Like Pacific

Like Pacific is a Punk quintet hailing from Toronto, Canada. The band, which consists of Jordan Black (vocals), Chris Thaung (bass), Greg Hall (guitar), Luke Holmes (guitar) and Taylor Ewart (drums), has found itself making waves in the Pop Punk scene through their unique, energetic and upbeat but introspective form of Pop Punk. Their references to their beloved hometown streets with song titles like “Richmond”, “Chine Drive” and a scenic Toronto-based music video for “Distant’’ have made them one of Toronto’s staples in the scene.

After being featured on Alternative Press’ “100 Bands You Need to Know”, the band signed to Pure Noise Records in the winter of 2014. The band released their debut full-length “Distant Like You Asked” 2 years later. The record was tracked at Room 21 Sound with the scene-renowned producer Sam Guaiana. The album would result in many achievements for the band; leading to 5,000 copies sold worldwide, 1 million Spotify plays on the single “Distant”, and features in Spotify’s official playlists such as “Punk Rock Workout” and “Pop Punk’s Not Dead”.

The band began to see new opportunities on the road, being a part of the AP Tour with State Champs and Neck Deep, the full Vans Warped Tour, Riot Fest and SXSW. They would also end up on tour packages with bands like Good Charlotte, Senses Fail, Counterparts and Four Year Strong. Furthermore, the band has toured the U.K and Europe various times with the Slam Dunk Festival and Trophy Eyes.

Like Pacific are swinging for massive success and with a recent history of the past few years of touring the world to having their merchandise sold at Hot Topics internationally, their trajectory is exponential. Make sure to check out Like Pacific on tour at a city near you!

    Sleep Signals

    2017 promises to be a huge year for Sleep Signals, starting with the release of their new single, “I’ll Save You”, on 1/27/17, along with an accompanying music video that the band shot in the frigid woods of Minnesota. The single was produced by Justin Rimer (Saving Abel, 12 Stones) at Crosstrax Studio in Memphis, TN, and is the precursor to the upcoming album, "At the End of the World," coming out in September.

    Founded in 2014, Sleep Signals have garnered a dedicated following through relentless touring, their explosive live performances, and their ability to blend catchy hooks with their high-energy songwriting style. Since hitting the road in early 2015, the band has played more than 175 shows in over twenty-five states, building a solid fan base across the country.

    The band released their second EP, Transitions, in early 2016 and followed it up with US tours with heavy hitters Screaming for Silence and Lydia Can’t Breathe. They have also shared the stage with bands like Seether, In Flames, Saving Abel, Bobaflex, Ill Nino, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Alesana, Volumes, Capture the Crown, The Browning, Letters from the Fire, and 3 Pill Morning.

    The Scars Heal in Time

    THE SCARS HEAL IN TIME

    Primal, raw, rock 'n roll, at its most basic and pure.

    In a few words, this best describes Houston's own The Scars Heal In Time.

    Kayla Smith on guitar and vocals with sister Tayler Smith on drums, percussion and Tristin Paz on bass guitar make up the band, and have brought real passion back to rock 'n roll. They have a sound all their own, that express teenage angst, frustration, as well as hope and dreams of the new generation. You likely have never heard a sound exactly like The S.H.I.T., but they will charm you, surprise you, stun you and leave you wanting more.

                Formed in the Fort Worth area in 1999, Spoonfed Tribe is a musical/visual group known for mesmerizing live shows combining hypnotic walls of percussion, psychedelic sonics and mind-expanding visuals. Since their debut, the Tribe has remained on the road, building a sizeable fan base inspired by appearances at music fests including Lollapalooza, Joshua Tree, Voodoo Music Experience and Wakarusa, sharing bills with acts such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Flaming Lips, Nine Inch Nails, Blues Traveler, Galactic and many more.

                The band has released six albums, including 2010's Live from DFW and is in the process of recording the follow-up to 2007's Public Service Announcement, due in 2012.

                "To describe a Spoonfed Tribe gathering would take too many words, talking too small to measure what is gained by the actual experience of it all. So, to do our best, imagine a show that captures all senses, presents all musical styles, glows with a fluorescent fury, and creates space to be different and unique, all while making you dance like an idiot!"

