Pale Blue Dot is the brainchild of Charlottesville, Virginia native Tony LaRocco, who has assembled a group of musicians committed to exploring the possibilities presented by his songwriting. Left turns abound in the band’s approach to arranging, which invokes the members’ influences, ranging from progressive rock to folk to bebop jazz. Pale Blue Dot is an emergent entity founded on robust, educated, and communicative musicianship. But first and foremost, the ensemble is steadfast in its focus on the power of LaRocco’s songwriting. Recorded in studios in the Shenandoah Valley, Nashville, and Washington, D.C., Pale Blue Dot’s new LP Anatomy is out now.
Nerds in Denial wishes to bring you back to this time in recent history, where being a nerd, a dork, or a geek wasn’t just degrading: it was dangerous. With their charming personalities, groovy music, and metrosexual aesthetic, you’ll be sure to love every single nostalgic moment of their performance, whether live, recorded, or some sort of strange hybrid that we’re sure will be the new technological advent in the near future.
Cobalt Clouds is a 3-piece rock band from Rochester, NY.
