Frass Green

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).
Stray Fossa - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
Stray Fossa
Drawing on mixed musical inspiration absorbed from parents’ record collections, the Nick and Will Evans got their start organizing regular free concerts with childhood friend Zach Blount in their hometown of Sewanee, Tennessee. Today, after a six-year hiatus, their creative process has reemerged in the face of opposing artistic tastes, yet shared obsession to make more sound than one would expect from a three-piece.

The band's debut EP, "Sleeper Strip" (2018), garnered praise from notable blogs and magazines, such as The Wild Honey Pie, Obscure Sound, and Whurk Magazine. Compared to the likes of Beach House, Real Estate and The War on Drugs, the release yields a “nocturnal vein of rock with strong melodic elements” – a “heart-rending blend of garage rock and dream pop” with “consistently superb vocal deliveries throughout”. Outlets were quick to applaud the songwriting, home recording and self-sufficiency in music production. Stray Fossa's third single, "Commotion," released in September 2018, received positive reviews as a "compelling unconventional" take on shoegaze, and following a successful stretch of shows up the east coast, the band released their fourth single, "Swells," in January 2019.
