|Band: The Cost|
Originally called Wet-Nap and formed at a Unitarian youth retreat, the Cost were around for years. Starting out when they were all 14, they grew from sloppy punk rock to powerful screamo in the vein of Dead and Gone with a little hint of Christ on Parade. The addition of Sean McCardle on tenor guitar really filled out their sound on their final album, which was released by lookout records.
|Band: The Criminals|
This snotty punk rock supergroup, know for abusive live shows, had Jesse Luscious (blatz, the Frisk, Gru'ups) as its lead singer.

|Band: California Redemption|
California Redemption (or CaRe) is a hardcore punk band from Thousand Oaks, California, a part of the Nardcore community, and a "major player" in the Ventura County Music scene. Their sound is a mix of hardcore and punk rock; fast guitars and politically minded lyrics fusing with "breakdowns and chanted back-ups, right out of the straightedge hawd caw playbook." Lyrical themes vary from political protests and critical analyses of American society to personal struggles and alienation.
