Dogs On Acid
Dogs On Acid
Dogs On Acid is an punk/indie band formed in Philadelphia, PA in 2014 comprised of Peter Helmis, Joe Reinhart and Nick Tazza from Algernon Cadwallader and Nate Dionne from Snowing.

They released the first of their two seven inch record in August 2014 under Ranch Records and their second is scheduled to be released early in 2015 under Asian Man Records.
The Superweaks
The Superweaks
Led by the songwriting powerhouse duo Evan Bernard and Chris Baglivo, The Superweaks evolved from a Philadelphia music collective to a full time band for their first collective EP The World Is A Terrible Place And I Hate Myself And Want To Die. Since then, the band has formed a place in the hearts of the Philadelphia scene through their impressive knack for writing hooks that chew bubble gum and kick ass.

With influences ranging from Weezer to Thin Lizzy to The Ergs, the songwriting team delivers song after song of straight to the point powerful pop backed by the occasional impassioned shout and a healthy tinge of fuzz. The band released their debut LP Bad Year in 2015 on Lame-O Records, which led them to tour with everyone from Brand New and The Get Up Kids to Modern Baseball and Joyce Manor.

On November 4th, 2016, The Superweaks will release their follow up LP Better Heavens, dedicated to the band's bass player and family member Corey Bernard, who passed away this summer. Artwork on the album, both the cover and further art within the LP come from Corey's old drawings.

Better Heavens sees some sonic experimentation from The Superweaks, carrying on some of the pop and guitar-rock from their last release, but also finding more dynamic moments throughout. The band softens on track "Diamond Mind," experiments with synths and vocal effects on "Oh God (We're All So Miserable Now)" and adds some atmospheric heaviness with "Heavy Dreams" and "Junkie's Gone To Heaven," while still delivering great pop hooks on songs like "Better Heavens" and "Glowing."
Thin Lips
Thin Lips
Thin Lips is the brain heart baby of Chrissy Tashjian, Kyle Pulley, Christopher Diehm and Mikey Tashjian. Their debut EP Divorce Year was released in 2015, giving us a sweet blend of indie rock guitar riffs and punk rock energy. This EP was recently pressed to 7" vinyl via Lame-O Records. With their new album Riff Hard, named after the tattoos on Chrissy's knuckles, Thin Lips bring their guitar shredding, high energy indie rock to a whole new level.