                Old Salt Union

                Old Salt Union is known for playing music by their own set of rules. While the men who make up this group are not complete rebels, they are certainly thinking about the future of music. They find influence in the bluegrass roots of The Del McCoury Band and Sam Bush, but also draw inspiration from Bill Evans, Danny Elfman, Punch Brothers, and many more talented musicians. What makes Old Salt Union so special is their ability to stretch the boundaries of traditional bluegrass music by incorporating in-depth musical arrangements, a catchy hook, and an uncanny pop sensibility. They truly are a new generation of bluegrass in the industry.

                Established in May of 2012, Old Salt Union recorded their debut album “Western Skies” in October of the same year. While their album was independently released in March of 2013, it was clear by the overwhelmingly positive response that their fan base would grow rapidly in the following months. In January of 2014, Old Salt Union began exclusively touring the country, so that their reach would expand, exposing more fans to their type of complex, high energy, and well-executed sound.

                With the release of their second studio album, “Bridge”, in August of 2014, Old Salt Union tells a tale of transition. The two years that they have been together has shown that they are a force to be reckoned with in the world of music. They have established solid roots, winning the STL Riverfront Times “Best Bluegrass Band” in 2013 and “Best Country Band” in 2014, all while traveling the country. They have made appearances at the John Hartford Memorial Festival, Wakarusa, LouFest, and Yonder Mountain String Band’s Harvest Festival, sharing the stage with The Del McCoury Band, Sam Bush, Greensky Bluegrass, Ricky Skaggs, and more – and no ma’am, they ain’t stopping yet.

                Carrie Nation & the Speakeasy is a high-energy, acoustic brass 'n' grass outfit based out of Wichita, KS. The band, whose sound has been described as a stagecoach in overdrive, has brought their eclectic blend of punk, bluegrass, dixieland, and circus tunes to packed bars, basements, and festivals across the United States since 2007.

                With tunes that cover just about everything from drinkin' to
                dyin' to livin' and lyin', CNS can fill the dance floor with their blazing bluegrass and circus tunes as quickly as they can provoke existential introspection with dark, slinky tunes reminiscent of a New Orleans funeral march. Blaring trombones melt into break-neck banjo solos, while the "junkyard" trap set and stand-up bass churn out hard-driving rhythms that carry the force of a Kansas freight train.

                This unique blend of styles combined with the high energy maintained on stage, allows CNS to fit perfectly into any lineup including folk, bluegrass, punk, metal, ska, or jam. Always providing an energetic and drink 'em down atmosphere to any place they play, Carrie Nation & the Speakeasy has proven a dedication to their live shows with a solid understanding of what entertainment really means.

                Strung Out

                Southern California punkers Strung Out were formed in 1992, with a lineup featuring vocalist Jason Cruz, guitarists Jake Kiley and Rob Ramos, bassist Jim Cherry, and drummer Jordan Burns (formerly of Ten Foot Pole, who joined up after the band's first 7"). The quintet signed with NOFX bassist Fat Mike's Fat Wreck Chords label in 1993 and issued a debut album, Another Day in Paradise, the following year. The band took an artistic leap forward with the 1996 follow-up, Suburban Teenage Wasteland Blues, an album whose rapid-fire playing began to build their following among fans of new-school punk-pop. In 1998 Strung Out issued the Crossroads & Illusions EP and the full-length Twisted by Design, the latter a more progressive work that found the group beginning to mix elements of technique-oriented heavy metal into its instrumental attack; in addition, Fat Wreck Chords issued a set of early Strung Out material titled The Skinny Years: Before We Got Fat. Cherry left the band in 1999, going on to play with Zero Down and Pulley, and was replaced by Chris Aiken on bass. The band returned in 2000 with the EP The Element of Sonic Defiance and followed two years later with An American Paradox, the band's first album to chart on Billboard (hitting number 11 on the Independent Albums chart). Their summer 2003 live album featured 21 tracks and comic book artwork done by Cruz himself. Strung Out's fifth full-length, Exile in Oblivion, was produced by Matt Hyde (Slayer) and issued in November 2004; it contained the song "Swan Dive," which was a tribute to former bassist Jim Cherry, who had sadly passed away in July 2002 from a lifelong heart condition. In June of 2007 the band's next effort, Blackhawks Over Los Angeles, came out. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide

