“[Time Traveler] is a glorious pop record in the vein of Belly and 90s R.E.M.; recorded with the prolific Jeff Zeigler, the album’s songs are a radiant reflection on life and death, on the temporal onslaught and the things left behind in its wake.” -John Vettese, XPN/The Key
“…the quartet of The Bigness hits the ground running as Kristin Bigness’s vocals craft an intimate yet fiercely powerful setting. Coated in layers of polished rock instrumentation that still holds an emotional grip, the group hits melodic touchstones while an extra gear breaks them loose. “ –The Deli

Sleepy Freak is a project started by Kate Lord in the beginning of 2017. For the majority of the past year, it has existed as a solo project. Now sometimes it's a band. To date, Sleepy Freak has only released solo music - a set of demos released last February, and a split with Greg Mendez released in November - but plans to release their debut full band EP sometime in the first half of 2018.
From their start as a joke in a college dorm room, Colonial Williamsburg has been a staple in the Philadelphia all-girl comedic quarter-life crisis improv comedy show after-party music scene for millennia (3 or 4 years). With such hits as "I Fucked Benjamin Franklin" and "The Pizza Song About Depression", the duo has cultivated almost a dozen fans. For one night only, they'll return from retirement to play the songs of their hearts: half parody, half aggression, almost entirely played on ukulele. Band members include Sola Onitiri, Katie Calcado, and a souvenir frog from Bermuda on percussion.
