Welcome to the Hideout!

The GaragePunk Hideout is a low-budget social networking site for fans of raw, wild, primitive, untamed rock 'n' roll of various styles (including, obviously, garage rock and garage punk). debuted on the Internet back on June 16, 2001 and has been going strong ever since. The Hideout serves as a place to interact with other rock'n'roll freaks just like yourself, share music of your own, as well as post and share videos, photos, events, classified ads, etc. Plus, for bands and labels, this is a great place to promote your stuff to an audience that obviously already loves it, otherwise they wouldn't be here! So, in that regard, it's kind of like a MySpace or Facebook for REAL rock'n'rollers... only better because you won't encounter a bunch of scammers here trying to access your account with phishing schemes and other underhanded bullshit like psychological experiments, data mining, selling your browsing history to advertisers, and on and on and on) that you see happening on Facebook, Google, etc. So we hope you like it here and that you plan on spending some time taking advantage of everything the site has to offer. Feel free to contribute to some discussions in the Forums, add some shows, garage fests, parties, or whatever to the Events section, post a blog on your page, etc. Oh, and be sure and invite your friends, too.
