Some people say things like "go big or go home" or "the bigger the better" (right?) and that appears to be the attitude of Austin, TX's SWEET SPIRIT, a nine-piece country-rock band featuring some of their hometown's finest young musicians, including members of A GIANT DOG and BOBBY JEALOUSY. We last saw this crew when they played a Glitter Creeps night two years ago, and we're stoked to have them back headlining our stage! SWEET SPIRT's debut album, Cokomo, was released in 2015 via Nine Mile Records. Delivered in sultry harmonies with as many guitars, horns and keys as you could possibly want, the throwback country soul group is also known for giving one helluva live show, too, so let them take you down, baby. Way down. The Brooklynites in BOYTOY are bringing their incredibly energetic presence to our incredibly electric stage, and, oh boy, our butts are ready for an ass-kicking. These garage-pop freaks have taken a more lush approach this time around, leaning towards a more early ’90s alt-pop-gaze style, but we're way into it. The band members have fantastic chemistry, a sarcastically absurd point of view, and enticing charisma, so don’t come here with some lame ass mood, ya hear? Chicago's BEASTII is the unhinged monster brain-child of guitarist Jen Dot (Swimsuit Addition) featuring Chris Lee (Soddy Daisy) and Dom (Dom's Rock Fantasy). This trio will get down to the deepest caverns of your eardrums, so bring a headlamp if you wanna see your insides, y'all - safety first.
