Bottled Up is a DC rock and roll quintet growing its roots from surf, new-wave, 70’s rock, and punk ethos. Founded in Oakland, CA by Nikhil Rao (former Kid Quazar, Seasick!, and Shari La La’s), he restarted the project w/ a new line-up of local DC musicians. They just put out their energetic lo-fi punk self-titled EP on cassette with Chicago garage/experimental label Maximum Pelt Records, and were christened by Ian MacKaye himself at Fort Reno Festival 2017.
