Standoff in the news and on the radio!
The Mercury News

"One of the most promising young garage-rock acts I’ve heard in quite some time hails from the Castro Valley/Livermore area.
The group goes by the name Standoff and, trust me, you’re going to want to hear them.
Standoff boasts a highly contagious single called “We Won't Get Along,” which is a guitar-fueled adrenaline rush that you’ll want to experience again and again.
The song was recorded with producer Diego Cisternas at C Studio in Oakland.
You can find that song and some other cool offerings at www.standoffmusic.com.
Recommended for fans of the Strokes and (early) White Stripes."

That Dude In The Corner
By: Stefan Adcock May 9, 2017
"5:15 pm: As I descend the stairs of The Porch, I hear some heavy-gauge shrieking coming from the main stage and stumble into the middle of Standoff’s set. I’ll be upfront and say it. Lead singer Charli Lockheart was what caught my attention off the bat. Decked out in all black, with flipped over hair that was reminiscent of The Cure, this guy was wailing away in a very Jack White/Wolfmother way. Like he was trying to out-do all other singer like him. And he was succeeding. Backed by Mitch Avery on keys, Julius Ceasar on lead guitar, Dallas Winfield on bass, and Grey Janowski on drums, these dude threw down their own blend of Black Keys and Black Sabbath-ish blues rock that was a sight for sore eyes."
