The Mondegreens
The Mondegreens
The Mondegreens is a rock group based in Seattle, WA churning out a new take on “California Soul”: song-based rock & roll, infused with R&B, psychedelia, and folk. With an infectious, harmony-driven sound that combines the raw passion of The Avett Brothers with the diverse soundscapes of Grizzly Bear, their sought-after live shows can “run from dusty, shambling Americana to bright and modern in a single set.” Before nestling into the Pacific Northwest in 2015, The Mondegreens spent three years forging solid bonds with audiences and refining their live performances across the western U.S. The boys toured constantly, playing strings of shows that invariably included the entire West Coast, but also extended from San Antonio, TX to Bozeman, MT, from Tucson, AZ to Jackson, WY.

As California valley natives, Jack Knight (guitar/vocals), Russell Rabut (guitar/vocals), and David Friedlander (bass/vocals), began collaborating in 2007, coming together around roots music, vocal harmony, and songwriting. Scotty Jenkins (percussion) was recruited prior to their 2015 tour to Austin’s SXSW, completing their current lineup. As at ease at an intimate house concert as they are on a festival stage, The Mondegreens continue to capture the attention of audiences of all shapes, ages, and sizes.
Jackson Boone & The Ocean Ghosts
Jackson Boone & The Ocean Ghosts
Jackson Boone is a songwriter who quietly emerged from the misty magic of Portland, Oregon. His music has been featured by KEXP, Stereogum, Impose Magazine, and numerous other publications. With his band, Jackson Boone & the Ocean Ghosts, he has performed at festivals like SXSW, Treefort Music Festival, Pickathon, and the CMJ Music Marathon. The band has also toured through Portland mainstays like the Bunk Bar, Mississippi Studios, and Doug Fir, as well as venues across the country.

In 2015, Jackson Boone & the Ocean Ghosts, along with producer Riley Geare, packed up their equipment and set up along the Oregon Coast, where they spent two weeks tracking a record by the beach, which resulted in the album, Natural Changes.

In March 2017, Jackson Boone will be releasing his newest full length studio album, Organic Light Factory, which features Jackson’s most realized and mature songwriting to date. The album showcases the band’s natural changes as a byproduct of constant touring and writing. Jackson Boone & The Ocean Ghosts will be embarking on tour to support this record while continuing to refine their sound on the road.
Red Heart Alarm
Red Heart Alarm
Red Heart Alarm is a roots rock Americana Alt Country band hailing from Seattle, WA. Their sound which marries their native city’s Grunge legacy with the melodic twang of classic Americana/Roots music. The result of this Seattle Rock-Country experimentation are their two albums: White Elephants, released in 2010, and Hammer Anvil Stirrup, released in 2014.
The City Hall
The City Hall
The City Hall is a songwriting, production, and performance project created by Luke Hogfoss and Casey Dunau. With the help of an ever-growing list of friends and collaborators, they create music that is the sonic equivalent of throwing gushers, broken camcorders, and birthday tears into an ez-bake oven—in other words, sugary pop with a salty aftertaste.
