Brendan Kelly (The Lawrence Arms)
Brendan Kelly has been voted “Best Twitter” by Chicago Reader, was a TV Host, is the guy behind Nihilist Arby’s, sings in The Lawrence Arms, works at The Onion, makes weird art… the list goes on. Now after a couple years crafting deviant songs he has something new for his cult to consume: a 10-song album called Keep Walkin’ Pal. He releases his “solo” material under the name Brendan Kelly and the Wandering Birds, but this is not some emo boy with a guitar or another “punk goes acoustic” outing, this is an artist collective like Wu-Tang Clan or Crass. It involves musicians, visual artists, studio nerds, and even a college film professor. We’re not sure how to describe this wild record (Space Rock? Chiptune?), but we know it’s a likable mix and a real departure from what you’re used to hearing from Brendan and this scene.

Worriers are a melodic punk band from Brooklyn, New York. The band’s music is centered around the songwriting of Lauren Denitzio, with the help of friends Mikey Erg, Lou Hanman, John McLean and Nick Psillas, among others. They released their second LP “Survival Pop” with SideOneDummy Records in 2017 and have previously released records with Don Giovanni, No Idea and Yo-Yo Records. Worriers has toured with Against Me!, John K Samson & The Winter Wheat, Julien Baker, The Wonder Years, Camp Cope, and more. Described as “a masterfully crafted punk record” by the Village Voice, Worriers’ first full-length “Imaginary Life” was produced by Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! and was released on Don Giovanni Records in 2015.
