Devon Kay and The Solutions
What started as a side project for budding songwriter Devon Kay became a full time project. Coming off the hot heels of local Chicago Indie/Punk legends Bury Me at Makeout Creek, Devon was ready to expand his songwriting into a new creative outlet, but he wasn't about to do it alone.
Grabbing guitarist and former Bury Me at Makeout Creek member Doug Yamate, former Kay's Place bassist Matt Campy, and a slew of new young musicians with eclectic backgrounds ranging from classical to techno, Devon set off to try something different.
2014 Rock 'n' Roll Rumble participant and Boston Music Award nominee for 'Punk Artist of the Year', Rebuilder rips open the preconceived stitches of punk rock to deliver their expansive, mature, and complex sophomore album, "Rock & Roll In America". Their debut full-length on Panic State Records, "RNRIA" reinvents the self-proclaimed gnarly rock band's sonic footprint, transcending the traditional three chord punk progression and showcasing the evolution of the band's collaborative writing styles. Passionate, stirring and with a 'never say die' attitude in the same vein as Frank Turner or Against Me, Rebuilder's live shows are packed with the resilient emotion of DIY music inspired by the honest truth, the instinctual reaction and the second wind that holds you back from the brink of exhaustion. Rebuilder hit the scene in 2013 and has opened for acts such as The Dropkick Murphys, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Dead Milkmen and Stiff Little Fingers. 'Rock & Roll In America' was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jay Maas of Defeater at Getaway Studios in Haverhill. -Bishop & Rook
Rebuilder is Sal Ellington (vocals, guitar), Craig Stanton (vocals, guitar), Daniel Carswell (bass), Brandon Phillips (drums), Rick Smith (electric keyboard and organ)
"Rebuilder need to get on the road with some of skate-punk and pop-punk's great masters, like the Descendents and NOFX. Their one-two punch of two lead vocalists and straight barre-chord punk is catchy as hell, and deserves to be heard by the masses." – Do 617
"Loud, fast, pop punk with attitude." – Daykamp Music
"Rebuilder are the best kind of in-between from hardcore punk and early 90's skate punk. Bigass hooks, singalong choruses, gritty palm-muted guitars…go do a kickflip, break your wrist, and go to a Rebuilder show in your cast. That's how it should be." – Adam Parshall Allston Pudding
"A killer punk screed needn't exceed two minutes. Economical and phenomenal." – Jed Gottlieb Boston Herald
Too fast for folk shows! Too quiet for punk shows! Too serious for comedy gigs! Too funny for art gallery openings!
Started in 2009 Dollar Signs uses music as a vessel to poke fun at the music scene, the audience, and most of all, themselves. Incorporating bitter honesty with a tongue-in-cheek sarcasm Dollar Signs shouts their way through exploring topics of loneliness, alcoholism, dilapidated apartments, and of course, fast food. Really though, Dollar Signs just does this to sell t-shirts and pick up girls.
