“The Blind Shake is at once spacey, primitive futuristic, and brutal: a kind of backyard extraterrestrial minimal surf-punk party. One guitar, one baritone guitar, a fuckload of reverb, and a drummer who deserves an Olympic medal.” –SF Weekly
Fronted by brothers Jim and Mike Blaha, with friend Dave Roper on drums, the trio have been tunneling through the underground since before telephones could talk. Having six full length albums to their credit, several singles, three collaborations with psych legend Michael Yonkers and another with down-stroke warrior John Reis, the band continues to push the sliding scale between catchy punk songs and pitch red noise. 
They have recently toured with Swami John Reis, Thee Oh Sees, as well as headlined US/Canadian tours. In addition to being selected by Drive Like Jehu to play ATP Festival in the UK this April, the band has played Sled Island Festival in Calgary, Gonerfest, SXSW, and many other festivals. They have also provided support for Rocket From the Crypt, Spiritualized, The Spits, No Bunny, The Urinals, Red Cross, A Frames, and Mike Watt.
