The San Diego quintet Brothers Gow combines rock, funk, jazz and reggae influences with thoughtful lyrics, deep grooves and an ear for improvisation that keeps each show fresh and unique. With more than 500 shows under their belts, this well-seasoned band started off in Flagstaff, AZ, and since moving to Southern California, has developed a more dynamic sound, adding strong vocal harmonies and complex arrangements to their guitar-driven rock. Add to this mix an awe inspiring light show, and you have a recipe for a memorable concert experience.
The more evolved sound of Brothers Gow can be heard in Reflections their 4th studio album, that runs the gamut from arena rock and uptempo dance grooves to more musically and lyrically emotive tracks and some fan-favorite instrumental compositions that showcase Brothers Gow’s tight arrangements.
In addition to their hard work getting people on the dance floor, the band has also demonstrated their commitment to making the world a better place for all of us. The Brothers Gow Foundation for Music Education was launched in 2014, and in its first charitable event raised enough money to put a stringed instrument in all 18 classrooms at OB Elementary (San Diego), and has plans to continue these efforts to support youth and music education.
Tambourelli & Her SuperTrips (Saratoga Springs, NY)
Tambourelli is a soulful lead vocalist with a powerful and captivating presence, reminiscent of Janis Joplin. Together, her band of SuperTrips blend a piano-based indie rock with blues, funk and folk influences, creating a psychedelic vibe that harmonizes beautifully with the alternative music scene.
Tambourelli & Her SuperTrips began their journey when Jacquelyn Ginac and Kyle Rodd decided to embark on this musical adventure in 2014. Busking on the streets of Saratoga Springs, NY with former guitarist, Corey Bennett gave the band the confidence to begin looking for bigger stages and audiences. Ever since, this SuperTroupe has been expanding and reaching new heights as they travel all across the northeast. The SuperTrips have had members come and go throughout the life of the band leaving Jacquelyn and Kyle the remaining original members. In the Spring of 2016, Jake Hyland joined the band on keys and then just a year later Chris Wildy joined as the new drummer. Tambourelli & Her SuperTrips have recently built a modest studio and are working hard to actualize the goals of the band: To make the world a better place through the sensational power of music. #letsboogie...

Eclectic, in philosophical terms, is defined as, “belonging to a class of ancient philosophers who did not belong to any recognized school of thought, but recognized such doctrines as they wished from various schools.” The same could be said for Syracuse’s own Barroom Philosophers, who embody eclecticism in both the scholastic and the literal sense. From the reaches of Jamaican roots reggae and dub, acid-drenched psychedelia, Chess Records’ Chicago blues and Parliament-era funk, Barroom Philosophers bend genres across the spectrum to create a unique, original groove that differs every show.

2017 finds Los Angeles indie pop perennials the black watch releasing their fifteenth album. Fifteen LPs (plus many EPs) in thirty years! Pretty impressive—especially for a band that keeps meaning to put the frosting as it were on a career that, as venerable Jack Rabid of The Big Takeover has observed many-a-time, hasn’t been at all smooth or easy. the gospel according to john, the follow-up to 2015’s Highs & Lows, recorded over the course of eleven months with Rob Campanella (Mystic Braves, Miranda Richards, The Tyde), of The Brian Jonestown Massacre once again producing, is a testimony to songwriter John Andrew Fredrick’s perseverance, and to his dedication to artistic quality and vision—despite himself, despite all of his quixotic threats to quit releasing music and concentrate on his other careers as a novelist and academic. Still, it seems the boy can’t help it; great new guitar-driven songs just… keep coming.
Aside from his prodigious output with the black watch, Fredrick has published no less than four well-received comic/literary novels (the latest of which, Your Caius Aquilla, is a hilarious satire of U.S. imperialism that’s set in ancient Rome) is about to release on Los Angeles’ hot imprint Rare Bird Books a study of the early films of Wes Anderson. “The thing’s got a pretty provocative title—Fucking Innocent: The Early Films of Wes Anderson,” Fredrick observes from his guitar-and-book-filled studio in leafy Echo Park; “The profanity is a quotation from the, in my estimation, greatly underappreciated Bottle Rocket. From Dignan at the end of the film. And it sort of, oxymoronically, encapsulates Anderson’s aesthetic, I think. And in a weird and symbiotic way, mine as well.”
