Bad Wolves


Somewhere between technical metal and anthemic hard rock lives Bad Wolves. Charged with thought provoking lyrics and heavy riffs, there is something special about a hard hitting band that not only have their own songs but can also do an inspiring cover of The Cranberries “Zombie” that will have you banging your head. They released Disobey in 2018 and it’s definitely worth listening to.

My Bloody Valentine


When you think of bands ahead of their time, you often think of bands that have had their records become more influential over long periods of time. By sparking sub genres in small clubs and dive bars, My Bloody Valentine is the band for the modern indie, shoegaze scene. Led by Kevin Shields on guitar, My Bloody Valentine has had a unique take on noise in songwriting, different than their art rock counterparts leaving a translucent glimmering sheen, like a textured audible wave.

After 2 years of touring, member changes and label shifts, Shields and the band decided to build their own studio for their new album and have headlined major festivals like FYF Fest and Desert Daze.
