Coast To Coast: Sacramento, California To Richmond, Virginia

It’s me Nikki Knight, here again to review some bands for Capital Chaos TV. With Spewline Productions, I have had the opportunity, to meet some really great people and bands. I started in Sacramento, California and now I’m here in Richmond Virginia. I have had the opportunity to check out both scenes, so I decided I will start letting both coasts know about up and coming artists from both scenes.

Sacramento is home to many different kinds of music, and punk is huge in the scene. Killer Couture is a great electronic punk band, with a heavy industrial sound and true hardcore vocals and energy. Front man Seth Draven brings high energy and powerful vocals, set to the sound of synthesizers, with Captain Hook laying down on various pieces of metal, creating the chaotic ambiance that makes you want to dance and mosh. Killer Couture has been playing a lot of shows and had one recently with Cory Feldman & The Angels . I watched them grow, as I booked them with Spewline Productions and I am a very proud punk mama. Check out their band camp here of you haven’t heard of them yet. Don’t Miss out!!

Richmond Virginia, like Sacramento has a huge and diverse local music scene, along with a giant art community. Home of Gwar and poet Edgar Allan Poe, the influences you can find are never ending. A few days ago I lucked out and got to see a Toxic Moxie show. They call themselves disco punk and they are awesome as fuck! They have a feel that makes me think of a mixture of TSOL and Bikini Kill. Their vocalist, Sera Stavroula, has a super strong voice and she commands the stage with it. Harley Kordella on synthesizer/bass keeps the melody flowing and had me enchanted the whole entire time. Justin Shear on guitar shredded beautifully as Danny Crawford kept the beat. It was high energy and very engaging. There was not a dull moment. Keep an eye on these guys! Check out their website here page.

From coast to coast and from my old home town to the new; I bring you Awesome bands to put on your gotta see list and gotta playlist. We gotta support our local artists and local scene. Keep reading, there is more to come, when I introduce you next, to more of my favorites.
