"Smash Joan Jett together with Iggy Pop, and you've just created Soraia's lead, ZouZou Mansour. The band Soraia is born from raw power, fiery passion for rock n' roll music, and relentless, unconquerable spirit. Well known for their spitfire live performances, they've most recently had a #1 hit in South America with their version of The Kinks' "(I'm Not) Like Everybody Else" from their last record. Garnering the interest of major rock icons and producers along the way, Soraia will continue burning a fire into new fans' hearts with their upcoming release, "Less Than Zero".
Tomato Dodgers
Tomato Dodgers
Spreading the cult of Illuminati rock & roll across the galaxy since 2013.

Tomato Dodgers are an action-funk rock and roll band from College Park, Maryland, right outside the nation's capitol. They've steadily built up a fascinated following across the east coast, with dynamic and strange participatory performances that blur the line between stage show and immersive art piece. They dance - they feed each other toast - they rap - they build doomsday devices onstage - and mostly they shred festivals and house shows like you or I might mow a lawn: with vigor and fierce skill.

Tomato Dodgers write their own music and book their own tours. The past year has seen the band touring rigorously, including shows in Japan and South Korea, festivals across the U.S., a seven-week marathon of pure DIY, and runs with Lionize and World/Inferno Friendship Society.

2016 Presidential candidate Martin O'Malley was a member of Tomato Dodgers for one strange show in 2013.

They will not rest until they perform on the moon.
Church Girls
Church Girls
Church Girls is an indie rock four-piece residing in Philadelphia. Led by Mariel Beaumont (vocals/guitar), the band formed in summer 2014, releasing their first single “Young Planes” to local acclaim.

Their self-titled debut EP, released in early 2015, was noted for its “personal, honest and direct rock songs” (John Vettese, The Key, XPN) with a “tightly wound backend and electric guitar runs that are ready to spring loose” (The Deli Magazine).

Think Modest Mouse meets Lou Reed, if you’re into those sorts of comparisons.
