|A 5-piece band from the East San Gabriel Valley, Infected has been playing straight-up punk rock since 1999. Their sound has frequently been described as "old school" -- aggressive, powerful riffs and throaty, screaming vocals, with no pop bullshit. Comparisons to specific bands are few and far-between, but GG Allin, Black Flag, and the Germs come close to the mark. Their lyrics run the gamut from political, to comical, to just plain rude. Infected plays clubs and backyards all over Southern California and beyond. For booking, e-mail or call (626) 477-0130.
