About Brother O’ Brother
Defying notions of what a 2 piece act should be, Brother O’ Brother‘s live performance has been dubbed the best live performance in all of Indianapolis by multiple press outlets as well as the best rock band in all of Indianapolis by NUVO for 2017. Mix MC5 with early Black Keys and you’ve got it. B.O.B. has toured to the tune of nearly 200 dates in the last 2 years, received critical acclaim, played both Third Man Records locations, & pumped out more vinyl than one can imagine in the last few years on 6 different labels. On the heels of “NEON NATIVE” Brother O’ Brother will be releasing “Monster Truck” on Romanus Records in 2018 & continue their DIY fuzz ascent.
Veseria is a rock and roll fusion band from Indianapolis, Indiana. Fronted by the husband/wife songwriting team of Jen and Patrick Roberts and combined with the explosive musical talents of Kyle Perkon, Kels Arntzen, and Ben Jarvis, the band produces music that defies typical genre categorization and brings its audience to higher truths. Their 2017 release, “RLTVTY” was met with praise by critics and fans alike with HuffPost declaring it “Dynamic and visceral…” while Tattoo.com said the album is “A burning flame of passion and desire”. The band is currently working on its next release due out later this year.
About Joshua Powell & the Great Train Robbery
Joshua Powell is an artist from Indianapolis, IN, who handcrafts a strangely literate brand of psychedelic indie rock that manages to be simultaneously socially conscious and spiritually turbulent. With over 700 shows in over 40 states under his anachronistic studded belt, Powell blends the narrative richness of American folk with a heavy dose of hallucinatory swirl and a ghost note of ‘00s-vintage bedroom indie, all highlighted in ethereal falsetto by his purposeful, kaleidoscopic poetry.
