Economy Cartel
Dirty Mike & the Boys

Hi, we're Economy Cartel a three piece punk band based out of Tuscaloosa Al. We are a very high-energy and very crowd-interactive group. We consider our music to be second-gen punk, raspy vocals, fast paced, thick and gritty guitar riffs, layered with intricate moving bass lines and intricate technical single-pedal jazz/punk style drumming, the Tuscaloosa locals refer to us as street punk but that's because were the only 'legitimate punk music' a lot of them have ever scene live. That being said we aren't super hard-core punk, our music is anything but sloppy, simple or poorly written.

Adding a southern flare to punk rock roots with a mutual bond through rock n' roll, Dirty Mike and the Boys was formed in 2011 by a group of old friends who have always had a hand in music. Fronted by Mike Hawkins (vocals, guitar) who along with Chase Kuykendall (drums) began writing the framework for what would become. In stepped Brad Finley (bass) to complete the original line up. After several member changes, Diego F (guitar, backing vocals) found his home as the final member of the band. With rock n' roll pride and Southern ethics, it's hard to keep from singing along with Dirty Mike and the boys!

Justify These Scars

Skeptic? - Punk from Birmingham AL
What's to say? Since 2001, punk rock from people who should be old enough to know better, but somehow just don't get the message. A frivolous waste of time, as well as an exercise in striving for mediocrity. But it's fun, though...Currently Birmingham's longest-running punk band. We've played all over the Southeast, hitting Alabama (obviously), Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana at least once.

Justify These Scars are one of the most successful punk bands in Birmingham, Al. The band currently receives air play on XM-Sirius Radio and hundreds of stations around the globe. Like most punk bands, J.T.S. formed in the basement of the lead singer (Mike "Frog" Ray) back in 2007. J.T.S. has gone on to do several regional and east coast tours. They have shared the stage with the likes of The Misfits, Agnostic Front, Murphys Law, Unkown Hinson, Helmet, Michale Graves, Dax Riggs, Marky Ramone, Whole Wheat Bread, Joe Buck/Hank 3, Deadbolt, The Murder Junkies, Maylene,Dr. Chuds X-Ward, and The Sons Of Disaster just to name a few. The band currently has 1 E.P. and 2 more CD's under their belt.

Don Coyote
Steel City Jug Slammers
Henry Dunkle

Don Coyote is a free-spirited, American band from the foothills of Tennessee. Blurring the line between bar band and cult, these juke joint renegades have made a name for themselves as the true underdogs of country music. Coming on strong like a shot of well whiskey, they warm the saddle with blue-collar ballads as diverse as the west is wide. They are sheriffs in merit, outlaws in attitude, and most likely terrible in the sack; but don’t underestimate their performance. This band commands the stage with an unbridled force that could turn George Straight crooked, Sawyer Brown red, and leave the whole room asking “Tammy, why not?"

Long ago there were many tales of a nameless, anomalous, blues ghost that roamed the lands in search of a vessel through which to expatiate its proficiency. It found a man named Ricky Tate. Shortly after, Rick heard tales of The Zookeeper, a man with a steel hand who fed only on ale, whiskey and blues. The boundless strings of fate connected them and the chronicle began.

Rebirth Brass Band - Direct From New Orleans:

Simply put, The Rebirth Brass Band is an institution. Formed in 1983, the band has long since graduated from the streets of New Orleans to theaters and festivals all over the world. Rebirth is committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands while at the same time incorporating modern music into their show. Their signature brand of heavy funk has placed them among the world’s top brass bands and they are the hands-down favorite among the younger generation. In reference to the sometimes-stringent competition amongst brass bands, Offbeat magazine remarked, “…it’s clear that Rebirth, which boasts 10 albums and has traveled the world, is the band to beat (July 2001).

Vintage Cowboys
Final Weapon
Crunk Witch
Doug Fine
Latin for Latin

Vintage Cowboys are a four member piece with a sound of rock and just a touch of country. The band came together after Zachary White-Lead Vocals, and Wesley Duren-Drums/Backup Vocals, had been experimenting in the studio with some material they had wrote. They ended up recording a demo early in the summer of 2011 with four songs which include: She's A Mad One, Madison, Lone Star State Of Mind, and Faded Bandana. After recording they immediately started looking for other members to complete the band. They didn't have to look far for a lead guitarist, which is Wesley's brother, Dustin Duren. The next thing was a bass player and they found a great one in Jonathon Tidwell. With the set complete they began practicing daily adding a more complete feel to the songs from the demo as well as writing new material. With enough material in hand they began playing live at local venues in and around Cullman, Alabama as well as bars in Birmingham, Alabama such as Zydeco, Matthew's Bar & Grill, and The Nick. Vintage Cowboys, although still a relatively young band, are already gaining a nice following and creating a buzz around the local music scene. They are getting ready to record a debut album in the spring of 2011 with new material that they are very excited for people to hear. WIth not even a year under their belt Vintage Cowboys are beginning to create a unique sound that is completely their own.

