WOODGROVE - "Singing songs about ghosts and dead gods with a little too much poppy falsetto and nowhere near enough fuzz." That's how the Virginia-based band describes their sound. Loud and heavy, but with dynamic shifts that lead into a world of groove and ambiance. Woodgrove came into being, as did the genre ’Paxil Pop,’ after a long summer of introspection in 2016. After a number of solo shows, Virginia native Jared Hall Garland (guitar/vox) was joined by Max Haag (drums), Logan Leverett (guitar), and Jake Wentzel (bass) to move the band forward in a much heavier and all-encompassing direction. While Garland still plays solo shows with nothing but his suitcase drum, guitar, and voice, the full band has become the prime directive for the group. Basing their entire venture out of the Northern Virginia metro area of DC, the band has had a firsthand view of the changing social landscape. Focusing on a blend of ambience and groove, on polarizing songwriting and introspection, the four-piece welcomed the chaos that was 2017 by trying their best to play music as a coping mechanism.

APEX - Apex is a four piece metal band hailing from Silver Spring, Maryland. The group formed in 2017 and quickly became recognized for their energetic live shows and an undeniably unique, hard hitting songwriting. Apex is set to release their debut full length album under a new lineup (Tommy Noone - Vocals/Guitar, Chris Horton - Guitar, Beckett Milzman - Bass, Sam Kerns - Drums) in early 2021.

Graffiti Soundstage - Hailing from the suburbs of Northern Virginia, Rock and Roll trio Graffiti Soundstage”s message is all about capturing the essence of rock as well as being a new take on a classic sound. With members
