Washington, DC’s Sub-Radio makes smart, danceable pop rock that’s always expanding its boundaries. The sextet’s high-energy live performances and variety of outstanding vocalists have put them on the map up and down the East Coast. The band’s clean guitars, dancefloor rhythms, and powerful vocals have garnered comparisons to established pop-rock acts like Walk The Moon and Two Door Cinema Club. Multiple songs have been recognized in national songwriting competitions, and Sub-Radio has gigged heavily across the region, playing at the Cherry Blossom Festival, LAUNCH, Celebrate Fairfax, Dewey Beach Music Conference, and Firefly 2017. Following the success of their 2016 debut Same Train//Different Station, the band embarked on an ongoing series of monthly singles in April 2017. Sub-Radio is composed of Adam Bradley (vocals), Matt Prodanovich (guitar), Mike Chinen (guitar/keyboards), John Fengya (guitar/keyboards), Michael Pereira (drums), and Barry Siford (bass).

Unring the Bell
Like a middle-aged phoenix that rose from the ashes and then bought a 55-inch flatscreen, Unring the Bell formed in 2012 and then spent the next 3-plus years indoors, confirming its line-up and refining its sound. The band's current roster features members of DC metal act, Brave, and erstwhile indie-rock troupes Edgewood, and DC elite [velvet]. The result is the sonic equivalent of a unicorn with nunchuks: upbeat modern-rock with a pop catchiness that's destined to leave a post aural scar.
