Giraffes? Giraffes!
Giraffes? Giraffes!
Guitar and drums duo GIRAFFES? GIRAFFES! have been expanding the conception of math-rock and experimental-pop since their explosion into the San Francisco Bay area in 2005. As part of the west-coast math-rock pioneers, many consider their second album "More Skin With Milk-Mouth" to be one of the quintessential albums that helped popularize the genre. With every new release, they continually make music that is both melodic and technical, experimental yet accessible- their innovative compositions and energetic live performances are known internationally to be both transcendental and incredible fun.
Mylets
Mylets
Mylets is a solo project by Southern Indiana native Henry Kohen.
Childspeak
Childspeak
Childspeak was formed in 2014 and at the time, all that was known was that in lieu of a singer would exist an A/V “front-creature” for the instrumentalists to dance around like banshees. Three years and several turns later, the group found that its formula of post-passive-progressive rock is able to speak pretty loud without a human voice. Bri, Derek, TJ, and Michael play music that colors between the lines to delight and leave the audience in a childlike state of wonder.
They have opened for members of prog-fathers King Crimson in addition to garnering an eclectic and devoted crew of misfit followers here in the PNW. Their first album “Day Dream Sparkle Party” is currently available on Bandcamp and their second is slated for a 2017 release.

Thom Simon
Thom Simon
thom simon started as a solo project in Santa Cruz, California, born from Jeff Wiseman's many long nights of smoking spliff, drinking 32s of High Life, and creating mazes of sonic patchwork by candlelight.
Using Jeff's background as a drummer, guitarist, and audio engineer, thom simon's visceral sound began to take shape, utilizing electronic drum sounds and riff-heavy guitar parts. It took on a bit more dynamic elaboration with the addition of Lindsay Kunhardt on keys and backup vocals.
Multiple influences are speckled throughout thom's catalog. Ranging from eerie and elegant songs such as "unknown" and "leaks" to danceable synth tunes like "move" and "weep woop" all the way to lofty dream sequences like "days" and "true," at times thom simon comes across as a complete rip-off and at others previously unheard and unthought. Now based out of Eugene, Oregon, thom simon is a roller-coaster of spacey funky new-wave buried in delay and reverb; a sure shot equation to get you on your feet.
