    BAYSIDE

    BAYSIDE at THE PRESSROOM with THE MENZINGERS & SORORITY NOISE!

    Bayside fans don’t call their relationship with the band a “Cult” for nothing. After a string of much-adored releases, Bayside has one of the most dedicated fan bases in rock, and the group steadfastly rewards those devotees with the musical salvation they seek. Six albums and more than a decade later, Bayside has never lost touch with that mission and, in fact, they’ve only grown bigger. While veteran bands take breaks and regroup, Bayside haven’t taken that route and instead, soldiered on, building up and growing more and more into themselves… to the point in which they are the most “Bayside” that they have ever been. The fact that their audience has grown is testament to that.

    KHRUANGBIN

    KHRUANGBIN at THE REBEL LOUNGE!

    Taking influence from 1960’s Thai funk – their name literally translates to “Engine Fly” in Thai – Khruangbin is steeped in the bass heavy, psychedelic sound of their inspiration, Tarantino soundtracks and surf-rock cool. The Texan trio is formed of Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald “DJ” Johnson on drums. Ever since their first rehearsals, Khruangbin have recorded at their spiritual home, a remote barn deep in the Texas countryside. The band listened to a lot of different types of music on the long drives out to the country but their favourites were 60s and 70s Thai cassettes gleaned from the cult Monrakplengthai blog and compilations of southeast Asian pop, rock and funk. This had a heavy impact on the direction of the band, the scales they used and the inflection of the melodies; which coupled with the spaciousness of the Texan countryside culminated in Khruangbin forming their exotic, individual sound. The seeds of Khruangbin were sown when Mark and Laura were invited to tour with Ninja Tune’s YPPAH supporting Bonobo across his 2010 American tour. The tour galvanised the two of them to start making music together more seriously, with DJ – he and Mark have played in the same gospel band for years – the natural choice for drums. Sharing their first recordings, Bonobo included Khruangbin’s ‘A Calf Born In Winter’ on his 2013 Late Night Tales compilation. Subsequently signed to Late Night Tales offshoot Night Time Stories, ‘A Calf Born In Winter’ was released as a single in May 2014, four track EP ‘The Infamous Bill’ followed in October, with covers EP ‘History Of Flight’ on Record Store Day 2015. Their debut album ‘The Universe Smiles Upon You’ was released in November 2015 to widespread acclaim. 2016 is set to be an important year for the band and their rising profile with a series of international live dates planned including Festivals in the UK, Europe and US, SXSW and out on the road this May with Father John Misty supporting on his UK and European tour. “Hypnotic, spacious, drifting soul music with a cinematic dreaminess” -The Guardian “A positive energy” – The Independent “Like a Tarantino soundtrack crossed with Curtis Mayfield. In Thailand” – The Telegraph “Intriguing Thai-influenced funk” – Mojo “A sea of sound that’s lovely to get lost in” – The Line Of Best Fit “An imaginative, inventive and sublime debut album” – Stamp The Wax “An outstanding debut” – Future Music

    PERIPHERY - CHON - SIKTH & TOOTHGRINDER at THE PRESSROOM!

With their signature blend of polymetric grooves and soaring melodies, the band continues to push the envelope of modern metal music.

    JAY BRANNAN

    JAY BRANNAN at THE REBEL LOUNGE!

    A Texas native turned New Yorker, Jay Brannan has been writing and performing his own sweet & sad folk songs, tempered with a healthy dose of humor, around the globe since 2006. He also appeared as an actor in John Cameron Mitchell’s indie film sensation Shortbus, in which his song “Soda Shop” was the highest selling song on the film’s soundtrack album (released by Bright Eyes’ Team Love Records). From there, Brannan released a string of albums, all of which topped the iTunes Singer/Songwriter & Billboard Heatseekers charts: goddamned, produced by Will Golden (Meiko, Michelle Branch); In Living Cover, a collection of 2 originals & 7 covers, recorded from a bedroom in his friend Drew Brody’s Brooklyn apartment; and Rob Me Blind, produced by the legendary David Kahne (Regina Spektor, The Bangles, Paul McCartney, Kelly Clarkson, Lana Del Rey, etc.). Brannan’s touring has taken him multiple times around the world, through the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, Norway, Greece, Brazil, South Africa, Israel, and Australia. This international touring is what inspired his 2013 EP release Around the World in 80 Jays, a collection of 9 international cover songs spanning 6 different languages.

