Aestrid

Aestrid is a three-piece band from Soest, the Netherlands. Their sound balances between post-punk and ambient electronic music meeting the wideness of shoegaze in the middle. Whether it is about the randomness while improvising, or the perfectionism that used to rule the early days of the band, Aestrid is always about the feeling that remains.

The Do Good Badlies

The DGB is proud to be on the heavier side of a new Rock & Roll movement in Canada being led by bands like Hollerado and the Arkells. Heavy Alternative Rock drunk with 70's Rock & Roll swagger and a live show so energetic you can't help but be consumed by it. Think the Black Keys meets Queens of the Stone Age with just a touch of that classic "Can-Rock" sound.

The Meringues

The Meringues have a whole new meaning for stage presence. They're like a freight train that's about to de-rail; an abandoned building leaning on it's last lonesome support wall. 

One screw comes loose, and the whole thing could come crashing down right in front of your eyes. Their live show is a catastrophe waiting to happen and you won't be able look away.

Tom Savage

Tom Savage is what one might refer to as a triple-threat. One part truth-telling troubadour, one part death-defying guitar slinger, and one part Country Blues howler. Each facet of his formidable on-stage persona carefully crafted over a 20+ year devotion to the composition and performance of song.

Paper Ladies

Once mortal enemies, Thomas and Joe grew to gain a healthy respect for one another, and chose to express this respect through music. With the imminent demise of their previous musical venture, The Stone Throws, the two quickly fell back into their old, hateful ways. The Paper Ladies is their latest attempt at maintaining respect for one another through the use of tasty licks and slick grooves. They hope to inspire dance and love throughout all who listen to their music, and have the dream that a fan will day name their twin sons Thomas and Joe (not necessarily after them, it'd just be nice). The boys invite you to come hang, dance, and love. No Guff.
