Rubblebucket, Landlady, NGHT HCKLRS
In March 2008 Rubblebucket self-released their debut album, "Rose's Dream" under the name Rubblebucket Orchestra and began to tour full-time.

In 2009 the band embarked on three national tours and was featured in Relix Magazine's "On The Verge: 5 Artists You Should Know." Additionally they were chosen by SPIN Magazine as a "Must-hear artist from the 2009 CMJs." On October 13 they released their second studio album, self-titled, and officially changed their name to Rubblebucket. In December they won a Boston Music Award for Live Act of the Year.

In March 2010 Rubblebucket relocated to Brooklyn, NY and continued to tour nationally through the summer with appearances at festivals such as High Sierra, All Good Music Festival, and the Liberate Music and Dance Festival. On October 19, 2010 they released their Triangular Daisies EP which included a cover of the Beatles' "Michelle" which Paste Magazine named on their list of 50 Greatest Beatles Covers of All Time.

In Spring 2011 Rubblebucket released their third full length album Omega La La. It was recorded at DFA studios and produced by Eric Broucek (LCD Soundsystem, !!!, Holy Ghost!) & mastered by Joe Lambert (Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors, Herbie Hancock). On April 4, 2011 the band released it as a free download via their website preceding an official physical release on June 21 through MRI Distribution.

The Tontons w/ Ume, Buckamore, -Us.
When a band's name is inspired by Star Wars you just don't expect the group behind it to be The Tontons – they're far too ‘cool' for that. The Houston, TX rising kings (and queen) of indie rock are out to prove they can be both – creators of music that both pop fans and hipsters adore, and also loyal friends who truly love making music together and never shy away from experiences and vulnerabilities that shaped their beginnings. A culmination of years on the road, The Tontons are proud to release their forthcoming LP, Make Out King and Other Stories of Love on February 18th. The new album was produced and mixed by Dave Boyle (Black Joe Lewis, Okkervil River, Robert Plant) at Austin's ChurchHouse Studios and features 11-tracks of Asli Omar's old-soul vocals that heave the band's lyrics forward with empowering, sultry and emotional force. Flanking her is bassist Tom Nguyen, armed with a nimble rumble that forms the sturdy dermis of the band. Brothers Adam and Justin Martinez's titanic guitar-and-drum attack are the dance-ready glue. Omar's voice seems to melt like butter into the cracks of the Earth that the foursome create.

Born Of Osiris, Thy Art Is Murder, Betraying The Martyrs, Within The Ruins
Some bands roll with the tide, while others generate it. Exhuming technically proficient and progressive metal, BORN OF OSIRIS exerted a seismic impact on heavy music with its trend-setting 2007 debut The New Reign only to shake things up even more on The Discovery in 2011. However, once again, the critically acclaimed Chicago six-piece will be setting a new paradigm with its highly anticipated fourth full-length album for Sumerian Records.
Teaming up with acclaimed producers Joey Sturgis [The Devil Wears Prada, Emmure] and Nick Sampson, the group is primed to explode like never before, manipulating 6-string and 7-string guitars on the same recording diversifying their writing and pushing their boundaries further than ever before.
Lee McKinney (guitars) states: "We were more focused for the writing of this record than any of our previous efforts. We've had 2+ years to write, critique, adjust and learn these songs, which is just something we haven't had in the past with our intense touring schedule. All of us living together and constantly feeding off eachother's energy made for the best and most focused BORN OF OSIRIS album to date.
BORN OF OSIRIS are mature well beyond their years and this dynamic progressive juggernaut has now perfectly honed all of their collective talents to create what will soon be a pinnacle release for the metal genre. They'll be showcasing their talents to the masses at the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival all summer long, reaching yet another plateau in their already stellar career.

