    The Looking

    Rock

    Todd Carter grew up in Carmel, a suburb just north of Indianapolis. Like almost all kids growing up in America, his earliest musical memories came drifting through the airwaves in the back seat of his parent’s car.

    “It was the heyday of classic 70s radio, with bands like Wings and Bread and America,” Carter remembers. "It wasn't long before I was clipping those dodgy Columbia House music club ads out of magazines and secretly sending away for cassette tapes of Iron Maiden and Foreigner. I loved hiding this activity from the rest of my family, smuggling the precious contraband from mailbox to bedroom. There's just something magical about listening to music on the sly... it was like finding messages in a bottle, but instead they arrived in little plastic cases."

    .357 Lover

    Alternative Rock

    .357 Lover is a Brooklyn-based band whose songs are inspired by grandiosity of arena rock, the lure of time travel, the technicolor haze of childhood, Victorian steampunk science, the beauty of women and the lust for immortality.

    .357 Lover have supported They Might Be Giants and Ben Folds, introducing their fantastical style of neo-arena rock to new fans young and old. They've also backed up John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and Andrew WK, and even wrote and performed Alice Wakeman: A Rock Opera, at the Ars Nova Theater in NYC. In 2010, the band’s video for the song "Event Horizon" was featured as a Top 10 selection on Attack of the Show. The resulting viral onslaught devastated YouTube (it’s still sore) and won admirers from the farthest corners of the globe.

    .357 Lover have released an EP, Your Favorite Hamburger is a Cheeseburger (2008), and a full-length album, Diorama of the Golden Lion (2009). Their latest endeavor, The Purchase of the North Pole, will be released in autumn 2010.

    Alternative Country

    Sasha Dobson grew up in Santa Cruz, CA. Her father Smith Dobson was one of the Bay Area’s most influential and in-demand pianists, her mom a well-known singer and her brother an accomplished drummer.

    By the time she was 12, Sasha was performing with the entire family at the Monterey Jazz Festival. She moved to Brooklyn at 17 and quickly assimilated into the NYC jazz scene, releasing 2005’s The Darkling Thrush, recorded with The Chris Byars Octet, and Modern Romance (2006). The latter, which won praise from TIME Magazine, was produced by Jesse Harris.
