  • The Von Shakes

    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.

  • The Dirty Names

    The Dirty Names

    Hide Your Daughters. Hailing from the mid Atlantic region of the U.S.A, Dirty Names (formerly The Names) have arrived with the purpose of bringing back the lost art of pure Rock and Roll with a new twist. This up and coming band is comprised of five young men who have been playing music since they could shake a rattle. Dirty Names are: Harrison Cofer on guitar, Matt Rose on drums, Kit Whitacre on guitar and Sam Wetterau on bass guitar with each member featured on vocals. The Dirty Names are currently touring the east coast, spreading their gospel and building a Rock and Roll community.  What’s next for the Dirty Names? Continuing to deliver the high caliber, high energy shows that they are known for at a venue near you. So get off your ass and go see a Dirty Names show!!!

  • The Wives

    The Wives

    What started as a couple one-off, beer-fueled jam sessions at the cheapest practice spaces they could find became legitimate projects for Thom Levin, Danny Gomez, Dmitri Potemkin, and Charlie Ambler. The band set-up might be conventional, but their chemistry and mixture of doo-wop, surf rock, punk and garage rock is definitely unique.

  • Folding Legs

    Folding Legs

    Folding Legs is an alternative rock band based in New York, consisting of members who hail from different parts of the world. They merge music with art and performance.

  • Hawk and Dove

    Hawk and Dove

    Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, Hawk and Dove is an indie rock band whose calm-before-the-storm sound has been described as the “loudest quiet band you have ever heard” and “the psychedelic country David Bowie never wrote.” On Hawk and Dove’s 2012 album, This Yesterday Will Never End, the band mixes hauntingly beautiful ballads with thunderous stoner grooves to create a psychedelic rock sound that has never been heard before.
