Mickey Rickshaw
Mickey Rickshaw
Spawning from the musically vibrant city of Boston, Mickey Rickshaw is a high energy Celtic Punk band that plays fast and loud. Heavily influenced by the New England Punk and Hardcore and Ska scenes, the band also incorporates sounds from Mediterranean folk music, Australian drinking songs, and traditional Irish melodies. Their high tempo songs range in topics from travel and wanderlust, to crumbling long time friendships, to general celebration of life and death.

In June 2015, they released their debut full length album, "No Heaven for Heroes." The album pays tribute to great Celtic punk outfits that precede them, however it takes on its own original, youthful sound. After playing on Flogging Molly's Salty Dog Cruise with Rancid, The Street Dogs and many other great bands, Mickey Rickshaw is making moves fast.

Their new release, "Behind the Eight Ball" has quickly been gaining recognition within the community, and has earned the band an invitation to play on the Salty Dog Cruise for a second year.
Glacier
Glacier
"Glacier is made up of five guys who like playing loud, sad songs together. We started working together in the summer of 2012.

We released our first record 'Concave', in May 2013. It was recorded in the middle of the night, in a freezing church basement by ourselves and some friends. The record is available through the webstore of Massachusetts' based label Deathwish Inc. (www.deathwishinc.com) as well as through Newbury Comics in the New England area.

'Kirtland' and 'Black Beacon' were released together in 2014. The songs are longer, darker, and sadder and are the clearest representation of what we've always wanted to do. The records are available digitally through iTunes, Spotify and Amazon MP3 among others. Physical copies are available at Newbury Comics and Bullmoose Music in New England."
The Dead Trains
The Dead Trains
The Dead Trains are a three-piece rock 'n' roll band based in Boston, MA. The trio—which consists of twenty-somethings Matt Axten (guitar/voice), Natan Keyes (bass) and Rose Heydt (drums)—formed a year ago, when Axten and Keyes, who were high-school friends, reconnected by happenstance and crossed paths with Heydt. Their initial idea was simply to play electric blues, but as they began writing songs their shared love of delta blues, early rock 'n' roll, and punk bands like Gun Club, The Gories, and Big Black resulted in a sound that uniquely combines these disparate influences. After a series of successful gigs in and around Boston (TT the Bear's Place, Church, the Harvard Advocate, The Plough & Stars, Precinct, various house shows, etc.), the group self-recorded and -released their debut EP, "Break 'Em On Down," this past December. They are touring the South-East in July.