All Them Witches, Adam Faucett & The Tall Grass
Unexplained phenomena of all kinds can be attributed to magic. Music is among those marvels. When a group of unrelated individuals of different backgrounds gets together and locks into a sonic unity, there must be some sort of mysticism at work. That's the only way to properly explain it. The members of Nashville's All Them Witches would agree too. That energy even courses through their moniker, which unsurprisingly comes from Roman Polanski's 1968 masterpiece Rosemary's Baby.
"The name can be interpreted in many different ways," explains singer and bassist Michael Parks, Jr. "It could be a person's view on what the forces of good and evil are or even how we interact with each other as human beings. There's a little bit of witchcraft in everybody's life. Just waking up is pretty magical—you're alive another day. In terms of the music, we're so loose, and that's where the magic comes from. There's no controlling factor. We do exactly what comes naturally. We go in a room without any idea about what will happen, get in the groove, and it works. That's supernatural."
All Them Witches began conjuring up music together in 2012. Foregoing theater school to focus on songwriting, Parks traded New Mexico for Nashville at 19-years-old. The Shreveport, Louisiana native met drummer Robby Staebler while the two shared a shift at a "corporate hippie store". Robby showed Parks some music he and guitarist Ben McLeod had written, and it inspired the singer to jam—which he adds, "I usually never do. It made sense though".
Adding Robby's longtime friend Allan Van Cleave to the fold on Fender Rhodes, All Them Witches cut their debut Our Mother Electricity. Almost immediately after, they began working on its follow-up 2013's Lightning At The Door. Recorded live in a matter of days with producer and engineer Andy Putnam, the boys tapped into a distinct energy, mustering bluesy soul, Southern swagger, and thunderous hard rock all at once.
"We tracked everything live in the same room," says Parks. "We got a lot of bleed from the mics and the amps being together. Everything felt organic. You get us untainted on the record."
The first single "When God Comes Back" swings from a Delta-dipped groove into a striking riff juxtaposed with Parks' transfixing delivery. It's as hypnotic as it is heavy.
"Sometimes, I get visions, for lack of a better word, that lead to songs," the frontman admits. "I'll be doing a mundane task at work, walking somewhere in the woods, or driving, and I'll get these narrative flashes in my head. Personal experiences play into those narratives. This song is about our egos coming to break us down and destroy everything. We try to govern each other and turn the only landscape we have to live in into a parking lot. There's no room for anybody. So, when God comes back, he's going to be really mad."
Elsewhere on the album, one story connects the expansive and entrancing "The Marriage of Coyote Woman" and "The Death of Coyote Woman". The tracks twirl through rustic instrumentation and muscular distortion before building into a wild climax.
"It's a two-part song that follows one character in my brain that has its own trials and tribulations to go through," Parks goes on. "It also discusses how and where I grew up. It's a hodgepodge, and the lyrics and music just came to me while I was driving."
Given their powerful and potent psychedelic sound, All Them Witches has shared the stage with everybody from punk luminaries Broncho to the buzzing Windhand. They've also rocked at WRLT's weekly live series "Nashville Sunset", played the station's Live On The Green and appeared at the Scion Rock Fest.
"We can take so many different paths," he adds. "The music is ever-shifting. None of us grew up listening to the same music. In Louisiana, I heard a lot of ZZ Top and Blues band. Allan was raised on classical, almost exclusively. Robby and Ben listened to a ton of Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. When we came together, it simply works."
Ultimately, everything comes back to that certain magic for All Them Witches. "Not to sound too much like hippie, but I hope everybody can ride our vibe," Parks leaves off. "We're very simple people doing something we really love. We have such a short amount of time on this earth. Everybody should be doing what they love. If there's a message here, it's that."

Mansions On The Moon, Night Drive
Los Angeles (via Virginia Beach) chillwave band Mansions on the Moon was formed by Ben Hazlegrove (keyboards), Jeff Maccora (bass), Lane Shaw (drums), and Ted Wendler (guitar, vocals). Hazlegrove and Shaw were previously in the jazz-funk/fusion-inspired electronic act Pnuma Trio. The band debuted in 2010 with a mixtape, Paradise Falls, presented by Benzi and Diplo. The following year, the band toured as the opening act on Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller's Green Carpet Tour. Lightyears, an EP executive produced by Pharrell Williams, was released in 2012, highlighted by "Leaves Fall," a melodic amalgamation of soft rock and dream pop. ~ Andy Kellman

