:: PLEXXAGLASS :: 

PLEXXAGLASS is a crisp salad of sounds ranging from alternative pop to indie folk to electronic. Lead by singer-songwriter Alexa Joan Rae, the key to finding the unique sound for PLEXXAGLASS was working with Kevin Billingslea of The Halo Studio in Portland, Maine.

The release of their single 'Lament en Route' (prod. by Kevin Billingslea) received rave feedback from indie bloggers and propelled the project's momentum towards success. Her follow-up, ‘Liar’, is a conversation about mental health. The song chronicles Joan Rae’s own struggles with depression and anxiety; the feeling of needing to put on a mask to function in a demanding society.

Throughout 2016, PLEXXAGLASS has performed in nationally known venues such as The Knitting Factory (Brooklyn), The Mint, Be Here Now, Cake Shop, and The Troubadour. 
The project has recently expanded to a 4 piece: Alexa on Vocals/Keys, Lauren Stockner (Cruel Youth) on Bass, Ken Oak on Cello (Meg Myers band), and Sarah Luffred on Drums. 

PLEXXAGLASS has been featured on IMPOSE Magazine, The Spill (Canada), ‘WorldArts’ as their February ’Spotlight Artist’, Idobi Radio , ‘Indiemono’ Spotify Playlist of over 30K followers, UK Indie Music Blogs ‘Where the Horn Blow’ and ‘A&R Factory', ‘Wolf in a Suit’ Indie Music Blog, Canada’s ‘Ohestee’ Indie Music Blog, and Poland’s ‘Zapetlone’ blog.

PLAG PRESENTS: Rival Cavves, Ruby and the Reckless, and Jasmine Sankaran

PLAG PRESENTS at Harvard & Stone Harvard & Stone Thursday, May 25th 21+ || FREE 9PM :: Rival Cavves ::  "Rival Cavves is a band of two rival neighbors who now make dance music together in the hopes of repairing their damaged companionship" Music by: Matthew Lieberman Vox & Lyrics by: Marissa Longstreet LISTEN ---> https://soundcloud.com/rivalcavves :: Ruby & The Reckless::  Ruby and The Reckless is Ruby Jane, Austin Simmons, Miggy Milla, Chris Copeland and Sam Powell. Fiddle prodigy Ruby Jane has been a fixture on the Austin roots scene since she was eleven years old, playing with everyone from Willie to Lady Gaga along the way. Now twenty-one, Ruby has spent the last two years redefining herself as a songwriter and vocalist, assembling a band of young players whose musicianship matches her own. The result is the new album In My Head, a collection of psyche-tinged, fiddle-driven, hook-laden ear candy produced by Frenchie Smith. This full band effort written entirely with bassist Austin Simmons and arranged by the group(Miggy Milla, guitar & vocals, Sam Powell, keys, Chris Copeland, drums & vocals), veers sharply from roots music toward catchy pop-rock, pushing the sonic envelope with patches, pedals, and live effects that keep the fiddle front and center, but often sounding like anything but a fiddle. As always, Ruby’s musicianship is daring and inventive, and producer Frenchie Smith adds a studio gloss that perfectly fits the dreamy vibe of the new tunes while pushing Ruby’s confident vocals forward in the mix. In My Head marks the arrival of Ruby Jane as a full grown triple threat - a tremendous instrumentalist, compelling vocalist and inventive songwriter. Ruby and the Reckless received the prestigious Black Fret grant in late 2015.Ruby and The Reckless is the brainchild of Ruby Jane, Austin Simmons, Miggy Milla, Chris Copeland and Sam Powell, based out of Austin, Texas . Their unique style has been called "a psych-jamming, darkly optimistic, alt-hooky, fiddlin' mind f**k."

After graduating from Berkeley with a degree in Creative Writing, she realized she had written more songs in college than short stories…From there she developed her sound with punk angst and melancholia at its core surrounded by ambient melodies and heavy textures. Her lyrics often combine the mysticism of her Vietnamese-Indian culture with the heartbreak and reality of growing up.  LISTEN ---> https://www.facebook.com/jsankmusic/ See you soon! xoxo

:: White Sea ::
Kibby has embarked on a solo project since touring with M83, called White Sea, which is a translation of her surname. Her first track, a remix of Solid Gold's "Synchronize", first appeared on her MySpace. A second track titled "Overdrawn" was released to her MySpace in March, revealing a new musical direction for Kibby. On September 30, a new track, "Mountaineer", became available for free download on the RCRD LBL website. An EP, The self-produced In Cold Blood, Kibby's first full-length album, was released in May 2014 via Crush Music and Songs Publishing, and features songs co-written with Greg Kurstin and Mark Ronson. She described it as a break-up record where she "had to express myself through my music. It was the only way to purge myself of this extreme grief and loss". The album was toured as support to The Naked and Famous.

:: Wolf Prize ::
Wolf Prize: Ethereal and emotional soundscapes in outer space.
"This is a trio of extremely talented musicians who know about the past but make music for the eternal present. They play by their own rules: no standard drum kit, no endless choruses, no end to bandleader Tori Roggeman's vocal range, and no need to explain themselves. But don't worry—you'll be more than happy with the way they reflect your own emotions right back at you." - D.M. Collins, LA Record

:: Alyeska :: 
Alyeska, formed by song writer and guitarist Alaska Reid who moved from a small town in Montana. Alyeska is a three piece band. Alaska met drummer Ben Spear, and began to further form a dynamic sound that was still heavy but that left room for Alaska. Just this year the band recorded three songs with producer John Agnello whose credits include Dinosaur Jr, Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth and Phosphorescent-- all artists that inspire the band.

:: Cassandra :: 
Cassandra is a feminist art-rock power-ballad pop group based out of Los Angeles California. We have glitter in our eyes and fervor in our hearts. We sing truth to power and rage against violence and silence. We are always looking for people to join the band. Cassandra is also a concept, a performance project, an experimental theatre work, an incubator of collective practice, a feminist action, a cultural impact, a space for creative participation, a vehicle for radical social justice ideas to be aestheticized in a fiercely feminine way, a spectacle, an art event, and an educational activist project.
