The Ataris are an amazing band from santa barbara, california that have been rocking the indie scene for years now, but with the release of 'so long astoria' they have broken through to mainstream and are finally getting the recognition they deserve. with the constant air play of 'in this diary' they are becoming one of the hottest musical acts this year. they are even scheduled to be a headliner on this years van's warped tour. i'm making it a point to check them out this summer and i hope you all will too.

*Band line up*
kris roe - lead vocals/guitar
mike davenport - bass/vocals
john collura - guitar/vocals
chris "kid" knapp - drums

coming soon!
