These Weak Lips:
"These Weak Lips brings together bassist TJ Richardson, drummer Jake
Buchanan, and guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Tyler Billman for heady
experimental jams, punk, rock, and metal beats, and head-smashing hip-hop
grooves pulled out of Schrodinger's box (and left in it at the same time).
Having met at UNC in the Jazz department, these three musicians all
specialize in different genres, giving These Weak Lips an eclectic,
progressive sound, and their audiences an exciting experience off the
beaten musical path."

The Big Strong Arms:
"To their friends, they've been known by many names: Underground Funk
Bunker, Trainsaw, Dogmouth, Shut Up Dogmouth, They Might Be Clients... But to the world, they've always been The Big Strong Arms. Their unique brand
of sometimes rambunctious, sometimes heartfelt jazz-rock is informed by an enormous list of artists, including Frank Zappa, The Who, Elbow, Yoko
Kanno, and many, many others. That sprawling collection of influences gives them a sound that whips from dulcet to destructive, from introspective to
insane. Long story short, The Big Strong Arms must be seen to be believed."

Secretary Pool started as two guys talking over beers at
Slim's. They hatched a plan to form a band to pay tribute to the alt/indie
heyday of groups like Weezer, The Strokes, and Guided By Voices. Chad Pry
had a bunch of songs primed and ready to go, and enlisted the backup of
Joey Z, the loudest drummer in all of Durham County. Brendon Bass signed up for guitar, despite his surname. A few months later, Kyle Hanschke picked
up a bass and realized he was a indeed a 4-string virtuoso, and joined the
crew. They started playing out in early 2017, and have performed steadily
since, despite the fact that Kyle "just doesn't get" Tom Petty. Don't
worry, they all like CCR."
