Check out brief summaries and links for each playing RECESS FEST:::
AVOCADO HAPPY HOUR (MD)
Minimalist masters layer cotton-soft vocals with busy marimbas and similar percussions, creating some of the most delicate pop you've ever heard. Coming all the way from Baltimore!
AWESOME SHIRT (TN)
Tennessee boys who used to be into techno got the munchies for something more epic. Awesome, obviously.
BACKSEAT DREAMER (SC)
Deep and danceable electro-pop packed with big synths and bigger beats.
BOB FIELDS (NC)
One of Charlotte's most dedicated and consistent solo performers will perform a very special set for Recess Fest with help from some friends. Do not miss this!
BUBBLY MOMMY GUN (GA)
The best band out of Athens, GA! Tripped out, fun and funky pop ditties at their finest.
COMEBACK RANCH (MD)
Party, make noise, relax, repeat.
Catchy guitar-heavy pop rocks piled high with 4-way vocal attacks!
GIANT LION (GA)
High times in lo-fi. Big pop tunes presented in gentle, hearty formats.
GIRLY TEMPLE (NY)
Brooklyn-braised weirdness from a girl and her machines.
HOLY GHOST PARTY (MD)
Minimal noisy noise from Baltimore, featuring members of Dope Body!
HUMAN PIPPI ARMSTRONG (NC)
A Charlotte legend and regional hero, Pippi does roughneck rock jock jams like no other.
Blaring geeked out sci-fi tropic techno free tech anthems not found anywhere else, ever. (mems of Calabi Yau)
Ridiculously catchy garage pop gems, laced with fine vintage fuzz.
RED SNAPPER (NC)(http://www.myspace.com/hukkaberry)
Mini spiritual masterpieces, built in the mountains of North Carolina by a family of friends.
ULTIMATE OPTIMIST (NC)
Repetitive jams for thinking and for sleeping. Sometimes big, sometimes small.
