Birdgangs are Boston’s premier purveyor of East Coast Rock Garage Surf N Turf. Formed in 2017 by friends Jack Davis (guitar, lead vocals), Matt Bates (lead guitar), Julien Schremmer (bass), and Fernando Echeverry (drums), they released their debut EP ‘Maximum Suction’ in March 2018. Since then, Birdgangs have been gigging around the Northeast US, earning The Deli Magazine’s recognition as one of the Best of New England’s Emerging Artists.
Their music “produces creative, cutting-edge surf music in the East with gripping honesty in the lyrics, surprising structural rhythms, and a zinging guitar fingerprint.” Influenced by the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Johnny Cash, and Real Estate, Birdgangs digests only the highest quality seeds to regurgitate a new strain of bird flu you never knew you wanted. Come out to a show, jump around, and say hi.
Maybelleen is the name Peter and Charles Camiré gave to their muse. They will tell you that it's possibly a fairy or a mythical spirit they've bump into, somewhere between our world and another dimension. It inspired the band to design their own genuine Pop rock sound.
The brothers got involved in song writing at a very young age. Music has always been the main subject in the family. They formed the duo in the summer of 2012 and started playing acoustics sets in their hometown of Montreal. Enthusiastic about making their performance a bit louder, they took inspiration from 80's New wave acts and started programming punchy backing tracks to accompany the songs and enhance their live set.
Having organized a 45 shows tour in the UK in 2016, Maybelleen clearly understands what the touring life is all about. The brothers also toured several times in Ontario and took pleasure in testing their new material in the province.
Now based in Toronto since 2018, Maybelleen are constantly playing shows in the city and are about to release their 3rd, self-produced EP 'The Paris Tapes' in the spring of 2019.
Kid Lucifer is a four-piece rock band originally from Vancouver, and now based out of Montreal, Quebec. The band consists of Henry Girard (Guitar and Vocals), Linus Heyes (Lead Guitar), Sam Schuette (Bass), and Quinn Letendre (Drums).
Kid Lucifer formed back in December of 2015 in Vancouver, British Columbia. After developing their sound and cutting their teeth in the underground Vancouver music scene, the group toured across Canada in the summer of 2017 to Montreal. Since moving to Montreal, the band has continued to draw upon new influences and develop their sound. Kid Lucifer’s influences range from classic rock such as The Doors, the Rolling Stones and The Ventures to modern garage and psychedelic rock bands including Thee Oh Sees, The Mummies, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and Twin Peaks. This all combines into the band’s unique blend of surf-tinged psychedelic garage rock.
In 2018, Kid Lucifer released their debut full-length album Nothin’ But Bangers, a record they believe is an accurate representation of their sound, and one that captures the energy and intensity of their live performances.
Kid Lucifer is currently recording their sophomore record, which is set for release in April 2019. The band has consistently played in and around Quebec and Ontario, and are known for their high energy and crowd-involved live shows. With slots opening for established touring bands including Sugar Candy Mountain and Amyl and the Sniffers, a month-long spring tour to support their upcoming album, and multiple festival appearances in Spring 2019, Kid Lucifer is consistently expanding their draw and building their reach with every show.