                  The Runaway Sons

                  Over the past half decade, the Runaway Sons have weathered changes in name and lineup that would have decimated most bands. Yet, here they are. ¡Soy España! is an incredible debut EP that sets a high standard for the Kansas City rock scene. No doubt people are going to compare the Runaway Sons with the Bronx: Both acts have sounds that fall somewhere between Motorhead and Black Flag. But ¡Soy España! owes more to the garage acts that pop up on Las Vegas Grind comps than anything else, and bands such as the Fabulous Continentals only wish they sounded this good. "Jerk and Gyrate" is a sped-up go-go number run through living-room-sized amps. And with sinuous guitars, boogie-beat drums and lines such as Dance, baby, we'll leave you wanting more, "Kathleen Turner Overdrive" is a true rarity — a song about dancing you can actually dance to.

                              Pink Royal makes sounds that blend ambient rock, electronica, indie synth-pop and all kinds of musical sexiness. Imagine Muse, MGMT, and Radiohead had a steamy musical orgy with Stevie Wonder, and Pink Royal was born 9 months later. Multiple vocalists make for electrifying performances, and are perfectly tuned to the complexity of the songs that belies their outright funkiness and dance groovability. Sharp guitars, mean synths and punchy beats characterize this young band’s unique sound. Pink Royal will make you believe.

Songwriter Nick Carswell is originally from Ireland and has found a new home on the plains of Kansas. The tone is a blend of psychedelic, Pink Floyd interrupting Motown, channeling Van Morrison and Wilco. Think Mumford & Sons meets Sigur Ros, and Glen Hansard shows them around town.

                              Jaw Gems

                              Jaw Gems, an electronic outfit from Portland, Maine, is a collective of young, experimental producers bringing beat-music – traditionally programmed and played on samplers – to a live band setting. The mesmerizing result is a harmonic convergence.

                              Combine legendary beat-makers like J Dilla and Flying Lotus with indie rock and electronic icons like Deerhunter and Washed Out, then add Radiohead’s dreamy ambience and you begin to approach the sound of Jaw Gems.

                              “Dilla is the common thread for how we all met and began playing together,” says keyboardist Hassan Muhammad. “Not many people in Portland knew about him seven years ago, so through various friends we were all pointed out to each other and we were blessed with the opportunity to hold a weekly residency at a bar, playing all the stuff we liked and getting increasingly weird.”

                              Since their start in 2009, the band has been exploring sonic and rhythmic ideas that emphasize interlaced melodies and heavy grooves. First outfitted solely with dueling vintage synthesizers, a drummer, and an electric bassist, Jaw Gems have now incorporated a Roland sp404 and the Juno 106 analog synth, going on to employ the beat- repeating, sample-warping technologies of the present to help create their wall of sound. Armed with new gear, Jaw Gems were able to evolve their beats, trigger intricate samples, and alter sounds in an increasingly advanced way. “You can do so much with these devices, and we all have our own ways of using them,” says bassist Andrew Scherzer.

                              This August, Jaw Gems will release their second album, HEATWEAVER, via STS9’s

                              1320 Records. The 14-tracks create a thickly layered transcendental auditory world – a meticulously crafted collection grounded in a modern electronic aesthetic. HEATWEAVER melds neck-breaking, hip-hop synthesizers and nostalgic atmospheres, while simultaneously touching on elements of psychedelic funk, neo-soul, and punk rock.

                              Jaw Gems likes to keep their recording process relaxed to allow for creative diversity.

                              Setting up shop in a makeshift home studio, the band hunkers down and lets their songs come to life. “We like to make a retreat out if it,” says drummer DJ Moore, noting that all of the musicians have been involved in other projects. “Making music is how we chill, and the album naturally unfolded once we were all committed to being in the same place together for some time.” The title itself came from thinking of the album visually. “We thought about what images the music evoked throughout the whole process, and when someone said “heat weaver,” we all felt it embodied our sound,” he says.

                              Put four beatmakers in a room together for a week, and the outpouring of ideas could be endless. “As we develop as individual musicians each of our sounds morph and evolve in different ways, so when we come together to record we all bring something new to build upon,” Moore says. “Our creative process is never the same,” says keyboardist and sampler Quist. “We tend to refine our ideas in rehearsal, figuring out how to play them as a band, but most of our ideas start off as a beat one of us made. On HEATWEAVER, we let some of our beats stay in a more bedroom beat format, and others we revamped to sound a lot more live.” In this case, Jaw Gems was left with a solid compilation attesting to their evolution as tenacious genre-bending producers. “Jaw Gems have done the magic trick of delivering a thoroughly listenable instrumental album that you can also sing along to,” says electronic musician Daedelus.

