Beach Slang
Beach Slang
Guitar, bass and drums.
Played loudly.

We make good trouble.*
And better listeners.

Your Mom will think we're sweethearts.
We kind of are.

We hardly talk.
So we make records.**

And it feels good to feel like you finally belong.

*James also plays in Weston, Ed also plays in Crybaby and JP also plays in Ex Friends.

**Last Saturday, my friend Caroline told me, "You guys sound like what I imagine a one-night stand between The Psychedelic Furs and The Replacements would sound like."

I really kind of adore her for that.
Philadelphia-based Hurry began less as a band, and more as Matt Scottoline writing songs alone in his bedroom. Joined by a rotating group of friends for performances, early Hurry recordings were written and performed by Scottoline himself. More recently, Scottoline secured Rob and Joe DeCarolis (cousins) to join him on Hurry's debut LP, Everything/Nothing. Inspired by bands like Teenage Fanclub, Guided by Voices, and Yo La Tengo, the songs on Everything/Nothing are instantly familiar and accessible, with power-pop hooks and fuzzed out guitar solos.
Johnny Mainstream
Johnny Mainstream is a four-piece Indie Rock act out of Manchester, CT. Born in the Marist College dormitories of songwriter Matthew Maynes and bassist Dan Garaffa, Johnny Mainstream began writing honest folk songs inspired by Bob Dylan, Bright Eyes, and Kevin Devine, but infused with the punk rock ideals on which each was raised.

After graduation in 2007, Maynes and Garaffa returned to CT with the Johnny Mainstream brand intact. Through continual exposure at local venues like the Main Pub and Grady Tavern in Manchester CT, Johnny Mainstream began to amass a small following from fans, as well as the attention of other local musicians. Fans-turned-members, Brendan Donnelly and local mainstay and “Flu” alum Michael James Anderson now round out the group on drums and lead guitar respectively.

The band has toured behind their first two albums "Shipwrecked!" and "Ghost Broadway" and will release a new EP, "Break The Kettles and Sink The Ship" on June 23rd, 2015."
Dear Pines
Dear Pines is a three piece from central CT. Self proclaimed "thoughtful punk rock", their music spans the labels of melodic punk, emo, and indie. Emphasizing personal and social lyrical content, no nonsense riffs, and relatable dynamics, Dear Pines is like a cross between Jets To Brazil, Fugazi, and Piebald.
To date they've released a 3 song EP, and split with Guest House this past march. Riff more, twinkle less.
