The Snails
The Snails
The Snails are an eclectic act specializing in various forms of Jamaican music, blended with ragged 50's rock 'n' roll and the sweet sounds of American soul. The band is fronted by Todd Fausnacht on lead guitar, complemented by Tim Hildebrand on rhythm and pick guitar. The driving beats spring from the rhythm section comprised of Josh Parry on drums, Ben Parry on bass, and Kyle Williams on organ. Though Fausnacht's vocals lead the group, it's not uncommon for the voices of all five members to come together in cascading harmony.
Port Arthur
Port Arthur is a Philadelphia-based folk-rock act. Influenced by acts such as Neutral Milk Hotel, the Doors, and Joy Division, guitarist and songwriter Luke Shefski crafted a brass ensemble with the help of some extraordinarily talented students at Temple's Boyer School of Music. Our eclectic sound incorporates folk, jazz, sea chanties and rock 'n roll.
Dead
Dead
Dead is a three piece band from Philadelphia. It is designed to allow you to pick up the sound, roll it around in your hands, let it get sweaty and drippy, and then put it back down from whence it came. It's a funk odyssey viewed through the lens of a smokey barroom somewhere in a stagnant purgatory. It's that episode of the twilight zone where Shatner keeps seeing a gorilla destroying the wing of the plane he is on. It's those fever dreams you had last winter where everyone you had ever met was at your funeral and you had them on skype from inside your coffin.

It's funk. It's noise. It's a barnyard stomp. It's mostly funk. It's chewy. It's beefy. They're dead.
