Show Lineup

Mightmare

(Chapel Hill)
Genre: Indie Rock

Mightmare is the solo project of River Shook, a queer non-binary writer, composer, producer, and performer, most known for fronting punk country band Sarah Shook & the Disarmers. Mightmare’s debut album Cruel Liars showcases River’s versatility as an artist, writer, and singer, leaning hard into early influences such as Elliott Smith, Interpol, Belle & Sebastian, and Blonde Redhead.
Cruel Liars is a riff-centric wading in the indie rock dark pop shallows with sleek hooks and a sense of unstoppability in the face of imminent danger. Mightmare makes you feel seen, heard, and indomitable.

Rat Bath

(Milwaukee, WI)
Genre: Punk
Rat Bath is all queer all the time, spooky country core cuties. Debut album “Rat From Hell” out Feb 18th, 2022.

Kat and the Hurricane

(Madison, WI)
Genre: Pop

Kat and the Hurricane is an award-winning genre- and gender-bending indie-pop/synth-rock trio from Madison, Wisconsin. Lead singer/guitarist Kat Farnsworth (they/them), keyboardist/vocalist Benjamin Rose (they/them), and drummer Alex Nelson (they/them) deliver a unique blend of pop and haunting indie rock they affectionately refer to as “Sad Lesbian Music.” 

A trio of all-queer and all-trans musicians, they write predominantly about maneuvering through a world that does not find value in their experiences or community. Themes of struggling with poor mental health, navigating difficult relationships, and finding resilience in moments of isolation are threaded through the band’s discography. Acutely aware of how little queer and trans musicians were positively represented in the music industry when they were growing up, Kat and the Hurricane hope to be that representation for a new generation of queer and trans musicians – and shift the music industry from within to better center marginalized artists and their experiences.

Dandy L. Freling

(Milwaukee)
Genre: Americana

Combining a touch of the high and lonesome hollers of the Appalachian hill people with the low-down, dusty grooves of the cosmic cowboys, Dandy has created a unique sonic banquet sure to satisfy the hunger of any weary passerby. So don’t be afraid to stop awhile. And fill up your plate, there’s plenty to go around.
