Hot Snakes

When it comes to San Diego rock alumni, Hot Snakes has the pedigree of a prize-winning showdog. The band is a beast birthed from the loins of SD groups such as Rocket From the Crypt, Drive Like Jehu, Tanner, Pitchfork, and Clikitat Ikatowi. And whereas some of those bands are still kicking, Hot Snakes exists as a bastard child of a time when independent music was driving old Econoline vans, sleeping on floors, and being pissed at the world but still optimistic enough to think a few chords and screams could make a difference. Deceptively simple, Hot Snakes is a chaotic mess of screaming and kicking; a punk-rock mash of piss and vitriol.
