"Conjuring up a swampy fusion of surf, garage rock, and rockabilly that suggests the Cramps hitting the beach midway through a drunken bender, Guantanamo Baywatch are from Portland, OR, with a reputation for their manic live shows, gloriously tacky stage wear, and enthusiastically greasy approach to surf music. In 2011, they signed with Portland garage punk label Dirtnap Records, and the band's first album, Chest Crawl, appeared in the spring of 2012. The group jumped to Suicide Squeeze Records for its third long-player, 2015's Darling... It's Too Late. For their fourth album, Guantanamo Baywatch expanded to a quartet, with second guitarist Jordan Owen debuting on the group's 2017 release Desert Center." -Mark Deming
Human Ottoman is a cello, vibraphone, drum-set power trio! Susan Lucia (drums), Julian Kosanovic (cello), and Grayson Fiske (vibraphone).
After meeting in Oregon as music school misfits, they joined forces, quickly creating a repertoire of raucous, rhythmically dynamic music which combined their enthusiasm for music of all cultures with classical backgrounds and modern genre-mashing-jazz sensibilities, characterized most of all by their unique instrumentation. From brain-crashing cello solos and atomic vibraphone drops, to drum solos that scholars are still struggling to understand, Human Ottoman is bringing polyrhythmic rock to the masses.

"L.A.'s Smokescreens specialize in a moody pop that wouldn't sound out of place on the Slumberland records catalog in 1991 or Flying Nun around 1986. You could call it twee, but this is pop music that is toothsome and robust." -Noisey
Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona: “Even if you’re a Sunday-morning blues lawyer who only appreciates 'serious music,' there’s no denying that Playboy Manbaby has been playing long enough to form a bona fide musical chemistry—one that would fit well onstage supporting (or blowing away) the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion." -Eric Shea
