ABOUT THE BANDS:

____Tom Barrett & The Cuts____:

Jim Testa describes, “Barrett – big, broad, imposing, hirsute – may look like a lumberjack on a bender, but he boasts a surprisingly fragile and tender voice. In his previous bands Overlake and Wave, the vocals tended to be buried under layers of reverb and feedback, in the style of the British shoegaze bands of the ‘80s and ‘90s. But on “051480,” the solo album recorded at home on his iPhone during the pandemic last year, Barrett found the confidence to let his voice stand on its own” ( _The Jersey Journal_)

____J Hacha De Zola____ 

“A wild man in the vein of such fire breathing artists like Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and Captain Beefheart.” — @Pastemagazine

___Holy Tunics____

A spark of guitar jingle jangle mr tambourine jam

____AlphaRabbit____

“Alpha Rabbit is where it’s at ! They are 3 super talented musicians who really know how to rock your socks off Live ! Their new album is Hot …they are truly a unique band unlike anyone I’ve ever seen ! And I cant wait to see what they do Next !!!!!” (Matt Revesz recommends Alpha Rabbit.)

“I love Alpha Rabbit – they are such an amazing group to see live especially as they switch instruments and vocals inbetween songs (and sometimes during). Their newest EP Follow The Northern Light is absolutely perfect. I look forward to seeing them again live soon.” (Ryan McLelland recommends Alpha Rabbit.)

“You want some straight FIRE rock and roll? THIS IS IT!” (Nick Twist recommends Alpha Rabbit.)

____50 ft. Furies____

“If you take a little bit of Bikini Kill and mix it with the political lyrics of NOFX, Rage Against The Machine and big helping of AOC and Ruth Bader Ginsberg, you begin to approximate 50 Ft. Furies. The band born in Jersey City and became a staple of shows at Pet Shop, White Eagle Hall & FM where they blew the roof off the place on many occasions. They sure don’t mince words or say anything other than exactly what it is on their minds.” (_Blood Makes Noise_)

____Spud Cannon____

No gimmicks! No bull!

____Black Flamingos____

“Play Speedway and Other Hits” OUT NOW streaming & limited “Racing Orange” vinyl from @hitiderecordings 🟠🏁

____Psilocybe____

This metal quartet uses pop structures, melds together get down grooves with ruthless melodies, and adds a dash of punk spunk.
