JEFF the Brotherhood
JEFF the Brotherhood
JEFF consist of brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall - an explosive 2-piece of 1970's inspired post-punk-riff-rock. No throwback act, JEFF's unending consistency makes their bare-bone rawness a contemporary calling card. Fall of 2010 will see the release of their sixth full-length. Known as a tireless live act, JEFF The Brotherhood have co-billed tours with Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, Shonen Knife, Screaming Females and Ty Segall. And they are also the founding members of the infamously defunct Be Your Own Pet.

"JEFF The Brotherhood seem like the type of boys that would steal both your whiskey and your sister's virtue, and still earn a standing invitation to play your basement." - Village Voice

"Boozy and Ballsy" - Ohmyrockness.com

"Just try to get through one of their sets without stomping your foot and pumping your fist." - Nylon Magazine
Hunters
Hunters
Equal parts Motorhead, Sonic Youth and maybe the early Misfits, Hunters boast an aggressive, raw style of punk. Since February, they've been rising through the ranks, thanks to a 2-song offering mixed by Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs).
Shellshag
Shellshag
Theres only two people in Shellshag. Shell and Shag. Shell plays guitar and sings while Shag plays drums standing up and also sings. She has bells sewn on her belt and ankles, so there's lots of frantic wiggling to coax the noise out of them. They both sing into a mic stand they built themselves that's shaped like a Y, so they face each other while they play. They're known for putting on shows that bring the house down, sometimes literally. You can always expect some crowd surfing, things being thrown across the room, and the singing along that sometimes threatens to drown them out. The end of their show usually results in the two of them either building a sculpture out of their instruments, amps, and themselves, or completely smashing Shag's drums.

Shellshag run and own Starcleaner Records. They released their most recent record,"Rumors in Disguise," on Don Giovanni Records on Feb 9th 2010.
