LATTERMAN
LATTERMAN hail from the annals of Long Island's suburban, cultish, punk/hardcore/emo history. Born into the hands of teenagers, LATTERMAN was a band from 2000-2006 who toured all the fuck over the place and in its lifespan mostly played (too loudly) to sparse rooms. Taking heartfelt bites, often earnestly, out of hard subjects like feminism and dismantling patriarchy, and keeping corporate influence out of DIY, they were a voice for equality in an overly homogenous scene. These reverberations can be seen today in countless imitators of their playing style and hopeful lyricism. LATTERMAN was one of the few bands in their time that both spoke out on political subjects and played catchy, melodic punk rock. They briefly reunited in 2012 and again in 2016 for a handful of NY area shows, a European tour, and a few festival appearances. The band members have all gone down different and better paths with their music and bands, though their influences are easily traceable to their shared origin in DIY punk. Members of LATTERMAN currently play with Iron Chic, RVIVR, Tender Defender, Laura Stevenson, and Young Ladies.

Slingshot Dakota
It doesn’t seem possible that the fuzzed-out rhythms and walls of sound coming from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, could be produced by anything other than a full-fledged guitar band. But, all that noise, energy and fun is the work of Carly Comando and Tom Patterson, the wife and husband duo who together make Slingshot Dakota the little band with the big sound. Combining a robust low-end with sweet and delicate melodies, Carly makes full use of her heavily effected keyboard while also providing vocals that are, in turn, sweet and polished or earnest and raw. Tom fills out the sonic middle ground with his drum kit, knowing just when to hold back and when to let loose and wail away. It’s a little bit pop, it’s a little bit punk, and it’s 100% fun. Their latest full-length, Break, was released last year via Topshelf Records, and they followed that up in 2017 with a seven inch called Broken.

Big Nothing
Born from a spit pact at Queen of Sheba in West Philadelphia, Big Nothing is four idiots completely out of touch with reality. They are hell bent on having a good time and bending the G string up to the note that the B string is playing. They worship Tom Petty and do a terrible job at representing that. Sometimes they want to tour a lot… other times they skip band practice to go to the mall… but no matter what, they will distract you from your meaningless life for twenty minutes — so give em a chance.
