Powerman 5000
Powerman 5000
The original incarnation of POWERMAN 5000 took shape in Boston Massachusetts, where the group racked up a multitude of local gigs and produced two independent CD releases, 1994's True Force and 95's The Blood Splat Rating System. An unrivaled work ethic and growing legion of fans helped secure the band's dominance in the Boston rock scene, as well as creating a must-have commodity for many major labels.

1997 was a big year for Spider and company; it saw them sign with DreamWorks Records, relocate to Los Angeles and release their major label debut, Mega!! Kung Fu Radio. A year of touring with the likes of Marilyn Manson, Korn and Ozzfest followed, giving them national exposure and further strengthening the bands fan base. Their follow up, 1999's Tonight The Stars Revolt!, featuring the hits "When Worlds Collide" and "Nobody's Real" went on to sell more than a million copies . "Tonight The Stars Revolt! changed everything." Spider recalls. "Suddenly we went from being this weird little underground band to having our faces on MTV and our songs played nationwide."

On April 7, 2009, Powerman 5000 released a blog on their MySpace page stating that Anyone For Doomsday? has officially been re-released. The legal battle ended and the album was released under the SKG Music License. The album is available on iTunes as a digital download. On April 21st, the band released "V is for Vampire", the second single from their upcoming album, which is planned for a summer release.

Imagine the magic moment your parents fucked and nine months later you popped out. This is nothing like that.
Scary Cherry & the Bang Bangs
Scary Cherry & the Bang Bangs
The glitter punk love child of Alice Cooper & Joan Jett.

How does one describe the three-headed party monster that is Scary Cherry and the Bang Bangs? With sonic and artistic nods to 70's glitter rock coupled with a snotty punk rawness, Scary Cherry's debut LP GIRL is an assured, addled, four-on-the-floor joyride. Scary Cherry combines riot grrrl ethos with the pop smarts of The Runaways for a sound that salutes the past while paving its own hard rock path. From the spoken word album opener of Scary in the recording studio, GIRL is a raw, sometimes disturbing, but ultimately empowering journey through the eyes and life of a girl. The album is a glitter roller coaster, twisting and turning, coursing through a gamut of emotions with no exit until the last disturbing notes of a creepy piano and strings fade away.

While it may sound like the band hails from the gutters of NYC, Scary Cherry and the Bang Bangs actually come from the most unlikely of homes: Dallas, TX. Born out of roller derby in the Lone Star State, team captain and coach for the (then undefeated) Slaughterers, Scary Cherry was asked to write a theme song for the league. Scary recruited like-minded friends and an unstoppable machine was created. 6 years, a few hundred shows and one EP later (the bratty titled Limited Edition 5 Song EP), Scary Cherry and the Bang Bangs have garnered a loyal and ever growing fan base who refer to themselves and the band as Glitter Punks (a moniker the band wears with pride).

Whether they are opening up for Misfits, Megadeth, Slash or Lords of Acid, the band has no demographic boundaries. Having already had 4 original singles played in major market radio, and music featured in film, Scary Cherry and the Bang Bangs and their debutante GIRL are ready to come out in a big way. So who exactly is this GIRL the album speaks of? "She is all of us!" explains Scary Cherry. "From the self-absorbed bitch in "Glitter" to the severely deranged in "Tracked Down" (a love letter from a female serial killer). She is the GIRL that you have averted your gaze from ("Crazy Jane") as well as the GIRL you cannot take your eyes off of ("Anita 69")."

GIRL is a simultaneously hyperkinetic, dangerous, sexy beast, and ultimately, the essence of Scary Cherry and the Bang Bangs.

Mammothor
Mammothor
Mammothor is an American hard rock band from Boston, Massachusetts that formed in 2012. The band’s current lineup consists of singer Travis Lowell, guitarists Josh Johnson and Dana Sharpton, bassist Lori Gangi, and drummer Nick Raby. Travis Lowell fronts the group with powerful and versatile vocals. Guitarist Josh Johnson is a Berklee Graduate and former student of guitar shred legend Joe Stump. Guitarist Dana Sharpton has studied with virtuoso guitarist Greg Howe. The dynamic and steady drum and bass section of Nick Raby and Lori Gangi fill out the band’s eclectic sound. Mammothor strives to deliver the essence of rock: the thunderous heavy metal riffs and guitar shred of the 80’s, rounded out with the passion and versatility of 90’s alternative. Mammothor has shared the stage with artists: Living Colour, Ted Nugent, Sponge, Powerman 5000, Orgy, Eve 6, Prong, Fuel, Saving Abel, and Hinder.
Mammothor is a cohesive blend of heavy metal to classic rock often mixing in elements of blues and fusion. Their style, though at times can be experimental or progressive, maintains a mainstream appeal with shorter alternative rock songs and ballads. Mammothor’s debut album “Tyrannicide’ (2014) captured the bands blues guitar savvy with an alternative rock sensibility. With the lineup changes at singer and rhythm section Mammothor has reached for new technical and sonic boundaries. The band’s follow up album “Devotion Lost” was released on April 28, 2017. Mammothor will be playing gigs in New England and on short tours throughout 2017 into 2018 in support of the album.
