Shagwüf – Charlottesville quartet featuring folk-rock princess Sally Rose on bass plays a rambunctious style of swamp-rock, funk, and heavy hitting blues numbers with attitude. With Pete Stallings of Lost Indian and Secret Ninja on guitar, Pablo Oliveri of Pablo & the Dregs and The Findells on drums, and Ivan Christopher Christo of Jaguardini on keys, Shagwüf is a jigsaw of the Cville scene just trying to keep the cool in rock n’ roll.
Matt Curreri & The Exfriends – “A clever and unkempt songwriter whose catchy rock-and-roll chanteys capture the warm joys and cold sweats of one’s twenties.” – The New Yorker
“An insidiously clever artist…melodies as succinct and captivating as songs from The Beatles.” – C-Ville Weekly
Born Crooked – Sometimes it takes just two to rock the world. Need proof? Listen to Born Crooked — and crank it up. What you’ll hear is the urgent, searing vocals and slashing slide guitar of Hunter Wolfe and the thundering drums of his sister, ARE. That’s it, but that’s plenty. Their sound is rooted in Delta blues and infused with a passion that’s impossible to ignore. Whether dredging from deep wells of loneliness on “Your Death (Is Killing Me)” or burning in the dark heat of love on “Hypnotize Me,” the music of Born Crooked cannot be denied.
