Waking Things
Whether you want to label them indie rock, pop-rock, indie-prog, hard rock, or all of the above, Waking Things have spent the past handful of years proving they’re one of the most varied and forward-thinking rock bands in the Seattle scene today. Spearheaded by lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Chris Sicard, whose theatrical vocal presence is a dominating force throughout their music, Waking Things is the rare sort of band that isn’t afraid to incorporate elements off the beaten path for traditional rock, while still coming through with an uncompromising sound exciting and just familiar enough. Their penchant for passionate vocal performances, perky instrumentation, and iridescent melodies have kept them one of Seattle’s must-know artists of the modern era.
Manzanita Falls
Formed in the fall of 2011, Manzanita Falls is a four-piece indie-rock group from San Francisco Bay Area. They started out small, playing local shows while developing their distinctive sound. Influenced by bands like The National, Wilco, and The Frames, their sound is comfortably familiar and also uniquely Manzanita Falls. Originally slated to be released in November of 2012, Vinyl Ghost was delayed after the band went through a near-fatal car accident in Abilene, TX that left drummer, Matt Coit, with a fractured neck. After months of healing, the band is ready to go and excited to be bringing their dynamic tunes and captivating performances to a national audience.
Chilindrina is an up and coming noisepop band from the San Jose area. The quintet's sound is a result of growing up on Matador and 4AD and a back catalog of sad and noisy indie rock spanning the last 4 decades. Chilindrina began when bassist, Gloria Martinez, and guitarist, Jerry Lozano's previous group, a local San Jose dreampop group known as, Casting Circles, dispersed due to creative differences. The Two met drummer, Michael Walsh and guitarist, Sebastian Figueroa, also San Jose locals, at a Casting Circles show in San Francisco a few months prior to the band's split. Vocalist, Lizzie Whitfield's "singer for hire" internet post read well and soon the 5 piece began churning out some noisy and moody jams at their practice studio, which happens to be on old Victorian farm house built in the 1860s, in San Jose, CA.
