What a lovely Saturday boys and girls!
Enjoy this weekend with fresh bands and solo artists...
Oh!Kelly is energetic, layered, and visceral.
The brain-child of Jared O'Kelley (VOX), Oh!Kelly composes American rock with the joys of Pop, the melancholy of Blues, and the empowerment of Punk into a self-proclaimed "identity crisis" that can bounce between Top-40 hooks and deep track ALT/indie broods like a sushi sampler served with french fries. Oh!Kelly's live show evokes a wide range of emotions that connect audiences of all ages, as nostalgic flare for 90's and early 00's headbang along in tracks like "History...Repeating" and "Nepotism", and progressive vibes fit the modern bill with "Howling at the Moon". This gumbo mashup of sub-genres is made possible by all-star musicians, seasoned respectively in their own backgrounds, ranging from Metal and Lo-fi to Top-40 and Gospel.
Delving back deeply into his Chicago Blues and Americana roots, DaSilva has emerged with some truly visceral new material, the culmination of months of soul searching, hard living and late night driving. The result? “Everywhere From Here”, Featuring the single “SHAKE!” released in July, 2017. ‘SHAKE!’ is the first single from DaSilva’s forthcoming new album entitled “Everywhere From Here” to be released in September 2017. Produced at nationally renowned TrunNoyz Studios in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, ‘SHAKE!’ captures the essence of Joel’s combustible new blues sound which combines elements of lo fi garage blues with a driving roots beat.
A Wild Frontier was started in the Spring of 2016 by former members of The Status, Ben Grant and Mike Felker. Even prior to The Status’ 2008 Doghouse records release (So This Is Progress), Ben and Mike had been writing together for 5 years. With hundreds of songs and unused demos since then to choose from, they began recording A Wild Frontier’s debut record in March of 2016. “Make It Count” was released on April 4th, 2017 and is available at all digital retail stores and is available on CD from the bands website .
In 2010, Tim Deschaine, former front man and guitarist for Los Angeles based band Nimbus, moved to Augusta, KS to start a family. After a short break, Tim arose from the ashes of the Nimbus project, to continue his passion for songwriting. He then threw himself headfirst into the Wichita music scene.
After weeks of searching for band members, in 2014, Tim called upon close friend and guitarist, Josh Gilbert, to join the ranks and bring his love of playing to the foreground. Through Josh came Flashpoint's first drummer whom brought the next core member and bassist Joshua Naval. Joshua's diverse knowledge of rhythm and understanding of structure, made him a perfect match for the group. With two years under Flashpoint's belt, a time came where the original drummer decided to part ways. Through friends and neighbors of the group, came Flashpoint's drummer Ammon Ohlson. Ammon, a self taught drummer and madman, was the missing element the band needed.
In under two years, The BarrBarians went from blasting Misfits songs in the van on the way to their gigs, to opening up for former Misfits’ lead singer, Michale Graves. This independent rock band from the windy shores of Asbury Park, NJ are taking their motivation and love of music and cultivating a following for their raw, head-banging sound. Their influences — bands like Green Day, Nirvana, Black Sabbath, Elvis, the Misfits (of course), and more — follow that same rough, but melodic pathway. Molding their sound and forming a fan base has been what these five rockers have been working toward, and it seems to be paying off.

Lilah Burger was born on July 7th, 1999 in Los Angeles, California. At the age of five, Lilah began taking piano lessons, and she continued to do so until age ten. At age fifteen, Lilah released her first official song, "The Good Guy." Upon the day "The Good Guy" came out, Lilah released many other singles like jazzy-rebellious "Oh, Darling" and nostalgic "Flicker Back To You." In June of 2017, Lilah's debut album 'Carnival' was released. Heavily influenced by Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and Harley Quinn and The Joker's love affair in Suicide Squad, 'Carnival' tells a tale of heartbreak and recovery. The title track, "Carnival," speaks of a love like a puppet show. "My life at the time of creating this album was a carnival in itself. I was going through so much at once; it was quite overwhelming. That's when the inspiration kicked in," Lilah says. "She's Not Real" cries out feelings of abandonment, while "Know-It-All" talks of a judgmental friend. "Incorporating Godinto my music is very important to me," Lilah states.
Olivia Henry grew up in Los Angeles, singing and writing poems. At an early age, she began classical vocal training with a Belgian Opera singer, and furthered her training in jazz, contemporary, and musical.
