From the outskirts of East Los Angeles come EAST OF THE RIVER. A young 4 piece garage rock band who have captured the attention of many with their fierce and formidable live performances. Channeling from the likes of Roy Orbison, Echo and the Bunnymen and the Sonics their sound is a blend of dark garage-surf rock which is the fuel to their unique, progressive and expansive sound.