    MINER

    MINER at THE REBEL LOUNGE!

    Miner was formed in 2013 around husband & wife Justin and Kate Miner, along with Justin's brother Jeremy Miner. Their debut album Into The Morning (2014) blended sunny California harmonies and traditional folk instruments with anthemic choruses and introspective lyrics, and behind the success of singles "Hey Love" and "Carousel" they established their place in the indie-folk revival scene and built the band into a national touring act.

    For their follow-up record, Tuanaki, the band traveled to Seattle to record with producer Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, The Shins, Modest Mouse, Band of Horses). The album finds Miner further establishing their singular aesthetic and expanding their sonic palette, while still retaining their California folk roots. Tuanaki is named after an island in the south Pacific that was discovered in the 19th century, which then subsequently disappeared when sailors attempted to return. The album is scheduled for release on February 26, 2016.

    CARCASS & CROWBAR

    CARCASS - CROWBAR at CLUB RED!

    CARCASS has released several classic albums over the years, including Decibel Magazine "Hall of Fame" inductees Heartwork and Necroticism – Descanting the Insalubrious, and their influence has changed the face of extreme metal with every consecutive release. Whether it was inventing gore-grind (i.e. Reek of Putrefaction, Symphonies of Sickness) or creating the template for melodic death metal (i.e. Heartwork), CARCASS has always made records by which bars were set and rules were broken. Upon the band's dismantling in 1996, fans mourned the loss of the seminal act and longed that the group would return again one day. In 2007, the metal world got its wish as CARCASS reformed to play several sold-out reunion shows around the globe. Once again re-motivated to administer a shot of cynicism and infectious riffs into the arm of a sickly metal scene, founding members Bill Steer and Jeff Walker began writing what would become the latest output of their highly influential career, Surgical Steel. Only the choicest of cuts were made, and blood sweat and tears were shed to bring us a record worthy of the CARCASS legacy. In short, Surgical Steel is just what the doctor ordered.

    INTER ARMA & WITHERED

    INTER ARMA with WITHERED at THE REBEL LOUNGE!

    Formed in 2006, Inter Arma is one of the most talked about heavy bands to come out of Richmond, VA . The group (consisting of T.J. Childers - Drums, Steven Russell - Guitars, Trey Dalton - Guitars, Mike Paparo - Vocals, Joe Kerkes - Bass) formed in 2006 and released their crushing debut full-length Sundown via Forcefield Records in 2010 to much critical acclaim. Combining a punk rock ethos with an esoteric blend of psychedelia, black metal, and doom/sludge, the quintet quickly developed a name for themselves in the underground through relentless touring and mesmerizing live performances. After Sundown's release, Inter Arma began a rigorous DIY touring schedule, playing shows with bands like Cough, Krallice, Mutant Supremacy, Castevet, Royal Thunder, Ken Mode, The Body, Hull, Batillus, Black Breath and many more.

    Fishbone

    FISHBONE at THE REBEL LOUNGE!

    Celebrating 25+ groundbreaking years, FISHBONE has been trailblazing their way through the history of American Ska, Funk, Punk, Rock Fusion and (so-called) Black Rock since starting their professional career in Los Angeles' burgeoning, Alternative Rock music scene of the mid-1980s. Their sound has often been imitated, but never duplicated. They have toured worldwide with such bands as the Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Roots, Les Claypool/Primus, Fela Kuti, George Clinton, The Dead Kennedys and many more. Angelo Moore's ability to combine thought-provoking, humorous social commentary with FISHBONE's frenzied, up-tempo music and frantic, euphorically entertaining stage show has cultivated their undisputed reputation as one of the best live acts in music history.

