Harry And The Potters  
Paul and Joe DeGeorge
-from Norwood, MA

-This band plays songs about books.

Harry and the Potters are the first wizard rock band. Since 2002, they have played over 800 shows in libraries, rock clubs, art spaces, bookstores, basements, and pizza places all over the world.
The band consists of brothers, Joe and Paul DeGeorge. They also helped co-found the Harry Potter Alliance, were profiled in the 2008 documentary We Are Wizards, and appear on a Trivial Pursuit card in Sweden.

Giggle Party  
Aaron - Guitar & Vocals
Jason- Bass & Vocals
Kat- Keyboards & Vocals
-from San Francisco, CA

-Somewhere between a Brad Neely comic and Deerhoof, Giggle Party is like a hyperactive child with a guitar in his hand and an empty Adderall prescription. The San Francisco based surrealist pop project is a manic explosion of warm fuzzy feelings and raucous fun, channeled live with astounding stage presence and an absurdly good time.

-from San Francisco, CA
-Jenna, Rebecca, Shannon, and Mai make up SOAR. They're members of joyride!, Watercolor Paintings, Void Boys, Dreamspoiler and a bunch of other bands.

SOAR formed in the summer of 2015 after its members, who had all previously fronted their own bands, came together to start a project that was more collaborative in nature. Like a set of analytical relations, SOAR combines the best parts each persons' perspective and style to create a sound all their own. With rotating lyricists, four-part harmonies, and shared songwriting, SOAR's catalogue evokes a wide scope of sounds and sentiments that can't be pinned down to any one genre. Mirrored by the name of their debut full length, "dark/gold," out on Father/Daughter Records and Salinas Records, SOAR strikes a balance between something heavy and opaque, something melodic and bright, something ultimately unyielding.

Flying Fish Cove  
Dena Zilber
Jake Jones
Sean Canfield
Chris McFarlane
-from Seattle, WA

-Flying Fish Cove is a painted dream of poetic indie pop from Seattle, WA. A band that invokes the spirits of Heavenly, Teenage Fanclub, and The Pastels. The fierce interiority, magical escapism, and mythical imaginaria that define singer-songwriter Dena Zilber's intricate and intuitive visual style reveal themselves in the band's transcendent patchwork of jangling ballads. Dena's poignant vocals and propulsive rhythm guitar are accompanied by lead guitarist Jake Jones, bassist Sean Canfield, and drummer Jacob Jaffe.

It is the vast mountain ranges, sublime greenery, and vibrant art scene of Seattle that inform the collaborative ethos of Flying Fish Cove's latest album, At Moonset. A rosy testament to summer love, "Dangerous Words" exalts the abundance of fruit trees lining the streets of the Emerald City, while the bittersweet "Home Sweet Home" lambasts its gentrification with a rare sense of personal and political responsibility. Vivid Tove Jansson-esque motifs dart through the album, from the off-kilter Muzzy-inspired "Bob and Sylvie," to the travails of Pippi Longstocking in "Johnny Paper," to the somber, watercolor dreaminess of "Belladonna" (a reference to the arresting 1973 psychedelic film Belladonna of Sadness). The album's tour de force "Manticore" weaves encounters with mythical monsters into the everyday confrontations with trauma, and its accompanying video celebrates the community that makes recovery possible.

Flutes, violins, bells, and omnichords thread their way through the album's cosmic tapestry. Friends from near and far contribute voices to this polymorphous record including Greta Kline (of Frankie Cosmos), Jade Tcimpidis (of iji), and Lydia Brambila (singer-songwriter from Athens, GA).

Flying Fish Cove transmutes heartache, exhaustion, and anxiety into shimmering expressions of faith in the power of joy, friendship, and the labor of making art, and their latest album is ultimately a testament to the transformative and collective potential of the Seattle art scene.
