Fourbanger CD Release Party

Fourbanger CD Release Party

Captain Squeegee, No Gimmick, The Linecutters

Sat September 15

7:00 pm


This event is all ages

Powerful pop-punk baked like a casserole of tasty riffs and harmonious vocals in the unflinching heat of Mesa, Arizona. Fourbanger formed and took shape in the afterglow of the 90s punk rock revival, being influenced by bands like Strung Out, 88 Fingers Louie, Lagwagon, and No Use for a Name. They became a staple in local scene, sharing the stage with many of their musical heroes and up-and coming local acts. Having taken some time away to focus on other pursuits, they have grown a little wiser and a little grayer, but the constant call of rock could not be denied forever. They have emerged from their hibernation with some fresh new songs and are ready to rock the valley again!
Captain Squeegee
Captain Squeegee
Captain Squeegee is a Progressive Rock band from Mesa, Arizona. Their songs cover content from a wide range of topics, including: conspiracies, aliens, love, and the paranormal.
No Gimmick
Ripping off 90s punk rock since the 90s.

No Gimmick's sound is purposely hard to define, though some say they sound like the caffeinated bastard child of NOFX and Face to Face. Known for a raucous live performance and described as “flip the bird in your face obnoxious,” this power punk trio has been “rocking crowds into near riots” since 1996.

Hailing from Phoenix Arizona No Gimmick has played countless local shows as well as brief stints in L.A. and Mexico. They’ve shared the stage with Marky Ramone, Nerf Herder, Authority Zero, Masked Intruder, Punk Rock Karaoke, Implants, Guttermouth, CKY, Elway, Pour Habit, Sugarcult, Rufio, Ten Foot Pole, Against All Authority, Mr. T Experience, Jughead’s Revenge, Margate, DC Fallout, Antifreeze, Riddlin' Kids, Civet, Bionic Jive, Stereotyprider, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Fred Green, Trik Turner, Tickertape Parade, Something Corporate, and also played Warped Tour ‘02.

No Gimmick was named “Best Punk Band” by the Arizona Infusion of Music Awards in ’03 and has been featured in punk rock compilations, AZPUNK.comp (Volumes 1, 2 & 4), Precision Punk, Zia Records (2012) and others.

Loss For Words is the sophomore effort to their '02 release One Wop, Two Micks and a Bean -- a parody on NOFX's '92 release that saw airplay on X 103.9’s Ska Punk Show and Local Music Showcase as well as spent some time on Zia Records Top 10 Local Charts.

After numerous line-up changes at the drummer position, the band settled in with Andrew Jones after recording Era of Cowards. Guitarist/singer Johnny had two kids and singer/bassist Josh followed suit with one. The life-changing experiences this group has fought through together has made their music more mature and angrier.

No Gimmick's latest record, Loss For Words was released in February 2011. The trio is currently working on releasing their new EP, Judy in mid 2014.

The band is available for interviews and appearances, please contact us for more information.
