Dark Trilobite is finally reuniting for their first performance since going off to college. The four musicians – Isabella, Evan, Max, and Sammy – grew up in the DMV area and got together through Bach2Rock’s band program. Since leaving B2R, they’ve developed their own sound that has culminated in releases such as “Wishbone” and “Time Waits For No One.” Just recently, they dropped their newest single “Purple Zaremba,” which will soon be followed by “Devil’s Paradise.”

Ham by the Pound is made up of Evan Quigley (Guitar), Matthew Smith (Guitar), Sir Harvey Johnson (Bass), and Will Smith (Drums). The power quartet met in a federal prison in 2016, all facing separate charges of tax fraud. They bonded over their love of music and distaste for the IRS, and started writing music through 2018 and 2019. They released their debut EP, “Heather,” on Valentine’s Day of 2020. The band is currently working on their first studio album, expected in late 2023, with the first two singles “Alice” and “Moonshower” available now.

“Make no mistake: young DC rockers One Way Out can fill a room.”
One Way Out is an dirty shirt rock n’ roll band from Washington D.C., packing venues up and down the east coast, touring with Soraia of Steven Van Zandt’s Wicked Cool Records, and being nominated for Best Hard Rock artist in D.C. alongside names like Clutch before most members even graduated high school. “Not only can they pack a room full of fans but they can play like seasoned champs, filling a space with the sound of rock ‘n’ roll.” In August 2021, the band released and toured in support of their sophomore LP, The Sun, The Moon, The Truth, an eclectic meld of blues-inspired late 60s rock with progressive elements inspired by metal, hard rock, and jazz. On the record, the band also takes on the aggression of punk emanating from the local DC scene and the philosophies of more modern garage acts, such as King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, OSees and Tame Impala.
To use the words of Spill Magazine, “This is, without a doubt, one of the most versatile rock bands around today.”
