CAPTAIN SQUEEGEE
"The Gods of Music are not dead! They are coming out of retirement for this young group brimming with talent, enthusiasm, and freshness" (French Critic, Jean-Philip Hauuse). With a tremendous seven-member sound, Captain Squeegee leads a legacy to bend the boundaries of music and offer a mind-blowing experience... sonically, visually, & conceptually. Since their mysterious formation in 2003, they allowed fate to arrange their line-up which kept no original members, and assembled the power-house horn section that defines them today. Captain Squeegee has since performed hundreds of shows, dozens of festivals, released three albums, and manifested multiple music videos. Squeegee's instrumentations and orchestrations have been described as "Fantasia music, with lead singer Danny Torgersen making like Mickey in a swirling maelstrom of flying horns, dancing guitars, broken melodies, and mad-prophet vocalizing" (Phoenix New Times)

Even before their internationally acclaimed full length, Nothing vs Everything (2008), the band had been touring across the southwest, surprising audiences with their unique sound and theatrical live shows, where members are constantly switching instruments & interactive graphics are often projected. With a strong fan-base, and no genre, the band was able to share the stage with main acts like Ludo, The Aquabats, The Ginblossoms, Streetlight Manifesto, As Tall As Lions, and The Cherry Poppin' Daddies... further earning them slots at Edgefest, Tempe Music Festival, & Warped Tour. They were even awarded "Best album of 2008" and "Best hope of 2009" by French web-zine, Progressia, which helped spread the music to Europe and Beyond...

Last year the group paired up with the "Lucidity Web-Saga" as actors and musicians, even writing it's theme song, "Your Own Invention", which they recorded in a pyramid. They now draw large crowds at home, where elaborate shows are themed toward political activism, audience psychic-experimentation, the future, and even The G-20 Summit... "but unpredictable and uncalled for are what Captain Squeegee specializes in." (Pop'Stache Rebiew)

In response to the zombie infested waters of the mainstream, Squeegee will continue to offer a new perspective, driving their fans and future fans to open the mind's eye (and ear)... to "See More Clearly".
FAYUCA
Fayuca is a three- peice PUNK ROCK/ REGGAE band from Phoenix, Arizona. The bands style is rooted in REGGAE/ DUB, with SUBLIME and RX BANDITS cited as heavy influences. There is an obvious SPANISH influence in the band's music as well. In 2004, FAYUCA released their debut album, WALK WEST, on local punk rock label LOCK AND KEY RECORDS. By their second release in 2005 (BLACK MARKET) FAYUCA began to build serious momentum through consistent touring; And the release of "THE ASSASSINATION" in 2009 was well worth the wait!

HIDEOUT
HIDEOUT is Manhattan-based songwriter Gabriel Rodriguez, who's also a longtime band member of Cults. His sophomore album, So Many Hoops / So Little Time, is set to release on February 3rd 2017 via Small Plates Records.

It's been two years since the release of Hideout's debut album Rookie, and in that time many things have changed for Rodriguez. Most tragically, the passing of his brother. So Many Hoops / So Little Time deals with grief in different spectrums –– the album ranges both sonically & lyrically from whimsical space-pop to crushing acoustic vulnerability. There isn't a singular concept or message, but the deeper you delve into Hideout's world the more you feel nostalgia and a sense of loss.

Hideout began as a recording project. The majority of Rookie was recorded while on the road with Cults. Rodriguez took advantage of the downtime by tracking songs in hotel rooms or at friends' homes. Fast-forward to the forthcoming So Many Hoops. . . –– mixed by Loren Humphrey (Nice As Fuck, Guards, The Gloomies) at Stockholm Syndrome Sound Studio in Bushwick, NY –– the recording process was far more linear than Rookie. The album evolved predominantly at Rodriguez's apartment while the surrounding turmoil of loss sunk in. Emotionally charged, he turned to the art of songwriting & storytelling to help navigate through the many answerless questions.

Now a fully realized band, Hideout has been performing live with a rotating cast of New York musicians over the past year. It's just the beginning.
