The Hangover Brigade

The Hangover Brigade was born in early 2011, when a group of musically diverse friends got together to record lead singer Tawnee Kendall's debut solo EP, In Between Spaces.

Rehearsing mostly on Sundays, after eventful weekend nights in the foggy city of San Francisco, prompted the group to affectionately adopt their name. Mornings after whiskey-soaked evenings can feel like a deterrent for most; the Brigade turns hangovers into fuel, adding an extra layer of gritty passion to all their songs.

The Hangover Brigade captivates audiences with dynamic and emotionally-charged performances. Their songs range from heartbreaking to hilarious, each one, an emotional and evocative tale. The Brigade has the ability to transport you, electrify you, excite you.

The Hangover Brigade is Tawnee Kendall (vocals | guitar), Jeb Havens (vocals | piano), Jacob Wolkenhauer (guitar | melodica), Joe Hickey (bass) and Heidi Weber (drums).

With a patchwork of influences (Siouxie and the Banshees, Echo & the Bunnyman, Sonic Youth, Led Zeppelin, New Order and My Bloody Valentine) and by fusing elements of post punk, shoe gaze and psych rock, Vela Eyes produces an ethereal and aggressive soundscape.

The band started as a side project between guitarist Ian Zazueta (Delle Vellum, the Paradise Boys) and front woman Florie Maschmeyer. Bassist Nate Higley (The Snake the Cross the Crown - Equal Vision Records), was quickly added to the fold, introducing Julia Johari as a second keyboard player, guitarist and background vocalist. The four of them wrote a batch of songs and by September 2012 landed Jef Pauly (New Diplomat - Dan the Automator) as drummer.

Tall Sheep

Tall Sheep is a four piece, indie-pop, sophistipunk band from San Francisco, currently in the process of recording their first EP, due out in April 2013. Members converged in early 2012 to crash parties of cute and simple melodies with noisy tunes.
