Badfish, a Tribute to Sublime
Badfish, a Tribute to Sublime
The phenomenon known as Sublime, arguably the most energetic, original and uniquely eclectic band to emerge from any scene, anywhere, ended with the untimely death of lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Brad Nowell in May of 1996. But encompassing the sense of place and purpose long associated with Sublime's music, Badfish, a Tribute to Sublime continues to channel the spirit of Sublime with a fury not felt for some time. What separates Badfish from other tribute bands is that they have replicated Sublime's essence, developing a scene and dedicated following most commonly reserved for label-driven, mainstream acts. Badfish make their mark on the audience by playing with the spirit of Sublime. They perform not as Sublime would have, or did, but as Badfish does!
Strange Machines
Strange Machines
Strange Machines is Ricardo Barraza and Mike MacDonald on guitars and vocals, Bill Noonan on drums and Kris Hanson on bass. Mike and Ricardo have been playing in bands together since 2006, yet 2010 marks the beginning of their songwriting venture. Blending genres such as reggae, rock, jam and funk, Strange Machines have set high standards for their musical aspirations. Combining soulful melodies and harmonies with intricate instrumentation, they have created a unique sound that radiates with listeners. Catchy hooks & choruses met with high powered improv jamming makes this band a force to be reckoned with.

Strange Machines has an impressive resume for such a new band, playing several sold out shows at popular Boston venues such as The Middle East Downstairs, Hard Rock Cafe and Davis Square Theatre, as well as packed venues throughout New England. In October of 2012, the band played to a full room at the famous Bitter End in New York City.

With the release of their first studio EP "Space Cadet", Strange Machines plans to take the New England music scene and the country by storm.
Avon Junkies
Avon Junkies
For the past few years, the ability for a band to grow musically meant completely changing their sound. Moving forward meant adapting to every other band around them in an attempt to be recognized for their “individuality”… just like every other band. When Avon Junkies started doing their thing 13 years ago, they set out to play rock. And 13 years later, they still play rock. Though their sound has perfected itself at the end of every year by adding something new or taking their music a step further, they haven’t so much adapted as they have evolved.
Sonic guru Adam Tilzer has orchestrated Avon Junkies’ homegrown blend of punk, ska and classic rock and dressed it in the skin of New York City. Taking on the roles of frontman, guitarist and songwriter he leads the charge of the Junkies musical assault, along with fellow Junkies’ co-founding father Mike Reinhart beating the battle drums. The low-end is more than ably supported by California transplant, Julian Salvador, while the Junky circle is completed by horn-playing siren Stef “Lady Junky” Azzarelli, ‘bone-daddy, James “Kid Junky” Castoro, and trumpeter extraordinaire and “original smooth-and-soulful”, Anthony Napoletano.
Avon Junkies have worked tirelessly over the past 2-years-and-change to proudly offer up The Lesser Evil, the sum total of every waking minute of this band for the better part of 730 days. The metaphorical next act of their performance, The Lesser Evil is the balance point between emotion and hilarity and promises to be the crowning achievement for the Junkies play for musical domination. Every song, every note, every sound, every decision… each one a testament to the driving determination of this band, barraging your brain with the full sound of what a band is supposed to sound like: the sound of progress; the sound of evolution.
