Five Of The Eyes:
A mind altering assault of energy and performance, Five Of The Eyes is Portland Maine's newest rock act to hit the scene. Blending influences of Prog, Funk, and Latin, this is a group that will make you funk dance yourself into a full blown explosion of head banging rock. How about you salsa over to the … NOPE CAUSE NOW THEY’RE ROCKING YOUR BODY INTO CONVULSIONS. Try to tear your eyes away from the body melting heat as vocalist Darrell Foster tears up the stage with dance moves that put James Brown in a cold sweat. Or the shredding licks of a black tongued Giraffe under mind control by the tenacious guitars of Ned Rich and Tim Meehan. Or the rhythmic symphony of Thomas Meehan and Peter Griffith BEATING THE DRUMS AND BASS STRAIGHT THROUGH THE FLOOR BOARDS INTO ANOTHER DIMENSION. Familiarize yourself with their brand new EP before they blow your face apart.

"...a self-titled, self-produced first studio effort that’s arrestingly dynamic, heavy yet danceable, and deceptively melodic. It draws on the progressive metal roots of many of the band members, but it brings in further Latin, funk and pop elements. It’s one of the strongest debuts from a new Maine band in the past two years, and it’s already helped the band garner some early buzz as a seriously awesome live act." 

-Emily Burnham (Culture Shock, Bangor Daily News)

The Shills -

Hailing from Boston, MA a genre-bending rock outfit that have made a name for themselves by taking complex musical ideas, and making them feel effortlessly infectious. With a sound that can go from driving rock rhythms to lush, lofty sonic soundscapes, versatility is the band's true stock-in-trade. From Queen, to Queens of the Stone Age, Yes to Radiohead, Motown to Metal, Punk to Jazz, the band's influences are virtually innumerable. As any of their fans will tell you, the only way to get any sort of handle on what The Shills' music is all about, is to simply check it out yourself.

Clara Junken:

Clara brings those greats of the 70's to a more modern element of indie blues rock. Crooning tunes akin to Led Zeppelin, Joni Mitchell and Fleetwood Mac, she'll bring the blues back to the future and slap you in the face with her raw impeccable vocal melodies. Boasting a truly dynamic and well produced album, Out To See is one not only to be played on repeat, but a piece of art to be experienced live.
