Plow United
Plow United
The time was nineteen-ninety-something. The place was Wilmington, Delaware, or West Chester, PA, or wherever you want it to have been. Three high school band nerds discovered Maximum Rock and Roll, Lookout! Records and DIY ethics. Away they went, making it up as they went along and in the process creating a style of punk rock that was disciplined yet erratic, melodic yet ferocious, and deceptively simple. Two decades (minus one very long break) and four studio albums later, Plow United is louder, faster and catchier than ever. Watch them for the changes and try to keep up.
The Scandals
The Scandals
The Scandals officially started in 2004 and have been running at full speed ever since. With their full length record "The Sound of Your Stereo," their EP's "Trenchknife" and "Riot on the Dancefloor: The Story of City Gardens," and their "New States" split, they've been making a dent in the punk rock scene one show at a time. They've been hitting the road hard over the last few years and show absolutely no signs of slowing down. They are known to spend more time in the van than in their own beds.
Chumped
Chumped
When you’re friends with some chick who you hang out with or whatever, who then starts dating some other chump and never talks to you ever again. This leaves you sitting there on a cold leather couch in your underwear playing wii, bowling, drinking stale MGD, and wondering where the hell your friends are. Dude…you got chumped. CHUMPED is a female-fronted indie-punk band comprised of four friends from Brooklyn, NY who like to drink and write songs about feelings. Drawing influence from the power pop structure and slacker sensibility of SUPERCHUNK, the poetic substance of JAWBREAKER, along with the urgency and energy of RVIVR, they write songs that are emotive, powerful and catchy as hell. CHUMPED’s Self-Titled EP is the culmination of formative heartbreaks, quarter-life crises, and an acute penchant for being young and dumb. They really look forward to playing a show near you sometime maybe, they guess.
