The Bright Light Social Hour
The Bright Light Social Hour
The Bright Light Social Hour is a psychedelic southern rock band from Austin, Texas. Born out of a university art-rock collective, the band first gained attention in Austin from their incendiary live performances and innovative vision of rock and roll. Melding neo-psychedelia, hard dance, and southern soul, their debut full-length album led to heightening critical acclaim, national touring, and a rare sweep of six awards at the SXSW 2011 Austin Music Awards, including Band of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year.

Following their album release, The Bright Light Social Hour have embarked on a heavy touring rotation, playing over four hundred shows throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico. They have performed in front of thousands of new fans, most recently at Lollapalooza 2013, Austin City Limits 2013 and opening for Aerosmith at the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City. The Bright Light Social Hour is currently recording their second full-length album.
Black Taxi
Black Taxi
BLACK TAXI is one of NYC's most prominent live acts, smashing an anything-goes punk ethos together with pop sensibilities, unparalleled energy, and brilliant songwriting. The result is a raucous stage show, heavy on harmonies, spitfire guitar licks, body paint, and all manner of instrumentation. Their style has been described varyingly as "grit-pop" or "dance punk", and though their songs hint at the Talking Heads, Cake, and Daft Punk, they are driven by something entirely new and infectious. BLACK TAXI songs can be heard on radio stations from Maine to California, accompany hit TV shows, provide the soundtrack for film, and hit the airwaves on commercial airlines. Their most recent music video "Shoeshine" has found a success of it's own as an Official Nominee for the Webby Awards.
Echosuite
Echosuite
Echosuite is a NYC based rock band founded by classically trained tenor, Justin Wands. Their music has been described my Spin Magazine as “epic arena rock balladry.” The band just finished recording their debut EP which can be purchased on iTunes.
