Friday night we were treated to a night of great music. It started off with an acoustic set by  Dead Frets, then onto a fantastic indie punk set by Divided Heaven and then a spectacular set by Travis Hayes and the Young Daze. Singer/songwriter Travis Hayes. The night ended on a true to DNA form, old school punk rock set by toyGuitar.

toyGuitar from San Francisco is truly a hidden treasure. I believe they might be fairly new, which I am hoping since my lack of unfamiliarity with this awesome band. They came out and performed an energetic quick paced set that fueled the Above DNA room into a frenzied mosh/dance mayhem. One thing is for sure, when they are performing you can’t stand still unless you possibly are braindead. They just infect the crowd with their intense energy and it is like a shot of adrenaline to the heart, rejuvenating all the souls in the room. Jack on vocals is grabs a hold of you with his soulful singing, Rosie is fierce on her drums and yet she makes it look so easy with a smile. Miles on guitar delivered catchy hooks and Paul was slamming that bass away. Love the energy of these four and they work really well together to deliver a solid set. They reminded me of a Clash/Ramones but in no way, an imitation, toyGuitar has their own unique style that is deserving of your attention. Check out the photos from the set by our Rockin Ryan:

Here are some videos from their set which will get you begging to come on out to their next show:

Make sure to visit their social media sites so you can stay up to date on their latest news. If you get to a show, be sure to pick up the 7″ vinyl which we have been playing on repeat since Friday!
