The Von Shakes:

The Von Shakes are an Indie Rock & Roll band with a bit of a punk edge. Expect a lot of furious guitar and hard pelting drums, Energy! Energy! Energy!! The Irish foursome bring it to every stage they hit. With their gloriously impassioned sound, great vocals and catchy lyrics, it’s no wonder the U.S has taken a liking to them. The band is empowered by infectious choruses and modern riff’s . They can now truly add New York to their constantly growing devoted fan bass that extends to Germany, London and Russia. Like many before them, TVS embody the sound of youth, angst and chaos.

Valerie Orth:

“There is an honesty to Valerie Orth’s music that is both brilliant and heartbreaking,” writes the San Francisco Chronicle. With a multi-octave voice that soars from the depths of bitterness to the height of sweetness, Orth tells stories of empowerment and yearning, while pulling in audiences with her raw magnetism on stage. 
 
Described as “sexy, soulful, genuine, and edgy” by the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Orth's dynamic range as a performer is made all the more compelling by what the East Bay Express calls a "completely intuitive composition style."

Reviewing her shows opening for legendary songwriter Shawn Colvin, Rock Subculture wrote "Valerie is definitely one of the most impressive supporting acts I've seen in some time, and is one of those artists who have the ability to going from being an unknown to you and turning you into a fan.” 

In 2013, Orth relocated from San Francisco to Brooklyn with long-time bassist Veronika Adams. Immediately joined by some of New York's finest players, they began touring again, reinventing their sound as a distinctive hybrid of alternative rock, punk-folk, dark pop and even trip-hop. Orth maintains her thought-provoking lyrics, gorgeous melodies, and unpredictable-yet-unforgettable arrangements, regardless of genre.
 
Previously, Orth collaborated with Jon Evans (of Tori Amos) for her full-length album, Faraway City (2011), which WERU's Rich Hillsinger named Best Album of the Year.
 
Last year, she released Fires and Overturned Cars, a compilation of fresh singles, B-sides and Orth classics. As a special release for their loyal fans, Adams and Orth handmade limited edition CD covers, each one completely unique. Their first batch sold out in just 5 hours! (http://store.valerieorth.com/merch).
 
To Orth, music is a healing power unlike any other, especially when performing at juvenile halls, homeless shelters, and drug rehabilitation centers. After an emotional performance at San Francisco's Youth Guidance Center, a teenage girl relayed her admiration, saying, "I will remember this for the rest of my life."

    The Post

    The Post was born in a dark basement on Rivington Street... and the rest is historical fiction. They are the first hyperanalytical, ultrarevisionist rock band of the modern era. One might even call them Postmodern. Made of technology and gumption, The Post explores diverse topics such as frogs, quantitative easing, and Memphis, all within the framework of progressive-psychedelic-folk-blues-pop rock. #ThePostIsNice #ThePostIsFuture #ThePostIsABand #PostMoBills
