Samuel Powers, Baughman Dynasty, & Arches!

As a throwback to a decade full of their most beloved sitcoms, (where the quintet derived the content for their music) Samuel Powers is a band living in the 90's. The group formed in 2013 to self release their first EP "The Bayside Tigers," a basement-rock soap opera about characters from the TV show "Saved by the Bell." Shortly after they went back into the studio to record their newest EP "Empty Halls, Future Friends," a five song coming of age story drawn from the episodes of the heart-wrenching "Boy Meets World."
But if reliving moments from your favorite childhood television programs isn't enough, SamPow brings an emotional and fun live performance that will take you back to your youth.


Baughman Dynasty
Will-power. Consciousness. Frenzy. Security; Presentation.
Composed of a couple of brown-haired brothers, Baughman Dynasty is primarily a guitar and drums duo with a passion for the dynamic and melodic. Born and bred in Maryland, these two effortlessly produce that classic, sought-after "central-Maryland sound".


Arches - MD
Instrumental / Post-Hardcore from Frederick, MD. Formed in 2014.

Heavy Wire & Lushfarm

"HEAVY WIRE blasted out of their hometown of Baltimore, MD with their self-released debut record, the Ruiner EP, in 2017. Veterans of the mid-Atlantic music scene, Mike Sill (vox, guitar), Rick Barnwell (guitar), John Kneip (bass, vox), and Ben Zamzow (drums) create titanic, commanding rock songs dripping with undeniable sing-along hooks. Complementing their powerful musical bedlam, HEAVY WIRE's lyrical themes depict a world full of nihilism, extreme paranoid delusions, and sex with robots. HEAVY WIRE is currently wrapping up production for their next self-released studio recording, the Future Toys EP, to be released early 2018."


Lushfarm :: lushfarm.bandcamp.com
"lushfarm has birthed a personal, surreal vision for what we expect out of indie rock that has been lacking with certain acts, whether seasoned or prospective. This isn’t your Best Buy indie rock ... it doesn’t need to push boundaries, but rather it set up and created its own and isn’t afraid to howl how pathetic of a person you or they might be. It is music that is a product of the human experience, and would not have any qualms about telling you to fuck off."

Fractal Cat

Baltimore’s Fractal Cat writes and performs music influenced by the classic decades of rock ‘n’ roll, from Buddy Holly to Smokey Robinson to Syd Barrett. As a seven-piece psychedelic rock ‘n’ roll band with horns and strings, or as an acoustic trio, the band combines multipart harmonies with lyrical themes combining social commentary and mysticism. The band released The Tower, its third album of all-original material, live in studio at WTMD Radio, Baltimore in early 2017. That station also named “Tryptide” from the band’s previous album Lovingkind one of the top 14 Baltimore songs of 2014. 

In 2016, Fractal Cat was featured in the “Maryland Music” documentary presented by Maryland Public Television. The group and its side projects perform at dozens of clubs and festivals in the Baltimore region and beyond, sharing bills with local, regional, and national acts of all stripes.

Bencoolen

Bencoolen is no longer the band you know from their first EPs. The band has grown around a new lineup, toured, and rehearsed more than ever. "Spotlight" was the introduction to the new wave. "The Crown" will continue it at the end of September 2017. The band is already touring relentlessly to save up toward another single and a full length recording project in the Summer of 2018. Ask anyone who has seen this lineup live. Bencoolen is tighter, raunchier, and more energetic with every passing show as approach fifty dates in 2017 alone.
The transition out of 2016 was a hectic time for Bencoolen.  The outfit found themselves ramping up regional performances to touring the East Coast.  Bencoolen has evolved into a maximalist rock group featuring soaring vocals, stunning guitar work, and soulful saxophone lines. Together they have been hired as opening support for Big Something, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, Atlas Road Crew, the Mowgli’s, and Marcus King Band. Bencoolen has also picked up festival slots in NC, VA, and DE, headlined by a stop at Firefly Music Festival in 2017.
One No Depression writer described Bencoolen's live act as, “Everything I had hoped for. Their enthusiasm and energy filled the room as the crowd looked on, filling up the venue with a prominent and boisterous vibrancy.”
Bencoolen is now touring in support of their upcoming single, "The Crown," and previously released single, “Spotlight” which was featured in a Paste Magazine column and with Live Music Daily. The recording was built on a live room recording at Inner Ear studio in Virginia with legendary engineer Don Zientara. Don has recorded for a wide range of artists from the Foo Fighters to Fugazi.

