The Oasis rings in 2011 with a smattering of New London's breakthrough acts and "great white hopes."
10pm :: NATURAL FATHERS (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Natural-Fathers/279127047106)
Kevin and Josh (best known for their previous band, Brava Spectre) made a splash this year with this heavy blues rock project. Their debut EP is now available and would fit well on an iTunes playlist next to DeStijl-era White Stripes and early Bla...ck Keys - with just a tad more screaming, of course. The full-length will be released before you know it!
11pm :: STRAIGHT TO VHS (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Straight-to-VHS/150249976975)
2010 was a good year for these guys. The debut EP by this garage rock powerhouse won the prestigious Whalie Award for Record of the Year and they were lauded by blogs and magazines including The Big Takeover and CT Indie. 2011 looks even more promising - their debut full-length (due out in the spring) was produced by Jeremy from Pretty & Nice and sounds INCREDIBLE! A tour and major publicity is in the works for what could easily be one of Connecticut's best records of the promising new year.
12pm :: THE FEARS (http://www.facebook.com/thefearsmusic)
As the ball drops welcoming 2011, The Fears (now officially a two-piece live) will perform their brand new single "Gram by Gram." The band has an extremely promising year ahead of them - their debut EP (worked on by the guys who just produced records for Vampire Weekend and Kings of Leon) will be released winter/spring 2011, tour plans and major blog hype appear almost certain for the near future.
1pm :: THE SWAGGER JACKERS (http://www.internetkilledthepopstar.com/)
The Briggs brothers have been hard at work making new mixtape after new mixtape, culminating with one of their best works to date, The Last Starfighter. Justin will be spinning tunes from this and other various mixtapes till 3am! (Yes, we are open til 3am!) And, stay alert, cause you may just hear some of their remixes for local artists, including Matt Gouette, The Fears, Chumzilla and others!
"Lets party till the new year, set your resolutions and break them in the same night! Why? Cause being bad feels good."
