Juston Stens And The Get Real Gang
Juston Stens And The Get Real Gang
After playing drums for the Pennsylvania indie rock band Dr Dog, Juston Stens went solo to front his own band and play his own songs. Juston spent the last year touring around the country on a motorcycle to write and record music with members of Wilco, Spoon, Dr. Dog, Apollo Sunshine, Giant Cloud and other cool bands–a journey documented in the upcoming film, "I Lay Where I Fall."
Goodnight Lights
Goodnight Lights
Philadelphia’s Goodnight Lights has been described as “fractured pop specialists” by The Philadelphia Inquirer. Their sound is rich with catchy melodies fused with an aggressive wall of driving guitars and pummeling drums. The band has received critical praise from a number of publications, including WXPN’s “The Key,” “The Big Takeover,” “The Vinyl District,” and “Origivation Magazine,” among others.
"Goodnight Lights continue to sharpen its musical voice with well crafted songwriting, sparkling harmonies, smart melodies and excellent guitar playing..." –Bruce Warren, WXPN & The Key Music Blog

"Some of my favorite bands were finally smashed together in one…The Velvet Underground, The Pixies, The Stooges, Radiohead and The Arcade Fire. Goodnight Lights concocts a sound that channels these influences in a versatile yet original way. Innovative." –Jennifer Koch, Origivation Magazine

Goodnight Lights has shared the stage with the likes of Metric, Walter Schreifels (Quicksand, Gorilla Biscuits), Ex Cops, Royal Teeth, and Leagues, to name a few.
The band will be releasing new music in 2018. You can listen to Goodnight Lights on Spotify, iTunes, Bandcamp, and SoundCloud.
