POISON IDEA (1982-1989)

BIRUSHANAH at Gilman 2008

BIRUSHANAH is an experimental metal band from Osaka, Japan that UGZ Presents had the pleasure of working with at 924 Gilman in 2008. The band was brought to our attention first by Carl Auge, who was playing in DRAIN THE SKY at the time. Most of the credit for the experimental nature of this bill definitely goes to Nathan Carson from Nanotear Booking.

DARK CASTLE at Gilman 2011

Here's a song from Florida's DARK CASTLE, who co-headlined one of the best bills we've ever had a hand in putting together. All of the bands were so good, from WORM OUROBOROS to DISPIRIT to YOB. It was also UGZ Presents first show at 924 Gilman in over a year.
