Brooklyn, NY indie/folk quartet Swear and Shake have only been a group since 2010, but when something great makes an entrance onto the music scene, it cannot, and does not, stay a secret for very long. Currently on the road opening for G.

Interview with Jeff Hershey from JEFF HERSHEY and THE HEARTBEATS; New covers EP and European Tour forthcoming! @jeffheartbeats #nomotiv


Jeff Hershey has worn many hats during his musical tenure. Some of you may know him from his metal days in Black Opal or Hybrid Moments. Others may recognize him as a core member of the wildly popular Vagrant Record’s act, No Motiv.

Check out the new video, “FAMOUS,” from Brazil’s BLACK DRAWING CHALKS! @sxsw #brazil #rockandroll

Interview with Matt King from THE LIGHTS OUT; Heading to @SXSW for Berkelee Showcase in March!


Boston, Massachusetts’ The Lights Out are a 4-piece pop-rock beer-drinkin’ mayhem machine. When your description includes lines like “stickier than the High Life coating their sneakers by the end of every practice,” you can only expect a ruckus, and that’s why I started going to shows in the first place (though acquiring beer during an MC Hammer show at 12 just wasn’t happening.)
