Lee’s Palace Presents
MXPX
Zebrahead, Allister, Survay Says!

If there’s one thing that can be said about Bremerton stalwarts MxPx, it’s that the perils of being career musicians will never outweigh the joy they’ve found in truly doing what they love, because no matter how many pitfalls are thrown in their path, “There is a song in there somewhere,” says lead vocalist/bassist Mike Herrera. Plans Within Plans, the trio’s ninth studio record, was released in 2012.

MxPx had not released a full-length album in five years (2007′s Secret Weapon), and through those times, the band had endured their fair share of tribulations. Whether it was identity theft, credit card fraud, outrunning muggers in foreign countries, constant van breakdowns, accumulating debt in an attempt to fund tours the list could go on.

Zebrahead
Initially it was hard for the five young musicians from Orange County to get Noticed. Zebrahead had served their apprenticeship in the O.C. punk scene, but perceived a way ahead that didn’t toe the line. Or jump on the bandwagon either.

The band came together over the summer of 1996, five young musicians from La Habra, who had all been aware of each other in the same high school without ever being actually acquainted, found themselves in separate bands using the same warehouse as a rehearsal site.

Inevitably practice would run-over, or somebody would turn up late, and in a gradual process the five found themselves jamming in ones and twos to kill time downtime, until finally all five put in one faithful session together. The results were electric, a realization that they shared the same ideas… and the same lack of excitement about the bands they were currently part of.

Allister
Allister is a four piece pop punk band based out of Chicago, IL formed in 1996 consisting of members Tim Rogner, Scott Murphy, Kyle Lewis, and Mike Leverence. They were one of the first bands signed to Drive Thru Records and worked with the label

Through many transformations and label deals with MCA, Geffen, and Sanctuary. They have released 5 full length studio albums, 1 EP and 2 seven inches. They have played thousands of shows across dozens of countries touring with some of the largest bands/ festivals in their scene.

Survay Says!
Survay Says! Is a 6-piece pop punk/ska band from New Jersey. Averaging 150+ shows a year for the past 3 years, Survay Says! Blends horn-driven ska music with a hard hitting and quick, catchy pop punk sound.

An energetic and entertaining live show and a strong work ethic set this band apart from the rest. Without the help of agents or managers, the band amassed 208 total shows played in North America in 2013, including a 3+ week tour supporting Big D & The Kids Table (SideOneDummy Records) and Red City Radio (Paper + Plastick Records) that took them to their first appearance at Fest in Gainesville, FL and Pre-Fest in Tampa, FL.
