Andrew WK

Andrew W.K. burst onto the scene with a hybrid of metal, pop, and dance that parodied and paid tribute to the cheesiest, sleaziest aspects of all three styles. The California-born, Michigan-bred W.K. — the initials stand for everything from “White Killer” to “Women Kum” to “Wilkes-Krier,” the surnames of his mom and dad — began classical piano lessons at age four and moved on to playing in Detroit punk and metal bands, including the Pterodactyls. The buzz around W.K. has resulted in a gig opening for the Foo Fighters as well as deals with Island/Def Jam in the U.S. and Mercury in the U.K.




Ohio’s McCafferty began as most good earworms should: melodies looped into and blended with pop-rock backbeats, a knack for urgent relatability, and a dedication to capturing a universal feeling. The duo quickly amassed an Internet following obsessed with documenting every move the band made across their early material. The chase became harder to continue when the band dissolved as quickly and feverishly as they formed – until the Web gave the band, now college graduates, reason to fine-tune their formula.

The result, originally backed by a GoFundMe campaign that reached its goal seven times, is Thanks. Sorry. Sure. The roots of the two-piece remain intact, sampling voicemails, friends’ drunken shouts, and even the 2000s Britpop band Keane to create a familiar, comfortable baseline. But, the caffeine shot through McCafferty’s first run gets replaced by a darker vice for their second wind, shocking the arrangements – now the work of a four-piece – with a forced inward gaze. Hopefully, there’s no more breaks in the action, just more to rally around.




Sweepyheads is a three-piece Cleveland rock band with garage and punk influences. Their music celebrates the power behind raw emotion filtered through guitars, drums, bass, screaming, and singing. Live performances prove to be the best medium for experiencing the band. Sweepyheads’ band members are Andrew Yadon, Louis Haas, and Patrick Grieve.



The Venus Flytraps

Cleveland’s Evil Ones THE VENUS FLYTRAPS are not a Rock band: They are not Indie, Garage or Grindie. They are a new ROCK AND ROLL band from the Midwestern Jungle concocting tight hook-laden anthems designed with the fiendish in mind. Formed in the Summer of 2016 and consisting of Red “Vondrella” Hood (vocals), Kelly Venus (guitar and vocals), Aubrey O’Blivian (bass guitar) and Michael Hood (drums), they spent the better part of that year crafting music a world away from the calculated angst of radio rock but close to the hearts of the kids who came to see them. At first they were curious. Then, they were addicted. You can find their music on Bandcamp and catch their debut music video “Clamp Down!” on Youtube.
