Addalemon was formed in the suburbs of Sacramento, California by guitarist and vocalist Cameron Karren, bassist Steven Mitchell, and drummer Billy Mitchell. This punk trio has everything you could ever want from a band. All members are extremely high energy and great musicians. After playing a show with them at the Stork Club, I had their CD on repeat in my car for the last couple of months. They are a force to be reckoned with for sure, and I see nothing but great things to come for this band.
A G E N T
One day I was checking out a list of the top 30 punk bands in the SF Bay Area as rated on Reverbnation, and I came across this new band that I thought was really rad. Out of all the bands I listened to that night, I kept playing their music over and over.I immediately booked a show with A G E N T and they didn’t disappoint me with their hella raw energy and vintage punk style. The band originated in SF but have floated around to different parts of the Bay ever since. Members include Shadi Moussa(Vocals and Guitar) Gabriel Dunne(Bass) and Scotty Bara(Drums). Listen to their tracks and look out for A G E N T in your town!!!
