The Tyler Trudeau Attempt are no strangers to rock and roll stages all over the northeast. Originally a solo home recording project began during Trudeau’s high school years, The Tyler Trudeau Attempt has been a gigging live band for over half a decade. The band includes current and former members of Connecticut bands Apse/ERAAS, The Cavemen Go and Shark. The Attempt has a catchy power-pop sound and lyrics you’ll find yourself singing for days. The band makes musical nods to Elvis Costello, Richard Hell, The Modern Lovers, The Ramones and more.
Dead Wives are a 3-piece self-described “skate rock” band. The band has five demos and one proper EP under their belt. The “Scuz Bucket” EP received local praise earlier this year.
New Haven’s Celebrated Tigers play “enjoyable indie rock.” According to their Facebook page, “In addition to nature and human experience, we also like Neil Young and The Pixies.” Their latest release, the full length, “Year of The Tiger,” resulted in a packed house at The Outer Space and landed them a coveted spot on a Wednesday night show at BAR opening for The Shivers.
