Vans House Parties is a Wrap!
Watch the Highlights

Red Hare

news



Red Hare grew out of the ashes of DC hardcore band Swiz, and they’re serving as a pretty killer reminder of what good ol’ hardcore is all about. It’s got this mayhem/throwing your body around a sweaty room kind of feel. Get yourself all riled up for their Vans House Parties set with a listen to the track “Horace.”

Swearin'

news

Swearin’ are the kind of band that are on the verge of overtaking everyone’s stereo. They’re a little bit lo-fi, a little bit pop-punk, and sound like your friend’s band rocking out in their living room, but with a little more edge. Whatever it is, we like it. Also, you can pick up their full-length on cassette, because that’s all the rage these days (and hey, it’s only $5).

If You Give a Band Two Drummers...

news

In case turning 30 wasn't enough for The Melvins, they went and owned last night's Vans House Parties with an explosion of drums, two-fold. We were stoked to finally have Baroness hit the stage too, alongside some good ol' southern rock from Honky.

Honky

If you were expecting honky tonks and country music, Honky have ya fooled all right. Think grungy bars and monster trucks and things of that sort. Straight up dirty Texas rock. P.S. You can listen to a whole lot more on SoundCloud.

The Melvins

news

Not many bands can say they’re still rockin’ out at 30 years, but The Melvins are doing just that. We’re helping them blow out the candles as they hit up the House of Vans for part of their 30th Anniversary Tour this year. Check out the new track “Dr. Mule” that the guys just released last month.

Baroness

news

Baroness have a sound that’s big and heavy and just begs for a turntable needle. Lucky for all of us, they just released the four-track album Live From Maida Vale, and it comes on some pretty snazzy looking gold and black vinyl. Time to start digging out your parents’ record player. Get a lil' preview on SoundCloud.