As with his records, Fredrick writes novels and poems and plays and criticism “Because,” he says, “ideas just come. And no one’s stopping me, really. Plus I sort of live for art and music and literature… and tennis. I don’t go out very much anymore. I stay home with my characters and my acoustic guitars and John Lennon-Inspired Epiphone Casino. I’m becoming more and more eccentric, I think. Isn’t that what happens to most people as they go on and on and on? The either become kinda hermetic, as I’ve done, or they start going out all the time—in order to prove they can still party like a sophomore or something.”
Songs and riffs and lyrics wander into Fredrick’s head as he’s motoring up to California Lutheran University, forty-five miles north of Los Angeles, where he now lectures in the English department—as do ideas for books. “I’ve been teaching Anderson’s early films for years and years now—as a way of getting university students, who, we must admit, are much more visually oriented than bookish these days, interested in writing. It’s amazing to me that there hasn’t been a solid exegesis of Anderson’s good movies. He’s so literary, so bookwormy-nerdish, and his taste in music is so 60’s and cool. He’s this internationally celebrated auteur and kook who, in an odd way, has been frightfully neglected.”
As has a certain little Los Angeles dream pop band? One that’s received so much great press—mostly about how they’ve been commercially and perennially ignored—that their press kit’s as big as a small-town phonebook? “Sure,” Fredrick laughs. “It’s a motif now, a riff with reviewers—as in ‘Why isn’t this band better known?’ Well, no one knows. And who cares, really? We really don’t care. We’ve been at it so long that it’s just something we titter about, you know. Some bands were meant to be cultishly cultish. What matters is the work itself. In a way, it’s been better for us to fly under the radar; it’s helped us thrive, somehow. Made us stronger, maybe. That whole Nietzchean thing, you know… ‘Whatever doesn’t kill you… etc.’”
Speaking of killing, the work on the gospel according to john showcases some absolutely killer guitar playing from new TBW member Andy Creighton (who’s on loan from his fine band The World Record). “We’ve had a history of really great, almost virtuosic, guitarists in the group, from violinist/guitarist J’Anna Jacoby (who went on to a soaring career with Rod Stewart) to The Chills’ Steven Schayer to Tyson Cornell to now with Andy. He can do anything , really, with a song. It was such a pleasure to wind him up so to speak and have Rob Campanella just let him do take after take of guitar tracks over the new songs,” Fredrick says. “I think he did an immense job, Andy. The new songs are so dance-y, I think. The first four are, at least. We’re still dancing, you might say. As I mentioned, no one’s preventing us from boogie-ing, from creating things—not even ourselves!”
This tour will see the black watch criss-crossing the country as a duo...
"Active since the mid-‘80s, the Black Watch blends the British and New Zealand indie-pop moods of wistful reverie with the frenetic reactions of the Cure, House of Love, and Echo and the Bunnymen. As with many of its peers, this ensemble continues with its lead singer-songwriter guiding a changing lineup. Spanning 30 years of its discography, John Andrew Fredrick and band return with one of the best albums from this reliably satisfying outfit. Recent releases from the Black Watch tended to linger over delicate moods. These highlighted Fredrick’s introspective lyrics. Given his career as an English professor specializing in literature of at least two centuries ago, these meet exacting standards. Now, the archly and typically playfully titled The Gospel According to John preaches assertive vocals over intense guitars. Reminiscent of post-punk sounds in Liverpool and Down Under, these well-sequenced eight tracks dash past vividly." - Pop Matters... See MoreSee Less
BMSM might be one of my favorite bands on the planet. With a horn section to kill for, a drummer that can put me in a beat coma instantly, and a knack for hitting grooves in a pantsless stride, they aren't easy to ignore,” writes Joel Frieders of SYFFAL.com and he’s not kidding. For a band without a lead singer, Big Mean Sound Machine has character in spades. When assembled from a selection of the finest, well-lubricated, musically brilliant human components, the final result is the aural equivalent of positive feeling, “...the embodiment of feeling… delicious,” writes Frieders. People dance when a rhythm moves them, and there’s no defying instinct when Big Mean Sound Machine is on stage. Anyone who has experienced the band in action knows that their performances are the heaviest and sweatiest. “Incorporating Caribbean, African, and Latin sounds and everything in between, these musicians… sound as though they’ve been playing together since the sandbox days. They transition effortlessly from a collective of trombone, sax, and trumpet to riveting soloists. Then, there is heavy bass before… percussion, guitar, or keys take the limelight, and