Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts
Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts
Born and raised New Yorker Jeffrey Lewis leads a double-life, as both a comic book artist and an indie-rock musician. Beginning with homemade cassettes in the late 90s, and moving on to touring the world and releasing "proper" albums since 2001, Jeffrey's now 15-year career has included sharing bills and tours with the likes of The Vaselines, The Fall, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Roky Erickson, The Mountain Goats, Daniel Johnston, Devo, Pulp and many other luminaries. In between his contemplative folk narratives and bashed-out indie-punk songs Jeffrey is known for often including a couple of his illustrated songs in each concert (what he calls "low budget videos") sometimes covering historical topics (like "The History of Communism"), biographies (like "The Life of Barack Obama") or strange flights of fancy (like "The Creeping Brain"). Appearing in the past as Jeffrey Lewis & The Jitters (featuring his brother Jack and David Beauchamp), Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard and other touring ensembles, his newest band incarnation is Jeffrey Lewis & The Jrams (pronounced "drams") featuring Mem Pahl on bass and Heather Wagner on drums.

Rough Trade Records (label of The Smiths, The Strokes, etc.) has released six Jeffrey Lewis albums to date; Jeffrey has self-published eleven issues of his comic book series Fuff, and Jeffrey's writing, illustrations, comic books and music have been featured by The Guardian, The History Channel and The New York Times (among other places).
Friendship
Friendship
Friendship is a Philadelphia and Portland, Maine based band currently comprised of Dan Wriggins, Peter Gill, Andrés Rodriguez, Mike Cormier, and Connor Stout.

In 2015, the band released their EP ‘The Further You Kick It The Bigger It Gets’ via a youtube video, a 20-minute screen capture scrolling through the Philadelphia craigslist’s “missed connections” listings. Later that year, they released their debut LP, ‘You’re Going to Have to Trust Me’ on the Portsmouth-based label Burst and Bloom. The album is a collection of songs written by Wriggins and recorded in Philadelphia.

Wriggins mumbles his character’s frustrations over the band’s twisted articulation of americana - down-tuned guitars, steel flights, and drums negotiating between the lounge and the basement. Lyrics and production recount love, loss, and the struggle for community in an irreparable world.
Free Cake For Every Creature
Free Cake For Every Creature
Free Cake For Every Creature is Katie Bennett. For "Pretty Good", Katie Bennett spends time in the basement with bandmates/BFFs to turn her bedroom pop songs into scrappy twee ditties.
