Holy Boys Danger Club is a 4 piece Rock and Roll band from Portland, ME. Started by singer/guitarist Michael “Miek” Rodrigue in 2007 when he found himself with a small batch of songs and some studio time, but without a band. Rodrigue went into the studio with drummer Dan Capaldi (Sea Level,The Cambiata, SeepeopleS), longtime friend of the band TJ Metcalfe (Lady Lamb, Cosades), and Producer Jonathan Wyman. The sessions were eventually released in 2009 as the band’s debut EP “Lessons For Liars”; a raw, stripped down, 30 minute rock and roll offering. While “Lessons” was gaining popularity through word of mouth and local radio spins, Rodrigue received an offer to support a friend’s band’s release show – only problem there was that there wasn’t a definitive line up to play the show. Rodrigue and Capaldi immediately enlisted guitarist Zach Jones, and bassist Nathan Cyr (Dominic and The Lucid) to complete the band. The boys hit the ground running hard drawing crowds from their native Portland to NYC. The band used the momentum from their live shows to go back into the studio with Wyman to craft their sophomore effort “The Boo Box” – an all killer, no filler presentation of the quartet’s more refined sound. While “The Boo Box” would put the band on bigger stages, it would also lead to an indefinite hiatus as other projects were demanding each member’s attention. The hiatus ends in 2019 as HBDC assembles to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their inception!

The anti-genre indie pranksters SeepeopleS have been a band for 18 years.  The band, which is the brainchild of bandleader/songwriter/producer Will Bradford, has released 5 full length albums and 2 EPs on their own imprint, RascalZRecordZ. It would be an accurate statement to say that there isn’t a single band on the planet that covers as much ground musically, or traverses through as many musical universes as SeepeopleS does.  Musicians have long since taken notice and members of Morphine, Spearhead, Dave Matthews Band (Tim Reynolds), and even members of Parliament/Funkadelic are featured on previous albums. All seven records were co-produced by Will Holland (Pixies, New Pornographers, Dead Can Dance) The band has toured ceaselessly, playing over 1500 shows in 46 states during their long career. Most importantly, SeepeopleS features songwriting that is the definition of timelessness and lyrically have been busy writing the most important musical anthems of our generation.  It may be long after our lifetimes before this band gets their due, but they certainly will.  Nothing this good can remain hidden forever.

Ultra Major is the product of four guys who grew up listening to 90s guitar rock.  Take one part MTV Buzz Bin and 120 minutes; mix in plenty of big album rock a la Pixies, early Smashing Pumpkins, and Sonic Youth; shake it all up with indie/post-hardcore bands like Knapsack, Superchunk, Chavez and late 90’s and early 2000s punk & hardcore compilations; and pour on some catchy melodies for good measure.  Then pop that in the oven of a tiny rehearsal space in Brooklyn, slow roast it for a few years, and voila, you have Ultra Major’s self-titled debut.  Simply put, it’s a ripper.  Since the release of their debut LP, the band traveled to Seattle to record with Michael Lerner of Telekinesis, and will be releasing two new singles as a result.
