Border Patrol is a lyrically driven folk-rock group from Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Ontario. Blending elements of traditional bluegrass and folk with punk and indie expression, they feature vocal harmonies and surprisingly upbeat melodies about our impending doom and the monotonies of every day life and love in this modern age.

Jake Simmons, one of two songwriting talents behind the excellent (but now defunct) Dead Scene Radio, is back. With a hand picked supporting cast and unapologetic swagger, Jake is taking his blend of punk, rock, country, pop and folk out of a southwest Michigan garage and onto your turntable. With the Little Ghosts (essentially a complete motown-era rhythm machine) in lockstep, Jake’s live show swings wildly from soulful acoustic ballads, to catchy doo-wop, to cascading sheets of caterwauling feedback. Always brash, always honest, usually with a middle fucking finger to convention, Jake is a true archetypical midwestern singer-songwriter who laces up his steel-toed work boots each day without a hint of irony.

We are The Sugar Bombs! Dirty Crunch PoP! Jason Huffmaster slaying the 6 string and vocals. Dave Leslie keeping it real on the guitar and vocals. Drums by whoever the hell is available. Bass? Who needs it?

Fangs and Twang: This trio sings twangy songs of vampires, mummies, and other mystical creatures. X-Carnies, Current Cryptids, Future Feature Creatures…
