Wild Rose – New garage rock band from Charlottesville consisting of former members of Slugz, Fried Egg, Kommunion, and Eurotics. They recently released their first EP in January of 2017 consisting of 5 hard rock tracks with strong British punk influence.
Crab Action are bizarro interstellar punk rock from Harrsionburg, featuring Gnat King Cruel on vocals, The Unnameable Horror (aka “Lloyd”) on drums, Broccoli Killbush on guitar, Booze Worm on that other guitar, and Gygax Icehammer on that other other guitar (aka bass). Possibly the weirdest band you’ll ever see here (and we’ve seen some weird bands).
Horizontal Hold is a weird-pop quartet from North Carolina. The members have been in many NC bands of the recent (and not-so-recent) past including Wembley, Shiny Beast, In the Year of the Pig, Actual Persons Living or Dead, Cantwell Gomez & Jordan, Taija Rae, Analogue, Razzle, Drug Yacht, and others.
Breakers bring a mix of originals stylistically inspired by the past five decades of rock and laid over top a bed of interweaving compositions. With more modern influences by the Beach Boys, the Strokes, QOTSA, Green Day & the Who, it’s a realized compositional style spray-painted with simple straight forward New York rock n’ roll. “Debussy meets alt rock” – Matt’s friend
