Doors Open: 8:00 - Show Starts: 8:45
Grown Up Avenger Stuff is a Charlotte, NC rock band signed to powerhouse indie label Spectra Records. Influenced by The Beatles to The Police to the Foo Fighters the the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and everything in between and around, the band has the kind of powerful emotional music that can only occur between members related to each other by blood. Winner of the best female vocalist in 2010 by Creative Loafing magazine, singer Deirdre Kroener brings both soft pretty and power vocal performance to drive the bands unique sound: loosely based on the standard garage power trio style with a sprinkle of punk, a touch of glam, a slice of metal, a bucket of energy, often building into a tower of volume. A proven favorite around Charlotte, the band has built a following on a solid history of heavily entertaining live performance.
"The band’s electric sound hits you hard and up front without any of the flash … Singer Deirdre Kroener has some of the best rock vocals in town … their fan base will build quickly.”
- Jeff Hahne – Music Editor, Creative Loafing
“Grown Up Avenger Stuff’s a definite “who to see” on the upcoming Charlotte band listings.”
"Angular rhythms, unpredictable art-rock leaning arrangements that don't sacrifice catchiness, heavy riffs, subtle dynamics, and a demonstrative female vocalist who sometimes dons a superhero costume and whose voice swells from demure and kittenish to a commanding wail, as if Jello Biafra and PJ Harvey raised a daughter on riot grrrl."
- Courtney Devores, Charlotte Observer
"Grown Up Avenger Stuff is a perfect example of this great new music – they have a unique sound and approach and they have been building quite a buzz there in their home market of Charlotte, NC. They have an exciting potential and we are going to help them spread their music on a much larger scale.”
- Bobby Collins - President, Spectra Records.

CUSSES is a three?piece rock band that is releasing its debut LP on HA! Records in January 2012. The band hails from Savannah, Georgia and delivers a blend of raw, forceful and energetic rock music and performance. With a new lease on the vast world of music, the trio is out to put a burn on the endless music community.
TBI: What can we expect from Cusses in 2012? You all have less than a year to prove yourselves to the world…
CUSSES: If we only had a year, we would start by blowing up some buildings. Realistically, you can expect a great debut album, and a lot more of where that came from on album #2. You can expect CUSSES to perform with great bands, hopefully some festivals, and maybe a line of CUSSES action figures.

(ALBUM REVIEW : Sequoyah-Spells 2011 | By David Stringer |SC SCENE)
It seems as if Sequoyah has finally come into their own as a band. Spells is the album that they have been waiting to make for the better part of the last decade.
After all the hype and the touring from the “make or break” album which was Ghost Town, where do you go? You get your friend Ryan Zimmerman who only has an upside to his recording/producing career, you trash those
