Laundry Day
Laundry Day
Founded in the winter of 2014 with borrowed guitars and a month long trial of Ableton; Laundry Day began as an experiment amongst friends but quickly found traction both in their hometown of New Haven and in surrounding cities.

With shows at The Bowery Electric, and BAR, supporting roles for bands like You Won't, Frontier Ruckus, The Spring Standards, and Jeffrey Lewis. With friends in high and low places, Laundry Day are all too excited to see what their project has in store for them.
The Backyard Committee
Hi there. We are The Backyard Committee. We’re a roots rock indie jam band based in the pizza capital of the world, New Haven, Connecticut. For our sound, we strive for a Europe ‘72 kinda warmth, a wild-mercury-flavored Blonde on Blonde intensity, and a Bee Thousand-style recklessness. We’re not so into click tracks, samples, auto-tune or any kind of heavy processing. We are into loose arrangements and slightly out-of-tune guitars.

Our lineup changes from one show to the next, by design. Each member is encouraged to add his or her personal voice to the mix. The human element is very important to us, and we’d rather make mistakes in the pursuit of something out of reach than play it safe.

We exist for fellow music nerds who don’t like over-editing — on the records we enjoy most, the mistakes are our favorite parts.

We’re from New England, and we think the sound of our geography comes across in our music. We love where we live, and it’s part of who we are.

Our favorite shows to play are outdoor festivals, extended club dates and secret psychedelic parties in the woods.
Elison Jackson
Elison Jackson
Elison Jackson is a garage–folk/ psychedelic rock band from Philadelphia, PA & New Haven, CT. The band has put out three records and several bedroom-demo mix-tapes since 2011. Their third LP, “Do Not Fear To Kill A Dead Man”, was released in the fall of 2013 to critical acclaim. Featuring basement organs, haunted lyrics and Neil Young-esque guitar jams, their sound has expanded significantly from its folk roots, moving forward with a strong foundation into blues, 80's analog synth, and prog-rock. Their newest record, a 5-song collection titled "Silver Sounds: Hallucinations", takes a step further in the band's sonic progression. Heavier drums, driving synth, and atmospheric bowed upright bass fill out the songs in a way the band has never achieved before.

Staying busy since their beginnings in 2010, Elison Jackson has emerged as one of the most consistent and unique bands in CT. Sharing the stage with Elvis Perkins, Akron/Family, Mystic Braves, Simone Felice and other like-minded contemporaries, the band has built a loyal following in throughout the Northeast. The band won a Connecticut Music Award for "Song of the Year" in 2014 for their single '2009', and won the New England Music Award for "Songwriter of the Year" in 2015. Primary songwriter and singer Sam Perduta currently resides in Philadelphia, PA, after living and basing the band out of New Haven from 2012-2015.They are currently in the studio recording a follow up to "Silver Sounds: Hallucinations" at the infamous Blazone in New Haven, CT, and have been consistently putting out bedroom recordings throughout the fall and winter of 2016.
Area Man
Area Man (singer-songwriter Stephen Bak's pseudonymous self) is a project with roots in American folk music that are snarled happily betwixt Alternative and indie-rock elements. Transcendental Utopian imagery, scattered like bird droppings across the unpredictable Pollock canvas of postmodern existentialism, often becomes apparent in the songs.

The humble narrator knows that the above statement is, quite literally, full of shit.
