Yellowdogs
The Yellow Dogs formed back in Tehran, Iran in 2006, and are one of the youngest Iranian rock bands out there. The social restrictions in Tehran and the restrictions imposed by the Iranian government forced them underground, and to build their own tiny bohemian practicing room -the "Sagdooni-by their own hands on the rooftop of their drummer Sina's house. SAGDOONI (farsi for kennel) was where they shaped their own style of independent music. As the Iranian environment cracked down on underground music, they continued making and playing music in their tiny abode shut off from the outside world.

Yellow Dogs were one of the main subjects of the award winning (Cannes & Sao Paulo International film festivals) film, "No One Knows about Persian Cats" - who tells the stories of the underground music scene in Iran. Since their move to the USA one year ago, they have played numerous shows in NYC (including an ongoing monthly gallery/loft party), gone on a national tour, showcased at SXSW and CMJ, recorded an EP "In the Kennel" with producer, Keith Souza (The Battles, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) - which we will be releasing in spring 2011.

"My God--the Yellow Dogs are brilliant." -The Huffington Post

"Yellow Dogs may be from Iran, but they're a badass, Gang of Four-influenced punk band with dancefloor-moving songs."-SPIN

"Yellow Dogs' illegal performances have served to inspire universally human and simplistically humble goals."-AOL/Spinner
