This event is all ages
Formed in 2014 by Mariel Beaumont, Church Girls is on a quest to tap into listeners’ emotional marrow by lyrically confessing a resistance to growing up, espousing a tendency towards self-destruction, showing the pains of communication, and celebrating the ways we work to become better humans a little at a time.
Their 2018 EP Home was released Sept 7 via Chatterbot Records, and was featured in Bandcamp’s New & Notable: "Sparkling indie rock that surrounds lithe vocal melodies with wreaths of guitar." The group toured extensively throughout the US & UK to support the record. Their forthcoming EP Cycles is out Jan 25th.
Informed in equal parts by the energy of early garage rock and the wistfulness of the Brill Building sound, Frass Green makes nasal pop from the heart of Washington, D.C. The band began as the solo lo-fi project of Joe Antoshak, who released several collections of songs in 2017. They generated a small amount of interest online, which led him to build out a full band. Frass Green is now Antoshak (rhythm guitar, vocals), Tyler Rippel (bass, keys, vocals), Antonio Peluso (drums) and Matt Lachance (lead guitar, violin, vocals).
Once the solo output of DC native, Peter Hartmann, Poppy Patica is now joined by Nikhil Rao (Bottled Up) and Chloe Menderson (Little Butcher) to create a full band incarnation of this rocky pop project, with elements of punk and psychedelia.
