Feral Ohms, Birth Defects (LA), Very Paranoia (members of Hot Lunch, Annihilation Time) at the Ivy Room


FERAL OHMS is a power trio from Oakland, CA. Focused on scuzz, primitive, outcast and punk rock and roll. It's loud.


THE BIRTH DEFECTS features former Bleached drummer Jon Safley and Petey Dammit of Thee Oh Sees backing local songwriter and bartender Jason Finazzo. Their debut album, First 8 Mistakes, was released in July via Nathan Williams of Wavves’ label Ghost Ramp and was produced by Ty Segall himself.

The Birth Defects’ latest single, “Bad Shit” lives up to what one might expect from the roster: greasy garage rock with hard hitting riffs. For two minutes, the band devolves into a distortion fueled ecstasy with machine gun drums. Finazzo snarls like a hardcore titan. It’s the sound of pure impulse with each member throwing aside inhibition with their respective instruments.” - Consequence of Sound


VERY PARANOIA is a San Francisco unit operated by four veterans of the Psychic Wars. This band embodies what is, and will always be, crude, raw mechanical violence. Its deafening sound has been shaped by the cult-artists and underground characters found in the multiple sub-genres that have caused hearing loss throughout the history of rock ‘n’ roll.
