The So So Glos are a punk rock band based in Brooklyn, New York. The band consists of Alex Levine (vocals, bass), Ryan Levine (guitar, vocals), Matt Elkin (guitar, vocals) and Zach Staggers (drums, vocals). They have toured the U.S. and Europe extensively on their own and are recognized for their active participation in New York's all-ages venues and the DIY movement. "[They are] hometown heroes," says Blackbook Magazine of the band's high level of community involvement, "They rule the underground, all-ages music scene in the city." As of early 2013, The So So Glos are gearing up to promote their newest album, Blowout!, which will be released this Spring.
Diarrhea Planet is a six-piece rock and roll band from Nashville, TN. Their sound has often been described as The Ramones holding Van Halen hostage with an arsenal of fireworks and explosives. Diarrhea Planet's four guitarists provide enough riffs to make Jack Black squeal like a schoolgirl, while lead singer Hodan delivers enough hooks to straighten the curl out of Justin Timberlake's hair. In a world of unintelligible lo-fi recording, reverb drenched vocals, and tuneless guitars, Diarrhea Planet aims to put the backbone back into rock and roll.
