Featured Artists

th_3gtpromopic_hiresTHIRD GRADE TEACHER

Third Grade Teacher is a  bit lo-fi like Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, yet thick and meaty like early Who or Zeppelin. Sabrina has the swagger of Patty Smith, the growl of Courtney Love and the psychosis of Linda Blair in the Exorcist.




Santa Barbara’s Munkafust dishes up an alternative, blues-based rock, with plenty of hooks and a funky undertone for it all.
