Worriers / Thin Lips / Lawnmower / Mover Shaker
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, Rachel Rubino, Audrey Zee Whitesides, John McLean, Lou Hanman, and Nick Psillas, among others. They have released records with Don Giovanni, No Idea and Yo-Yo Records and toured with Beach Slang, Against Me!, The Falcon, Smith Street Band, 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.
Thin Lips, huh? A rock/roll type indie band who place a whole lot of value on humility, kindness, and erudite riffage. Following their fledgling EP, Divorce Year, with the release of their first full-length record, Riff Hard (Kyle Pulley/ the Headroom, May 2016), Chrissy Tashjian steers Thin Lips down the middle lane of pop sensibility, while simultaneously testing the boundaries of some pretty wild licks, bud; backed by rhythm keepers Michael Tashjian (drums and Chrissy’s younger brother), and Kyle Pulley (bass/audio engineer), and auxiliary guitar player, Christopher M. Diehm. 2017 finds the band looking ahead to a European tour and split record release with friends, Modern Baseball and the Superweaks, as well as pre-production for a forthcoming full-length record.
Lawnmower: “I’ve got an electric guitar and half a bottle of warm beer / I got some funny ideas about what sounds good”
Mover Shaker: Technicolor gloom rock for the badd kids on the block.