In 2013, Il Sogno del Marinaio released their debut album, Busta Gialla, which showcased the band's mix of punk, noise rock, and jazz influences. ~ Matt Collar

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Young Girls
With their wall-of-fuzz guitar stylings and sugary pop underpinnings, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart nodded to any number of old-school indie pop and shoegaze acts, most notably Black Tambourine and My Bloody Valentine. New York-based musicians Alex Naidus (bass), Kip Berman (guitar/vocals), Kurt Feldman (drums), and Peggy Wang (keyboards/vocals) came together to form the Pains of Being Pure at Heart in 2007. The band recorded a few tracks soon after forming, which were released as a self-titled 3" CD-R on Cloudberry Records. A self-titled EP followed soon after for Painbow. During 2008 the band released a number of limited-edition split singles on Atomic Beat Records and Slumberland. Their first album, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, was released in February of 2009 on Slumberland, and the good reviews and positive press (including a spot on Late Night with Carson Daly) made them one of the most talked-about bands of early 2009. After the release of the summer 2010 single Say No to Love, legendary producers Flood (Smashing Pumpkins) and Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine) were hired to give the band a slicker, more powerful sound. The resulting album, Belong, was released by Slumberland in March of 2011. After touring their second album, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart returned to the U.S. and Berman began writing new material for their third album. With the departure of original keyboardist Peggy Wang and bassist Alex Naidus, Berman brought together a refreshed line-up -- which featured A Sunny Day in Glasgow's Jen Goma and brass player Kelly Pratt alongside Feldman -- to record the album with Andy Savours (My Bloody Valentine, Sigur Rós). The resulting Days of Abandon was released by their new label, Yebo Music, in 2014. ~ Margaret Reges

Broncho, Low Litas, CactusCats
BRONCHO and Dine Alone Records are thrilled to announce the release of Just Enough Hip To Be Woman by sharing the album's first single, "Class Historian." BRONCHO will also set out on a 30-date North American tour later this summer that will include dates with Brand New and stops at Riot Fest in Toronto and Chicago alongside The National, The Cure, Weezer, City and Colour and Jane's Addiction.

Just Enough Hip To Be Woman is a bold step forward for BRONCHO. Though it certainly bears the hallmarks of their previous work — fuzzy, guitar-driven rock – the production and energy of the record moves into decidedly sleeker and decidedly more new wave directions (think Cheap Trick meets the Drive soundtrack meets every great song from Fast Times at Ridgemont High meets the greatest after-hours party you've never been to). Tracks like "Stay Loose," "NC-17" and "What" are the kind of pop-rock that could have easily been beamed in from the same universe that gave rise to The Cars (or a looser version of The Strokes), while the album's first single, "Class Historian" — with its unstoppable "do do do do" vocal refrain is the kind of song that seems scientifically engineered to stick in your brain forever and is arguably best played loudly over a car stereo with the windows down and your long hair blowing in the breeze. Clocking in at just more than 30 minutes, the eleven tracks on the new record are a potent statement of intent: an effortless sounding rock record that dips its toe into a variety of different styles without ever succumbing to any of them.

The Revivalists, The London Souls
A group of roots rock iconoclasts who call New Orleans home, the Revivalists formed in 2007 and wound up gaining traction in the early years of the next decade, with their second album, City of Sound, appearing on the Billboard charts upon its re-release from Wind-Up Records in the spring of 2014.

Vocalist David Shaw, guitarist Zack Feinberg, pedal steel player Ed Williams, bassist George Gekas, drummer Andrew Campanelli, saxophonist Rob Ingraham, and keyboardist/trumpeter Michael Girardot became known for their amalgam of rock, R&B, soul, country, and funk in New Orleans in the closing days of the 2000s, releasing an eponymous EP in 2008. Two years later, the full-length Vital Signs appeared and they began getting good reviews for their opening sets for the Rebirth Brass Band along with their constant touring and festival appearances. A second album produced by Ben Ellman called City of Sound appeared independently in 2012. In 2013, they signed with Wind-Up Records and set out to record their third album. In the meantime, Wind-Up reissued City of Sound in the spring of 2014 and it wound up hitting the lower reaches of the Billboard 200. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

