These are a few videos of some smaller bands I have enjoyed seeing live in the past few years.
I saw these guys play when they were still in highschool and was blown away. They were a part of what was called the AMAR Collective with bands Naima Earth and Not The Government for a while. I don't know where they are now.
I had the fortune of hosting these two at a house show in 2008. Total sweethearts. Punk as fuck. Video by LA art champion Vim Crony.
I'm pretty sure this band is going to blow up eventually. Notice Brian from Anus Kings as the skeleton boy. Again, video by Vim Crony (shot at The Smell).
