Partner is funny, but not a joke. Gay but not for each other, as their Instagram tagline reads.

Partner is the “mature” effort of two best friends named Josée Caron and Lucy Niles from small town East Coast Canada. Borne of their bizarre and fortuitous friendship, Partner confidently harnesses the infinite power of Rock to explore a variety of niche yet strangely universal themes. Self described as post-classic-rock. Live they are a 5-piece and they shred.

Influenced by acts as varied as Melissa Etheridge, Ween, kd lang, and Prince, Partner delivers a refreshing and vital twist on a classic, prompting you to re-think what you thought was possible in Rock.

Their enthusiastic and action-packed live set has led them to be named the “best new band in Canada” in the Globe and Mail. Their debut album (In Search of Lost Time 2017) made NPR’s All Songs Considered, Stereogum, Noisey, Exclaim, CBC Music, Playboy and many more best of 2017 lists.

Partner is genre-defying and terrifying: part musical act, part teenage diary, and 100% queer.


Birdgangs is a garage rock band from Boston, MA, comprised of Jack Davis, Matt Bates, Julien Schremmer, and Fernando Echeverry. Self-described as “East Coast Rock Garage Surf-N-Turf”, the band formed in 2017. Since recording and releasing their debut EP ‘Maximum Suction’ in early 2018, they have been gigging consistently around the Northeast US, winning The Deli New England Best Emerging Artists poll. Birdgangs brings frenetic energy, infectious melodies, and an allergy for almonds wherever they go. Come out to a show, jump around, and say hi. They’re in desperate need of friends.

The Pyros

The Pyros are a band centralized in Burlington VT. We explore the rock genre, and make it explode with intentional lyrics, and solid personality. We are pretty regular people. Evan plays drums in many bands, enjoys local music, and works in a tool manufacturing warehouse. Levi is a talented upright, and electric bass player that was raised on a Vermont farm, and works for the state in protecting it’s beautiful lands. Steve is the songwriter, guitarist, and manager for the group. I am also writing this bio! I was born in Maine, and recorded our records DIY in our basement studio conversion. We are releasing two conceptual EPs in 2018: Zombie & Christian Mingle. They are 3 song collections with video accompaniment.
