BEACH SLANG
BEACH SLANG
Guitar, bass and drums. Played loudly.

We make good trouble.* And better listeners.

Your Mom will think we're sweethearts. We kind of are.

We hardly talk.

So we make records.**

And it feels good to feel like you finally belong.

*James also plays in Weston, Ed also plays in Crybaby and JP also plays in Ex Friends.

**Last Saturday, my friend Caroline told me, "You guys sound like what I imagine a one-night stand between The Psychedelic Furs and The Replacements would sound like."

I really kind of adore her for that.
POTTY MOUTH
Potty Mouth are Western MA-based trio Abby Weems (guitar, lead vocals), Ally Einbinder (bass) and Victoria Mandanas (drums). Originating in 2011 from the hometown of guitar rock predecessors Dinosaur Jr., Potty Mouth emerged from a casual, "why not?" attitude when Einbinder, who met Mandanas at Smith college, set out to form a band with like-minded women who shared her interest in learning and growing together as musicians. Though no singer was chosen at the time of formation, Weems emerged as having a knack for melodies and lyric writing, and what started out as a casual pastime turned into a way of life; recording, making t-shirts, and planning tours soon came in natural succession.

One year after their formation, the band recorded a 12" vinyl EP, entitled 'Sun Damage,' released through three small, independently-run labels. 'Sun Damage' garnered the attention of Pitchfork, who called the six-song EP an "an impressive, no-filler debut," as well as local big-hitters The Boston Globe, who named Potty Mouth one of the top five indie-rock bands to watch in 2013.

In 2013, Potty Mouth signed with Brooklyn-based indie label Old Flame Records to release their debut full-length album, 'Hell Bent.' NPR music premiered the album, calling it "one of the best rock albums of the year." As Potty Mouth garnered national attention, the band began to tour more extensively, co-headlining their first full US tour with Perfect Pussy and Swearin' in summer 2014, as well as supporting artists like Waxahatchee and Juliana Hatfield.

On August 21, 2015, the band debuted a five-song self-titled EP under their own imprint, Planet Whatever Records. Produced by John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Blonde Redhead, Bikini Kill) at London Bridge Studios in Seattle, the new EP shows off a new level of both songwriting and production for the trio. Refreshingly candid, singer-guitarist Abby Weems weaves sarcasm and melancholia into a passionate performance held together by drummer Victoria Mandanas and bassist Ally Einbinder's solid foundation. The crisper direction emphasizes the work the triad has put in since 2013's 'Hell Bent,' with more vocal harmonies and bigger production, recalling the sounds of influences like Veruca Salt and Nirvana.
DYKE DRAMA
Dyke Drama is the solo project of Sadie Switchblade (G.L.O.S.S., Peeple Watchin', Baja Blatz, etc.) She played drums, bass, guitars, tambourine, and sang. Joey Seward played the organ. Vicky Cassis and Rosie Richeson sang backup on "The Thing I Do Best" and "Thelma & Louise".

"With its obvious and acknowledged Replacements comps and unapologetic emotional openness, Dyke Drama could probably most easily be compared sonically and spiritually to Beach Slang, another coastal band that was definitely feeling Minnesota this year. But where The Things We Do to Find People Who Feel Like Us found strength and salvation in its arena-rock dreams, Tender Resignation seeks no such affirmation — Switchblade's not interested in breaking guitars or riding the wild haze, she's too exhausted from crying in a bathroom stall and spending the whole day in her f**king bed." --Spin
