The third Lookout Zoomout will occur live on Sunday March 28 at noon PT / 3pm ET and promises to be another interactive experience with fans from around the world. Tickets are available now.


- Penelope Houston from the Avengers… one of the pioneering women of the first wave of American punk, Houston formed the San Francisco band the Avengers in 1977 before going on to a long and award-winning multidisciplinary career in Europe and America as a solo musician and painter. The Avengers released an album on Lookout in 1999, leading to a rebirth of the band.

- Ted Leo… the explosive and emotive East Coast indie punk mod rocker is most often associated with Lookout‘s “third wave”, from 2001 – 2006. Leo was the label’s last successful signing.

- Dr. Frank from the Mr. T Experience… arguably the architect of the modern pop punk in sound and lyrical style, Dr. Frank and his Berkeley-based band were on Lookout longer than any other artist.

- Mass Giorgini… owner of Sonic Iguana Studio and the producer behind the famed pop punk “Lookout Sound” having worked with Green Day, Screeching Weasel, the Queers. Mass also performed with Common Rider, Squirtgun, and Screeching Weasel.

- John Denery and Chris Imlay from the Hi-Fives, Brent’s TV, and the Ne’er Do Wells… purveyors of low-budget, high-energy, nattily attired thrift shop garage rock, Imlay and Denery were involved in some of Lookout‘s most beloved and charming bands. The guys will be joined by special guests Judy Denery from the Loadies and Virgil Shaw from Brent’s TV.

- Grant Lawrence from the Smugglers… the lead singer of the Vancouver garage rock ‘n’ roll band that was on Lookout from 1995-2005.
