About The Dirty Panties
The Dirty Panties officially formed in 2001. Like most great ideas, the concept of The Dirty Panties was born at a New York City bar, in a drunken stupor, and had a history even before it had instruments. After moving to Vegas, creating a solid local following and undergoing a few personnel changes, The Dirty Panties solidified their line-up with founding member, Barbara Lenox, on guitar; lead singer, Melanie Ash; Michelle “Lil’ Moe” Meyer on bass; and Kayley “Animal” Malcolm on drums. Through extensive touring throughout the Southwest, the Dirty Panties have earned the reputation as a “must see” act and become iconic in Las Vegas and beyond.

About Surrounded By Thieves
Formed in 2010, SBT, whose members include Brandon Buck on lead vocals and guitar, Andy Harrison on guitar and vocals, Cody Leavitt on bass and vocals, and Rich Castro on drums, unleash politically driven and personally motivated punk rock that embraces the roughneck, punching and kicking style that has somehow been lost in today’s pop-dominated world, and music fans around Nevada have responded to the high energy sets that have made the band driving force in the local scene.
