THE FEBRUARYS' atmospheric, experimental indie rock sound focuses on songwriting over volume, with influences ranging from The Beatles to Taking Back Sunday. Garnering new fans at every show, their latest CD "Brighter Side of Things" runs the gamut from love songs to sad songs, songs about selling out, and comments on those who have a heightened sense of their intelligence due to fixating on the daily news. http://www.thefebs.com

S.K. ROBOT - featuring members of Bossanova, Cinderpop, Speedbuggy, The Liars and Space Kid, S.K. Robot creates addictive harmony and hook-laden pop/rock that sounds both fresh and familiar. http://www.skrobotrocks.com