J. Roddy Walston & The Business, Fly Golden Eagle
Specializing in a classic-sounding Southern rock/Americana style that emphasizes songs and danceable kinetics over empty hipness and trendy pop gimmicks, J. Roddy Walston and the Business formed in Cleveland, Tennessee in 2002, moving north to Baltimore, Maryland two years later in 2004. After a couple of lineup changes, the band solidified as a classic rock four-piece with J. Roddy Walston handling lead vocals (as well as playing guitar and piano), Billy Gordon on guitar and additional vocals, Logan Davis on bass, and Steve Colmus on drums. J. Roddy Walston and the Business' live shows have garnered them a large following wherever they play or tour. The band released an EP, LMNEP, in 2005, following it with a self-released full-length, Hail Mega Boys, in 2007. Another short-form release, Digital EP, arrived in June of 2010, with a self-titled full-length album, J. Roddy Walston and the Business, appearing from Vagrant Records a month later. A third full-length studio album, Essential Tremors, arrived in the fall of 2013. ~ Steve Leggett

K.Flay, Night Riots, Yung Slutty
An artist who quickly evolved from parody to indie, Chicago-born rapper K. Flay first grabbed the mike while a student at Stanford University in California. It was the frivolous topics and misogynistic lyrics she saw in mainstream rap that first drove her to record a parody of the genre, but she was surprised by both her talent and how much she enjoyed recording. She spent the rest of the year recording and writing, spent her sophomore year performing, and in her junior year, she dropped her debut album, 2004's Suburban Rap Queen. Five years later, her second effort, Mashed Potatoes, appeared with backing tracks that were more electro- and indie-oriented, a style that remained in place for 2011's I Stopped Caring in '96. In 2013, she made her major-label debut with the What If It Is EP on RCA. ~ David Jeffries

Shovels & Rope, Willie Watson
Charleston, South Carolina-based indie folk duo Shovels & Rope consists of married singer/songwriters Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst. Like Trent, who also played with the indie rock band the Films, Hearst had spent the years prior pursuing a solo career, utilizing her raw yet melodious and expressive voice to deliver a handful of albums, one of which landed a single, "Hell's Bells," in the 2010 season of True Blood. Inspired by the likes of Woody Guthrie, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan, the Cramps, and the soulful harmonies of Johnny Cash and June Carter, the pair provided tour support for like-minded artists such as Justin Townes Earle, Hayes Carll, and the Felice Brothers before heading into the studio to lay down the tracks for their debut. The resulting O' Be Joyful, which channeled country, bluegrass, and blues through a nervy, indie rock prism was released in 2012. ~ James Christopher Monger

Tera Melos, By The End Of Tonight, Sunrise And Ammunition
Melding the aggression of punk with the technical intricacies of prog rock, Tera Melos use jerky shifts in time signatures and disjointed guitar noodling bearing a close resemblance to Don Caballero and Hella. Like their counterparts in complicated rock, finger-tapped guitar parts are the centerpiece, complemented by angular bass riffs and splintered spazz-jazz drumming, but contrasting dynamics are a bigger focus of the band's songs, with ambient electronics and sparse vocal lines occasionally incorporated into the interludes to offset some of the more convoluted and noisier sections. Following stints in hardcore projects No Regard, Hoods, and Stabbed in the Throat, guitarist Nick Reinhart, drummer Jeff Worms, and bassist Nate Latona started Tera Melos in 2004. Months after forming, they started playing shows, making an immediate impact on the Sacramento live circuit with chaotic live performances that demonstrated their ability to play while doing cartwheels, guitar stands, and amp flips. Their first album, Tera Melos, was self-released in 2005. Heavy touring followed and, exhausted by life on the road, Worms left the band to settle down shortly after recording the Drugs to the Dear Youth EP. Vince Rogers came in as a replacement drummer, touring continued, and the band found solace in the roster of Sargent House, home of similar-minded artists These Arms Are Snakes and Maps & Atlases. Drugs to the Dear Youth was re-released on CD that year, and a five-song split with By the End of Tonight followed, alongside extensive U.S. touring with Heavy Heavy Low Low and the Fall of Troy. Drummer John Clardy replaced Rogers before the arrival of their 2010 album, Patagonian Rats. The band's next record, X'ed Out, took a more direct approach and was released on Sargent House in 2013. ~ Jason Lymangrover

Pegstar Halloween Party w/ Gogol Bordello
JUST ANNOUNCED - Costume After Show Party featuring DJ set by Eugene of Gogol Bordello!
- Everyone with costume gets a drink ticket.
- Top 3 costumes will get to meet Eugene from the band.
After the show in The Green Room at Warehouse Live.

