…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead will be recording locally, so they're sneaking in a quick one shot show this Friday, April 9. For anyone not familiar, they are an indie rock band best known for their heavy yet anthemic music and their tendency to destroy their equipment at the end of their performances. According to the band’s website, the name “…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead” is taken from both an ancient Mayan ritual chant and an Egyptian burial text. Guess those Mayans knew how to have a good time.

Wess Meets West began in late 2005 and was created by Sam Stauff (The Morning After, My Holy Ghost, A Paper Tugboat). Initially, it was intended solely as an electronic music project supplemented by Sam on guitar. The project stayed this way until February 2008 when Sam recruited bass player Bryan Gottshall and drummer Jesse Vengrove, turning Wess Meets West into a live band. The band fused it's electronic roots with it's newly found live elements, bringing the music to a whole new level and finally allowing the music to be performed in a live setting. For fans of early Appleseed Cast, Explosions in the Sky, Russian Circles, etc.

Wry is a mid tempo indie rock band who started in circa April of 2008. At first it was Nick and Keith with a few other people and things didn't work out. However, things picked up again late 2008, early 2009 when Ryan and Jerry joined and solidified the group.
