Kids Luv Cops

Porchfest Sub Genre: 
Band Description: 

Kids Luv Cops - Emotionally charged folk-punk about the road to self improvement. We bring the kazoos and maracas, you bring the flair.

Lonesome Joan - Open-tuned post-folk sadcore. Come for delicate songs about triumphant isolation, stay for personal mythologies of springtime crush hell and trivia about trees.

Pizzafish - A spin-off of I'm Doing Okay. How Are You? where the songs are supposed to be about joy but end up actually being about resilience. Now with 100% more whammy bar.

Suburban Adventure - Fenn from The Baja Blasters playing sad songs for burrito lovers. Music for huge fans of both the mall and 2004.

Dalia & The Big Violin

Band Description: 

A musical analogy for baby tigers befriending orangutans, DBV unites a Palestinian-Californian singer (D), and a Minnesotan singing cellist (BV). The pair met at Berklee College of Music around 2016, and together explore styles ranging from folk to motown. The name of the duo was conceived by a 4-year-old audience member in the summer of 2017 on a Boston Harbor Island when he exclaimed, "Mommy, that's a big violin!". Shout out to you, little buddy, wherever you are. Things they both like include: - sad songs - dad jokes - making fun of heteronormativity -writing angry emails
