Tan Vampires
While gaining comparisons to the likes of Radiohead, Wilco, Jim James, Modest Mouse, Local Natives, Bon Iver, and Death Cab for Cutie, Tan Vampires have created a genre-less sound that is uniquely their own.

Tan Vampires released their debut album, "For Physical Fitness", on September 20th 2011. During their record release week the band opened for well known artists including Yo La Tengo and Okkervil River and also headlined three shows of their own. Tan Vampires played two official CMJ showcases in New York City and have enjoyed returning to both Boston and New York for shows. The band just returned from playing Sundance Film Festival and is excited to take their music to a national level.
The Yes Way
The Yes Way
Grizzly guitar work that hearkens back to early Nirvana, infused with eerie melodic layering reminiscent of the later work of The Beatles. The Yes Way is an asteroid of rock and roll, which might best be experienced on the moon or suspended above the ocean's floor. They hail from Brooklyn, New York.
Viva Mayday
Viva Mayday
After spending two weeks at Newkirk Studios in Brooklyn, Viva Mayday
had completed their first EP entitled 100 Years. Blending together a
variety of genres with heavy political undertones, 100 Years was
quickly accepted by a wide public, and lead to gigs at some of New
York Citys foremost venues. Sold out crowds at SOB's and Le Poisson
Rouge, motivated the band to begin what will soon become their first
full length album, entitled Consuela.

Jafe Paulino and Gian Stone, two multi-instrumentalist/songwriters who
make up Viva Mayday, spent the past year writing, recording,
producing, engineering and arranging "Consuela." Calling upon a
variety of influences, from Bob Marley to D'angelo, Muddy Waters to
Rage Against the Machine, Consuela weaves various genres into one
solid piece of art. Though the album has been over a year in the
making, its very well thought out and concentrated.

Throughout the recording process, Viva Mayday has been making much
noise around New York City, opening for Living Colour, Dead Prez,
Styles P, Earl Greyhound, M.O.P., The Family Stand, Das EFX, Bazaar
Royal, Saigon, and many more. Their live shows are creating a buzz and
have been discussed in publications such as The Source Magazine.
Consuela is likely to be released Summer 2011, followed by a college
tour and a continued monthly residency at SOB's.
