On a night of drunk karaoke at Tudor Lounge, long time friends Ben (Parsons, lead singer) and Tom (Burtless, guitarist) decided they should start a Strokes cover band.  A few weeks into the summer of 2017 Ben and Tom had finalized their lineup including members of various local bands (Ryan Schilia of The Slums, Griffin Smith of Feverbox and John Grace of Girl Jeans).  By end of that same year they had played several packed shows to people screaming every word to 'Last Night,  'Reptilia' and so on.  They exude the spirit of the pioneering 2001 indie rockers with each show while performing songs from the entire Strokes discography.

Buffalo, NY's Cooler combines a love for 90s guitar-rock with the heart-on-your-sleeve aesthetic of early 2000s emo. The trio's contemporary, pop-minded approach to emotive songwriting could also find them sitting comfortably next to MTV2's iconic 2002 rotation... Think somewhere between Weezer and Saves the Day or Bully and Pity Sex. Their most recent release is the five-song 'Buried' EP, out now via Admirable Traits records.

FEVERBOX started officially in the last few hours of 2015 with the release of a living room demo and a New Year’s Eve show at Buffalo’s Gypsy Parlour, a tarot-themed dive. The band consists of Griffin Smith (Guitar/Vocals), Nico Kelly (Bass/Vocals) and Josh Little (Drums/Vocals). These longtime friends and roommates bought a DI box and made some home recordings. One year and a handful of songs later they becameFEVERBOX. After a year of honing in their live performance and tirelessly growing their production skills FEVERBOX released their first EP, self-titled. The six songs are a development of the style they’ve been owning since they were kids: up-beat alternative rock with a heavy dose of British invasion and post-punk revival influences. Simply put it's "INDIE ROCK IN A SAUNA"
