Cars Can Be Blue, from Athens, Ga., play simple, fun, catchy songs that combine bubblegum pop with a satirical, sometimes even naughty sense of humor. Think Dressy Bessy with Sarah Silverman singing, Tullycraft meets Adam Sandler, Beat Happening meets Tenacious D. Now you’re getting the idea. How do they do it? It all comes from the unique chemistry of Nate Mitchell and Becky Brooks. Cars Can Be Blue started during the summer of 2002 after the dissolution of Nate’s cover band and Becky’s improv comedy group. They have shared stages with bands like Mates of State, The Lucksmiths, Jason Anderson/Wolf Colonel and xBxRx, stand-up comedians Eugene Mirman and Bobby Tisdale and even warmed crowds up for the hilarious Found Footage Film Festival.
The Lovely Eggs are a pop duo from Lancaster, UK. They like to play music together and share a drink. Holly likes books and historical things. David doesn't like books or historical things so much. He prefers cine light shows and fixing things that are broken. The music of the Lovely Eggs is mainly influenced by the ecstasy of the modern mind and all its trappings. They site such bands as The Velvet Underground, Daniel Johnston, Red Crayola, Sonic Youth, Scout Niblett, the Brian Jonestown Massacre, he Modern Lovers and the Moldy Peaches as influences.
School Safety Patrol is one of the many musical incarnations of Peter and Julie of the Sawtelles and Poptelles. They play Ramones-inspired punk pop on a fuzzed out electric uke and modified drum kit. Peter and Julie can be seen playing all over the state of CT from farmer's markets to rock shows.