I know the guy who owns this bar too.  Cool guy!  Lots-o-tats!  I can't wait to get tattoos too, dude.  Me and Sam and Colin and Matt and Andrew and Haas, we got lifer tattoos. Mine says "DOES MY FACE LO" and his says "OK LIKE A DRAGON".  Too fun! #toofun  The Fun Boys are from Frederick, MD.  They consist of 4 members at the same skill level.  You gotta see it.  It's a nightmare.

Memory House formed in the middle of 2017 by a group of friends who enjoy playing music and revisiting the past through musical experiences; Hence the name, "Memory House." We play a mixture of everything from 90's nostalgia, 80's rock, 2000's pop, and everything in between. 

What started out as a fun jam band, quickly turned to a covering of the classics for friends and family. We began playing birthday parties, cookouts, and other private events that soon led to a following of people that wish we would play local bars, festivals, and public venues for entertainment... 

....And here we are.

Marley Hardin: Comedy Night

Just a few standard questions before we get started-this will only take a minute.

Now that summer is coming to a close, are you feeling a little down in the dumps?  Is your anxiety giving you anxiety?  Are you sad that the world's on fire but also kind of relieved because you can't ever seem to find your dang lighter?

Finding a happy medium can be tough, especially when you're surfing on the edge of the wake that is life.  So throw a drink in one hand (you know-for balance), get a grip and enjoy the ride!

We are all mad here.  Come join us in the nuthouse, won't you?

Crooked Hills

Crooked Hills

Crooked Hills is a hard-charging thunderhorse of a rock band hailing from Frederick MD and the surrounding foothills of the Appalachian mountains.

Crooked Hills is known for their energetic live show and a sound saturated with massive riffs and lyrics inspired by the rich dark history of the area. 

Crooked Hills plays a style of heavy music with elements pulled from metal and hardcore, but also equally infused with classic rock swagger and bluesy southern grooves. A tight and driving rhythm section foundation supports wailing guitar leads and screaming vocals. 

Crooked Hills has played numerous venues in the Maryland and Virginia area since coming together in 2015. Recent line-up additions have enhanced and solidified the granite monolith that is the Crooked Hills sound. 

Crooked Hills released and on-line 3 song EP at the beginning of 2017 and is currently in-studio finishing a full-length to be released later this year.

Hurricane Hoss and the Perfect Storm

"...honest-to-goodness country splendor anchored by fiddle playing and down-home vocal charm that endear immediately to even the lightest of fans of the genre...” in Wilmington

“…catty, cool, authentic…smashing the sounds straight outta Nashville.” philadelphia weekly
 

HURRICANE HOSS has blown through the juke joints and watering holes of America, the perfect example of a classical good-girl gone outlaw. She’s shot whiskey in the Midwestern Wilds, danced to zydeco in Louisiana, fallen in love in the Rockies, and two-stepped on top of broken hearts in Nashville. With fiddle, banjo, and guitar in tow, Hoss sings the stories of her travels and travails, as well as traditional songs of the American experience. Fans of western swing (Asleep at the Wheel, The Time Jumpers) and vintage country (Jimmy Martin, Patsy Cline, Glen Campbell) will easily find a place for Hoss in their ears and hearts.

 

When performing with her band THE PERFECT STORM, Hoss calls on the finest session players and hottest pickers to color her songs with a truly unique sound. Driven by a vintage country vibe, Hoss & the Storm aim to entertain and engage the audience with funny jokes, colorful stories, and heartfelt songs. And of course, dazzle with lots of rhinestones!
