Michael Mango, Pete Lim, Scott Thompson and Brian Wiltsey @ Eddie’s Attic
Spoon-fed his musicality from radio-loving parents, Michael wrote his first song at 14 and has never looked back. By today’s standards, you can compare him to the likes of David Gray and John Mayer, accented with a smooth voice reminiscent of Sting or Bono. His sound is an organic blend of rock, pop and soul, undeniably fresh and contagious.
The Shine Brothers w/ Abby Go Go @ The Earl
If The Everly Brothers were invited to The Birthday Party, The Shine Brothers, a liberal dose of melodic mayhem, would be the party favor. Waving the ‘psych-my-delic’ banner, The Shine Brothers achieve an alchemic balance of sunshine pop song structures and howling devilish rhythms, crowned by dirty woven vocal harmonies.

Impalers (members of Hatred Surge), Manic, Mercenary, and Paradox @ 529
The Impalers are a ripping new band from Austin, TX, with Mike Sharp of Hatred Surge on drums and Chris Ulsh, the main man behind Mammoth Grinder, supplying everything else. Basically, if MG took more influence from Swedish d-beat instead of the Swedish death metal they’ve been aping on their last few releases, and Motörcharged the result, you would have this. The drums are at a pretty constant d-beat, the bass is nice and thick, the vocals sounds like modern-day MG, and the guitar chainsaws through everything.
