Frenchy and the Punk:
Multi-cultural genre-bending Duo Frenchy and the Punk based in NY. Hardcore punk veteran guitarist Scott Helland (bassist of Deep Wound - with J Mascis and Lou Barlow, Outpatients) and French-born singer/percussionist Samantha Stephenson pound out Cabaret Folk Rock. Helland's signature rhythmic and melodic guitar looping style creating a driving and expansive sonic landscape that perfectly blends with Stephenson's powerful vocals and percussion. "Top 25 Dynamic Duos" Yahoo Music Blog / "Beautifully evolved from the Punk scene" NPR / “stripped-down DIY energy, tribal rhythms, and earthy drama” Chronogram / www.frenchyandthepunk.com

The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing:
The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing hail from London, UK. They sing loud punk rock songs about the Victorian era, and have been gleefully rubbing the face of present day Britain in the rotten corpse of its past since 2008, in the hope that it will learn from its mistakes (it hasn’t). “Corusatingly loud and extremely funny” - The Guardian / “If you are drawn into their world, you will appreciate how special TMTWNBBFN are.” - Uber Rock / “Probably the maddest, most original punk band around”- Louder Than War /
“Pulsating with fiery punk fury”- Vive Le Rock / www.blamedfornothing.com

Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys:
The Army of Broken Toys's stage show exorcises personal tragedies and cleaves its audience's hearts with rollicking apocalyptic waltzes and powerful rock ballads that seem to emerge from under their ringmaster Walter Sickert’s top hat. It offers a unique rock club run-away to the circus experience. “An immersive performance experience.” —Social Caroline / “MultimediaBOOYAH!!! “ –NE Theatre Geek /
"With the dancers, singers, instruments, and general zaniness of the set...trust me when I say this band cannot be absorbed via CD. You need to see them live. ” The Noise

Radiator King:
Somewhere between punk and blues – a porch and an alley – lies Radiator King, the performing/recording name of Boston native and Brooklyn based, Adam Silvestri. Established in 2011, Radiator King’s music shows influences from both Dylan and Strummer with a sound described by Boston blog Allston Pudding as something akin to what “Tom Waits locked in a room for a month with nothing but a copy of Springstein’s Nebraska” might produce. Whether alone with a guitar or backed by a band, Radiator King embodies the raw energy of punk, the grit and intricacy of delta blues, and the lyrical potency of folk in “songs that are the sonic equivalent to an old whiskey bar at the end of a dirt road.” www.radiatorkingmusic.com/
