Board of Governors
Board Of Governors is a power-rock trio with music
distinguished by energetic, riff-driven, modern hooks infused with a heavy vintage appeal. Raised on the West Coast, Trevor Hougardy owes much of his guitar and vocal influence to the grunge-rock 90s of Seattle. Born on the other side of the country, drummer John Marino gained popularity touring in the punk-rock scene of the East Coast. Bassist Frey Brown,
a Chicago native, grew up playing in and around the Midwest with various jazz-rock bands. Their widely divergent backgrounds set off a strangely irresistible cataclysm of soundscapes.
Alongside writing, recording a debut EP, and releasing three music videos, the Governors maintain an impressive showing in the independent music scene, including playing at venues like the House of Blues Chicago, Double Door, Lincoln Hall, Schubas, Elbo Room, Martyrs and Mad Planet and winning the 2011 IAM Fest Battle of the Bands competition.
BambiRaptor is a five-piece Chicago-based band forged in 2009 by a group of close friends. Their sound is highlighted by catchy hooks, energetic guitar riffs and vocal melodies. The group consists of Roger Remillard (lead vocals), Doug Moore (guitar, effects), Gary Farr (guitar), Kenneth Kruse (bass, backing vocals), and Nick Emrich (drums, percussion). BambiRaptor's material can be compared to acts such as The Killers, Jet, All American Rejects and Taking Back Sunday with the energy and fun of Blink182. The band's particular sound has been coined "Dance Rock", and dabbles in other genre styles such as punk, indie, hip-hop and reggae. Their shows are high energy, colorful, and fun. BambiRaptor currently occupies a monthly practice space at Superior Street Studios and plans on recording their 2nd EP early Fall, 2010.
Rocketboat is an American adventure-rock band. Members Collin Magdaz, Marc Adrian, Josh Hanchar, and Andrew Dumaresq produce a sound forged in the embers of punk and post-modern rock that is dynamically rooted in science fiction and video games.
Band Called Catch (acoustic set)
The first thing that strikes you about Band Called Catch’s latest album, The Story, is its sheer musical diversity of its songs. It touches on everything from rock and roll (Black and White Socks) to the 50’s style doo-wop title song, The Story. The range of music released by BCC shows that they have been tirelessly creating, making them such a riveting band to watch.
This has been a very exciting year for BCC, with a Best Love Song nomination (When In Rome) from The Independent Music Awards, and placements on MTV, among others. The dynamic sound and show that BCC delivers has landed them bills with the likes of Grace Potter, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Crash Kings, Dawes, Drive By Truckers, Cory Chisel, and hundreds of other knowns and unknowns.
