Static Radio NJ
In 2002 Static Radio started inconspicuously enough: four friends who grew up going to shows and listening to all types of music got together, wrote some songs, and played any show they could get their hands on. Initially, the band reflected much of what had drawn them into punk: simple, aggressive guitars, angry vocals, and speeding drums. As a relatively young band, they cut their teeth on the New Jersey scene the hard way; painstaking trial and error, and above all an unrelenting energy and desire for experiences. Over the years these experiences seeped themselves into the way the band crafted their songs; although they never strayed from hardcore punk their material began to take on additional elements, nuances reflective of their years as a band. Somewhere along the way, two things happened; someone on the opposite side of the country unleashed their legal team upon the band in order to protect the image of their bar-band/ puppet-show/God-knows-what (at which point Static Radio became Static Radio NJ) and more importantly, the band somehow decided that the progression and growth of the band would become the member's main priority. Static Radio NJ don't plan on stopping anytime soon because they simply love what they are doing and couldn't imagine doing anything else but playing to anybody that wants to listen.

The humble beginnings of Tallahassee [now austin] indie rock outfit Look Mexico can be traced to a chance meeting between Matt Agrella (vocals/guitar) and Dave Bumsted (guitar) at a Sea and Cake show held at Florida State University. They started writing songs, and in early 2004 decided to really get a band up and running together. Searching for members to round them out, they eventually hooked up with drummer Josh Mikel; Look Mexico booked their first show in October 2004 (playing with Karate, no less), even though they had yet to find a bassist. A temporary one was found just in time for the gig, but Look Mexico weren't solidified until after the recording of their first EP, 2005's So Byzantine, with the addition of Tyson Kuhlhoff. The guys played various dates, mostly around Florida, before entering the studio in early 2006 to record their next effort. The Crucial EP was released later that year to positive response, and following its recording, Bumsted left to pursue school and was replaced on guitar by Ryan Slate. Over time, the band shared stages with acts like Horse the Band, Piebald, Gogogo Airheart, Fake Problems, and more. Look Mexico signed to Lujo Records in late 2006 and readied their debut full-length, This is Animal Music, which appeared the following summer. The band supported it on the road for the remainder of the year.
You Blew It!
You Blew It! might be one of the last great hold-outs in the emo revival that took over the last decade. More sane than Algernon Cadwallader, less sonically-spacious than Cap’n Jazz, YBI! cherrypicks from 90’s emo and indie in a fashion that many have aimed for but few have achieved. These cat-loving, taco-eating dudes have been holding it down in their native Orlando scene since February 2009. Since then, they’ve had enough lineup changes to see something like twelve members come and go all while completing four out-of-state tours and a few notable gigs with The Get Up Kids.
