This event is all ages
New Haven, Connecticut rock quintet, Chaser Eight, is a melodic, alternative rock outfit that released their first studio LP, Chaser Eight, on February 17, 2015. Inspired by Joan Jett, Foo Fighters and Alanis Morissette, Chaser Eight writes moody, guitar driven songs lead with soulful female vocals. Since the age of ten, singer, *AUDRA*, and guitarist, Pat Walsh, have been writing songs together and released their first EP, Late Night Companions, in 2012 followed by EPs Up and Up and At the 426 in 2013. The band writes about relatable subject matter - darkness, love, loss, partying, and sex - inviting listeners to connect with the raw, passionate lyrics.
Chaser Eight has opened for The London Souls and The Radiators and *AUDRA* has worked with The Rolling Stones' iconic former manager, Andrew Loog Oldham, on the production and arrangement of her songs. Now Chaser 8 returns to the Ballroom where Radio 104.1 hosted their album release party to kick off First Shot, Last Mondays.
The Heavy Calm

The act consists of vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Austin James, bassist Spencer Hinkel Bel-Air, and lead guitarist Dan Salvetti and drummer Tyler O'Brien, both of Western Massachusetts-based band Actualize Fate.
Electronic compositions inspired by actual events, with live vocals.
