Hoist the Colors:
Hoist the Colors is a critically acclaimed Los Angeles-based band that plays a blend of punk rock, traditional Irish music, and American folk and bluegrass. Like the cultural fabric of their city, their music is an eclectic mix, the product of different traditions coming together to create something totally original.
A year after their self-released debut album, the band headed back to the studio for their second effort, teaming up with label Hardline Entertainment for 2012’s Miles To Go Before We Sleep. Inspired by their dedication to their craft, the title is a statement about the band’s commitment to pushing their music forward, and the limitless possibilities of the road ahead. Songs like “Gordie Lachance,” “Dance Through the Days,” and “Gold,” speak to the album’s theme of dedicating oneself to a life less ordinary.
The band’s commitment to their music has begun to pay off, resulting in sold out shows in their hometown and recognition across the U.S. - including a feature in Alternative Press magazine’s “100 Bands You Need to Know” issue earlier this year. The band also recently headlined a successful West Coast tour and is fresh off a sold out performance at the Troubadour with Old Man Markley and Joey Cape.
For fans of The Pogues, Flogging Molly, Mumford and Sons, and Bad Religion.
The Goodfells is a Beatles tribute band from Montgomery County, Maryland. Though they have only been together for several years, this group has impressed audiences throughout the DC Metro area. The band members were originally unsure as to which direction to go with their music, but their collective love for the Beatles led them to form a tribute band. That passion is the same force that drives their authentic performances and growing success.
