The Night Spins:
Garage pop laced with New York City grit, dark humor, and rock 'n' roll attitude. Born out of the American South, the first seeds for the group were planted when Josh Brocki and Manquillian Minniefee started messing around on guitar in high school down in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Fast forward to 2014: Josh and Manq, now living in Brooklyn, joined forces with Dallas, Texas-hailing Jesse Starr and Andrew "Ace" Jernigan to create Night Spins. Calling upon their experience working at burlesque clubs, circus shows, and raunchy variety clubs across NYC, the four-piece band melds its theatrical background with influences like Iggy Pop, Modest Mouse, and David Byrne for an unrivaled—and must-see—display of contemporary showmanship.
The Creaky Bones:
The Creaky Bones, formerly The Virginia Southpaws, was founded in 2016 outside Washington, DC in Northern Virginia. Founding members Mike Jones and Rich Russman bring a 15 year history of writing and performing with one of DCs longest running Rock bands, The Jones. The songwriting duo are supported by drummer Jonathan Matloff, bassist Jason Mattis and keyboardist Austin Day complementing the music’s rootsy vibe with jazz, pop, and retro style.
