Donna Missal – Missal is an emerging talent from NJ known for tracks “The Keeper” and “Sick.” She is starting off RF first thing on Friday.
White LungWe’ve been listening to White Lung’s Paradise and feel the raw energy of this punk release. They are playing Friday afternoon.


Sleater Kinney – They sold out their return tour last year barely after it was announced. They are the most storied women’s act on the tour. Last year they released No Cities to Love, their first new album in a decade. Sleater Kinney was one of a myriad of Grrl Rock bands in the 90’s. Now they are back.
Judith Hill – Judith Hill is known as being backing vocals for Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder. In 20 Feet from Stardom she was already showing her chops moving to the headline position. She released Back In Time last year. Her debut album was produced by Prince.
Diet Cig – Alex and Noah are back. We last saw them in the early Spring touring. Diet Cig is a scrappy pop punk band whose attitude is as important as the music. Watch Alex bounce around the stage like a living pogo stick. They are infectious and a little crazy.


Sleigh BellsJessica Rabbit, their new album is coming in November. Sleigh Bells is a wall of Marshall amps and raw power. Derek Miller & Alexis Krauss are the heavy version of the White Stripes. They can strip paint off metal with their music. Earplugs are required to listen at home. In person be aware of earthquakes.
Juliette Lewis & The Licks – People often forget that Juliette Lewis is more than an actress. She has been performing with The Licks for years. She released an new album Terra Igcognita a couple of months ago along with the new track “Hello Hero.”
Bleached –  We saw this LA 3 piece after a long weekend of music in March. We’d already seen Sunflower Beam, Yuck and others that weekend. Bleached came in and showed what music is about. They are a pop punk band that is more straight rock than anything else. They released Welcome to the Worms in April.
Jessica Hernandez and the Deltas – This Detroit band is a soul band with a lot of brass. Their rhythm section stands out. Hernandez is physically small but makes up for it with a voice that wraps around you like a snake and squeezes. They released the Demon EP before releasing Secret Evil.