when [they’re] not playing simultaneously, those who are stepping aside are jamming out as if they were in the crowd with the rest of us,” writes Mary Mistretta, of UpstateLIVE. A polyrhythmic monster with a crisp, constant, unrelenting groove, the band brings together many musical traditions in a unique blend that reinterprets and reanimates live dance music unlike any other band playing today. At the band’s birth in Central New York State, the founders wanted to set themselves apart artistically while honoring the true, primal reason that people listen to music in the first place: because good music feels good; and though their sound has evolved since their inception in June 2009, they have stayed true to their mission for the better part of a decade. Few bands can trace their roots all the way back to a specific set of values shared in casual conversation among good friends; in the case of Big Mean Sound Machine, honoring the ideas the group was founded on seems to be more of an instinct than a choice. Big Mean is contemporary proof that it’s possible to create art that stimulates the body while also challenging the mind to explore beyond the status quo. “For the listener who stops shaking to pay attention at a Big Mean show, they can find a musical education,” writes Josh Brokaw of The Ithaca Times. Borrowing elements from traditional afrobeat, roots reggae, ethiojazz, and funk among others, “Big Mean’s [style] is not easily captured by the precise, genre-parsing descriptors of a contemporary music press that’s uncomfortable admitting to being surprised with a new sound,” writes Brokaw. Their instrumental soundscapes have no overt messages yet they’re anything but barren. “You get the feeling of walking the streets in a city late at night as those who are up to no good are coming out of their homes searching for their next score,” writes Bryan Lasky of NYSmusic.com. “Seamed together by an amazing rhythm section… the core of the group commands attention while providing a passionate and constant groove,” boasts Vinyl Fluid Records, noting the fact that this purely instrumental band stimulates audiences both physically and cerebrally, though devoid of vocal indoctrination. The theme the band delivers again and again through evolving rhythms and melodies is to enjoy music for its creativity and musicality, and the way it makes you feel in every sense of being able to feel....

Landon Tewers is an American musician and producer. He joined post-hardcore group Before Their Eyes in 2008 playing the guitars and screamed vocals, replacing Cory Ridenour. He performed in "Life Was All a Dream" in 2008 and in "Untouchable" in 2010. However, after taking part in these releases, he left the band the same year, soon being replaced by Evan McKeever.
Afterwards, Landon went on to form a new metalcore/deathcore project in 2010 originally named Vessels. The group released its debut EP "Wife Beater" the same year. However, the same year, the band underwent a name change and continued under the moniker The Plot In You. Since then, the band has released their debut full-length record "First Born" in 2011, and then their sophomore effort "Could You Watch Your Children Burn" in 2013, with Landon producing all of the band's music. The Plot in You then announced their signing with Stay Sick Recordings and, Happiness in Self Destruction, was released October 16, 2015.
The Yugos use ’70s Punk and New Wave as a springboard to launch into the mosh pit of its own unique creative process. From 2011’s self-titled debut to 2013’s extraordinary Life is Awesome and Then You Live Forever to last year’s single track tease “Follow You,” The Yugos deftly weave the stuttering time signatures of early XTC and Talking Heads into the dark Pop ruminations of The Cure and Psychedelic Furs, and then filter it all through the band’s own contemporary musical/cultural perspectives until it is recognizable only as The Yugos. Onstage, the band members careen off the walls and each other like pinballs that have been shot at the flippers from a pistol while maintaining some semblance of control. Their newly released album Weighing the Heart features more instrumental layers while still keeping their catchy vocal melodies.
The name, same as the album title, comes from the Ancient Egyptian Book of the dead. After you died the weighing of the heart would determine your afterlife. This song was originally created using a loop pedal. Like most of the songs from the record this song is about love, being young, and trying to understand your feelings.
The band won the Cincinnati Entertainment Award for Best Indie Artist of 2015.
"The Cincinnati based band draws from the post-punk and lo-fi traditions of yore to make something that’s simultaneously groovy and angular." - The Wild Honey Pie

Her Crooked Heart is the new name; the new music of Rachel Ries – multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer, hired gun, singer. Her Crooked Heart’s first release, To Gentlemen (CD & 7” vinyl EP), comes complete with Rachel’s own limited edition artwork and features members of Bon Iver & Field Report.
