Creeper Lagoon
Sharky Laguna
Rachel Lastimosa
Miles Tuffl

-from San Francisco, CA
-Creeper Lagoon are reuniting for the 25th anniversary of San Francisco's Noise Pop Music and Arts Festival in February! The indie troupe emerged in the early 1990s from Cincinnati and San Francisco's underground music scene with a stream of influential indie releases and grew to alt.rock fame with their excellent 2001 album "Take Back the Universe and Give Me Yesterday" before disbanding. (Dig the video for "Wrecking Ball" from that album!)

Peggy Honeywell
Claire Rojas
-from Philadelphia, PA/San Francisco, CA

-Peggy Honeywell is the alter ego of renowned artist Claire Rojas. She is from Philly, began her career in 1999. Self taught, and produced. But recorded in SF by the great Monte Vallier at ruminator audio for the past 20 years.  Songs of loss, love and hope.

Fake Your Own Death
Terry Ashkinos - Vocals/Guitar, Scott Eberhardt - Drums, Adrian McCullough - Bass
-from San Francisco, CA

-"Fake Your Own Death played Friday night and I couldn't have been more impressed. The music is a mix of Joy Division, Love and Rockets and The National with brief moments of Interpol thrown in. They debuted songs from their forthcoming album to a sizable crowd Friday, which was really great to see...My favorite track by FYOD sounds like it would fit really well on "Alligator" by The National. "Few Plus One" is a simple track, but one that packs a serious punch. And with lyrics like "Burning airplane/ which way to crash/ no message, no map/ you take the keys man, I'll hide the stash...", you can see quickly the comparison to The National, at least lyrically, is pretty spot on. Another sweet track is the rocker "Mouth to Speak" which features the line "Your face, my fist...I haven't been this excited about a local group in quite some time. Get to know them." (Spinning Platters)

FYOD has been compared to bands like Echo and the Bunnymen, Sonic Youth and Jesus and Mary Chain by both local and national press.

FYOD has played with bands like The Warlocks, Blood Red Shoes, Film School, White Denim, Bob Mould and Gang of Four.

Luke Sweeney
Luke Sweeney
-from San Francisco, CA

-San Francisco singer, songwriter, and guitarist Luke Sweeney picks up a variety of stylings from forebearers such as Marc Bolan, Al Green, and Stephen Malkmus like pavement bubblegum to build a bridge into new, unforged sonic territories of psychedelic pop. Meanwhile, the road ahead is laden with a palpable substance in the desperate characters, hapless escape artists, hopeless romantics, and spiritual imagery of his songs. Sweeney has recorded two critically acclaimed albums over the past three years: his 2013 self-released debut ‘Ether Ore’ gained praises for its “distinctly handcrafted feel” and “melodies that feel like opiates for the soul” (SF Chronicle), while his 2014 studio follow-up ‘Adventure:Us’ (Aerobic International) expanded into “far-reaching pop, psychedelic, and classic-rock realms with humor and irreverence—both calling cards of Sweeney's songwriting” (Portland Mercury). In between debuts at Noise Pop, CMJ, SXSW, and other festivals along various West Coast jaunts and U.S. tours, Sweeney has kept his pen sharp, his notebook handy, and the microphone on standby. Among the recordings due to surface in the near future are a limited-edition 7” release with novella via Aerobic International, and a full-length follow-up with ‘Adventure:Us’ producer Robin MacMillan and Sweeney’s band of accomplished players. - Tanner Grey, 2016
