Ten Years Under The Sun; Performing ‘Reach For The Sun’ in its entirety!

The Dangerous Summer is an Indie / Rock band from Ellicott City, Maryland.

Arms Akimbo is a 4-piece rock outfit comprised of Peter Schrupp, Christopher Kalil, Matthew Sutton and Colin Boppell. After meeting in college, they formed a band inspired by artists like Portugal. The Man, Local Natives, and Hippo Campus.

They self-produced their EP, “Vignettes” and found immediate success, soon opening for WALK THE MOON, Said The Whale and Colleen Green. Selling out venues such as The Troubadour, The Roxy, and The Bootleg Theatre they are about to hit the dirt for a SXSW & West Coast tour.

Last year Arms Akimbo released an EP, entitled 'The Wrong Kind Of Dance Party' as well as a couple of singles - 'Devil' and 'Virtual'.

LOCKET Locket, formerly known as Safe To Say, has signed to Fearless Records & released a new song “Out of Sight.”A way of holding the past close to their hearts, wearing their previous lives as Safe To Say proudly, only now willing to emerge as something new. Locket are four people that have grown up together, and finally find ourselves in a space we always wanted to be in.
The song explores how we “pursue love and continue relationships, regardless of how difficult distance makes things, or how messy a situation can get,” according to the band. Locket will release their Fearless Records full-length debut, which was recorded at Pebble Studios in Ottawa, an old church in Carleton Place, and various basements over the course of several months, later this year.

Singer/guitarist Brad Garcia explained the band’s change of name and where the members are as a unit in the here and now.

“Two years ago, we decided to walk away from touring or playing shows altogether. As a band, and in my personal life, we weren’t in the healthiest of places. We put things on hold in order to figure out what it was we wanted from this band if it were to continue. Looking back to those first couple months, there was always a chance we’d just put things to bed entirely — especially if the time to ourselves didn’t give us that sense of clarity we were looking for. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case. This break gave us a chance to make adjustments to our personal lives, to rediscover our love for writing and playing together, and, most importantly, to resolidify those relationships as people rather than just bandmates.”

Garcia furthered, “So now, to come back after all this time, with something that feels both familiar yet new, it just makes sense to change our name. And Locket seems fitting. We’e proud of everything we accomplished and were fortunate enough to have experienced as Safe to Say. We can metaphorically wear that pride around our necks moving forward, rather than sweep it under the rug. For the time being, we’ll still play some older songs for those that never got a chance to hear them live. But we’re eager to finally share what’s been kept hush over the last couple of years.”