Hailing from Birmingham AL, Final Weapon is an up and coming synth driven rock group. Rooted in rock, J-pop, gaming and film scores, the band’s music is best summed up as unity in diversity, simplicity in complexity. Fronted by a Vocaloid singer, their signature blend of over-the-top solos and catchy melodies, underlined by complex arrangements, pushes the envelope of modern rock music and will have you humming their tunes for days.

This husband and wife duo known as "Crunk Witch", has been delivering fantasy filled electronic rock music since late 2009. Their quickly sold out debut, 'The Battle Beyond E.P.', was soon followed by the full-length record, "The Legends Of Manicorn". The band generated a heavy youtube buzz when their single, 'The Battle Beyond', was featured in a youtube video that was seen over 25 million times. After signing a licensing deal with Bunim/Murray (creators of Real World, Road Rules, Project Runway, etc.), the band won the award for 'Best Electronic Act' at the 2011 Phoenix Awards. On March 8th 2012, Crunk Witch released their sophomore album "Faith in the Thief" to positive reviews. The band now plays over 100 shows a year nationwide

Show-stopping singer Natalie Stovall's high-energy, take-no-prisoners live performances and relentless, barnstorming global tours have earned her the attention she deserves from those who matter the most to her -- the fans.

Blending her country/roots background with a strong rock sensibility, Stovall's fiddle-shredding shows are bred for wide audiences, and this year that mainstream popularity is paying off in a big way. In fact, it's the first time in over twenty years that a woman has been named Campus Entertainer of the Year in a category usually dominated by male artists.

Joshua Powell & the Great Train Robbery

“Joshua Powell and the Great Train Robbery” may not fit on a marquis, but the name suits the band just fine. Joshua and his folk band borrowed their brand from a 1903 silent Western and have crafted their sound in that sure-footed Americana tradition ever since. The crux of their music is in the storytelling – stories that embrace the fact that we are all human together. The band has two new releases: The Commonwealth EP, available for free on Noise Trade, and a new LP, Man Is Born For Trouble, available from digital outlets.

SETTLY & THE DISAPPOINTMENTS

Indie Power Pop Rock from Brooklyn, N.Y. - Settly is a self-taught musician who started his career playing in a Power pop cover band. He later started writing his own music and started a band called - Multiple Places. Multiple Places had a good regional following in his native town of New Orleans. But the success was cut short following the death of his lead singer. So Settly decided to move to New York to play guitar in Warner Bros. recording artist band -Raw Youth. After touring with them he got a job as a house engineer at New York's Tin Pan Alley Studios where he ended up working as second engineer for the Beastie Boys album "Ill Communications". He also recorded and co-produced Matador recording artist Railroad Jerk’s “One Track mind” and “The Third Rail” to critical acclaim as well as worked with artist such as Peter Holsapple and Glen Tillbrook. But soon the recording itch to record his music was in desperate need of scratching. So he moved back to New Orleans to work on his first solo recording project. The project was released under the band name ZOOM and 8 songs were released. ZOOM was just going to be a recording project but soon the band decided to start playing live. Several years of playing in and around the gulf coast took it toll on Settly and the band and they decided to split. Now Settly is back up in New York where he as just released his first solo self-titled CD.
"Settly" is a collection of songs showing his range and depth in his songwriting. With the CDs instrumental beginning to instrumental end, in-between you will find power pop-rock gems.

Great American Breakdown
Looksy

In 2005 TGAB put out their first EP “Wake You Nowa, Okinowa” on House of Love Records. In 2007 they split to venture off into other disciplines outside of music. During their break Codey Richards began playing with post-metal band Central Fires and later rejoined Greg Henderson in Azza Vega where they met their current bass player Daniel Hargett, member of Future Primitives. During this time a relationship was formed with the band Baak Gwai, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, that ultimately led to their current drummer also picking up a role in TGAB. In 2011 Breakdown reformed with Chris Zeiler, member of Baak Gwai, on drums and Daniel Hargett on bass.

