| Petite League |

Living together in famed Syracuse house venue Scarier Dome hosting shows for touring bands, producing live video sessions, starting a screen printing business while also learning the ins-and-outs of self-recording and releasing records was the foundational stepping stone upon which Petite League was created. Lorenzo Gillis Cook, songwriter and composer, along with drummer Henry Schoonmaker, came out of the gates swinging with their signature infectious lo-fi power pop releasing their two first records before graduating from college that same year.

Petite League’s melodic sun kissed brand of indie rock started the buzz right away with some immediate industry, streaming, and publication recognition which helped propel the band forward from the jump. The band continued to shape itself into a staple of the New York indie rock scene as the band moved to Queens in 2016 enlisting the help of other ex-Scarier Dome residents Adam Greenberg and Kevin McCallum as part of the live band. The DIY mindset of operating Scarier Dome is still the backbone of what Petite League runs on to this day as they continue to release music prolifically, cultivate their online presence, and tour throughout the United States.

| Bruiser and Bicycle |

Described as the “progressive dream pop of your favorite nightmare” the band Bruiser & Bicycle is ever-evolving, their sound falling somewhere between jangle rock and experimental pop. The driving force behind the band’s artistic creation has remained the mindful, expressionist songwriting of its members, whose exploratory writing takes the form of grandiose song structures, call-and-response passages, and confrontations with the unfamiliar.

| The Burning Sun |

The Burning Sun are alchemists of sound. With stamina that harnesses the energy of their namesake, this power quartet rotates instruments throughout their discography and live performances to create a panorama of unpredictable melodies, intricate rhythm changes and atmospheric tones. 

Locals to Burlington, VT (unceded Abenaki territory), Katy Hellman, Steven LeBel, Bo Malcolm and Addie Herbert weave together their eclectic musical influences which include folk, psych rock, prog rock, punk and ancestral sounds. The group works in close collaboration writing and arranging all their music. What emerges reflects the deep wells from which they draw, deriving a signature sound from soaring vocals and evocative lyrics.  

The Burning Sun lays bare the grandness (and absurdity) of being alive; the explosive highs and chaotic lows. Bursting with personality and conviction, their music urges us to never lose sight of life’s possibilities.
