ABOUT

An Aggressive, Solid, Hard-Hitting, Passionate, and Dedicated Drummer for Bayside Riot! & Tower 7 who is actively and VERY openly against Twitler and his whole goddamned unqualified, self-righteous, tea-bagging, racist, fascist, neo-Nazi-sympathizing administration and divisive, selfish, misogynistic, and idiotic policies and hurtful agendas. This illegitimate President is an embarrassing and disgraceful example of both an American and human being!! Fuck him and his supporters ALL TO HELL and may his time in office be SHORT and his time in prison LONG!!!

Presently, Bayside Riot! finds itself without a dedicated, courageous, politically out-spoken singer #1/guitar player. Would you be interested in auditioning for us? We have only been together since Spring of 2017 so we donâ??t have a lot up on Facebook, but we do have a band profile with pics and videos and we have played some good shows already with similar type bands from around the Bay area, have connections, and lots of opportunities to keep the riot going? Also, you can check out the profiles of myself (J.MikeBonnot) and my bass player/singer #2/best friend in the Bay Area, JP (John Portugeus).
A little about the Bayside Riot!: WE ARE NOT A PARTY BAND LOOKING FOR MAINSTREAM ATTENTION. BAYSIDE RIOT! IS A POLITICAL PUNK BAND THAT PLAYS A LOT OF COVERS BUT ALSO INTENDS ON PLAYING ORIGINALS. WE ARE INTELLIGENTLY PROVOCATIVE AND WE BELIEVE IN SCIENCE, FACTS, EQUAL RIGHTS AND FREEDOM FOR ALL REGARDLESS OF SEXUAL ORIENTATION, GENDER, ETHNICITY, RELIGION, GEOGRAPHIC ORIGIN, RACE, ETC. ETC. ETC. WE ARE COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY THE ANTITHESIS OR TWITLER, HIS CABINET MEMBERS, HIS SUPPORTERS, AND THE (G)RAB (O)UR (P)USSY PARTY. FUTHERMORE, WITH THEIR GROSSLY CORRUPT POWER ON CONGRESS AND OUR PRESIDENT, WE CONSIDER THE NRA A FUCKING DOMESTIC TERROR ORGANIZATION. WE ASPIRE TO CONTINUE THE TRUE PUNK ROCK CULTURE AND LEGACY OF THE 70s and 80s AND ARE GREATLY INFLUENCED BY BANDS LIKE THE RAMONES, DEAD KENNEDYS, BAD BRAINS, THE PLASMATICS, BAD RELIGION, MDC, THE ADOLESCENTS, THE BUZZCOCKS, BLACK FLAG, MINOR THREAT, , FUGAZI, THE DICKS, HUSKER DU, CIRCLE JERKS, IGGY AND THE STOOGES, DEAD BOYS, THE GERMS, 7 SECONDS, FEAR, SEX PISTOLS, DESCENDENTS, OFF!, ETC. ETC. AND MANY FROM THE 90s AND 2000s AS WELLâ??RANCID, GREEN DAY, NOFX, TRASH TALK, AGAINST ME, REFUSED, LAGWAGON, ANTI-FLAG, THE MUFFS, THE DISTILLERS, THE SLITS, CIVET, TILT, OFFSPRING, PANSY DIVISION,TEN FOOT POLE, H2O, D.O.A., NAKED RAYGUN, CRUCIFUCKS, DEGENERATES, THE CASUALTIES, UNSEEN, SUBHUMANS, THE QUEERS, SCREECHING WEASEL, THE REPLACEMENTS; PLUS SOME RAP ARTISTS INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO: BEASTIE BOYS, N.W.A., PUBLIC ENEMY.
