Say Anything
Say Anything
Say Anything has been making odd, unclassifiable indie rock music since they were 14 or 15 years old, playing strangely literate and loud rock, characterized by what one might imagine if Larry David fronted a Fugazi cover band with the members of Queen. Not that that’s a stretch or anything.

Having been birthed from the indie/punk boom of the early twenty-first century, Say Anything rose to prominence with their (oddly) popular record …Is a Real Boy and somehow broke the “pretty boy punk” mold by establishing a career that thrived somewhere between music your pretentious college student of an older brother would like and the loud crap that your little brother uses to annoy him with. Say Anything followed that record up with the equally eclectic and lengthy, In Defense of the Genre and their exceedingly bratty (hopefully in a good way) self-titled LP. Say Anything will release their highly anticipated fourth studio album, Anarchy, My Dear in March 2012
through Equal Vision Records.

All together, those records sold almost half a million copies and were illegally downloaded by even more people, who were too broke to pay for them but still really dug the band. Those listeners did however, care enough to go see Say Anything play, which allowed for them to contribute to a reliably chaotic, cathartic live experience. Say Anything has toured heavily with other weird bands such as Thrice, Manchester Orchestra, mewithoutYou, Saves the Day, Biffy Clyro and Eisley, among many others, and has established themselves as one of the few bands nowadays who end up as sweaty, busted up and bruised after a show as the people who are actually watching them.

After ending a long relationship with the large corporation who put out their records for many years, Say Anything has signed with the aforementioned amazing and
independent label, Equal Vision Records – who actually want the band to play whatever they want to play and have it be as neurotic and strange as they want it to be. Say Anything recorded Anarchy, My Dear in August 2011 with Tim O’Heir (the eccentric and brilliant gentleman who produced their first record) and has committed to playing music in this band until they finally, once again, are forced to wear diapers.
The Front Bottoms
The Front Bottoms
Formed in Northern Jersey, The Front Bottoms grew organically throughout the underground. First tackling local Jersey media like The Jersey Journal (“…quirky love songs with dollops of synths, trumpet, and strings that command your attention”), The Star-Ledger (“It is hard to come away from an encounter with The Front Bottoms without developing protective feelings about the band akin to those that Jonathan Richman’s fans feel about him”) and Aquarian Weekly (“an indie-pop sound similar to that of Piebald with the vocal style of Say Anything… Impressive!”), the band quickly garnered rave reviews from national outlets such as Alternative Press, Filter, All Music Guide, DRUM Magazine, Beyond Race Magazine, AOL, Absolute Punk, Jersey Beat, and Sputnik Music among many others, and even caught the eye of the Los Angeles Times who declared “This is a pop soundtrack for learning to live in the moment.”
The So So Glos
The So So Glos
The So So Glos are rock n roll band of brothers from Brooklyn, New York who formed in 2007- a band that has taken their own 21st century slang term and re-appropriated it to define themselves. The band has said that they call themselves by the street term as incentive to combat this type of behavior.

The band itself is made up. They're made up of Alex Levine, of Ryan Levine, of Matt Elkin and of Zach Staggers . Through divorce and remarriage, brothers Alex, Ryan and step brother Zach were grouped together at a very young age.

In Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, the three started a rock and roll group. Without fully knowing how to play or tune their instruments the group was born in 1991.

Their earliest recordings were done on tape cassette and have often been described as "punk" sounding. Critics and historians have much debated over whether this decision to sound punk was intentional, or that its youngest member (alex) was three years old at the time. Despite differences in opinion by historians, they continued to grow as did the "rough around the edges " sound that would go on to define the band.
