this is a hard rocking song that tells a story and makes you want to listen to the well written lyrics, the vocals are very good, the guitars are insane good and the drums are a perfect mix.
In the summer of 2017 they reinvented there selves as a band and changed our style radically, as it used to be really heavy stuff and the vocals used to be mostly of screaming and other "unclean" techniques, that is all gone now and MC uses mainly just a clean voice.
The actual musical style is really different, as it was some kind of "trash metal" they have turned the tone into more hard rock/heavy rock and there are still some metal in the mix too.
Currently, the band is fine tuning the songs for their next album and live set.If you have the chance to catch them live, we reccomend getting your asses there, this band has style and sound and the show is AMAZING! You can thank me later!
Look for this band in the 2019 GFsix Show's BATTLE OF THE BANDS coming soon and cast your vote!

A little bit more about this band called RaLeaf...
RaLeaf, based out of Philadlephia, PA, was born in a garage in Westfield, NJ when high school friends Mike Marks and Mark Boyd started playing together in the Boyd Family’s loft in 2004. In high school, the two of them spent hours playing guitars and singing, honing their skills and tightening their partnership.
In college, Mike met bassist Jake Irwin who's innate understanding of harmony fill out the band’s rich sound. Rounding out the foursome is the hard-hitting Mark Anderson who eats drums for breakfast to start his day. Mark fortuitously met his future band mates at a bar one night in New Jersey, and the rest is history.
Together, the draw on a number of influences, from the Red Hot Chili Peppers to The Beatles to Sublime and 311 to Led Zeppelin.

Kittenhead was started in May 2012 and is based in West Hollywood, CA,with some members located in San Francisco, CA. Kittenhead played its first live shows in September 2012 in the Pacific Northwest, with a headlining slot at the Comet in Seattle. Since then, the band has played all of the major cities on the West Coast, with fans requesting to return to flowing from every show. Kittenhead has played several West Coast Roller Derbies including the Sugartown Roller Derby, Viva Roller Derby and San Diego Derby Dolls halftime shows, where high energy was an understatement. After gigs at The Roxy (LA), The World Famous Doll Hut (Anaheim) and El Rio (San Francisco), it's time to get this show on the radio.
This band is a fast rockin wild style band, if you wan't music that fills up a room and has a meaning, then you have to check this band out. They have a style that will make you say wow and the lyrics in their songs are powerful. The singer (KIVI) will have you groovin to the soung, her energentic powerful voice is great, the lead giutar (DD) is a another female that plays with a passion, the bass player (VJJ) is yet another female that hit's the strings hard. Then there is the drumer (O-Face) this guy will not only smash the drums but will also play his heart out.
I Must say, this band reminds me a lot of "Joan Jett and The Black Hearts", they also sound a bit like "Foo Fighters" and we all know that is some heavy sounds.
They have put together some amazing tunes, like "TATOO" & "PRIVACY" that are very well written and let me tell you, the ROCK. Their new ep is full of great tunes. The one thing that seperates this band from others is their giving, they seem to always want to help out with charities. If you feel like rockin out and want to hear some great stuff, you need to check this band out.
The high energy live shows led to Kittenhead receiving rave reviews from TheLosAngelesBeat.com, Reno Tonight Magazine, and airplay on various Internet radio stations across the country, including Stench Radio.

ACDC: New Album On The Way...
Rumours have been swirling since August last year, when estranged members Brian Johnson and Phil Rudd were photographed together outside the Vancouver studio where AC/DC recorded their last three records. Nothing had been heard since then until late last month, when US band Terrorizer said they had bumped into Johnson at an airport, with the vocalist reportedly admitting to them that he was back in the lineup.
Now, on his podcast, Trunk says that while at the recent NAMM Show in Anaheim, he was told the album is done – and it features some material recorded by the late Malcolm Young. Trunk says: “I have a source that will remain nameless, but a very, very, very well-placed, reliable source regarding AC/DC. “He told me, to his knowledge, the album is done, that they went to that studio in Canada and made this record and what people speculated on – that these were riffs and ideas and is more of a tribute to Malcolm Young – is true, that Malcolm had a bunch of stuff recorded that they worked off of and incorporated into the record.
“This is a unity thing – to come together and put out some of Malcolm’s music and celebrate AC/DC." Trunk adds: “This source also told me that he doesn’t know what they’re going to do with this record, when or how it’s going to come out and, as far as he was aware – and he would know – there’s no plans for live shows. “He didn’t tell me anything about Axl or who’s on it.” The rummours regarding no live shows appears to be backed up by former Guns N’ Roses manager Alan Niven who, according to the Appetite For Distortion podcast (via Alternative Nation) says: “I’m not sure that Brian, that his condition, is going to let him tour.
That is the rumour I’ve heard. “They can record together but he may not tour with them so Axl/DC may well be an entity into next year, who knows?” Johnson was forced to stop touring with AC/DC in 2016 under the threat of permanent deafness but has since worked with audio experts Asius on a solution to his hearing problems, with Beano taking to the stage following his departure from AC/DC with Muse, Paul Rodgers and Mick Fleetwood.

A Band That Just Plain Rocks!
Global Affront was formed in 2009 in the San Francisco Bay Area by Eric Wellington and Rico Colley. They began by playing Nirvana, Sex Pistols and Green Day covers, but were inspired to write original material in response to the 2009 Oakland BART shooting and the riots that followed.
After recording and releasing their debut (self-titled) EP in 2011, they started to build a following and were booked to play venues such as the legendary Continental Club in Oakland and The DNA Lounge in San Francisco. The band’s song lyrics, while always based in solid punk angst, began to evolve and incorporate themes of social and political injustice. In 2012, Colley and Wellington recruited Shane Hunt-Dussé as their bassist and the band recorded their second EP, "Another Fucking Global Affront EP."
The EP was released during the finals of the 2012 San Francisco Battle of the Bands, where Global Affront beat out more than 100 bands to take first prize. In early 2013, Global Affront teamed up with SF Suicide Prevention and instituted an annual benefit concert with all proceeds going to this important cause. In the summer of 2013, Global Affront set out on their first cross country tour, hitting world-famous spots like 924 Gilman in Berkeley, Whisky A Go-Go in Los Angeles, Sullivan Hall in New York City, and others. Global Affront will release its debut full-length album, "It's All Downhill From Here," in 2014.
This band has some very good lyrics along with a smooth swag style that will have you bangin your head and singing along, they rock out with every song at the shows and will leave you wanting more. This band has some great tunes like "Revalution" & "You're A Lie" that hit the rockin spot for sure.
Other songs like "Make Way" show the bands complete style with great bass and drums. The songs are classy and have a fast paced rythem and a shocking vocalist.
