It’s time once again for the Top 3 Videos! The best of the Top 3 Indies Band videos for June 11, 2016! Welcome!
Kicking ass at #3 this week is a punk rock foursome from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn called, “The So So Glos.” This band was introduced to us by alert music curator Kona Cindy who has her ear on the pulse of the hot new sounds. The So So Glos have been around since 1991. Their webpage says: “The So So Glos began in 1991 when brothers Alex Levine & Ryan Levine met Zach Staggers in kindergarten in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Through a series of divorces and remarriages the three became brothers. They played music before they knew how to under monikers such as SPITT, Urban Eyze & Every Other Weekend. In 2007 Matt Elkin joined the band to complete the family and The So So Glos were born.” 1991!? What? these are old guys? Nope.

At #2 is a Rock And Roll/ Garage Rock outfit from Los Angeles, California who aren’t strangers to our countdown. They are led by Hollywood Starlet, Christa Collins. Wiki says about Christa: “Christa Larson Collins is a Swedish American singer, dancer, model, and song writer. She was a child star in Disney productions (But now she’s a rock’n’roller! Chuckle! – Mike). She is a designer for limited edition hair accessories and feather fascinators and participated in the first season of the American The X Factor.”
