Lung (Cincinatti, OH) - Heavy Indie Rock
Lung is a powerhouse rock duo comprised of Kate Wakefield (electric cello and vocals) and Daisy Caplan (drums). Their sound is thick, dark and commanding, evoking the driving sludge of early grunge/post rock with layered sinister undertones. Kate Wakefield is a classically trained opera singer and Daisy Caplan was a key member of the rock band Foxy Shazam.
Playing shows from Nelsonville Music Festival to famed DIY venues like 924 Gilman Street, Lung have made their presence known and developed the reputation as a “must see” band. Since their first performance in April 2016, the band has played over 500 shows across North America and just finished up their first European tour.
They have shared bills with artists such as Le Butcherettes, Screaming Females, Big Business, Brainiac, Fucked Up, Priests, Machine Girl, Shellshag, The Messthetics, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Downtown Boys, GRLwood, and Street Sects. Their sophomore album: ‘All The King’s Horses’ landed them the title of one of Daytrotter’s ‘Top 100 bands for 2018’, and worked the crowd into a frenzy at their SXSW 2018 Official Showcase.
GRLwood (Louisville, KY) - Scream Pop
2Fag babes. A suitcase drum.
used-to-be a freak solo act.
Now a gay-ass duo.
A dash of cilantro.
Will coo softly operatic
Then chew your ears up.
Based out of Louisville, KY.
est.(as a 2piece) august 2017.
GRLwood is our full time.
Ask us to play at your racist grandpas funeral.
We both sold our souls as children for proficiency in our skills.
We met at a GRLwood show when GRLwood was a solo act.
Karen was like "yo i play drums."
Rae was like "a girl drummer is my dream."
Gnarly Beth (Champaign-Urbana, IL) - Indie Pop, Rock, Pop Punk
Champaign-Urbana pop rock outfit Gnarly Beth formed in the summer of 2018 as the side project of longtime collaborators Kamila Glowacki (drums/backing vocals), Isabel Skidmore (guitar/vocals), and Christine Pallon (bass/vocals). The three started playing music together in 2015 as three-fourths of the punk band La Louve, and continued to collaborate in other projects over the years: in 2017, Skidmore joined Glowacki’s band Nectar, and Skidmore and Pallon both started playing in the noise rock band Spandrels that same year. But when La Louve called it quits last May, the three formed Gnarly Beth in its place and switched instruments to push themselves out of their comfort zones.
One summer later, Gnarly Beth are gearing up for the release of their debut, self-titled cassette, out May 31st on Rat King Records. Recorded and mixed by Sean Neumann (Jupiter Styles) and mastered by Brandon Carnes (Looming), the tape’s five songs blend a little bit of pop, a little bit of punk, and the spirit of 60s girl groups to form an energetic sound that’s already captured the hearts of Champaign-Urbana audiences over the past year. Once a summer side project with an uncertain future, Gnarly Beth now exists through these songs as a fully-formed, exuberant testament to the years of friendship and collaboration that inspired it in the first place.
