Nina Diaz has been hailed by NPR as “one of the two or three most
exciting, scary-good vocalists in rock today.” Nina Diaz entered the music
business at a young age and is the front person for the band Girl in a
Coma. At age 17, Nina and the band performed at New York’s Knitting
Factory as part of a taping for a television show. Joan Jett was in
attendance and was so impressed, that she signed GIAC to her label,
Blackheart Records, on the spot. The band’s 2007 debut album, Both
Before I’m Gone, was a critical hit with raves from Alternative Press
Magazine, the LA Weekly, Bust magazine, among many others, with the
album reaching No. 23 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and No. 21 on
iTunes. Girl in a Coma went on to release three more albums and toured
the world opening for bands such as Sia, Smashing Pumpkins, Morrissey,
Tegan and Sara, Amanda Palmer and many more. The band’s most recent
album Exits & All the Rest was named to NPR’s 50 Favorite Albums of the
Nina's distinctive voice and powerful live performances attracted
the attention of fans, producers and fellow artists. Nina collaborated
with Tiësto to co-write the dance track, “In Your Mind.” Director
Robert Rodriguez is such a fan of the band that he not only filmed an
impromptu music video when he first saw them perform at SXSW, but also
asked Nina Diaz and the band to compose a song for the climactic fight
scene in his movie, Machete.
Being a public performer at such an early age took a toll and Nina began
finding an outlet as she began writing new material that was all her
own. Nina launched her new solo project with a series of live concerts at
The Belmont in Austin, Texas. On the first night of the residency,
Nina fronted a five-piece band and performed this new material to a sold
out crowd. Since then she has performed to sold out crowds throughout
Texas as well as at Maverick Music Festival, Fiesta de la Flor, The
Austin Music Awards and opening weekend at the Tobin Center for the
Performing Arts. Her backing band, hand-picked by Nina to highlight her
new sound, includes Jorge Gonzalez (drums), Johnny Shrink (keys), Austin
Valentine (bass), and Travis Vela (guitar).
Nina Diaz’s solo debut album is scheduled to be released later this year.
There will be a limited number of ThrowBack Tickets available beginning Thursday, January 19 at 12pm!

Since their inception, during high school in California nearly two decades ago, the Mad Caddies have toured the world countless times delighting fans with their unique blend of reggae, punk, ska and pop, and with their newest album Dirty Rice the Mad Caddies have proven they're just as impassioned and energetic as ever. In many ways the band's first full-length in seven years sees them coming full circle, demonstrating while trends and times have changed, the Mad Caddies' commitment to creating dynamic music has only grown stronger.
Electric Six incorporates a variety of styles, resulting in being termed a "genre-blurring" band. The group's sound has been described as a synthesis of "disco, synth pop, glam, and arena rock," including the falsetto vocals of disco, laden with "rampant solos, be they guitar riffs, synth wails, or strutting drums" that enforce the band's "energetic sound." However, the band members themselves have rejected such genre classifications as "disco-metal" and "disco-punk."[clarification needed]
Critics have termed their lyrics as "disaffected, angry, ironic and lustful", expressing "macho flippancy" and "tongue-in-cheek pomposity". Dick Valentine has estimated that "90 percent of our songs, maybe even higher than 90 percent" are "about absolutely nothing." Songs by Electric Six are often concerned with subjects such as human sexual behavior, masculinity, dancing, hypersexuality, fast food and fire (The band's official biography states that their debut album Fire was so named because they "noticed an abundance of the word fire on this record and...decided to go with it."). Lead singer Dick Valentine had commented on the aforementioned lyrical tendencies in song content with regards to the band's third album:
[...] for the first time, none of the songs have the word "dance" or variation of "dance" in the title. But fear not. We have songs with "drugs" and "girls" and "tonight" and "night" and "louder" and "party" in the title, so we haven't given up on our philosophy just yet.

On a hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico circa 1982, Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidated shanty and into Rock N Roll history. What began as an innocent night of snorting horse tranquilzers in a hotel room with seven members of the village jai alai team went on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live. Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and ill advised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastard children were born. Unable to care for her hungry offspring and concerned that motherhood would seriously interfere with her Tuesday night Karaoke league, Consuela hastily packed the babies into the saddlebags of a burro and sent her children off to America in search of a better life. Against all odds, 14 years later, and nearly dead from dehydration, the burro knelt down to drink from the stagnant waters of the Rio Grande just ouside of Juarez Mexico -mere yards from the U.S. border. With one fleeting burst of energy the brothers Espinoza cinco climbed from their leather restraints and scampered the vast reaches of the river, collapsing onto the sweet amber hue of American soil. As if by destiny, lodged in the sand beneath their tanned faces was a record sleeve upon which were the words "PARANOID" and "BLACK SABBATH". For many years to follow, this definitive black metal album served not only as a teacher and a mentor..but also as a friend. From these bleak and humble beginnings grew the seed that would eventually be the band we know today. Often referred to as the greatest heavy metal band to ever live..always referred to as...METALACHI.
HEADCAT : Slim Jim Phantom (Stray Cats), Danny B Harvey (Rockats) & David Vincent (Morbid Angel) : A Celebration of Lemmy and Rock'n'roll
Lemmy (Motörhead), Slim Jim Phantom (The Stray Cats) and rockabilly legend Danny B. Harvey (Rockats) teamed up in 1999 to create a high-energy, take no prisoners combo to remind the world how Rock'n'Roll was supposed to f*ckin sound. For over 16 years Headcaf continued doing just that to the accolades of fans worldwide. Since Lemmy's untimely passing in 2015 Slim Jim and Danny B. have put Headcat on hold out of respect for their fallen band mate and have waited until the appropriate time to start performing again.
In Dec 2016 Slim Jim & Danny B. we're asked to perform as Headcat in Berlin with two of Lemmy's dearest friends Nina C. Alice and Jim Voxx from the band Skew Siskin. That show was a gigantic success and the ensuing outcry for more Headcat shows from fans worldwide was too loud for Slim Jim and Danny B. to ignore. So In early 2017 Slim Jim and Danny B went into the studio with former Morbid Angel frontman and bassist, David Vincent, to record a few songs for future release. The sessions went so well and the new sound of Headcat, with David's deep baritone voice and thunderous bass playing, convinced Slim Jim and Danny B. they had to continue Headcat with David Vincent as vocalist and bassist. Rockabilly or Death Metal, as Headcat as been saying all along, it doesn't matter it's all Rock'n'roll.
So forget all those rock posers, who have nothing new to say, passing themselves off as the real thing. When it come to real Rock'n'Roll these three guys have lived it, breathed it, bled it and have set the lifestyle example that all you rebels, rockers and outcasts should strive to follow……… without further ado we bring you HeadCat!

“... a storyteller of the highest calibre...”
“... ‘Mississippi Queen’ was, of course, a highlight, but seldom have I seen a drummer dominate a set with such panache, and such deft use of the high hat and cowbell. There’s just not enough in rock these days. A true ‘giant of rock’.”

He also had his own radio show, Under the Rock, in Canada, has published an anecdotal road-stories book, Stick it! and has his one-man show, The Best Seat in the House, a humorous autobiographical production that combines storytelling and music.
