Artist You Should Know: Wallflower

The Fresno BeeFebruary 19, 2014 

The 28 bus line runs south through Fresno into Chinatown, home base for the hardcore noise punk band Wallflower. This is information the band thinks is worth sharing. Wallflower plays loud and fast and may be the most aggressive band in the Friendcore scene, a loose collection of artists and musicians who congregate and/or reside in Chinatown. The band hosts an all-ages show 8 p.m. Friday at the C.A.F.E. Infoshop, 935 F St., with San Francisco's Wild Moth and Oakland's Nervous.

The basics: Female-fronted hardcore band. Fast-paced and spastic. Has been playing for close to two years.

Affiliated: Part of the Friendcore scene, a loose collection of artists and musicians who perform at several DIY venues in Chinatown.

Releases: Four-song demo, available for free at, or on tape from Dark Raids. The "Friendcore to the Endcore" compilation, available at or on tape through Kerchow! Records.
