This event is all ages

Furnsss is the garage-tinged fuzz pop project led by Brendan Dyer. With compositions that call to mind what could be the raw b-sides of early Built To Spill, the band is the product of suburbia induced boredom born out of Connecticut. They split their time between Connecticut, Ohio, and Philadelphia rotating members when some are in school.

Their taste in music defies their age, citing influences that range from Pavement to Velvet Underground. Furnsss' take on life as a suburban youth is as ambitious as it is refreshingly raw. VICE called their music "druggy dream pop that feels tailor-made for being played in a basement at high volume while you burn through a six-pack and a box of whippets—but don't let the band's parents catch you." Though they may seem chaotic or ramshackle on the surface, there's definitely something to be said for their slight of hand. Look closer and you'll find a sense of restraint, an truly impressive ability to nod to their musical heroes rather than mimic them (not easy for teens), and a quiet, mature confidence.
Aye Nako
Three weirdos trying to find their confidence/sexuality/harmony/pay day.
Point Bonita
Point Bonita is a rock band basing their sound on the heavy use of consistent leading basslines, interchangable lead and rhythmic guitar lines, marcus on drums, and random obnoxious yelling in between.
Spit-take is a three-piece indie rock band from New Haven, CT. Formed in Willimantic, CT in 2013, Spit-take features former members of a host of now-defunct DIY punk bands, including Book Slave, Osier Bed, and Secret Parts.
Terrible Roars
Terrible Roars is the main musical outlet of multi-instrumentalist Ross Page. After writing for a year and releasing an album in California, he moved back to his home state of Connecticut, and brought together a group of friends for live performances. Vice called their recent single Cottons a “lo-fi anthem” and “reminiscent of 90s emo but without all the prepubescent yelling.” Their upcoming EP “Wolf Suit” is set for release in Spring 2015 on Seagreen Records.
