Vundabar
Vundabar
Vundabar began as a recording project between Brandon Hagen and Drew McDonald during their last year in high school together. Since then it has grown into far more. In April of 2013 they released their first album 'Antics' independently, which was followed up with multiple US tours and their first European tour, a two month string of shows with an emphasis on Festival dates as well as club dates. They have since returned to Europe for a second tour in the fall of 2014 and are anticipating a follow up tour in the spring of 2014. All of this being said, the three current members are only between 19 and 20 years of age. The Boston trio has been described as jangle pop and often compared to the likes of The Pixies and Thee Oh Sees for their quiet/loud dynamic and pop sensibility. They're know for their energetic live sets, and comedic approach to the performance.
Straw Hats
Straw Hats
From the sticks to the city, STRAW HATS rummaged the streets of Philadelphia finding one complete drum set, bass rig (with bass), and guitar rig (with guitar). Soon after, these three young vigilantes turned in their lives of nighttime crime fighting for music and more chances of social interactions/brighter future filled with melody and attitude.
The Retinas
The Retinas grew from the four corners of Philadelphia, piercing through the concrete walls of an old basement, they exploded into the brick buildings and concrete stairwells of the city. They blend a new/old mix of the loud fast adage , keeping a refreshingly raw sound. With Tom and Jake being best friends and playing together since the young tikes their energy is enlightened and their melody tig
ht. With John and Anthony being old time playing buddies, the rhythm section of the band belts out a base for cities to be built and places to expand. These two likely groups of lads come together with their expierience and life and influences to give you color and light in your music. We are now The Retinas, welcome.