Join us for The Pegstar Halloween Show with Gogol Bordello at Warehouse Live October 31st.

Combining elements of punk, Gypsy music, and Brecht-ian cabaret, Gogol Bordello tell the story of New York's immigrant diaspora through debauchery, humor, and surreal costumes. Leader and singer Eugene Hütz's taste in music was spun out of black market tapes of the Birthday Party and Einstürzande Neubauten in his native Ukraine. After being evacuated to western Ukraine in 1986 following the Chernobyl disaster, Hütz became enamored of the mystical, outsider qualities of Gypsy music. Living as a refugee in Poland, Hungary, Austria, and Italy before moving to the United States in 1993, he experienced life as an outsider himself. After arriving in New York, he teamed up with guitarist Vlad Solofar and squeezebox player Sasha Kazatchkoff. American Eliot Fergusen added a strong rock sound on the drums and the band was also augmented by Sergey Rjabtzev on fiddle, a former theater director from Moscow whose past experience would prove helpful in the future in crafting Gogol Bordello's bizarre stage shows (like one that tells the story of superpowered immigrant Ukrainian vampires).

The group's early gigs involved playing straight Gypsy music at Russian weddings, but their music soon evolved into the hyper-kinetic explosions that earned them a solid following among New York's downtown hipsters. The band issued a single in 1999 entitled When the Trickster Comes A-Pokin', quickly followed by their debut full-length, Voi-La Intruder, which was produced by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds drummer Jim Sclavunos. Solofar and Kazatchkoff were replaced by accordionist Yuri Lemeshev, who hails from the Russian island of Sakhalin, and two Israelis, guitarist Oren Kaplan and saxophonist Ori Kaplan, who despite their similar names aren't related. Hütz helped bolster the band's popularity by becoming somewhat of a celebrity in the downtown scene, in part fueled by his Thursday night DJ gigs at Bulgarian club/restaurant/bar Mehanata, where he played Ukrainian, Gypsy, rai, and flamenco music for a crowd of artists, models, Ukrainians, Russians, Gypsies, and Bulgarians with tendencies toward exuberant dancing and smashing plates.

In the spring of 2002, Gogol Bordello embarked on a European tour and performed as part of the Whitney Biennial, bringing their music to a whole new audience. Voi-La Intruder came out around that same time, followed that fall by another album, Multi Kontra Culti vs. Irony. The East Infection EP came out in March 2005 before Gogol Bordello made their Side One Dummy debut that August with the aptly titled Gypsy Punks. By this point, though the band's cast no longer included Ori Kaplan, it did boast bassist Rea Mochiach and dancers/percussionists Pam Racine and Elizabeth Sun. Aside from leading the band, Hütz also lent his hand to acting when he was cast as Alex in 2005's Everything Is Illuminated (based on the critically acclaimed book) after Gogol Bordello attracted the attention of the film's producer.

The bandmembers soon got to work on their next album, however, switching to bass player Tommy Gobena and utilizing the talents of producer Victor Van Vugt to help them craft their fourth full-length, Super Taranta! Wildly praised by critics, who pasted the album all over their year-end lists, Super Taranta! (as well as the band's increasingly physical live shows) made them indie rock heroes. Live from Axis Mundi was released in 2009, followed by the group's Rick Rubin-produced fifth studio offering, Trans-Continental Hustle, for Sony in 2010. Gogol Bordello signed with Dave Matthews' ATO in 2012, and issued Pura Vida Conspiracy, their debut offering for the label, in the summer of 2013. ~ Stacia Proefrock
