North by North and Vinnie Guidera
Hailing from the land of brutal winters and deep dish pizza, North by North have developed their own brand of infectious, spastic yet finely-honed rock and roll. They seamlessly toe the line between 3 minute garage pop anthems and your dad’s favorite “prog-rock deep cuts” cassette tape, with plenty of hooks to spare. Vinnie Guidera does inventive moody indie rock with poetic lyrics and intensely dynamic arrangements.

June 2019

Saturday, June 1st
The Dive Bar Bombers and Jet Black Popes
Dive Bar Bombers are a power trio playing a satisfying blend of blues, rock, power pop, and soul. If a Peterbilt 18-wheeler hauling Superchunk’s drums and guitars crashed into a Toyota Prius carrying the remains of the Minutemen’s D. Boon and some of the Dandy Warhols’ backstage furniture, what would be splashed out onto the highway is the Jet Black Popes. Welsh Rarebits.

Kevin & Allyson Seconds, Bobby Jordan, and Nolan Erck
Kevin & Allyson's beautiful harmonies make the world a better place. Bobby Jordan is an Americana/singer-songwriter who plays in the Mr. T Experience, Slattern V, Knockoffs, Red Star Memorial, Go National, and the Decibels. "Super hushed, good-guy vocals. Spewed out fragile 2 and a half minute confessionals about relationships (good and bad), growing up, memories, fastballs and other assorted confusing things. Nolan can rock the emo but is not emo. He can lay down the folk but isn’t exactly folky. He sometimes rocks with a band but does it in an almost heartbreakingly lonely way. He ain’t pop. What the hell is he?" -- Kevin Seconds, 7 Seconds

The Blue Lights
The Blue Lights are an alt-country and Americana band with honky-tonk, swing and swamp-pop roots. Listen to us break all the rules and make it work. They're a little dirty, a little too fast around the curves, a little raw, a little simple and stark, putting the big beat back in. It's time to get honest with the music again.
