Sweet Apple, the rock ‘n’ roll band featuring J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr., Heavy Blanket), Tim Parnin (Cobra Verde, Falling Stars, Chuck Mosley), John Petkovic (Cobra Verde, Death of Samantha, Guided By Voices) and Dave Sweetapple (Witch) has released three acclaimed albums since forming in 2010.
The group has been lauded by Rolling Stone, Esquire, USA Today, NPR, Salon and Mojo, which called it a “Venn diagram of melodic power-pop” in a four-star review. Spin called Sweet Apple “one stomp box in the power pop of their youth, one in the heavy indie thud they invented.”
The band, which spans three states (Ohio, Massachusetts and Vermont), rolls out insurgent guitars, glitter-stomp, orchestrated pop. Albums have included guest appearances from Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age), Robert Pollard (Guided by Voices), Rachel Haden (Haden Triplets) and Doug Gillard (Guided by Voices, Nada Surf).
King Buu is a Cleveland, Ohio based rock band formed in 2016. The band’s fast paced, lively performances viciously mix the familiar rock & roll elements of yesteryear with a frenzied array of whatever else the group fancies in that moment. With influences including science fiction, bad television and the wild west; the audience can expect noisy garage rock tunes to turn on a dime into doo-wop, psychedelia or bubblegum pop at any moment!
