Since 2010, Dogbreth’s Tristan Jemsek has been charming his devoted following with guitar-driven power pop songs that poetically and tenderly capture specific emotional moments in full-blown rock songs. Formed and grown in Phoenix, Arizona, with Jemsek as the only steady member, the band has evolved over the years through three full-length albums, dozens of tours—some self-booked and some in support of bands like Waxahatchee, Joyce Manor, and AJJ—before landing in Seattle with it's current lineup of Bill Palmer (guitar), Greg Hughes (bass), and Malia Seavey (drums). 2016’s Second Home was released on Asian Man records to acclaim from publications like NPR, who called Jemsek’s songwriting “the work of punks who write youthful, larger-than-life songs that still wrinkle at the edges.”

Curse League

Curse League started in late 2015 when Kai Brunson recruited Chester Cun and Jake Campbell to play in a musical project in which shreddy guitars and technical drumming would underpin all the songs. Although initially a side-project, by spring of 2016 the band recognized the potential of their sound and released their first EP “Bodega Disco.” They toured up and down the west coast before recruiting Alexandria Hickel on bass guitar. With Alex on board, the band continued to play local shows, tour, and write new music. In 2017 the four piece continued to play out, taking short breaks to write and record their sophomore release “Laying by The Fire in Good Company.”
