The Wired Era
We are The Wired Era, a rock band from New York City looking to take over the world one show at a time.
Our Sound crosses all boundaries of genre and style to create one coherent pop tune that will be stuck inside your head for days. We take our writing one song at a time and because of that each song sounds different from the last.
"Mix in a pot the Red Hot Chili Peppers (if they came out of the East Coast) throw in none of the hard drugs, pour in all of the funk, sprinkle a little bit of emotion with a dash of sincerity and comprehensible lyrics then wash it down with a mixed drink consisting of Matchbox 20, Coldplay and Damien Rice and you might get close to tasting The Wired Era."
"The songs range across a wide set of themes as the duo build up their track listing that demonstrate The Wired Era is a versatile and able outfit - which is full credit to them as far too many bands I come across seem determined to have one song and only one to throw out into the melting pot."
"Sure it is relatively clean cut, however the heartfelt renditions give the audience a sense of genuine connectivity... they are able songwriters and I look forward to catching up with The Wired Era in the coming months."

"The tracks are melody driven with the vocals standing prominently at the foreground. Filled with emotive, allegorical lyrical matter; the tracks play out more story than song..."

"The Wired Era had 2 rocking sets in New York. On Wednesday they brought the house down at Resorts World Casino... [and] at Sullivan Hall. The Wired Era presents a full sound and exude a confident presence on stage... focusing on lyrical quality with harmonic gems that are sure to become their signature. "

Hailing from Washington, DC Sweet Interference is a unique indie rock band that combines a wide arrange of musical influences to create their own blend of music. The band is currently in the studio working on their fourth full length album, The Falling In and Out, due for a July 2011 release. Sweet Interference will then spend several months playing shows in DC and the Mid-Atlantic region in support of the album. At the end of the year, the band will focus on writing and recording new material and putting together a longer national tour in 2012.
Sweet Interference has been compared to bands such as Rilo Kiley, The Dresden Dolls and They Might Be Giants. Their music is melodic indie-rock reminiscent of early Pixies and Modest Mouse with a hint of The Rentals. Their songs deal with a wide range of themes from late night parties to falling in love to frustration in the modern world.
Sweet Interference is a 5 piece group consisting of: Moira Annelin (vocals), Chris Cortelyou (drums/guitar/vocals), Josh Klein (keys/vocals), Alex Marsh (bass), and Zach Mast (guitar/drums/vocals). The band has garnered press mentions in publications like DCist, Skratch Magazine and Express Night Out (Finalist for “Best Of DC”, Best Local Artist). They have also played extensively throughout the region.
Sweet Interference has released three full length albums to date: The Depths of Loneliness (2010), We Never Draw Hearts Anymore (2009) and Losing the Highway (2007).
Street Sign Orange
Street Sign Orange was formed by Brian Fairchild and Dominique Jones. Both men met as students at Queensborough Community College. They met during Jazz Ensemble and spent the semester playing tunes in class, Dominique on bass, Brian on trumpet. Brian introduced Dominique to his guitar playing and the two decided to collaborate and form a band. Brian wrote the songs and Dominique added his smooth bass lines. While looking for other musicians, Dominique and Brian came across Phil Williams (saxophone) at York College and Miles Moran (drums) while perfoming at The Shrine in Harlem. Since forming in 2011, Street Sign Orange has performed all over NYC as well as doing a tour of the rest of the state performing in Albany NY, Saratoga Springs NY, and Malone NY. Their first full band will be released on May 7th 2013. SSO's influences include John Mayer, Dave Matthews, Bob Dylan and Neil Young. They play a few songs from each artists in their sets. SSO is fueled by the desire to play music. Their biggest dream is to be able to play in front of a crowd of thousands of screaming fans. Doesn't matter if it's day or night, a musical festival or a concert, they just want to be given the chance to sell out a crowd.
