Redding

Amber Rindosh
Do It Yourself Promoting. I have been highly influenced by older punk rock bands since i was a teenager. I listen to bands like Social Distortion, The Ramones, Minor Threat, Dead Kennedys, Dropkick Murphys exc. Mostly older hardcore punk rock but i love the mellow stuff also and classic rock as well. I will book any genre though. I don't judge any one for their sex,religion or race or for anything. I love the scene and would like to get more bands here and different stuff not the same old stuff in Redding every show. I am willing to donate my last cent to helping bands and shows. I will do what i can do help the scene and make sure it doesn't just die out. Contact on FB or arindosh [at] yahoo [dot] com
