Little Yellow Dog wants to see you cry while dancing uncontrollably. We want you to tell your ex to get bent and love yourself for who you are. We're sad so you can be happy. We're angry so you can be beautiful.We are based on the premise of living vicariously through others. We want to teach everyone who sees us how to be happy through all the strange moments we've all been through. Musically, we have a punky, folky, rocking kind of sound. Everyone has a good time. Yeah!

The Just Luckies are a band comprised of musical influences from Alabama, Chicago, Indiana, and Ohio. Having new members since their last release the band has evolved from their folk-rock sound to a more genre bending style that they've been calling twang-punk. Twang-punk embodies their influences like, rock'n'roll, blues, country, americana, but most importantly it represents the spirit of the music. From their super heroine-esque name, to their sharp critique-like lyrics, all the girls intend shake and liberate their listeners. As the lead guitarist once said "being a band of mostly queer women, we are spoiled." The Just Luckies create a safe respectful space for all, but stretch out a hand to those who've ever felt they don't belong.

Scubadiver is an energetic original alt rock trio hailing from Houston Texas. Their catchy sound wave will reintroduce your childhood imagination with your current reality.

ENGINES is a five piece noisy indie/punk rock band from Chicago. Originally conceived as a solo project for Philadelphia-based songwriter Craig Woods (TOWERS, ELDER, PETER AND CRAIG, TWO PIECE FEST) under the moniker HOT BAGELS, Woods moved to Chicago in 2014 and soon recruited fellow east coast transplants Lee Zickwolf (RIBBONHEAD, COSTANZA) and Jeff Twietmeyer (ALMOST ARGYLE) and Chicago native Justin Wexler (STILLWELL, FORGE AGAIN RECORDS) as permanent fixtures of the band. After two years of performing and writing as a four piece, they decided to add a full-time vocalist to the mix. Emily Jancetic (HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE, LONGDISTANCERUNNER), once lovingly described as the “the Kelly Clarkson of post-hardcore” by All Music Guide, joined in 2016. And thus ENGINES was born.
ENGINES plays a brand of indie/punk rock that is is loud but not lacking in dynamics. Noisy, but beautiful, Chaotic, but calm. Dissonant, yet melodic. Obsolete is the complete expression of all of these elements spread out over twelve songs that stand alone but also flow into one another over the course of thirty-six minutes.
