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."
No Thank You
Kaytee Della Monica came into the Philadelphia music scene at the age of 16 when she and some friends started the band Airports. Kaytee went on to pursue her visual arts degree at Moore College of Art studying Fine Arts with an emphasis in Sculpture. Video and music always had a strong influence in her artistic endeavors and many of the themes from her visual artwork have continued in her musical endeavors.

In 2016 Kaytee, joined forces with two of her former bandmates, Nick Holdorf (In the Pines) and Evan Bernard (The Superweaks), to turn the music that had formerly existed only in notebooks and recordings on her iPhone into their new project as the band, No Thank You. Of the release of their debut EP, A Nü Start, Erin Blewett of The Key says “Raw acoustics, dreamy vocals, and stunning lyrics are a just a few of the things you can expect from new Philly artist No Thank
You”

No Thank You is set to release their debut album, Jump Ship in early 2017 featuring the single Juicy J. The coming of age album pairs dreamlike sounds with dark lyrics to take you through scenes of friendship, betrayal, romance, death and addiction. Influences of their sound can be heard from Des Ark, Alanis Morissette, Rainer Maria and Pinback.

The band has joined Lame-O records and is excited for their first record release in 2017. You can look out for them on their first tour with friends, The Superweaks, later this year!
Loose Tooth
Larissa Sapko had set two goals for herself in the summer of 2013: find a job, and start a band. Once she got a job, the band wasn't far behind. She asked her friend Kian Sorouri if he would like to play guitar (he did), and he in turn asked Jim Dobrowolski if he would like to play drums (he learned how, and he did). What It Is came out in December 2013, and Loose Tooth enjoyed a year of playing local shows and weekenders in the Northeast.

After hearing that Jimmy was moving to Costa Rica, Christian Bach and Kyle Laganella stepped forward and volunteered their shredding skills to keep Loose Tooth moving up and onward. After reworking their first EP What It Is and writing some new songs in the process, the band's debut record Easy Easy East was ready to rip.

After touring on Easy Easy East throughout 2015, the band came together to start writing their follow up record Big Day. The songs on Big Day developed a more cohesive feeling as the four became more comfortable playing together. Big Day is set to be released in April of 2017 on Father/Daughter Records and Lame-O Records.
