Ha Ha Tonka

Named after Ha Ha Tonka State Park in their native Missouri, the group's relentless touring has seen them become one of the most buzzed about young bands in America, appearing at Lollapalooza, Sundance Film Fest, SXSW, CMJ while touring nationally as a headlining act, as well as supporting many great bands such as Old 97s, Murder By Death, Langhorne Slim, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Someone Still Loves You, Boris Yeltsin, Ludo, Meat Puppets and more. On March 28, 2011 Ha Ha Tonka was a guest on The Travel Channel's flagship show, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. It was one of the first times in the show's 5-year run that a band has been invited to perform. The band’s new record Death of a Decade debuted on Billboard Top 200 and was followed by a near sold out CD release tour in April/May 2011. The band completed a 50+ date fall headline tour which included a performance at Austin City Limits Festival as well as a multitude of radio shows. The band appeared at several festivals including Floydfest, Bristol Rhythm and Roots, Kentucky Derby Fest, Twangfest and more in 2012. Ha Ha Tonka just finished recording the follow-up to Death of a Decade, out Fall of 2013.

This Oklahoma native makes stark music that surrounds her sweetly smoky voice with acoustic guitars, fiddle and occasional piano. Crain is a traveler at heart who has populated the songs on her first two albums with characters she's met on the road. She takes a more introspective tack for the first time on her latest, Kid Face, on autobiographical songs she says constitute "a musical journal" of her experiences.

Commonwealth Choir

Golden age indie-rock from Doylestown, Pa. A sea of boom-chucks and ooo-la-la's, their violently lush arrangements blend towering harmonies over 60's garage rock & 90's alternative. Their debut EP Shirtless - recorded and produced by the band themselves - was released in late September 2013. Now heading back in the studio, the Choir is gearing up for a busy end to 2014.