Rachel Ries, hailing from the prairies of middle America, crafts sly and compassionate songs for the crooked-hearted. With an electric guitar and piano; a clear voice and steady hand; she deftly pulls listeners in with disarming candor and holds them there with smart and tender poetry.
Along with numerous and diverse collaborators through the years, Rachel has proven herself ever-curious to expand her sound, her scope, and sail on past the confines of ‘singer-songwriter.’ After all, sometimes what the heart wants is poetry and a syncopated horn line; a string section and a bass synth – all leaving exultation and devastation in their wake.
But one thing has remained true since RR’s first homespun release: her sly and compassionate voice, excavating the depths of an all-too-human heart, armed with levity and a pen. It’s the messy humanity that’s of interest here. The trying and failing; the loving and losing and loving again. The choosing to be brave even when you’re shaking in your tattered boots.
Now I Feel Adored, JE Sunde’s sophomore LP, is an exercise in careful subtraction. The first LP “Shapes that Kiss the Lips of God”, (which itself followed complex LPs with his former band The Daredevil Christopher Wright), was an exercise in layers of sound…built up and presented like a spinning fan seen through a kaleidoscope. This second LP strips away the slowed blades and peers through a clearer, but darker lens.
The detailed weavings of melody found on previous recordings by the Minneapolis based songwriter are present, as always in the light strums of nylon string guitar, piano (electric and acoustic), occasional strings, synths and percussion, but the real feature here is in the bass guitar and vocal. Referred to as a “bass forward” effort by Sunde himself and played by Andrew Thoreen of Har-Di-Har fame and at times Pat Keen…it shows. This bass presence is best heard on the track “Wedding Ring”, a kind of ode to commitment to belief. Juxtapose that with the shadowy tune “Prism”, a sad observance of the faults of man and perception (or lack of). The hint of darkness shows itself again on the reckoning tune “Capsize and Sink”…beware censors, there is a word or two that the FCC would not approve of there. All the tracks on this LP flow from the beginning number, a duet with Monica Martin of Phox on the Irish folk-type tune “I Will Smile When I Think of You”. The essence of a kind of full minimalism starts there…it takes some time to notice how little is going on with the richness of what is heard.
As opposed to his first LP which was recorded over a long-ish time and mostly by Sunde himself, this second offering was done in just a few sessions, with his core band of , Shane Leonard (Kalispell, Field Report), Andrew Thoreen and Pat Keen. Augment that with Marty Breuggemann on keys and a smattering of real strings and flute and the sound becomes its realized self. The production quality of Hi Fi and vintage meets 70s am radio softness permeates the entire effort. The Victorian mansion in Neenah, Wisconsin that houses the studio sports a wood paneled dining room with a large table in the center where the band would share meals and breaks. The connections made at that table wove their way into the tightness and timbre of every track. This record will connect with anyone who sits at that metaphorical table to listen.... See MoreSee Less
From Louisville, Kentucky, hardcore noise punks Greyhaven delivers their full length debut Cult America with ten tracks of southern hardcore. A year in the making, bassist Johnny Muench describes the record: “We've gone in a bunch of different directions with the record so I hope that people are caught off guard by what they hear.” Since the album’s debut in 2014, the band released a new single “Blondie” in 2015 and have been touring the country with their southern, metal rock music.
“It’s big, loud and aggressive, but not stale. While the songs provided certainly have a bit of a classic hardcore foundation, I feel more of a rock n’ roll attitude. Cult America is impossible to ignore. If you are currently really into abrasive, loud music, this album is for you. If you were into really abrasive, loud music fifteen years ago, this album is for you.” – Never Nervous... See MoreSee Less
Intrepid Travelers are here to celebrate the coming of their second EP, "Everday Is Your Birthday," this summer with you! Joining the party will be good friends, Witty Tarbox! So get on down to Buffalo Iron Works on Thursday, June 29th to join in on the birthday fun!
18+ $7/$10 DOS
Founded in 2013 on friendship, fun, and a sense of freedom, Intrepid Travelers is a musical quartet from Buffalo, NY that defines itself through boundless improvisation and eclectic evolution. Treating each live show as a journey with the audience rather than a performance, Intrepid Travelers pride themselves on a form of focused, collective expression that showcases a medium where cerebral musicianship meets heartfelt, soulful songwriting.
