The Shrieks
The Shrieks
The Shrieks debut song and video "Rock,Rock,Rock!" from their first album "Chaos Road" is the essence of Rock and Roll pressed through a juicer.

This is an anthemic shriek, announcing equality for everyone to rock in their own medium.

In the video you can hear the painting, and see the music, total synesthesia.

The concept of Rock extending itself beyond music.

And ultimately, to Rock is a way of life.

Luis Accorsi, Omar Abdelhadi, Jeremy Sauber and Leo Corleone deliver the purest and most potent rock.
Mad Meg
Mad Meg
Mad Med consists of the singer-songwriter Ilya Popenko with his unorthodox raspy baritone and a perpetually changing constellation of musicians. However, at the core of the band is always a Kazakh rock drummer Ruslan Baymurzin, Berkley educated jazz pianist Jason Laney, and a multifaceted Igor Reznik on bass.

Mad Meg's sound is rather eclectic. It has elements of jazz, classic rock, punk, Russian folk, and cabaret music. The songs, haunting and neurotic possess a fair amount of debauchery, tragicomedy, and nostalgia. Dark and awkward lyrics paint a disturbing picture of a daily life of a lone urban dweller set to the background of upbeat minor key melodies. In Ilya's words: " These are the anthems of The Great American Indoors"

Currently based in NYC, Mad Meg has released one EP titled Shake It Like You're Dead and a full length album Puberty Tales.
Astra the 22s
Astra the 22s
Kerry Kaleja and Eric Jayk first met in 2011 while Kaleja was living in New York City. Originally from Riga, Latvia, Kaleja was looking for guitar lessons and stumbled onto Jayk's posting on Craigslist. At this time, Jayk was actively touring with Wildstreet. Three years later, the duo decided to form Astra the 22's.

Fusing their eclectic influenced ranging from The Kills to Michael Jackson to Nine Inch Nails to Blondie, Astra the 22's released their debut EP ‘’Blue Venom” in Sept 2014 and began performing in Europe. They appeared at festivals including: Vilnius Music Week in Lithuania, the Gaizin Kalns Festival, and the KLANG! Rock Festival. In 2015, they performed at the Gold Microphone Awards show the biggest music awards show in Latvia. The duo have done over a dozen interviews, and performed Latvian National TV/Radio. Their songs are in regular rotation on radio stations in Latvia & Lithuania.

In 2016, the band relocated to Williamsburg, Brooklyn and recruited bassist Rebecca Silber-Capalbo and drummer Luca Bertaglia.
Rebellion Lost
Rebellion Lost
Having been on the rise for over a year based out of Astoria, NY, The Rebellion Lost has proven time and time again their classic punk influenced rock and roll vibe strikes a chord at any of New York City’s local pubs or down and dirty venues, a glass of cheap beer strongly recommended but not required.

Their first release of EP, Punch Drunk collected compliments and attention for giving a nod to all the beautiful things Rock and Roll is supposed to be. With a highly punk influenced sound, The Rebellion Lost aims to support their local music scene first and foremost, drink some beer, and shout profanity second- but all three are most definitely welcome!
