Nemes
Nemes
Nemes is an unquestionably unique 4 piece rock/folk band from Worcester, Massachusetts. Led by duel frontmen Dave Anthony (Guitar/Vocals) and Josh Knowles (Violin/Vocals), with Alex Glover (bass/guitar/vox) and Chris Anthony (Drums/Vox) creating a walloping rhythm section, the band brings what Worcester Magazine calls “a nuclear power plant's worth of energy” to any venue they enter. Energy isn't the only thing Nemes is focused on though. The band's songwriting, involving memorable lyrics and catchy hooks, will always be at the forefront, followed by a wide array of top-notch musicianship.

Since being named one of Alternative Press' top 5 unsigned bands in 2010, Nemes has embarked on multiple tours of the Eastern US, self-produced and released an album entitled "Don't Flush Me" in 2012, achieved viral success with their interpretation of Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box", and most recently released a live acoustic EP entitled "Five Minutes" which showcases uniquely intimate arrangements of songs which will be featured on their first studio full-length album, "I Carry Your Heart", due out in early 2014.

The bottom line is that Nemes is motivated, capable, and ready to take on any audience put in front of them.
Arms and Ears
Arms and Ears
Arms and Ears is a 5 piece Indie/rock group based out of Boston, MA.
Pushflowers
Pushflowers
Pushflowers is a four piece indie rock band formed in Boston, MA in late 2016. Highlighted by harmonies from vocalists, Rocio Del Mar and Justine DeFeo, the music takes influences from pop acts such as Charli XCX and Carly Rae Jepsen, while blending it with the rock sensibilities of Mitski and Tegan & Sara. Along with vocals, Del Mar plays synth/keyboard and DeFeo plays lead guitar. Accompanied by Ryan Alfonso on bass and Josh London on drums, the quartet picks up where they left off in former local band, Off & On. Pushflowers plays their first show on 3/4/17 at O'Brien's Pub in Allston with Slingshot Dakota, Ratboys, and fellow local band, Lilith.
Box of Birds
Box of Birds
Box Of Birds is a Boston based contemporary folk duo lead by Charlie Gargano and Steph Durwin. After meeting as audio engineering students at the New England Institute of Art in Brookline, MA, it was not long after that they were writing songs and experimenting in the studio. Acoustic guitars and vocals were the primary drive behind the music supported by other melodic instruments including harmonica, melodica, and keys. Drummer Benny Grotto formerly of metal band "Motherboar" and Erik Calderone (ECG, Boompa) joined the band in 2013, bringing a subtle epic-ness that the songs ultimately deserved. Lyrical content ranges from political and social commentary (comparable to Conor Oberst or Kevin Devine), to nature and hope
