More Info

BIO: The B Sides is a three-piece, Denver-based band focusing on Alternative music of the ‘90s. They have built a reputation for playing the less-performed songs from the popular bands of that era (Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day, etc.). Fielding requests from the audience has become a staple of a B Sides performance. If unable to fulfill a request, the band will learn it for the next performance at that venue. The B sides have garnered fans of all ages by also occasionally incorporating songs from the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘00s, (AC/DC, Peter Gabriel, Elvis Costello, Maroon 5, etc). Priding themselves on audience connection, professionalism, and musicianship, The B Sides is a must see act.

More Info

For over ten years The March Divide has been cultivating an acoustic-based sound wrought with reflective lyricism, observational cynicism, and heart-on-the-sleeve honesty. Sweeping up new fans across The United States with countless live sets every year, full of originals & fun covers, Jared Putnam’s vision for his indie-pop rock lingers on all those who hear it. From the initial release Music For Film in 2013 there has been a steady, unyielding growth to The March Divide that refuses to become complacent. This is apparent to anyone who spends time through Billions (2014), Anticipation Pops (2018), and Cinq (2021), most recent full length Lost Causes (2022), & countless singles. Existing somewhere in the smoldering ashes of classic Spoon and Jawbreaker, Lost Causes is the intentionally 90s indie rock sixth album from The March Divide. Teaming up with producer Mike Major (At the Drive-In, Sparta, Coheed and Cambria), the band blends nostalgia with power pop choruses, sizable hooks, and a hefty dose of clever lyrical choice in ten new songs. Throughout the course of his carrier, Putnam has garnered rave reviews from his live shows, rivaling the praise of his records, playing to new and existing fans across the country. With a seemingly unrelenting tour schedule, Putnam has crafted “completely clever” (Performer) songs “all about lyrics and melodies” (Babysue) that are “impressively hooky” (American Songwriter), filled with “bittersweet beauty” (Impose), and “catchy hooks” (Innocent Words) “There’s something wonderfully Fountains Of Wayne about it” (MAGNET) and the fans agree. Hearing The March Divide on record is one thing, but experiencing his solo acoustic live sets, including his fluid mix of originals and catchy covers, is a whole other experience to the Texas-based musician 'Lost Causes,' the critically acclaimed sixth full length album, by The March Divide, is out now on Slow Start Records.

ATCQ Bio:
Queens, New York natives Q-Tip , Phife Dawg , and Ali Shaheed Muhammad of Brooklyn, formed A Tribe Called Quest in 1985. The group is one of hip-hop’s most legendary, beloved and revered groups of all time. Easily recognized for their unique approach to rap music by employing jazz infused soundscapes to Afro centric rhymes, ATCQ was largely responsible for the popularity of a new genre that dominated the East Coast sound of the early 1990s. Sonically, ATCQ was a decisive and welcomed tangent of jazz, bass-heavy rhythmic vibes and eclectic sampling when compared to the mundane recycling of soul loops, breaks and vocals of their contemporaries. Lyrically, emcees Q-Tip and Phife Dawg addressed social issues relevant to young blacks such as use of the n word and its relevance, date rape and other interpersonal relationships, industry politics and consumerism with infectious energy and fun and having a good time while still promoting positivity. ATCQ composed a number of successful singles and albums with their creative approach to rap music. In 1990, the group released Peoples Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm. Their sophomore effort, The Low End Theory, considered one of the greatest albums in hip-hop history that would solidify them as legends. In recent years, the anticipation for another ATCQ album has been building. The Abstract Poetic, Five Foot Assasin, and Mr. Muhammad have yet to grace the studio for another record, but have hit the road again. Today, the power of their music is still evident in their dynamic stage shows and in the reception of their adoring fans.

Eli Lev originals and cover set at The Monkey Barrel. Rising singer-songwriter and global citizen Eli Lev is making the world a smaller place, one song at a time. Eli pens lyrics and melodies for everyday enlightenment—songs that resonate because they’re heartfelt, earthy, and offer the wisdom he’s gained through lifelong travel and self-discovery. Prior to becoming a full time musician, the Silver Spring, MD native spent three years as an 8th grade English teacher on the Navajo Nation in Northern Arizona. The indigenous traditions he learned during this time are the inspiration for his Four Directions project. Just as each cardinal direction holds unique characteristics in the Navajo tradition, so do each of the albums in Eli’s ‘Four Directions Project.’ Together, the series imaginatively and intrepidly connects spheres and generations within a body of work that is irresistibly uplifting, emotionally resonant, and down-to-earth authentic.

More Info

Oceanography is the solo project of Oakland, California-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Brian Kelly. He brings a unique pop sensibility to bittersweet songs of heartbreak, loss, and longing, recalling at times The War on Drugs, My Morning Jacket, and Damien Jurado. His literary eye for detail and deceptively powerful voice create moments of catharsis and beauty amid the bleak and mundane. https://www.oceanographymusic.com/ https://oceanography.bandcamp.com/
