\\\ MANE ///
MANE is a 2-piece of women weaving lush, harsh, deep tones into strange melodies from San Francisco. Featuring harmonies and distorted instruments, we’re a mixture of guitar, bass, electric and live drums.
After touring the US for their debut self-titled 7” release, on Dave Fox’s (of Traditional Fools) label Cut Rate Records, MANE hit the studio to finish new music. Working with engineers Chet JR White (Girls), Dave Fox, and Paul Courte (Brasil), mastered by Cooper Crain (Bitchin’ Bajas), and newly signed to Hellbent Booking, MANE is now looking to unleash their debut, self-produced, full-length record, Alpha Female, on August 5th 2017.
They have shared the stage with Fuzz, The Meatbodies, Vial, CCR Headcleaner, Scraper, Quaaludes, Silver Shadows, Ruby Pins, and countless others, for shows booked by Women's Audio Mission, KUSF, Folk Yeah, Hellbent Booking, and more.

“Introducing the Bay Area’s Mane. Like local heroes Grass Widow to summoning the styles of DIY punk icons of the past & future; Mane lets their hair down with a chord-cutter psychic sound that breaks out of all cages, confines & molds of conformity that caters to a cataclysmic & caustic cotton-candy aesthetic that is all their own.”
—Sjimon Gompers, Impose, “Week in Pop”
“Consider Mane. An upstart San Franciscan trio whose debut EP sets rich vocal harmonies with swathes of saturated guitar to five insistent rock songs, Mane is a churning and restless live unit as well. Every show exhibits some newfound asset, and the ongoing evolution is only matched by growths in chops and presence.
—Sam Lefebvre (Impose, SF Weekly)
“Dark, feverish still quite pop-influenced sparse post punk.”
—Dynamite Hemorrhage (magazine/podcast)
\\\ Gomme ///
Gomme is an all-female post-punk/goth/punk band residing in Paris. Hailing from three different countries, the women of Gomme sing in French and German as well as English. The meanings of the songs range from the frustrations of everyday life to the issues of being a woman in today's society to the feeling of being lost and disconnected as an expatriate in France, something that inevitably brought the band together. They aim to make the connection instead through their music and by being themselves, loudly and unapologetically.
They are influenced by Bauhaus, Sonic Youth, Wire, Kleenex, The Germs, and Xmal Deutschland, among others.
They released their premiere LP on Black Totem Records in April 2017 and are also on French label Et Mon Cul C'est du Tofu and Texas label Yippie Ki Yay. Future plans include an EU tour in September.
