The Sloppy Boys are a Los Feliz, CA based party-rock band led by Mike Hanford, Jefferson Dutton and Tim Kalpakis from the sketch comedy group The Birthday Boys. The group is well-known for their IFC television series (The Birthday Boys) produced by and co-starring Bob Odenkirk (Mr. Show, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul). In recent years, the Sloppy Boys have started a wildly popular cocktail podcast (also called The Sloppy Boys) and have released their third full-length LP titled ‘Sonic Ranch’ which features Money Mark (Beastie Boys, more). The band has been touring and performing to enthusiastic crowds in support of the new record.
Dear Blanca began as the primary musical outlet for South Carolina’s Dylan Dickerson. The project evolved into a three-piece outfit that treads the fine line between 70’s power-pop and modern indie classics. A powerhouse rhythm section comprised of Cam Powell and Richie Harper provides a backbone of taut grooves that underly the emotionally diverse catalog of songs. The band’s most recent full-length LP is titled ‘Perched’ and features an appearance by Mike Watt of the legendary Minutemen/The Stooges. In 2023, Dear Blanca performed at Hopscotch Music Festival alongside acts such as Dinosaur Jr., Pavement, Alvvays, Japanese Breakfast and more), released a new EP titled ‘Nothing You Do Is Quiet’ featuring artwork by the iconic Raymond Pettibon, and lost in a heated tennis doubles match against Malkmus & Nastanovich of Pavement.
