About Beverly Crusher

Acid Punk

Beverly Crusher

Beverly Crusher is a Seattle based band playing what they have coined as Acid Punk. As commanding as their namesake, their slick riffs and heavy shredding evoke flying car chases of the future. Pedal-to-the-metal bass playing by Max Stiles and the volcanic drumming of Sam Stiles are perfect ride-or-dies for Cozell Wilson's ruthless guitar and vox. Formed in 2014, the trio offers heavy, high energy rock that's guaranteed to make your ears smirk. aj dent


About Wall Drugs

Wall Drugs

Wall Drugs is a Seattle-based band made up of five veterans of the city's alternative scene. Growing out of a chance meeting between guitarist/keyboardist Aaron Martell and bassist Jacob O'Neal at the cafe where one of them worked, the lineup grew to include Lino T. Fernandez (guitar), Mikee Guanlao (drums), and Beatrix Hauth (vocals), all of whom already knew each other from playing shows around Seattle. This familiarity was then re-spun in the practice room, resulting in Wall Drugs' honed-in sound: a chilly 90s-indebted atmosphere of vapory synths and shifting shadows set to a dream-pop dance beat that keeps their live audiences rapt. Released on the Tacoma, WA, label Swoon Records, Wall Drugs' debut EP Here Hella Early includes the dreamy single "Blind" and the more uptempo, paranormal-themed "Ghost." Recorded and mixed by Rahul Mathew, and mastered by Jack Endino, Here Hella Early captures the depth and dynamism of Wall Drugs' late-night rock while highlighting Beatrix's sorrowful, desert-flower vocal performances, which will remind listeners of Hope Sandoval's in Mazzy Star.

About Seaside Tryst

Seaside Tryst

Brewing below the blanket of the Pacific Northwest sky, Seaside Tryst is bringing a colorful pastiche to moody indie dance music.

Raised in a place called Horsepasture, Virginia, Avery Kanode was inundated with the twangy syncopations of traveling Southern Baptist revival tours from birth. Yearning to clap on the 2s and 4s, he would seize any opportunity to soak in the secular soundtracks heard at chili cook-offs, backwoods pageants and dance recitals.

There had to be a brave wide world outside the Blue Ridge Mountains, so he found himself in the Emerald City of Seattle, working sweaty dance parties to fund his early transition and collecting friends along the way to form the garage pop sensation: Seaside Tryst.

Seaside Tryst is more than a dramatic way of saying "sex on the beach". Infectious melodies, angular guitars and pulsating synths keep crowds moving at live shows in goth clubs and gay bars alike.

Avery's voice floats atop a dusky cocktail of synth-pop and post-punk with tales of small-town escape and queer heartbreak. Songs set sail on synthesizers and samples controlled by Frankie Champagne. Their airy back-up vocals provide a soft landing for lyrical gut-punches. Ryan Pangilinan's raw driving bass equally calls upon his days in the PNW hardcore scene as his disco vinyl gigs. The shy, handsome strongman in the back propelling the band with the dynamism that only live drums can provide is Jesse Peoples.

This foursome is a tight-knit chosen family woven together by a mutual interest in glittery pop, men in eyeliner and taking care of one another.

The band is excited to announce the release of their first full-length record Different Places, a modern new wave gem produced by Jenn Champion coming out on Cruisin Records this fall. The album is a milestone for the band, who have otherwise self-released EPs and online singles. Different Places is a testament to the magic of queer collaboration - with Jenn Champion's keen ear and indispensable guidance, these gay pop-obsessives have crafted an emotional, sonically captivating record.
