Oh, Are They?
Oh, Are They?
Alternative/Punk Band from Philadelphia. (Members of Metroplex and Kitty Kat Dirt Nap).
Belgrade
Belgrade
With liquid-like intros and outros. Belgrade's fleshy songs are sure to spur a variety of emotions. Daring themselves a slap in the face with the glove of simplicity, things are kept subversively straightforward. While embracing more than healthy doses of echo, the air between meaty ideas is apparent and fluid. Offering layers of cycling guitar, nimble bass lines, snappy dynamic drums and floating vocals, the sounds teeter from an understated warm twang to a groaning twisted reverb-fest.

Urging you into a heap of head-tossing joy while never letting things fully explode. The name of this game is restraint, boys and girls. Each element birthed from a loud and bombastic past - the new challenge becomes seeing who can best tightrope walk the wavy line between blissful-breezy melodies and purposeful energetic sharpness. Internal rebellion never sounded so endearing.

Let's cloak those catchy pop smarts under blankets of reverberated echoes bounced off last night's full moon - still ringing in the squinty-eyed hangover morning. Let the sound shimmer and swoon forward and back like a chorus for the night time, to be consumed during the day. Anthems to prep us all for that cloudy nocturnal courage.
Honeytiger
Honeytiger
Honeytiger is a two-piece alternative band that hails from Philadelphia. Their music provides a seemingly impulsive duality of garage-rock and mercurial pool jumping that energizes the crowd, makes them weep, and has them wagging their tails. From soaring falsettos to guttural screams over big drum beats and catchy guitar riffs, Honeytiger has an unusual combination of intensity and melancholy that is usually reserved for slow motion car crashes.

In 2015, Josh Glauser (drums) and Isaac Clark (guitar/vocals), having known each other through mutual friends for a year or so, came to the realization that they had a musical connection. In Josh's parents' basement in the northeast suburbs of Philadelphia, they started working on what would be a massive summer project that Isaac's brother, Jamie Clark, would help record and produce and eventually become their first album "Half Clean" which was released in January of 2016. Likened to The Strokes, Spoon, The Black Keys, and The Arctic Monkeys, Honeytiger brings a punch to their live show that connects and leaves a mark.
