Hailing from El Monte, a sleepy suburban town just east of Los Angeles, Henry Vargas (vocals/guitar), and Jose Corona (drums), draw their sound from the spectrum between the early 2000s New York indie rock and grunge scene to the cumbia and corridos that soundtracked their childhoods. After cycling through an assortment of lineups, mutual friend and bassist Patrick Juarez (bass) expanded their operation. Now a solid three-piece band, the emerging alt-rockers have come a long way from meeting at a local Battle of the Bands, practicing in their garages, and naming themselves after their favorite color and a pun on the word “pair”— a subtle nod to sonic inspirations The White Stripes and The Black Keys.
The Red Pears first got on the map with self-releases “For Today, For Tomorrow, For What Is,” “For What Could’ve Been and We Bring Anything to the Table… Except Tables We Can’t Bring Tables to the Table,” that led to expansive touring and learning the ins-and-outs of being on the road. In 2019, the band delivered their diversely heartfelt EP “Alicia,” named after “Corona” and Vargas’ mothers, that showcased a polished alt-rock sound without sacrificing the band’s roiling, fuzzed-out garage spirit. In 2021, Henry, Jose and Patrick solidified a new, matured era for the band with their album release “You Thought We Left Because The Door Was Open, But We Were Waiting Outside.” The album marked a matured reinvention of their nostalgic indie attitude – as their early sounds and sonic inspirations fused to revive the rebellious spirit of garage rock in fully realized form in the name of friendship, growth and timeless rock ‘n’ roll.

The High Curbs are a staple of the Southern California music scene. The band was formed by Ed Moreno and Aaron Korbe in 2013 as young teens in the suburban landscape known as the Inland Empire. They were joined by Alberto Alvarenga when the band began to tour in 2016. He has remained a pillar to the group ever since. In recent years, the band welcomed Kenny Huerta on bass and Taylor Hecocks of King Shelter on second guitar. The band has put out a massive collection of music throughout the last decade, releasing 3 records, a series of singles, and EPs. The High Curbs have gathered notoriety over song” Want” thanks to Thrasher’s “King of the road”. New record out May 24
