The Blank Tapes
The Blank Tapes are lead by one Matt Adams, and backed by a rotating cast of amazing local players that bring his songs new life both on on and off the stage. The sound is marked by groovy, syncopated rhythms that range from a modern take on the sixties San Francisco sound to solid rock and roll pop with memorable hooks, riffs, and danceable beats. The band's energy onstage is both uplifting and hypnotic as their sound is at once both their own and utterly familiar, providing a nostalgia for original songs you have just been introduced to.
"Beachy and fun, this band is sort of like a Ronettes meets Black Lips mash up." ~ Brooklyn Exposed
"They are like the band that sonically beats-up the resident surf rock bands. Cut from the same cloth as Dum Dum Girls, Raveonettes, Black Lips and all the others I feature here on a normally basis, Beach Day have a slick and steady 60s garage rock sounds with those girl group vocals you crave." ~ Music Snobbery
"a truly distinct air of youthful rebelliousness and manic playfulness"
~ Consequence of Sound
"Beach Day specializes in a beachy (duh), garage-minded breed of girl-group pop. Indeed, this wellspring goes back about 50 years, and lots of young acts are reviving it now, but this band's interpretation is so natural and incandescent that they make it feel completely fresh again. They have all the romantic nostalgia that you want from this fare but with just enough garage grit to be au courant. But their universal virtue is their rare melodic gift. Most of their ilk simply don't have the stunningly easygoing songwriting instinct that Beach Day does. And that's the difference. It's basic but it's everything. It's why all their songs sound like singles. Moreover, singer Kimmy Drake has the true voice of a girl-group leading lady, something like a young, white Ronnie Spector raised on punk."

Song Preservation Society
Song Preservation Society is an acoustic band noted for their stirring vocal harmonies, beautiful songwriting, and charismatic stage presence. Inspired by the likes of Crosby Stills & Nash, the Beach Boys, and Simon & Garfunkel, this trio delivers a sound that is both timeless and fresh.
The boys of SPS (Daniel Wright, Ethan Glazer, and Trevor Bahnson) met while they were students at Berklee College of Music in Boston. In 2009 they moved to California together and began playing as part of a rock band called 7 Orange ABC. Soon they were playing stripped down, acoustic shows as a side project, which in 2010 officially became the Song Preservation Society.
