“San Diego’s the Peppermints — recently signed to Animal Collective’s Paw Tracks label — bring “experimental barfy trash-rock” to the mix, fashioning terse, spazzy songs about everything from grapefruit to conservative Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum.” - Flavorpill.com

[ S.T.R.E.E.T.S. ] aka Skating Totally Rules, Everything Else Totally Sucks
“Vancouver’s S.T.R.E.E.T.S. (Skating Totally Rules, Everything Else Totally Sucks) re-ignite the usefulness of long-forgotten adjectives like “rad” and “gnarly” with their fierce, cocky brand of skate-thrash. Songs like “Too Fast to Powerslide” and “Shred Back the Night” exemplify the band’s shout-chorus vocals, monstrous guitar licks, and thrilling beats.” - Flavorpill.com

“Blondie thru a buzzsaw!! the Supremes meets Drunks with Guns, or Shop Assistants meets Live Skull - you get the idea..” - Terre T, WFMU
“Mob Stereo = The Raincoats + Miss TK and the Revenge + Teengenerate + Cub This is super sloppy, super simple and super garage. The female vocals are dreamy and light atop the fuzz and pounding, and the effect is basically lovely..” - Slugmag

[ KIM & MATT ] aka MATT & KIM
if you’ve attended any previous Japanther performance - or most any show I’ve put on for that matter - then Kim & Matt will be two familiar faces. Two accomplished visual artists as well as an awesome (as well as perennial) rock n punk duo, spactic spazz out drums and fĂșckin’ awesome keyboard and vocals. Matt plays (played?) in Amanda Noa as well.

Australian co-ed three piece (x Sea Scouts) rock out with pounding drums and guitar / bass riffing. Like a early Teenage Fanclub tinged Superchuck with punk rawk energy.