    THE GARDEN

    THE GARDEN at VALLEY BAR!

    The Garden is a constantly evolving, conceptual punk band based in Orange County, California. Established in in 2011 by twin brothers Wyatt and Fletcher Shears, the band consistently defies categorization and continues to break ground in their self inflicted 'Vada Vada' genre*. They are the auditory invaders of the new world; borderless, informed and decentralized, slick sound released from constraint and old ideologies. *Vada Vada: An idea that represents pure creative expression, that disregards all previously made genres and ideals.- Wyatt Shears, 2015

    THE HOTELIER WITH TOLD SLANT & LOONE

    THE HOTELIER at THE REBEL LOUNGE!

    It is not enough to say that The Hotelier have grown older, or wiser, or more of anything. We can trace a progression, if we like, from the explosive empowerment of It Never Goes Out to the ashen disillusionment of Home, Like Noplace Is There. We can follow an awakening of youth in suburbia attempting to learn what is right, and what is ours, and what is possible and impossible, and maybe we can't save each other like we thought we once could. We're awake and we're tired and we want love in our lives again. And so we find ourselves now in Goodness, in the woods outside of the suburbs, trying to re-learn that love.

    RICHIE RAMONE with THE VENOMOUS PINKS, LIGHTSPEEDGO & THE REBEL SET

    RICHIE RAMONE - THE VENOMOUS PINKS - LIGHTSPEEDGO - THE REBEL SET at THE REBEL LOUNGE!

    Richie Ramone is the fastest, most powerful drummer who ever played with the legendary punk rock band the Ramones. He joined the Ramones in 1983 and performed in over 500 showssaround the world with the Ramones. Richie was the only Ramones drummer to sing lead vocals and to be the sole composer of Ramones songs which appear on the albums Animal Boy, Too Tough to Die and Halfway to Sanity. Richie's song, "Somebody Put Something in My Drink," became a fan favorite and was included on "Ramones Mania," the only Ramones album to go gold as well as "Loud, Fast Ramones: Their Toughest Hits," an album comprised of songs hand picked by Johnny Ramone as the Ramones' best works. Punk rock icon, Joey Ramone, remarked that "[Richie] saved the band as far as I'm concerned. He's the greatest thing to happen to the Ramones. He put the spirit back in the band." On October 8, 2013, Richie released his first solo album, "Entitled," which features new songs written by Richie as well as new recordings of songs he wrote for the Ramones. Billboard notes, "Richie's 12 freshest cuts aim to please fans of both rock and metal with its blend of power chord-chugging simplicity and guitar hero virtuosity.

    THE SO SO GLOS with HONDURAS

    THE SO SO GLOS - HONDURAS at Pub Rock Kids!

    The So So Glos began in 1991 when brothers Alex Levine & Ryan Levine met Zach Staggers in kindergarten in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Through a series of divorces and remarriages the three became brothers. They played music before they knew how to under monikers such as SPITT, Urban Eyze & Every Other Weekend.

    RADIO MOSCOW with SACRI MONTI

    RADIO MOSCOW - SACRI MONTI at THE REBEL LOUNGE!

    Trends come and go, but the idea of a bunch of guys getting together in a garage and playing the kind of music that makes the neighbors call the cops — that's forever. And it's that idea that is crystallized in the form of Radio Moscow. The power trio led by the Stratocaster genius Parker Griggs have found THE formula: Crunching, heavy Sabbath-style chords topped with fiery solos that earn the right to be called Hendrix-ian. RM plants their flag firmly in the territory where psychedelic rock and cranked-up blues meet. The sound is unapologetically retro (think Cream, Blue Cheer, Led Zep or Jimi Hendrix Experience), so it's easy to see how it caught the ear of the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, who produced Radio Moscow's 2007 self-titled debut.