Looksy was formed in the winter of 2011 from former members of the local Tuscaloosa band The Classic Flame, which was active from 2008-2010. Daniel Ingram, John Laing, and Kyle Posten were driven to make new music for people to enjoy and have a lot of fun doing it. The new band's sound is a mix of loud, energetic indie rock sensibilites with bluesy hooks and fuzz thrown in to round things out. After writing and performing in small stints throughout 2012, the band added longtime friend and guitarist Rob Keating to complete their sound and bring the lineup to its current state. The members of the band have been performing together since their high school days in Walker County, working at times in different bands and sometimes together before moving to the Tuscaloosa area in 2008. With two UA Alumni in the band and one current student, the members now consider Tuscaloosa to be their hometown.

New Orleans Suspects

Start with members of three of the top bands to come out of New Orleans, The Neville Brothers, The Radiators, and The Dirty Dozen - then add a saxophonist who was James Brown's horn director for 12 years, and a keyboard player with extraordinary talent, and you have The New Orleans Suspects. With well over a century of touring experience combined, this is a real band with genuine musicianship and more seasoning than any of New Orleans' greatest dishes. They have been making an enormous impact with their live performances across the country, and have established themselves as one of the brightest new lights out of the Crescent City. Funky drumbeats, greasy wailing saxophones, razor-sharp guitar playing, rollicking piano and swampy organ swells, strutting bass lines and tight vocal harmonies make this band stand above the rest. Just as the wind shifts over the Mississippi River, so does the music the band creates - strains of Dr John and the Nevilles, The Meters and Allan Toussaint, brass bands and piano legends, hot nights and sweat-soaked streets, all combine in an original way to create what is now known as The New Orleans Suspects.

JUCIFER
KINZIE

Jucifer - founded in Georgia in 1993, are pioneers of the sludge / doom metal two piece. They are notorious for their use of massive amplification, and for their entirely nomadic lifestyle.
Jucifer has spent all year, every year on the road since moving into their tour vehicle 12 years ago.
They typically utilize a wall of speakers approximately 10 feet high and 15 feet wide.
The band has performed steadily and released albums through the 90's and 00's on both major and indie labels as well as recently founding their own Nomadic Fortress label which is distributed by Relapse.
During the 90's Jucifer was based in Georgia, but in 2001 moved permanently into their tour vehicle. They have lived entirely on wheels for the decade since and have stated that this nomadic life was undertaken to facilitate playing "as many shows as we possibly can". Their endless tour typically covers 20 or more countries each year.
Jucifer shows are known for being extremely heavy and loud, blending elements of sludge, doom, black metal, death metal, thrash, crust, grind, drone, and noise with occasional melodic passages. Performances are ritual and cathartic, and frequently include improvised sections between or even during the songs. The guitar is downtuned to various non-standard tunings, which lends an unexpectedly pleasing quality to the high volume employed.
Gazelle Amber Valentine - Guitar, Vocals
Edgar Livengood - Drums

22 KINGS

**22 KINGS - Folk, Americana, Rock from San Diego CA - A friendship of over 15 years has morphed into one of the most exciting times in both Sam and Sandi's lives. Through hardships, life crises, tears and laughter, this last year has brought them closer together than ever before. As a result, they have moved to San Diego to spend 100% of their time focusing on creating music. To both Sam and Sandi, this seems to be the right time and right place: throwing themselves into songwriting and performing has proven to be what they should have been doing all along. It's a magical crossroads in their lives in which a loving friendship, talent, and a little luck may prove to take them to the top.
22 Kings was formed through an evolution of Sam Bybee and Sandi King singing harmonies together on Sam's last album, "I Hate Pretty Girls". It didn’t take long for the two to realize how special their sound could be.
Sandi began her singing career at the age of 10, harmonizing to her father’s music. Her love of music and her eclectic training and experiences in the musical world span from choirs, musicals, rock bands, jazz bands and rock operas. Her other love is food, having completed Culinary School and worked as a chef at various restaurants in San Francisco. It's been a busy and exciting time having been able to put a very promising and loved culinary career on the back burner as the prospect of following her first love -music- is becoming a reality.
Sam has spent the better part of 20 years as a singer/songwriter making music his priority, funding his passion with all kinds of jobs ranging from government contracting all the way to managing an upscale bakery. With 2 albums under his belt and a 3rd recorded but never released he has a wealth of experience and knowledge that has jumpstarted 22 Kings and the songwriting process with Sandi.
