To put it simply: The Giraffes are what great rock ‘n’ roll forgot it was. They’re incomparable on CD, and in-your-face The Giraffes live shows deliver time after time, even if you’ve seen them over and over again. The show is dangerous, comical, sinister, raunchy, and over the top all at once – they’ll impress you technically while blowing out your ears, sharing cigs, whiskey, and beer, and of course, truly entertaining you in every sense of the word.

A front row seat at a Giraffes show meant getting caught in a beer rainstorm, as the band and audience members alike went flying into the crowd with wild abandon. Beer and bottles of Jameson were passed. Aaron made a noose out of the mic cord, wrapped it around his neck and gave it to the crowd to choke him while he forced lyrics past his collapsing trachea. A Giraffes performance is a spectacle you will never forget

Bullet Proof Hearts is a band born out of desire. These four talented musicians have come together from a variety of influences converging on a single passion, and this passion is what makes the music they create extraordinary, singular, and simultaneously relevant, the logical progression rock ‘n’ roll sorely needs at this pause in music, during this painful evolution, during this silence and moment of mania. The passion that knits the sounds and persons of Bullet Proof Hearts together—the je ne se quoi if you will—is a deep and encyclopedic knowledge (understanding?) of the music that came before them, technical know how, and, most significantly, an obvious need to make music and say the things that need to be said.

Bullet Proof Hearts has played with such bands as T.S.O.L., Supersuckers, Cheetah Chrome, The Humpers, Rikk Agnew, The Magnolias, and many others.
Straight from the pits of the north side of omaha nebraska comes a hardcore punk band that will blast your face off to the bone.
