Anderson, Seth (Seth Anderson)

Canmore, AB, Canada (Active)

Seth Fandersons Unite!

Seth Anderson has spent his time on earth on a journey; in search of his truth, purpose, and an understanding of the world around him and his place in it. His songwriting offers an honest view of life from a unique perspective that has stemmed from years of travelling, moving from town to town, city to city, highway to highway; the high peaks, the low valleys, and all the spaces in between. Through all of this, there maintains one common thread- a bellow for love and hope. Few artists have such an intense emotional connection to their craft and this is where he shines. His delivery is genuine, yet at times ferocious with both conviction and vulnerability, comparative to artists such as John Moreland, Chuck Ragan, and Frank Turner. Seth’s musical intensity crawls up your backbone making the hairs stand on your neck while adding goose bumps on your skin. His evolution began in a small town punk scene where he grew up in Hartland, New Brunswick. It was then followed by years of a blue-collar approach to his career, putting in thousands of miles while taking his music to audiences all over the world. His highly lauded February, 2020 release, “We Could Be.”, is another impressive step forward for Seth in his exploration of songwriting, musical styles and sounds.

Armchair Martian

Ft. Collins, CO, USA (Occasionally Active)

How do you describe a band that should be a household name? Armchair Martian formed in 1993 in Ft. Collins, CO. In 1995, the band self-released a demo cassette. Shortly after, they would sign with then-powerhouse Cargo Music/Headhunter Records and tour regularly (including stints with Lagwagon). After Cargo ceased label activities, Armchair Martian moved to Joey Cape's My Records (remember the Lagwagon reference earlier?) after the turn of the century. Around this time, Armchair leader Jon Snodgrass would form Drag The River, a soon-to-be torchbearer for alt-country and Americana, along with Armchair drummer Paul Rucker and ALL singer Chad Price. As the 00's turned to the 10's, Jon would establish himself as a standout solo acoustic artist. Armchair and Drag shows occurred occasionally but rarely. The entire Armchair Martian discography went out of print. Most of it still remains unavailable digitally. Then in 2019, Snappy Little Numbers Quality Audio Recordings reissued the Armchair Martian "Demo" on cassette/digital and AM played the Blasting Room 25th Anniversary show. The Armchair demo was one of the earliest recordings done at the Blasting Room. Jon is still goin' solo when there's not a pandemic. Now you're all caught up.

Autogramm

Vancouver, BC, Canada (Active)

The original idea that guitarist Jiffy Marx and bassist C.C.Voltage had for this project was more about starting a band that would tour to sunny destinations than starting a new wave band, but it was their mutual admiration for punk and power pop that brought the two together. Along with drummer The Silo, the three had been connected through the Vancouver music scene, sharing stages, friends and even band members in seminal acts such as Jerk With a Bomb, The Spitfires, Blood Meridian, Lightning Dust, Hard Drugs, Black Halos, Black Rice and Black Mountain.

Continental, Charlie (Charlie Continental)

Denver, CO, USA (Active)

The "Punk Rock Jingle Machine"!

But for reals, his name is Chuck. Well, technically, it's Charles. No one calls him that. He's a Denver, CO-based musician, songwriter, performer, producer, recording engineer, music mogul and tastemaker. At least some of those things are true. Besides this little solo thing, he also plays in SPELLS and Bad Year (plus a couple other projects at any given time). He also writes songs for things like TV shows, podcasts, (cool) companies and anything else that needs a tune. Oh, and he runs this here "label".

Dinged Up

Baltimore County, MD, USA (Active)

Joe Rankin and Dinged Up have been churning out earworms all across Maryland and the East Coast since 2013. Joe had put Dinged Up on hold for a bit a couple years back, but reformed the group in 2019 with a solid lineup. The current crew includes players that have done time or still do time in such heavy hitters such as The Jons, Deep Sleep and Night Birds. That's just a few examples of the serious pedigrees that comprise Dinged Up! (Deek Chooglin)

Don Chicharron

Denver, CO, USA (Active)

Don Chicharrón quiere bailar contigo. Don Chicharrón plays and pays homage to Chicha, the sonic result of Peruvian artists mixing the various aural stylings of their day: ‘60s psychedelia, Andean traditional folk melodies, and Afro-Cuban cumbia rhythms. Formed by Peruvian-American, Aldo Pantoja, Don Chicharrón filters its brand of Chicha through the songwriting influences of its 8 other members, giving its self-titled debut LP touches of punk, surf, prog, jazz, reggaetón, and salsa. Live, Don Cheech invites audiences to get tangled up in a canopy of trippy guitarwork, shuffle to mesmerizing synth-play and shout celebratory chants. Based in Denver, CO, the band and its kind of cumbia is as influenced by the spaghetti western sounds of its Rocky Mountain deserts as it is by the Amazonian jungles and coastal cities that created Chicha. All are welcome to liberate their hips at the Don Cheech discoteca. ¡A BAILAR!

The band's energetic, bratty, poppy punk/ska made them Denver favorites and reached beyond Colorado as well.

Carport Rock!

J. Waylon does it all and does it well. FOCR is the moniker he uses for his garage-rock meets budget-rock with a dash of pop-punk output. That's Carport Rock, baby! He's a one-man band as often as he's a leader of hired guns. J Way's prolific songwriting is only surpassed by his remote detached learning instructor, Robert Pollard. (Deek Chooglin)

Gentlemen Rogues

Austin, TX, USA (Active)

Austin TX-based Gentlemen Rogues celebrate aggressive guitar pop, with punk-inflected energy, polished, precise songwriting, and hooks as sharp and sleek as the Rickenbackers they bang them out on. This is a four-piece for Now People, drawing inspiration from UK visionaries like The Who, The Jam, and Teenage Fanclub, while steadfastly blasting their own course through an American indie rock canon shaped by Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, Jawbreaker, and Superchunk. Collectively, Danny Dunlap (vocals, guitar), John Christoffel (guitar), David Hawkins (bass), and Josh Power (drums) crank out catchy, amplified treble kickers, mixing powder keg intensity, classic melodies, and brash theatrics into a 200-proof distillation of brazen rock ‘n’ roll.
