About This Event

Moe's Alley presents Italian rockers Giuda with special guests Jonny Manak and The Depressives!

Wednesday, August 21st
Doors: 7pm / Show: 8pm
$20 in advance / $25 day of the show

Giuda is a five-piece band from Rome, Italy, that play an air-punching mix of anthemic ‘70s rock hooks delivered with the brutal force of early UK punk, all interpreted in a contemporary and original way with relevance for today’s discerning listener.

Fuelled by the sounds of bands like Slade, Glitter Band, Hector, Third World War and Slaughter & The Dogs, Giuda offer fresh, powerful rock and roll with attitude in spades.

Their debut album “Racey Roller”, famously described by Robin Wills (The Barracudas) as, “Cock Sparrer twinned with the Equals”, was graced with iconic cover art courtesy of French designer and glam fanatic

Tony CrazeeKid, and quickly became an underground sensation. Highly praised by publications as diverse as Mojo, The Guardian, Uncut, Rolling Stone, Vice (album of the year) and Maximum Rock’n’Roll, the album remains a true cult classic and an inspiration to the numerous hordes of bovver rockers currently following in Giuda’s wake.

From their debut album release up until the present day, the band has completed several European tours and five USA/North American tours, playing around 400 gigs in total, including triumphant appearances at many major festivals such as Rebellion (Blackpool, UK), PunkRock Bowling (Las Vegas, USA) and Hell Fest (France).

Bred and spread from San Jose, CA, veteran garage punk n roll outfit Jonny Manak and The Depressives have been churning out high energy rock and roll goodness since 2007. Front man Jonny Manak (The Resistoleros, The Cliftons, Clay Wheels, Fang, Texas Thieves) with his merry band of Depressives (longtime bassist Neil “eNDY” Young and drummer Chris Estep) deliver a blistering rapid fire set of 2 minute bangers and power surf instrumentals. The trio has released 6 LPs and 2 singles. Another LP and single are set for release later in 2024.
