Watch & Listen
Mad Anthony has been detonating their brand of loud, Garage/Punk Rock since 2007. “So what does Mad Anthony play exactly? From its volume and breakneck vigor, it’s Punk, pure and simple, but there is so much more at work here. Vocalist/guitarist Ringo Jones is like Iggy Pop channeling the spirit of Mississippi John Hurt in a Dead Boys tribute, screaming until the veins in his neck stand out like bridge cable under his skin. When Jones and guitarist/vocalist Adam Flaig start trading riffs, there’s a galloping rhythm that suggests Dave Alvin in his seminal Blasters days with a live power line down his trousers. And the rhythm section of power bassist Dave Markey and new drummer Marc Sherlock is thunder personified… If you see the name Mad Anthony on a telephone pole, get the information and get there. It will change you.”
Sly Roosevelt is a five-piece band from Huntington, West Virginia. Often described vaguely as “experimental indie,” their music plays with elements from a number of genres: introspective singer-songwriter lyrics sung in an abrasive punk-like style, swelling guitar riffs, complex structures, catchy pop melodies, synthesizers, unconventional percussion, and the occasional theremin-driven spacey breakdown.
Sly was formed in 2008 by Sean McDaniel, Matthew Marshall, and Alexander Durand and now also includes Jyoshua Sanders and Jordan Trent. Former members include Justin Kay (bass) Brian Graham (keys), Megan Durand (keys), and Aimee Schmalz (vocals).
The Dead Frets
The Dead Frets are a four piece rock 'n roll group from Huntington, WV with a chick bass player so you know we are punk. We like writing catchy tunes with rowdy tudes. Drawing from influences like David Bowie, The Talking Heads, Depeche Mode, Hall and Oates, Can, and MCR you never know what genre we are going to tackle next! One thing you can count on is a high energy rock show packed with zesty peppers and a splash of sardonic angst. The Dead Frets are Tyler Cooper (Vox/Guitar), Garrett Kee (Guitar), Sarah Pepper (Bass), Jeffeey Mccleland (Drums/Vox)
