Gymshorts
Gymshorts
This four-piece punk dynamo from Rhode Island, is everything you want in a punk band: brutal, unrefined, and absolutely thrashing. With songs like, “Daylight Savings,” on which the band asserts, “I wish every day was daylight savings/an extra hour of sunlight/ an extra hour to get high,” they are exactly how you’d expect them to be offstage; upbeat, hilarious, New England punks who’d like nothing more than to goof off and make music with their friends. However that impression partially collapses when they mount the stage, strap into their instruments, and reveal their sludge-coated surf riffs and drums that sound both wildly anarchic and assertively tight. GYMSHORTS has been fiercely touring the U.S for the past few years supporting acts such as La Luz, Tacocat, Ron Gallo, The Frights, Death Valley Girls, Hunny and Naked Giants.
Lunar Vacation
Lunar Vacation
Atlanta-based Lunar Vacation formed in the summer of 2016 as a way to escape the monotony of suburban Catholic-school life. The five members- guitarist/vocalist Grace Repasky, guitarist Maggie Geeslin, bassist John Michael Young, keys man Matteo De Lurgio, and drummer Connor Dowd- began writing and performing in their junior and senior years of high school. Unsure of how to label their fusion of dreamy melodies, surfy progressions, and psych-rock jams, the five-piece has described their music as “pool rock” Their first single, “Anna”, released in early 2017, quickly gained attention, and the band self-released their first EP, entitled “Swell”, later that year.

They released their second project, “Artificial Flavors”, in 2018, further crafting their sound. After all members finally graduated high school, the five teens headed out on their first tour as a last hurrah before starting college. Lunar Vacation will play their first U.S. tour in the spring of 2019.