Quickly building a following as an improvisational band that draws influence from the diverse catalog of American music, each show delves into the unknown, throwing aside setlists and traditional arrangements for explorations in all genres, from heavy roots in jazz-funk fusion, rock, bluegrass, to even classical and electronic music. Party music for the head and heart that also keeps the dance floor grooving.
Since 2015, “IT” has been busy both in the studio and out, with the release of second EP “Flash Drive in a Bottle”, as well as a live, in-studio video of the track “Conquistadors”, embarking on multiple national tours, and the inauguration of its family-run festival, “IT Fest”, all on its resume. Already breaking 100 shows in 2016, the young band has been on a meteoric rise like no other, and with the inclusion in national festivals such as Summer Camp Music Festival, Cobblestone Live, and Night Lights, people are beginning to notice. With the completion of only their third year, Intrepid Travelers are already continuing the great tradition of bringing people together, and do so with the same musical honesty and rawness of improvisation giants before.
"Improvisation does indeed play a role in Intrepid Travelers' sound, but so to do strong, sturdy and well-conceived songwriting, something in ample evidence on the "Rainbow Monkey?" EP"- Jeff Miers - The Buffalo News
" 'Intrepid' describes them well: they are fearless and resolute and own their musical style, which is melodious and placid, while improvisational rhythm, solid riffs, keys, and jamming keep it elevated. Fun, fantastical lyrics complete the feel of their live performance, demonstrative of their crafting abilities. I look forward to further exploration of Intrepid Travelers."- Mary Mistretta - UpstateLIVE... See MoreSee Less

“My best moe.down memory will always be opening moe.down 7, backing up my brother Michael on the main stage.”- Jim Loughlin
“To me, moe.down has always been a mix the best ‘laid back, friends and family, backyard throw downs.’ Musical and non-musician loved ones come from all over and as a result, we all have this special atmosphere where everything is better. Friends revel, everyone gets together with almost a singular communal purpose and the band reflects that onstage throughout the weekend. I look forward to having that back again this year and hopefully many more to come!
My favorite memories are of the amazing musicians that we get to share the stages with every year. Ha Ha The Moose, too.” - Chuck Garvey
“moe.down, for me, is a family event in many ways. My children have grown up there, and have made friends there. We look forward to it the same way one would look forward to a family reunion.”- Rob Derhak
Although the stages may have been dark and the ski lifts still over the past two summers, the moe.down discussions never stopped between moe. and Chuck Chao of Creative Concerts. The seventeen-year partnership knew it had something unique to offer when they threw their first moe.down in 2000, and the goal has always been to make each year more memorable than the last, while still retaining its intimate vibe.
The eclectic lineup of past moe.down performers includes: The Black Keys, Gary Clark, Jr., Cracker, TV On The Radio, Amos Lee, Ani DiFranco, Galactic, The Avett Brothers, Umphrey’s McGee, Grace Potter, Levon Helm w/Bob Weir, Cake, Ween, Perry Farrell's Satellite Party, The Roots and many more.
2017 will see moe.down returning to its roots. Originally conceived as a weekend reunion the band could host for their friends, family and musical cohorts, the festival will once again focus on moe. and the extended famoe.ly. moe.down 16 will keep all of your favorite moe.down pastimes, but try to add some mo' moe. and a little less stress.
New festival options this year will include layaway payment plans, and an enhanced VIP experience including downloads of every moe. set, golf cart escort upon arrival and a commemorative laminate.

Wurliday // Hailing from Albany, NY, brand new ensemble Wurliday brings together some of the most exciting, dynamic musicians in the live music scene for a lively injection of soul-funk goodness, direct to your ears.

The Rechorduroys // Wily band manager, Pony Dan helped a small town band achieve big time success when they released a Josie & The Pussycats-style pop song in 2017. The Troy, NY band, formerly known as "Ben Garrett & The Break-Up Kings," featuring Dan Wilson, August Sagehorn, and Raurri Jennings, became a sensation after their drummer broke his arm, and was replaced by nature enthusiast, Bryan Hogan, who injected something a bit different into their strange brew of psychedelia and shower rock.
