GHOST CAT ATTACK
Powerful PHX Indie Alt Psych Rock Band... Taking direction from the Queens of pop, rock, folk, and blues. All original material written by Singer/Acoustic guitarist Sarah Chapman.
Vinyl Station is a medium rock band from Phoenix AZ. They started in 2010. Since, they have played well over a thousand gigs, changed members, toured, signed a record deal, recorded a few albums, changed more members, and most everything else you can imagine could happen to a band. They still think the songs are in control and believe that there is nothing better than a good live show.

STEFF AND THE ARTICLES
Steff Koeppen and The Articles is a Tucson, AZ based group made up of pianist and vocalist, Steff Koeppen, Chris Pierce on bass, Tom Beech on drums, Alexandra Tuggle and Ruth Hall playing violins. At the end of 2009, Steff began combining her solo project ideals with a full band. Each member's differing background creates a unique blend for the brand of indie pop that they play. The band released their first self-titled album in the summer of 2010 with River Jones Music Label. A new album is in the works for release in early 2012.
Snailmate was formed by Kalen Lander and Ariel Monet in early 2015 in Phoenix, AZ. To date, the band has independently released 4 EPs (on tape and CD) one 7 inch vinyl split, one tape split and one full length album "Love in the Microwave" which together have amassed thousands of physical sales and Digital downloads and garnered praise from press outlets such as Phoenix New Times, Java Magazine, Rogue Valley Messenger, ABQ Free Press and more. The band’s self-booked touring began spring of 2015 and they haven't stopped since. Snailmate has played clubs in every region of the country while also performing at SXSW, Evel Knievel days, UFO festival, multiple pride festivals, State fairs, Maximum Ames and Fog Fest. They are currently on tour supporting their new EP "Existential Anxiety" for 7 months. The duo will continue touring the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe and more until they die.
$8 Advance / $10 Day of Show
A couple years ago, Tom Groff appeared at a Ghost Cat Attack show and asked if he could record it. They asked if they could have a copy, everyone agreed and thus was born the first Ghost Cat Attack live album as found. But that was with a different lineup. In the past year Ghost Cat Attack has reformed with new members: Jeff Smoyer on Drums, Josh Kneisel on Bass and Richard Nihil (a.k.a. I Am Hologram) on guitar.... after playing a few shows together they decided to get ready for the studio, and as a part of that preparation they are recording a live album with the new members.