                              Perhaps it’s this uninhibited sound that has also attracted the likes of other notable musicians. T3 of J Dilla’s Slum Village calls HEATWEAVER “mad fresh.” Lettuce drummer Adam Deitch says, “The swing that J Dilla made famous on an MPC beat machine in the late ‘90s is embedded in Jaw Gems’ musical DNA, just as much as soul and funk. They have created a psychedelic, jazz-rooted, West African feeling.”

                              Lyle Divinsky of Colorado’s The Motet has declared them his “new favorite band” and describes their sound as “a completely unique brew of hip-hop, jazz, funk, avant-garde, and classical music, steeped in originality and psychedelia.”

                              Since the release of their debut album, Blades Plural, Jaw Gems has gone on to share stages with icons such as STS9, Lettuce, and Daedelus. The band also emphasizes matching their work with video. Some examples include Akai Floss, which reached over 7,000 views independent of any label or premiere. Stay tuned for a full tour announcement coming soon.

                                Koo Koo Kanga Roo

                                In my lifetime, I've seen Gwar devour celebrities on stage, I've seen Converge play in my friend's basement, and I've seen Bad Luck 13 Riot Extravaganza nearly burn down a sports complex. But this is the weirdest f-ing show I've ever been to. And I was dragged here by, of all people, Frank Turner.

                                -VICE MAGAZINE'S NOISEY

                                Koo Koo Kanga Roo are two guys named Neil and Bryan (first names only, please), who together are the epitome of the love them or hate them musical act.

                                Hailing out of Minneapolis, Neil and Brian first began fusing their twisted hip-hop and dance music with kindergarten memories about four years ago. Since then, they've done major tours with the likes of Reel Big Fish and have garnered an audience that ranges in age from 4 to 24. With these guys, it's just iPods and costumes as they lead crowds in sing-a-longs concerning the best sounding letters in the alphabet and the joys of eating sandwiches without the crusts.

                                Kind of like a really demented and even more nerdy version of They Might Be Giants, Koo Koo Kanga Roo want everything to be as dance-minded and light-hearted as possible.

                                -DALLAS OBSERVER

                                Take the goofy synth-punk of Atom and His Package, mix it with the party-friendly vibe of Andrew WK and use that combination to write the scripts for an upcoming kids' show to go head to head with Sesame Street, and you might get something like Koo Koo Kanga Roo. Or you might not. Because the mix that is Koo Koo Kanga Roo might be too bizarre to replicate.

                                A pair of jaded indie rockers who decided that they could have more fun playing music for a party that anything too deep or introspective, Koo Koo Kanga Roo is frightfully bizarre and hopelessly fun. If you ever just want something to crank at a party that will make everyone happy, this stuff sits right up there with classic stuff like the Ramones.

                                    Benjamin Booker

                                    Benjamin Booker is an American musician, singer, songwriter and guitarist. He cites The Gun Club, Blind Willie Johnson and T. Rex as influences. His music was described by the Chicago Tribune as "a raw brand of blues/boogie/soul," by The Independent as "frenzied guitar-strumming and raw, soulful vocals that are hair-raising in intensity” and by SPIN as "bright, furious, explosive garage rock.”


                                    Benjamin was born in Virginia Beach, Virginia. His family relocated to Tampa, Florida, where he attended all-ages DIY punk shows as a teenager. He attended Orange Grove Middle School, a magnet school for the performing arts, followed by Hillsborough High School, where he studied in the International Baccalaureate Program. He then attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, studying journalism with intentions of going into music journalism. After college, he moved to New Orleans to work for a non-profit organization and began playing shows.

                                    Booker's self-titled debut album was recorded in December 2013 at The Bomb Shelter, an analog studio in Nashville. Produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray for the Riff Raff), the album was released on August 19, 2014 via ATO Records in the United States and Rough Trade Records in Europe. He went on to open shows for Jack White and Courtney Barnett.


