Kid Brother
Kid Brother
Kid Brother is an independent band from Northern Virginia, founded when the celestial space gods called upon Chris, Dylan, Lindsey, Sam, and Christian to go forth and create a band in the spring of the year of our lords, 2016. Focused on originality and genuine lyricism, Kid Brother fuses together elements from rock and roll, indie, folk, and blues to create a sound that is their own.
MILO In The Doldrums
MILO In The Doldrums
Milo in the Doldrums is an indie rock band hailing from the sandy beaches of northern VA. Tinged with melancholia and uplifted by a love of life, Milo in the Doldrums harnesses the power of music to overcome the despondency of the modern world… and, y’know, do stuff!

In 2015 Rob Mays began playing Milo songs solo at open mic events at Epicure Cafe in Fairfax, VA while also working with radical friends to record a self titled EP. Later that year, he met a funky young drummer/bartender/ankle model named Danny Ortiz and Milo’s heartbeat was forged. Their first show ever, also at Epicure, became snowed out -which totally sucked! -but gave them a chance to start working with another Epicurean, open mic host and unprofessional go-go dancer Reis DeBruyne. With Reis on bass, the band became a thundering trio -and the snow was forced to melt. Despite killer early shows, something was still amiss. Cue Rob’s boss, Richard Smith, who inquired about joining this hot, sweaty, sometimes sticky band. After demonstrating his wizardry on guitar, and promising not to fire Rob for burning the bananas (again?!), the band evolved (if you believe in that sort of thing) once more and Milo in the Doldrums officially became the tightest, sexiest, miracle of life you know and love today! After completing their first tour, Daniel Ortiz felt the marionette strings of life pulling him away to other musical shores, and peacefully left Milo in the spring of 2017. Luckily, Milo's good buddy Ryan Burke, an aggressively savage punk drum kingpin, took the reigns to take Milo into a new era of rhythmic awesomeness!!!

The Duskwhales
The Duskwhales
The Duskwhales are a three-piece indie rock band formed in Manassas, Virginia in 2010. Their sound is reminiscent of 60's groups such as The Beatles and The Doors through prominent use of keyboards and memorable vocal harmonies. While incorporating the best elements of their psychedelic roots, the young trio creates a sophisticated style of their own in both studio and live settings. They have shared the stage with national acts Car Seat Headrest,Diane Coffee, Little Green Cars, and Frankie Cosmos, as well as performed to packed audiences across the East Coast. Their latest album Sorrowful Mysteries is set to release in spring 2017.
