Rebuilder
Rebuilder
2014 Rock ‘n’ Roll Rumble participant and Boston Music Award nominee for ‘Punk Artist of the Year’, Rebuilder rips open the preconceived stitches of punk rock to deliver their expansive, mature, and complex sophomore album, “Rock & Roll In America”. Their debut full-length on Panic State Records, “RNRIA” reinvents the self-proclaimed gnarly rock band’s sonic footprint, transcending the traditional three chord punk progression and showcasing the evolution of the band’s collaborative writing styles. Passionate, stirring and with a ‘never say die’ attitude in the same vein as Frank Turner or Against Me, Rebuilder’s live shows are packed with the resilient emotion of DIY music inspired by the honest truth, the instinctual reaction and the second wind that holds you back from the brink of exhaustion. Rebuilder hit the scene in 2013 and has opened for acts such as The Dropkick Murphys, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Dead Milkmen and Stiff Little Fingers. ‘Rock & Roll In America’ was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jay Maas of Defeater at Getaway Studios in Haverhill.
Timeshares
Timeshares
The members of Timeshares were best friends in 2008. That all changed with the formation of Timeshares in 2009. Be sure to catch Timeshares before they like each other again.
Lady Pills
Lady Pills
It’s true: objective analysis is boring. Life and society—and in turn, art—is made interesting by our distinct, unique perspectives. The most memorable music experiences are often defined by a sense of empathy felt by all across the room; each person—performer and audience member alike—have their own personal takeaways. On all accounts, Lady Pills get that.

Formed in October 2015 while attending Berklee College of Music, Lady Pills have a singular yet multi-faceted voice. Informed by their time in the Boston DIY community, Lady Pills’ unique perspective on the scene, social responsibility and life in the 21st century is felt in their music and at their shows.

Musically, the three-piece is lean but dynamic, often with guitarist Ella Boissonnault’s emotive vocals front and center. On other tracks, bassist Alison Dooley takes lead vocals, whose artistic perspective foils Ella’s approach. The driving yet fluid drumming of Claire Duhring makes the songs immediate. All together, they are a force.
