Rusted Root

     

    Free to VIP Badge Holders | $10 for Regular Badge Holders and Weekend Wristbands | $18 adv/$22 D.O.S. without Badge or Wristband

    Multi-instrumentalist group Rusted Root integrate the Grateful Dead's jam-heavy rock with percussion influences based on the music of Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. The six-piece formed in Pittsburgh in 1990 with Michael Glabicki (vocals, guitar), Liz Berlin (vocals, percussion), Patrick Norman (bass, vocals), and Jim Donovan (drums, percussion) as the initial lineup, though John Buynak (percussion, winds) and Jim DiSpirito (percussion) joined later that year. In 1992, Rusted Root released its debut independent album Cruel Sun. However, it was the band's 1994 sophomore album, When I Woke, that garnered the band national attention. With support from college radio and a good buzz from the band's entrancing live show, When I Woke became quite successful in alternative circles during 1995-1996, especially with singles such as "Send Me on My Way" and "Ecstasy." In mid-1996, Rusted Root released the Evil Ways EP, a compilation of live tracks with the band's contributions to the movies Twister and Home for the Holidays. The group's second album, Remember, followed in October. Produced by Jerry Harrison, it reached the Top 40 in its first week of release. A self-titled LP followed in 1998. After some time off, Rusted Root returned with Welcome to My Party in 2002 before leaving the world of major labels behind and releasing the 2004 album Rusted Root Live on their own indie imprint, Touchy Pegg. Breaking the seven-year wait for a new studio album, Stereo Rodeo landed in 2009.

    Levee Drivers' music embodies the sounds of old country souls being reborn into tomorrow's rock. Their music is a modern take on the story-telling of Johnny Cash, driven by early country and blues roots with a startling vocal rendition likened to a cross of Bruce Springsteen and Ryan Adams. Levee Drivers embrace an eclectic mix of sound that engages listeners of all ages and across many genres. They were named "Best of Philly Rising" 2007 by World Cafe Live. Levee Drivers also became the winners of the 2009 Beta Hi-Fi Festival hosted by World Cafe Live, a multi-night music competition with voting by the audience and a panel of judges.

    Recently featured in Filter Magazine's "Discover The Undiscovered", with a Nomination by Deli Magazine for Best of NYC 2011 Emerging Artists, and a commanding performance at Indie Ambassador TV, the buzz about My Pet Dragon, a 5-piece rock band, can be attributed to their anthemic songs and powerful live show led by Lead singer/songwriter Todd Michaelsen and dancer/actress Reena Shah.

    Drawing comparisons to Arcade Fire, Coldplay, Smashing Pumpkins, and the Flaming Lips, Todd Michaelsen's soaring vocals and strong pop melodies define My Pet Dragon's newly released LP, Mountains and Cities, which includes contributions by members of Mercury Rev, Gov't Mule, and Hurricane Bells. MPD's song Moonshine is currently in-rotation on Radio Stations all across the United States. The Official Music Video for Moonshine was featured on Fuse TV.

    Laura Stevenson was schooled in the traditional music of her grandfather and grandmother (composer of "The Little Drummer Boy" and vocalist for the Benny Goodman Orchestra respectively) from an early age. It wasn't until she started performing with Bomb The Music Industry in her teens, that she began writing on her own. Privately crafting songs on the softer side of indie rock and traditional folk, Stevenson was soon tapped as the band's opener and, with the addition of Mike Campbell and Alex Billig in 2007, Laura Stevenson and the Cans solidified. Their live band grew into a quintet, often times swelling to eight members, and the following debut LP, A Record, won them fans far and wide having been downloaded over 25,000 time since it's 2008 release.

    Sit Resist, an album centered around never sitting stagnant, sees a matured band that has been continuously at work writing, arranging and touring for the past three years. Lyrically, Stevenson's pen has a sharp, poetic tone, making it impossible not to be taken in by her stories. Where A Record crackled with Stevenson's intimate voice alongside gentle acoustics, begging the listener nearer, Sit Resist commands the attention of all within earshot with its rich instrumentation and textured melodies.

    Over the course of the album's thirteen songs, you'll hear the band weld a variety of musical styles that dreamily caress and nurture one another into a wholly unique rendering of Americana. "Master of Art" with its Phil Spector-esque, girl-group tease of an intro, explodes with the energy of Stevenson's voice - an instrument that is as strong as it is lovely. "Caretaker" conjures up ghosts and memories of homes inevitably / regrettably left behind. You'll find major-key resolution in the juxtaposed tale that is "The Healthy One," and "I See Dark" waltzes you, dear listener, into the lonely night, hand-in-hand.

    The overall effect achieved by Laura Stevenson & the Cans is an album that's as invigorating and life-affirming as it is quietly emotional and delicate. This is an intelligent, literate album crafted of fragments of fleeting memories of time and place, yet it manages to convey volumes. Sit Resist is a true piece of art! Out now on Don Giovanni Records.

    American Murder was formed in 2005 in Concord, NC, by Dustin McBride (lead vocals/guitar) and Rob-O (bass). After recording the “Coming Home EP”, they started to hit the stage anywhere they could. The band's debut album, “Chapter 1: We Pledge Allegiance...”, merges unhinged power chords and arena ready melodies to churn out a genre defining album chocked full of heart-pounding rock and roll. The boys are currently working on their second full length with award winning engineer and producer Wayne Holmes.

    When Ryan Hickey and Brad White started jamming together in 2006, it was far from serious. They recorded their music with a laptop--improvising everything on the spot--and didn’t pay attention to song structure or rhyme schemes. It may have been all fun and games at the time, but little did either of them know that what they had in common would grow into something more than a music project. That their collaboration would become a band. That their band would write and record songs. That their songs would give them the opportunity to play with a national headliner.

    The Resort has come a long way from Hickey’s basement in Lancaster, PA, where Hickey and White recorded their first song. Over the past three years, the band has self-released two EP’s as Open Ravine--both of which have gained them recognition in the Central PA music scene. Now sporting their new name, “The Resort”, the group is slated to release their third EP, Come Get Some, this fall 2011. When asked about the name change, White replied, “We’re not the same band we were when we started out. We’ve grown so much in the past few years, and we wanted a new name to reflect that.” White went on to add that it was the right time for a change.

    Having hit the Central PA music scene less than one year ago, Ten Throne is poised and ready to start making waves with the release of their debut album “Desolate Day”, due out on February 24th.When you hear music that is as well crafted as the ten tracks on “Desolate Day” it’s no surprise to find out that the majority of the band has an established chemistry that was created over years of playing together in numerous projects. The addition of front man Digger added a perfect mix of poetic angst and melody, taking the songs to an entirely new level.With driving guitars, a rock solid rhythm section, and undeniably catchy vocals – Ten Throne creates true modern rock anthems you will find yourself singing after the first listen.
