Greg Antista and the Lonely Streets, a fast-rising Southern California rock group, today unveil their debut music video, "Goodnight Ramona." The song is the lead single from next month's Shake, Stomp and Stumble. The album will be issued on LP/CD/DL via Primal Beat Records on May 17. Pre-order HERE. "Goodnight Ramona" will be available digitally tomorrow. 

Produced and directed by Marcela Mariz for Shorebird Productions, "Goodnight Ramona" provides a glimpse of a young Hollywood couple (Anthony Moore and Luna Racy) in the first flush of love. Dancing and intimacy ensue but will their goals prove compatible? 

Coinciding with the video's debut, Greg Antista and the Lonely Streets have announced live dates for April and May. Additional dates will be announced soon:

4/20:  Long Beach, CA - Alex's Bar (opening for Wayne Hancock) / TICKETS 5/01:  Los Angeles, CA - The Mint / TICKETS 5/04:  Tarzana, CA - Maui Sugar Mill / INFO 5/24:  Las Vegas, NV - Bunkhouse Saloon / Punk Rock Bowling / TICKETS

The band's debut album Shake, Stomp and Stumble recalls the sincerity of Johnny Cash and the country-infused, socially conscious anthems of Social Distortion. Its nine party-starting songs are anchored by indelible melodies, heartfelt vocals, powerful musicianship, and a steadfast sense of community. The album was produced and engineered by Paul Miner whose credits include New Found Glory, Thrice, C.J. Ramone, and Lisa Loeb.  Although frontman Greg Antista has known each of his band members for decades, The Lonely Streets have only been in existence for a year, having played their first gig on February 23, 2018 in Huntington Beach, California. The lineup is comprised of Antista (lead vocals, songwriter, guitar), Jessica Kaczmarek (lead guitar, backing vocals, mandolin, piano), Warren Renfrow (bass), and Jorge E. Disguster (drums, backing vocals). The members’ previous group affiliations are extensive: Antista (Joyride, Foxy), Kaczmarek (Busstop Hurricanes, Russell Scott & the Hot Rods, Bourbon Jones), Renfrow (Cadillac Tramps, Manic Hispanic, Final Conflict, and tours with The Adolescents and The Damned, among others), Disguster (Mink Daggers, Mr. Mirainga). 


The joyous, colorful album cover art for Shake, Stomp and Stumble — which depicts a pair of rockabilly skeletons in full swing dancing abandon — was designed by Louis Perez III, the son of the famed Los Lobos songwriter/instrumentalist who shares the same name. The image and logo design evoke the rich Hispanic culture of Southern California, a heritage shared by three members of the Lonely Streets. “Even though the Lonely Streets don’t sing any songs in Spanish, it feels perfectly natural playing with bands that do,” says Antista. “The album art is a great visual expression of our music.”
