More About Lightmare

Lightmare is a six-person soul-punk arrangement out of Washington, D.C. making songs about love, death, and revolution, overlapping and in any order. Smooth and sharp, warm and galvanizing, punchy, political and personal. Their set is guaranteed to get your body moving and your feelings flowing.

More About North by North

Formed in 2012, North by North is the rock & roll dream of two weirdos from Chicago. Their music has been forged through years of teen angst, twenty-something alienation, sleeping in vans and living on a stage. Anchored by syrupy hooks, roaring guitar and bombastic drums, North by North produces a huge sound that has captivated thousands of people over hundreds of performances and festivals across three countries. Since 2016, Nate Girard (guitar, vocals) and Kendra Blank (drums) have performed at over 800 shows throughout the US, Canada and UK.

More About KINDA EVIL

In the Spring of 2022, KINDA EVIL rose from the ashes of DC band Dad Legs – Amanda Dove (vocals & guitar), Nolan (guitar), and Mason Henry (bass) – with the addition of heavy artillery drummer Christopher Peli. Weaving a darkly potent blend of blues, garage, punk, and rock & roll, this four-piece gets the blood pumping with their electrifying stage presence, big hooks, soaring guitars, and explosive grooves, appealing to fans of The Dead Weather, Priests, and All Them Witches.

Doldrums Head on Tour With Unknown Mortal Orchestra & Grimes & Bear in Heaven & Blouse


Indie wonder boy Doldrums is gearing up for the tour of the Summer. Sharing the stage with such acts as Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Grimes, Bear in Heaven and Blouses, there is no stopping him. For a guy who doesn’t even have his first LP under his belt yet, his rise to success has definitely become an interesting one. Staring in 2010, Doldrums began by posting videos and designing websites by fictional bands under a number of pseudonyms, ‘Doldrums’ being the one that he had settled on. Everything seemed to take off from there as he started to gain attention in Toronto with his performances at Everlasting Super Joy. Alongside his studio and DIY venue that he co-runs with DD/MM/YYYY, he also known for his involvement with flash parties in abandoned spaces. 2010 also saw the release of several of 7″s including a split with DD/MM/YYYY and a VHS mixtape of his own music videos. We are literally at the edge of our seats to hear what Doldrums is up to next, but in the meantime, take a look at the massive tour dates that he has below with some of the hottest names in music right now. Doldrums also just dropped his newest single, “Egypt” on Pitchfork. Take a listen to it HERE.
