From the show's Facebook event:
Aficionado released their eponymous debut LP on No Sleep Records in July 2011. The album was recorded in March/April of 2011 with AJ Mogis at ARC Studios in Omaha, NE.
Drawing influence from an array of bands ranging from At the Drive-In, to Cursive, to the Hold Steady, Aficionado has a developed a unique style they are happy to call their own. With roots in punk rock, the band mixes organ, flute, and occasional horn arrangements into it’s unorthodox blend of indie-punk/post-hardcore.

Reservoir is a band from central Pennsylvania drawing influence from bands like Mineral, The Appleseed Cast, and American Football.
Heavy Breath is the sound of five (or six) friends making music together. Since early 2010, Heavy Breath has discarded formula and tradition in favor of making up the rules as they go along, creating a sound that has drawn comparisons to 108, Refused, Converge and others. They also like long walks on the beach and cuddling. And in the summer of 2012, they'll be touring the midwest with Reservoir and working on a new record.
