Violent Affair
Violent Affair
Bomb City, 2013… Fighting Red State prejudice and championing free speech, Violent Affair has been stoking the flames of rebellion since 2009. These Oklahoma Street Punks prove that real, unadulterated punk rock is still thriving in the heartland. This 5 piece faction of seasoned musicians consists of former members of The Rippers, The Violence, The Costellos and many more. Violent Affair is Dave on lead vocals, Jesse on 1st guitar, Domenic on 2nd guitar, Zach on bass, and Ryan on drums.
The band debuted their self released E.P entitled Armageddon in 2009, and were quickly scooped up by German label Razorblade, who subsequently released the bands debut full length "Stand Trial" in 2010. At a time when spiky jacketed, mohawked punk rock was becoming a dying breed, Violent Affair stepped up to the challenge of carrying on the torch and sold over 3000 copies of "Stand Trial" (mostly in Germany alone).

The band has toured the states numerous times, and has shared stages with the likes of The Casualties, Career Soldiers, Monster Squad, The Scarred, SS Kalliert, Street Dogs, Krum Bums and way too many more to mention. 2012 brought the band to Jailhouse Records attention after owner David, pulled out an old copy of Stand Trial he was sent years before and had never bothered to open. Immediately upon listening, he contacted the band and soon signed them for a 3 album deal. Within months, Jailhouse released the well received and first new V/A material in 2 years, "Call To Arms".

Violent Affair has finished recording for their first full length on Jailhouse Records (scheduled for September 10th), and will be touring throughout summer/fall in support.

The Virgin Whores
The Virgin Whores
Simple. Rocking. Raw. Virgin Whores hit the stage with a brick wall of sound, reminiscent of old school punk/hardcore. Formed in the summer of 2003 after collaborating for a tribute to Joe Strummer, the Virgin Whores have torn up stages like Triple Rock, Hairy Mary's, 1st Avenue, Turf Club, Uptown Bar and many others across the midwest. With scathing lyrics and commanding stage presence, the Virgin Whores have performed with The Germs, Krum Bums, The Briggs, Angel City Outcasts, Everybody's Out, The Dragons, The Effigies, The Arrivals, Wednesday Night Heroes, as well as Minneapolis heavyweights such as Dillinger Four, EightySixed, A-Bomb Nation, Corpse Show Creeps, and many others.
