Elephant Wrecking Ball
Elephant Wrecking Ball
"Accosting and deliberate, Elephant Wrecking Ball is something fresh for the Boston music scene."

"...a sideways concoction of Berklee misfits..."

- Performer Magazine

"An engine room oiled up with jazz, funk, dub, and the outer cosmos."

- My Secret Boston

Scott was a humble second year student at Berklee College in Boston working a job testing video games, when he decided to spend half of his summer paycheck on several effects pedals for his trombone. As a member of internationally-touring reggae group John Brown's Body, and living within the thriving Boston music scene, it wasn't hard to find some friendly fellow bandmates who wanted to start a musical group of unprecedented scientific destruction. He found a drummer and bass player who were not only fully accomplished musicians in their own right, but they also played so well together as a pair that it was truly frightening. With the addition of bassist Dan Africano and drummer Neal 'Fro!' Evans, Elephant Wrecking Ball was born. An unorthodox trombone trio with a powerful and organic sound, Elephant Wrecking Ball is unlike anything you've ever heard before. They perform music utilizing unique, scientific tones of fully cosmic demolition, and are influenced by everything from death metal to heavy dub. Prepare yourself to experience the serene madness that is Elephant Wrecking Ball.
A Locomotive
A Locomotive
Based in Brooklyn, a Locomotive deliver a sound that's sometimes saloon style country, other times a modern take on heartfelt folk. Drawing influence from bands like The Heartbreakers and Wilco, their self titled release is a collection of songs written by songwriter William Gross while living in San Francisco. Don't miss out on this record release party and help celebrate a Locomotive's first full length album!
Buffalo Jump
Buffalo Jump
Buffalo Jump is a NYC-based band that has been playing shows in Brooklyn for the past six months and recently completed a pair of demos, recorded at their rehearsal space and guitarist/bassist James Hicken's apartment. The band plans to release a proper EP within the next few months.

Buffalo Jump began as a series of jams between good friends Colton Tracy (guitar, vocals) and Trevor Tattan (drums, vocals) in the fall of 2009. A few months later they started renting a room at a rehearsal space in the Lower East Side and began putting together a large catalogue of loosely arranged songs. After playing casually for a year and a half, they finally decided to put an ad on Craigslist for another musician and came across a reply from Hicken. Immediately discovering a mutual love for tall boys and lo-fi 90s rock, the three began practicing regularly throughout the summer of 2011 until Hicken temporarily relocated to India. During that time, Tracy and Tattan began playing with guitarist and vocalist Elliot Rayman, who they met on the set of a music video being shot by good friends and fellow NYC band The Dig in lower Manhattan. The three started working on older material and writing new songs and, by the time Hicken returned from India in May of 2012, had a show lined up and began writing as a four-piece.