                                    Booker's second album Witness was written primarily in Mexico City and released on June 2, 2017. The album was produced by Sam Cohen (Kevin Morby) and announced with the premiere of its title track "Witness" (featuring Mavis Staples) alongside an essay written by Booker which detailed the experience that led him towards writing the album's title track. The album has garnered praise from Rolling Stone, the NY Times, and the Guardian.

                                      Big Thief

                                      Every once in a while, a band comes along that leaves expectations, cynicism, and emotional distance ruined in a heap on the floor. Brooklyn's Big Thief is that band. To hear songwriter Adrianne Lenker's lilting narratives and twisted, fuzzy guitars is to love them. Lenker's lyrical storytelling is equally grounded and autobiographical as it is surreal and cabalistic. Just ask Big Thief fan Sharon Van Etten. "Some of the most compelling songs I've heard in a long time," says Van Etten. "Driving songs that take you on a real journey, with intelligent stories and twist-and-turn melodies. And fun as hell live."

                                      The band, which includes Buck Meek on guitar, Max Oleartchik on bass, and James Krivchenia on drums, announces its signing to Saddle Creek. News of their debut album will be forthcoming, as will a slew of performances at this year's SXSW.

                                                                          Jonathan Richman has been writing songs, making records and performing live for most of his life, winning fans and making friends around the world with his guileless honesty and playfully catchy compositions. He's revered by countless fellow artists, and has built a remarkably loyal international audience through his tireless touring. His deceptively straightforward songs embody timeless qualities of humanity, optimism, emotional insight and a boundless sense of humor, untainted by cynicism or transient notions of hipness.

                                                                          The records that Jonathan Richman has made over the past 30 years have long held a special place in the hearts of his fans. He began playing guitar at the age of 15, and in the early 1970s formed the Modern Lovers, whose raw, minimalist sound and emotionally forthright songs helped to lay the groundwork for punk rock. But by the time the group's landmark debut album (including the much-covered "Road Runner," a Top Five single in Europe) was released in 1976, Jonathan had already moved on to a quieter sound and a gentler lyrical focus. Since then, he's continued to record and tour prolifically, first with a series of Modern Lovers lineups, later on his own, and eventually as a duo with drummer Tommy Larkins. Over the years, Jonathan's music has absorbed a multitude of influences, from doo-wop to country to a variety of international styles, without sacrificing the artist's effervescent personality.

                                                                          Jonathan's fans have remained fiercely devoted over the years, and his audience expanded substantially in the 1990s, thanks to his frequent guest spots on TV's Late Night with Conan O'Brien, his prominent appearance in the 1998 film comedy smash There's Something About Mary, and the inclusions of his Modern Lovers classics "Ice Cream Man" and "I'm A Little Airplane" on Sesame Street.

                                                                          For much of his career, Jonathan has toured almost almost nonstop around the world. "Traveling and playing for new people in new places is one of my favorite things," he notes. "It's great playing places that are off the beaten track. You can learn a lot when you play in a little town in Holland or Western Australia, and you learn different things than you would learn playing a big city. This year we're going to try to play in Extremadura, which is the southwest of Spain--we might become the first American entertainers ever to play there. I'm hoping that we can able to play the Canary Islands soon.

The band is comprised of Brian Moss (Guitar), Jordan Fairless (Bass), Andrew “Red” Johnson (Keys), and Cameron Laforest (Drums). Refusing to be restricted to any musical boundaries, Spafford seamlessly blends together an eclectic mixture of all of their collective musical experience. The heart of their sound is rooted in deep sonic exploration with a focus on improvisational elements. With jams stretching well beyond the typical structures of their songs, fans have flocked to their live shows to experience the unique energy captured within each performance. A focus on blending genres with a deep foundation of patient groove building has helped craft a sound all their own. Formed in 2012 by happenstance, the band has been building an organic fanbase in the Southwestern United States through word of mouth ever since. As the secret has gotten out Spafford has moved onto national touring, sharing the stage on a coast to coast tour with jam heavyweights Umphrey’s Mcgee in 2017. Reaching the next level in their ascent in an ever changing jam band landscape, Spafford has risen to the top of the next wave of acts by providing quality improvisation and a truly unique musical experience. Spafford has hit the road full time and is bringing their high energy performances nationwide.
