Dr. Dog
Dr. Dog
Long known for their must-see live shows, Dr. Dog have lately been rather quiet on the touring side of things. Asked if they were getting a little weary of being on the road, front man Toby Leaman laughs, “I’ve never been busier in my life; I can’t wait till we’re out on tour and just playing shows."

After releasing a live album at the top of 2015, Dr. Dog immediately began an intense collaboration with The Pig Iron Theatre Company, setting out to present their legendary (though still unreleased) 1999 album, The Psychedelic Swamp, in theatrical form. With a cast of 30 and an oversized production budget, the performances amazed both rock fans and theater-goers alike, the Philadelphia Inquirer’s pop critic called it “Ingenious” and “Full of heart and soul.” The band is currently in the studio where they will remain for the rest of the year before spending the first half of 2016 on the road.
Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts
Born and raised New Yorker Jeffrey Lewis leads a double-life, as both a comic book artist and an indie-rock musician. Beginning with homemade cassettes in the late 90s, and moving on to touring the world and releasing "proper" albums since 2001, Jeffrey's now 15-year career has included sharing bills and tours with the likes of The Vaselines, The Fall, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Roky Erickson, The Mountain Goats, Daniel Johnston, Devo, Pulp and many other luminaries. In between his contemplative folk narratives and bashed-out indie-punk songs Jeffrey is known for often including a couple of his illustrated songs in each concert (what he calls "low budget videos") sometimes covering historical topics (like "The History of Communism"), biographies (like "The Life of Barack Obama") or strange flights of fancy (like "The Creeping Brain"). Appearing in the past as Jeffrey Lewis & The Jitters (featuring his brother Jack and David Beauchamp), Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard and other touring ensembles, his newest band incarnation is Jeffrey Lewis & The Jrams (pronounced "drams") featuring Mem Pahl on bass and Heather Wagner on drums.

Rough Trade Records (label of The Smiths, The Strokes, etc.) has released six Jeffrey Lewis albums to date; Jeffrey has self-published eleven issues of his comic book series Fuff, and Jeffrey's writing, illustrations, comic books and music have been featured by The Guardian, The History Channel and The New York Times (among other places).
