Beat Drun Juel
Best known for their ripping low end and their front woman’s howl, Chicago rock trio Beat Drun Juel layer pop crooning over heavy amplifiers for a sound that’s equal parts catchy, brutal, and raw. Chicago Reader praises the band’s first 7-inch for its “dark, haunting sound” and calls the band’s live show “an even wilder, heavier monster, explosive and unhinged.” Beat Drun Juel (Drun rhymes with run, Juel sounds like jewel) are singer-guitarist Donna Polydoros (Pasty Face), bassist Jesse Giallombardo (The Paver), and drummer Mat Haywood (Velocicopter).
Sad Baxter (Nashville, TN)
Inspired by grungy, heavy, melodic, mostly loud rock music (Nirvana, Veruca Salt, Hole, etc) Deezy stole her mom’s guitar as a teenager in NJ and began her ~*journey*~ of writing angst-filled songs of discontent. Alex played drums in hardcore bands in PA growing up, and the two joined forces when they realized they were both huge idiots. They want to party with you, but in a sad, loud, La Croix/KitKatBar kinda way.
Danielle Sines sings, shouts, plays guitar and synth, and records noises on tape recorders. She likes melodies that remind her of summertime. John Paul plays bass, guitar, saxophone, keys, and sings. Dan Julian plays drums.
