The Bottom Dollars
The Bottom Dollars
“The Bottom Dollars channel The Clash’s energy with an Americana twist.” – Popdose

“It’s having a flask tucked, at all times, inside the pocket of any coat that’s ever been worn. It’s keeping that flask healthily full with something that coats.” - Sean Moeller, Daytrotter

Yeah, that’s pretty close…

The Bottom Dollars were formed in the basement studios of Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn, NY in the spring of 2010 as a “punk soul project” by co-founders Brian “Cherch” Cherchiglia (vocals, guitar) and Evan “Buffalo” Berg (drums).

After bursting onto the scene with their breakthrough EP, The Halcyon Days, in 2011: The Bottom Dollars made it their mission to become one of the most captivating bands in American rock and roll; winning over audiences and gaining accolades in NPR: All Things Considered, Daytrotter, Village Voice, Relix Magazine. No matter the publication, they were all in unanimous consent of The Bottom Dollars’ explosive and notoriously unpredictable live performances. And, with good reason; this loud, bizarre amalgamate of psychedelic rock, bowery-style punk and soul is something you can only get from the Dollars, only their way.

Now (as a follow-up to their 2014 LP, Meet Me In Cognito) the Dollars return with a new collection of recordings entitled Welcome To The Neighborhood: a politically-charged concept album produced by Ayad Al-Adhamy (Passion Pit, Team Spirit) set for release in 2016.

“Semi-professional sonic assassins.” — CMJ

“This is a rock and roll band whose reverence for classics like The Clash and The Band made their concert an appealing fusion of garage and punk tropes playing off whiskey drenched southern rock licks.” — Pancakes & Whiskey

“A ‘can’t miss live act!’” — No Pulp Music

The Nuclears
The Nuclears
Fast cars, loud guitars, whiskey, beer, video games, leather jackets, boredom, and good-old-fashioned rock shows. The Nuclears are your American dream of rock n' roll, with the raw power of five loaded guns and the smarts to use them for good.

The Nuclears' modern garage rock sound, with a throwback twist that channels Thin Lizzy, The MC5, The Sweet, Kiss, The Ramones, Devo, The Velvet Underground, and Alice Cooper all at once, has packed shows all over New York City, and has landed them on bills with acts such as Walter Lure, The Sights, and Andy Rourke. Known for their unmatched intense high-energy live shows, The Nuclears can tear any venue apart and build it back up with guitar solos and sing-a-long choruses (enter: smoking instruments, swinging long hair, and shirtless, in-your-face lead singer).

The Nuclears recently dropped the first single/b-side combo of a new release cycle, "Myrtle Ave At 4:00am"/"Don't Like It, Don't Get It, Don't Care", a follow-up to their April 2011 debut self-titled album.

"Gutter rock numbers that does The Dictators confident, bad-ass, braggadocios bunch." - Broken Beard

"They live together, have their own weekly podcast, throw dangerously over-crowded basement parties, and maintain a 24-hour-a-day classic rock video channel. True believers or lunatics? A bit of both, really." - Classic Rock Magazine
The Hollows
The Hollows
The Hollows’ new album, Between the Water and the Wonder Wheel, was produced by John Siket (Phish, Sonic Youth, Dave Matthews Band), released this past June, and has received airplay on over one hundred radio stations across the country. The music video for the album’s first single, “Mountains to the Sea,” was recently featured on, and the record has garnered additional attention from Daytrotter, No Depression, Popdust, Glide Magazine, and more. Previous discography includes their debut album Belong to the Land (2011), a self-titled EP (2012), and a live album, Neverending Show (2013). Their music has been featured in Time Out New York (Critic’s Pick), The Wild Honey Pie (Best of SXSW), The Deli Magazine (Artist of The Month), Oh My Rockness (Best of This Week’s Shows), Pancakes & Whiskey, My Old Kentucky Blog, Baeble Music, The Huffington Post, and three feature films. The band has become known for their rip-roaring live shows, and recently completed a two-month national tour.

When you first see this scruffy ensemble of multi-instrumentalists take the stage, you will find them out of place. They will appear to be a ragtag set of traveling performers, accustomed to closing out barn dances and just as likely to steal your prize-winning cow as to wake up next to your sister in a hayloft. It will seem to you that they woke up, one confused morning, to find themselves instead on a Brooklyn street corner. But when the first notes reach your ears, it will seem to you that the sound of The Hollows is uniquely New York: a contradictory, harmonic melting pot that takes all of its roots, twists them around, and produces something else, something new. With no frontman (or six frontmen), the result is a veritable junkyard of instruments and musical personalities, a carnival on wheels, a one-man band in six bodies that owns the stage with all the mobile, rhythmic ease of a seasoned railroad gang.
