Sometimes noisy, sometimes droning, often pretty & subtly poppy - very much a product of their hometown of Olympia, WA & equally nodding to the grungy, off-center, not-too-pop pop music prolific in Pacific Northwest since the early nineties (The Melvins, KARP, Unwound) & the eerie, haunting melodies of Mazzy Star, My Bloody Valentine, Cocteau Twins, or Black Tambourine.
BUNNY'S A SWINE
Northampton's own '90s-worshipping awk-slop-pop brigade - they're as cool as Kim Deal.
Lo-fi lady-fronted punk via Northampton & Brattleboro. '79 meets '91 meets '13.
Manic, fuzzed-out indie rock from some newcomers on the Western Mass scene. Bang yr head & pogo!

THE 7-PERSON CHAIR PYRAMID HIGH WIRE ACT
a new play by members of The Missoula Oblongata
In the wilds of Siberia, Charles Darwin goes off search of the Yeti. The Yeti (if she exists) enters a radio station’s dance contest, hoping to win an all-expenses-paid vacation to a place that doesn’t exist yet. Darwin’s research companion—a little brown bat—falls in love with the radio station’s electromagnetic emissions—but how could that ever end happily? Meanwhile, Siberia’s caves are home to a secretive tribe of ropemakers — but their disintegrating family structure may cause their ancient craft to be lost forever. Through the lens of the real life allegory of the Flywing Wallendas’ famous high-wire act, two performers on a tiny stage unfold Darwin’s laboratory, unfurl anatomic diagrams of the yeti, and try to tease out the difference between miracles and non-miracles. Written by Donna Oblongata (member of The Missoula Oblongata, Wham City, and producer/director of the 2012 production Less Miserable) Designed and performed by Donna Oblongata and Patrick Costello (visual artist extraordinaire and also a star of Less Miserable) Directed by Sarah Lowry (member of The Missoula Oblongata).

Nashville glitter-punk! "Cheap Time still holds their Redd Kross influence close to their heart, yet with further expansion on the 1976-era fork in the road artistic direction, they belligerently steer themselves into unclassifiable categories, akin to when the newly marketed punk label was still being applied to atypical bands like The Quick, Television, The Fast & Milk 'n Cookies, much to the confusion of the record-buying public. While Cheap Time may inconspicuously take more cues from the Dickies, Sparks & Zolar X than anyone else these days, it's their unique assembly of all these incorrigible styles into one cohesive sounding record that makes them rise above the overall current wave of pop music & into the clear forefront of modern rock'n'roll" (In the Red Records).
Pure pop perfection from the Vancouver duo of Jon & Rose, with Rose being the one & only Rose Melberg, of Tiger Trap, the Softies, Brave Irene, etc.

On tour with Lovebrrd. Localese left-field folkster.
Deformed and beautiful pop. Head honcho over at Lava Church Tapes. Recently he's been playing New Order's "Technique" in its entirety, solo, on a casio. I don't think that's what he's planning for this tour, though.
Good ol' heavy and melodic indie-punk. Akin those Swarzenbachian bands of yore. On Hardly Art and from Portland, Oregon.
The Old Man On The Hill of Western Mass noise. Completely hermetic scuzz and bleeps.
Hellraiser inspired out of tune synth fuckery. On tour from Florida.

SPROTON LAYER (Millers’ band from 1969-1970) TO REFORM!
The three Miller brothers plus a trumpetist.
The band will most likely play a healthy dose of “With Magnetic Fields Disrupted”, recorded 1970, as well as material from their next album, “Press Your Hand and the Whole Room Fluctuates”, recorded 1969-1971, due on World in Sound Records in early 2014. The band has decided not to drop acid again or run around in the woods smoking joints, but this should not keep them from delivering their very psychedelic sound in a convincing manner.
