In 2017, punk rock pioneers, the Dead Boys, celebrated the 40th anniversary of their landmark first album Young, Loud and Snotty with a worldwide tour and special re-recording of the record.
Formed in Cleveland in 1976, the Dead Boys were one of the first American acts to combine the proto-punk fervor of bands like the Stooges and the New York Dolls with a new level of intense energy. Their 1977 debut LP was a pivotal album in the birth of hardcore punk and produced one of the first great punk anthems, “Sonic Reducer." After one more album, the band split in 1979. They reunited for a few gigs in the 80s, but following the death of lead vocalist Stiv Bators in 1990, the band members went their separate ways except for two brief reunions in 2004 and 2005. The return of the Dead Boys began with guitarist Cheetah Chrome.
“I've had my solo band for the last ten years, and Dead Boys songs have always been included in my shows and over time the right mix of people came together to pull off and at times enhance the Dead Boys sound. With the 40th anniversary of the Dead Boys on the horizon and a solid band that could interpret and deliver the performance and sound needed to maintain the authenticity of the Dead Boys, I reached out to Johnny Blitz about an anniversary tour and he said 'yes' and we began the journey of what would become Still Snotty.

Residuels
Philly’s Residuels aren’t ashamed to play big, dumb rock n’ roll. They’ve got a stripped-down, 70’s punk vibe but whip out extended improvisations without coming off like assholes… think MC5 without the speeches or the afros. In virtually no time this power-trio has played all over the continent with bands like THEE OH SEES, BLACK LIPS, THE SONICS, DESTRUCTION UNIT + THE SPITS and made IGGY POP a fan with their cover of STOOGES’ “I Got A Right”
The Robotrippers
The Robotrippers
"For years, the Robotrippers have been instantly recognizable not just for their iconic sound, but for predicting the future of Rock n' Roll. Strong, powerful, and majestic, they're also sleek, lithe and decidedly athletic. Their abstemious grooves and coruscant aspect capture stares and hearts. They slip through the wind with quiet ease, yet stand out in any crowd. In fact, they stand above."
