"Punk Band" Screening @ Beat Kitchen (8/17)

Back in 2016 director Bradley Pontecore followed punk band Voice of Addiction around the country for four and half weeks documenting what it means to be a touring punk band. The result is a new documentary called “Punk Band”.

There will be a screening of the movie at Beat Kitchen on August 17th followed by a concert featuring Voice of Addition, Blood People, Vortis, and Blind Adam and the Federal League.

   

The Footlight District @ Chop Shop (8/18)

Last year The Footlight District released their self-titled debut album filled with blues drenched garage rock. This is a family band consisting of Sarah, Gracie, Faith, Hannah & Cecil Scarbrough. The band has a raw and honest approach both in sound and lyrics that is compelling and endearing. They have been touring around the midwest consistently and are hopefully working on some new music.

You can catch The Footlight District at Chop Shop on August 18th with Little Boy Jr., The Punch, and Los Black Dogs.

   

Varsity “A Friend Named Paul” Video

Varsity has released an amazing new video for their single “A Friend Named Paul”. The track is taken from their latest LP, Parallel Person, which was released back in April via Babe City.

You can catch Varsity on August 31st at Beat Kitchen with LVL UP and Fran.

   

Blaqrock

Blaqrock released the first single, “Shutter Speed”, from their debut album "No Love for Blaqkid” (out August 5th) last month. Blaqrock merges the world of rap and rock in a way that hasn’t really been done before. This is not the Judgement Night Soundtrack, and not Limp Bizkit. This is the original collaboration of Gardner Mcfadden III (Vocals), Daniel Delgado (Drums), Myles Bacon (Guitar) and Mike Ewers (Bass Guitar).

You can help Blaqrock celebrate the release of the album on August 19th at Reggie’s as part of the Summer Scorcher Event with The Aviators, STRLING and more.

   

Campdogzz “Southern”

Campdogzz have released a third single, “Southern”, from their new album In Rounds which is out today via 15 Passenger. This is gritty indie rock of Mike Russell, Jess Price, Nicholas Enderle , Andrew Rolfsen, and Matt Evert. On “Southern” the power of Jess’ vocals really shines through creating the perfect breezy end of summer song.

You can catch Campdogzz at Hungry Brain tomorrow night, August 4th, with Wet Mouth.
