The Frights
The Frights
Biography
The Frights started in December of 2012 in order to have fun/make loud music/get hunnys and munnys.

Description
The Frights are the house band for a 1950's underwater Halloween party.
The Soaks
The Soaks
From the gritty graffiti clad walls of a Tijuana bar to the sweaty pulsing crowd in a smoke filled house party,The Soaks are the fuzzy garage soundtrack to whatever half drunk inevitably regrettable decisions you made the night before. Equal parts sugar dipped hooks and driving, no frills punk, the San Diego four piece's frenzied barrage channels timeless Southern California sounds. With the addition of organ, synths and weaving vocal harmonies, The Soaks both expand and define their hard hitting and relentlessly catchy assault
Actionesse
Actionesse
Out of the ashes of Bellingham ska-punk outfit The Gypsters rose Actionesse, a garage/dance/surf rock band currently based in Seattle. With influences ranging from The Deadly Snakes, Sax Ruins, and MC5 to Abba, Budos Band, and Morphine, Actionesse dips their appendages in all varieties of music that inspire them. With two short-but-sweet EPs up their sleeve and two big recording projects on the way, Actionesse consistently pushes the boundaries of rock and the live show experience.
Skating Polly
Skating Polly
Skating Polly, a sister duo from Oklahoma made up of Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse, formed in 2009 after a jam session at the girls' Halloween party. After recording their debut album Taking Over the World in their living room. Their sophomore album, Lost Wonderfuls, (produced by Exene Cervenka of X and mixed by Kliph Scurlock of The Flaming Lips) was released in April, 2013. Their third album, Fuzz Steilacoom, released March of 2014 was tracked by Calvin Johnson of Beat Happening at Dub Narcotic Studio.

Raised on '70s punk and early-'90s alt-rock, Mayo (age 15) and Bighorse (19) mine inspiration from artists as disparate as Johnny Cash, The Ramones, Nirvana, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Bikini Kill and saturate their own songs with a raw energy reminiscent of their musical heroes. Skating Polly takes a minimalist approach to songwriting, with the two self-taught musicians (Bighorse plays guitar, Mayo plays a guitar/bass hybrid called a basitar, and both girls play drums and piano) crafting super-catchy melodies mainly by "messing around with our instruments and figuring out how to make cool noises," according to Bighorse. But despite their stripped-down aesthetic, their songs contain a rich emotionalism that's at turns brutally in-your-face, gut-wrenchingly tender, and irresistibly fun. A critic described their single 'Alabama Movies' as "an undeniable piece of work…a knockout punch that pummels your rib cage into shrapnel shards for all its thunderous percussion, palpable tension and Kelli Mayo's piercing, possessed vocals."
