Spud Cannon  
-from Poughkeepsie/Brooklyn, NY
-Beginning at Vassar College in the fall of 2016, the story of Spud Cannon charts the emotional journey of finding oneself with vignettes of rock and roll highs and lows interspersed throughout. All, mostly, before the quintet of Meg Matthews (lead vox), Jackson Walker Lewis (guitar), Ari Bowe (keys), Lucy Horgan (bass) and Benjamin Scharf (drums) could buy a drink (legally).

Spud Cannon’s forthcoming third full-length, "Good Kids Make Bad Apples," bristles with an immediacy inspired in-part by all-night, definitely-allowed recording sessions at the Vassar squash courts. Each song recorded in the Wall of Sound-style court are pure takes capturing the energy of the Spud Cannon live experience in its purest form to date.

Returning from a stressful tour that nearly broke them apart for good, the album’s nine songs find the band locked in on the other side of turmoil stronger than ever. Reflections on relationships, knowing one’s worth, or simply just wanting to have a good time are all spun through Spud Cannon’s infectious rock sound. Like a good friend who knows exactly how to cheer you up or clock an ex from across the room and steer you away, "Good Kids Make Bad Apples" is a hand on the shoulder in the times that led you to yourself.

Spud Buddy
-from San Francisco, CA
-Like many of their heroes before them, San Francisco, CA band Spud Buddy came into being as a backing band. They spent a year supporting country singer-songwriter Margo Cilker before splitting off a year ago to play their own brand of twangy Bay Area rock n’ roll. Drawing on a wide range of influences spanning from sixties rock n’ roll to early aughts pop-punk, guitarists Simon Hochberg and Alex Rosenblatt, bassist Phil Thorneycroft, and drummer Eli Popuch dial in the perfect balance of contrasts -- dreamy but gritty, worried but irreverent -- with one goal in mind: be the tightest, least pretentious, most fun band they can.

Local Bylaws
-from San Francisco, CA
-Local Bylaws is a post-punk four-piece from San Francisco. Against the bleak and lonely landscape of February 2021, they met online looking for kindred spirits and creative outlets. As it turned out, they were all raised on similar pop-punk, ska, and alternative music, from Rancid, No Doubt, and NOFX, to Weezer, the Toadies, and Blink-182. And outside of music, they had something else in common: they were all union workers (in IBEW, the electricians' union, SAG-AFTRA, the actors' union, and UBC, the carpenters' union)...hence the name, Local Bylaws.

​In April 2022, they released their first EP, Working Agreement, and will be in the studio soon to record a full-length album.
