The Harlequins
The Harlequins are an experimental, psychedelic rock trio hailing from Cincinnati, OH.

Evolving out of the home recordings of songwriter Michael Oliva, the group formed with the meeting of bassist Alex Stenard in 2006. They were later joined by drummer Rob Stamler in 2008 cementing the current lineup.

The Harlequins are known for their energetic live performances and experimental light shows incorporating elements of 50's and 60's rock n roll with garage, surf, punk, and kraut-rock.
The Harlequins have released five albums independently and have been a regular fixture at South by Southwest, Bunbury, and Midpoint Music Festivals. In 2011 they were handpicked by The Black Lips for a feature on Noisey.com.

After touring slowed down following 2013’s ‘Sex Change’, The Harlequins signed to dizzybird records and spent 2015 writing and recording their debut LP for the label. 'One With You' was released on June 25, 2016 via dizzybird records. The first single "Not Yet Dead" received heavy airplay from WNKU and other national college radio while the group toured across the country in the summer and fall. The second single, Step Inside, was accompanied by a music video (featured on Punk News.org) by long-time collaborater Andrew Spohn (LA)
Ttotals
Ttotals
Ttotals have waited for the rest of the world to catch up. Psychedelic music is finally lurching towards a lasting place in popular culture. The word “psychedelic” itself may take on various meanings depending on who you’re talking to, and may even take its fair share of abuse - yet it has persisted.

Based in Nashville, Ttotals have been stoically ensuring that the genre remains relevant in Music City going on several years. Founded in 2009 by Brian Miles, a Nashville - native, Ttotals have employed an ever shifting cast of exceptional musicians in their eight years as a band. Their latest release, We Are the Outer Blues, sees newcomers Dylan Frost and Austin Edwards rounding out the Ttotals lineup alongside Miles, as well as making their first contributions to Ttotals’ catalog. Conceived out of a desire to bring avant garde principles to psychedelic music, Ttotals’ newest release continues to bring that original idea closer to reality. Over four songs, the trio establishes a sound that honors a lineage established by 13 Floor Elevators and continued later by Spaceman 3 without forgetting that Ttotals exists in the present. The songs themselves are driving and meditative, with riffs that become like chants, often expanding their presence over the entirety of the song.
Mammabear
Mammabear
"MammaBear comes from Atlanta, Georgia, but their rainbow roots rock sounds like it has arrived from another dimension where 1996 London has been swapped with Athens, GA" - Eric Davidson, CMJ

"They have a relentless, driving sound that will have you rocking throughout the night" ...."Here’s a young band that isn’t just creating music for the sake of blowing people’s minds and igniting mosh pits, but one wanting to communicate to people that anything can be overcome with a little perseverance." -- Benjamen Yung, The Revue
Nag
Nag
Nag is a four piece punk band from Atlanta Georgia consisting of Brannon (g/v) Tony (g) Tyler (b) Ryan (d)
