ACAPULCO LIPS
Formed in a smelly, moldy, Seattle basement in the Summer of 2012 by four people from all over the country and beyond (France). Brought together by an intense interest in all things rock 'n' roll, they sought to create a sound that combined their many influences; namely, the sounds of the 60's: R&B, Garage, Surf, and Pysch. The result was a reverb laden, fuzz filled, catchy batch of songs. Currently working on a full length release due in Spring '15!

Grenades are a post-hardcore, post-punk, post-whatever band from Seattle, WA formed in late 2009. Just a few months after forming, the band self-released a three-song demo, and in 2011 they co-released a split 12-inch with Mercy Ties. And now, after three years, hundreds of shows, and a lot of beer and bad jokes, Heaven Is Empty is finally here.

AT BLACK LODGE

NUDE BEACH (NYC)
Chuck Betz, Ryan Naideau, and Jim Shelton have been performing as Nude Beach since 2008. Their previous album, II, lead to them working with Tom Scharpling on a music video and touring with The Men and Roky Erickson. On 77, Nude Beach occupy a unique rock ‘n’ roll plane of existence that finds harmony between radio-friendly giants like Tom Petty and reclusive underground kooks like Bill Fox. As a trio of musicians, they are loose without lapsing into sloppiness, earnest sans cheese, knowledgeable minus pretension. Over the course of a set as the band whips from one song to the next, they will echo the tones and moods of Springsteen, The Only Ones, The Flamin’ Groovies, The Replacements, and Badfinger, as well as anyone who released a record on Sire between ’77 and ’81. But when three people have been playing together in a band for as long as Nude Beach has, they begin to substitute influence for telepathy. Betz’s wailing Telecaster never collides with Naideau’s thrilling drum fills or Shelton’s nimble bass lines; call their brand of rock ‘n’ roll whatever you like, but it’s never short of eloquent, ingeniously performed and classically constructed.

SLUTEVER (Los Angeles)
In 1994, underground music was dirty, stained with self-loathing and doubt. Losers ruled and the dirge of the Northwest had crept into the mainstream. It was an era that inspired two young girls to pursue an unforgiving future in punk rock. But with a taste for underground comix, junk food and all things low brow, Slutever owe as much to Beavis and Butthead as they do to Kurt and Courtney.
