Gestapo Khazi is a lo-fi whirlwind of hard-driving rhythms, haunting guitar riffs and punchy punk rock vocals. The sound that emanates from this fierce foursome manage to simultaneously lift you up and blow you over with thrashing, reverb-saturated songs and an "eff you" attitude that hearkens back to the good old days of punk rock. A local favorite on the Long Beach scene, Gestapo Khazi continues to build fans and send them into frenzied fits with their electrifying stage performances and enrapturing melodies. Drawing influence anywhere from surf instrumentals to ruckus rockabilly tunes, these guys are sure to move you and if they don't, the rowdy crowd is likely to do it for them.
