Cruel Curses

Facebook 

Cruel Curses was started in 2015 by Ryen Gerson. Soon after Nick Ehas and Brian Scott helped flesh out the line up. Steve Arfaras joined up in late July '16 and helped finalize the band's line up.

The 4 members all share a love of 70's and 90's style rock n' roll, blues-rock and riff-driven boogie.


During 2016, the band is hitting stages around the Bay Area (and further). They are preparing to record their first EP, due out in early 2017.

Red Light Stare

Facebook

By 2008, Ivan and Dan had played 1,000+ shows all over the country, made music videos, and been featured on multiple national TV shows. But all that was with their old band, Soulfound. After Soulfound broke up, they realized that they still had a lot of rock in them. Sticking to the no-frills alt rock that they loved and inspired by the frustration their post-Soulfound, desk-jockey lifestyles engendered, they formed Redlight Stare as a way to keep themselves out of trouble.

While the core duo of Ivan and Dan is at every show and on all recordings, part of the Redlight Stare Way is to change up their lineup as often as possible. Alumi includes Kyle Headington (Cruel Curses, Lights Out Lemmings), Eric Douthirt (WeakSauce, Rise of Saturn, Boghouse), Bobby Morelli (Drew Street Mary) and Ryen Gerson (Cruel Curses, Beautiful Corpses). Their thinking? They spent so much time trying to keep a line up together in their old band, they should it might be fun to change things up as often as possible. Open relationship, anyone?

The band made it's debut on the Mohawk Bomb Records compilation, No Lip Vol. 2, with the song "Hitmachine". They followed up with their 7-song debut, "Post Jobcore" in 2013 and have been working on new material. But, since they both are slaves to their corporate overlords, progress has been slow.

When not logging in dat overtime, the band dreams of leaving their cubicles behind and making a living writing music for other people since time has stolen away their ability to pose for Tiger Beat. If that doesn't work, they'd be OK being roadies for Queens of the Stone Age, Jack White or Foo Fighters. Boys can dream, can't they?
