LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR LINEUP:
The Facc-Tones, an eclectic rock outfit operating around Cambridge, MA, are guardians of the Sacred Sounds forged by the Heroes of Rock’s Golden Age. They didn’t Start the Fire, but carry Its flame through These Dark Times with infinite SIRIUSness and jest, that it might Illuminate the world once more when the Winds of Change return with fresh air to fuel the prophesied Second Coming of Rock.
Boston-based five-piece alternative rock band Miele most recently rocked the neighborhood with Somerville’s annual Porchfest. With dark, soulful female vocals oft compared to Grace Slick, and startling switches between mystical melodies and grungy/funky/tear-your-face off rock, Miele’s complex music keeps listeners surprised and delighted. This band with a flair for the dramatic has been featured on Aeronaut Brewing Company’s Duck Village Stage, and headlined Aeronaut’s Rock Benefit Show for The Arts supporting the National Endowment for the Arts this March.
In a recent review of Miele’s sophomore EP “Seed Crystal”, Allston Pudding writes, “the lyrical content ponders the evolution and form of emotion, inspiring the psych/funk sound surrounding it all”.
Miele frequently writes about psychology, nostalgia, love affairs, and an over-medicated society. The band features vocalist and keyboardist Melissa Nilles, bassist and backup vocalist Cedric Lamour, guitarist Joe Spilsbury, guitarist Vishal Vaswani, and drummer Ray Cohen.
Miele’s full-length debut album is due to be released in fall 2017. You can find their second EP “Seed Crystal” available on iTunes, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Spotify, and Kunaki.
Red Right Hand
March 2015 marked the debut of Red Right Hand. With a nod to one of their favorite songwriters and influences, Nick Cave, Red Right Hand straddles the line between accessible pop and garage rock. Think: Early PJ Harvey meets Patti Smith. Lineup: Jess Baggia, Gordon Carlson, Mario Epstein & Tom Maroon.
PowerSlut (solo acoustic)
On a mission to combine their love of ’90s alt-rock and lascivious urges, PowerSlut formed in late 2012. They have since released two albums (“With Great Power Comes Great Slut” in 2014 and “The Second Coming” in 2016), performed all over New England, and put out a music video. Their influences range from the Pixies to PJ Harvey to Queens of the Stone Age and Ween, and they’ve been described as Steel Panther’s bratty, witty little sister. They are currently working on a new EP, slated for release in Fall 2017.
several toots of a passed around peace pipe, into a wig flipped slab of hazy wooziness both fractured and fried and somewhat flying to its own spaced out oblivion, in truth just between you and me sounds like an out of it and clearly stoned Bardo Pond but don’t tell the others.
Steve Onderick – Filmmaker
Steve Onderick is just as confused as you are. He tries to use the art of cinema to make sense of the ever more baffling world we live in.
Brett West (Mnemonist)
Mnemonist is an indie rock trio from Cambridge, MA, formed by Brett West in 2015. They released their debut EP ‘No More and Too Much’ in 2017 and play shows in the New England area.
The Sound Down Cellar
The Sound Down Cellar is a straightforward alternative rock collective with pickles. The associates always leave room for propositions, making space for banjo only versions and club house remixes. The last show featured members who had met only twice, but felt like they were long lost shipmates, reunited in new past or future selves.
The Silver Mirrors
The Silver Mirrors are a Psych-y, Garage-y, Rock n Roll band from Boston pushing the frontiers of turtleneck rock with stormy clouds of fuzz, toe tappin’ rockers, and western skies through bloodshot eyes. Check out our new video for Cocaine Jesus.
