So check them out. This is going to be an epic event!!! Check out these artists below!

Paige Allbritton - from Philadelphia/Arkansas
Performing at Twisted Tail 8/16
Paige Allbritton, a singer/songwriter, and recent transplant to Philadelphia, was raised in Little Rock, Arkansas. Paige was born into a family of musicians and artists, and was inundated with incredible music from the day she was born, from Classic Country, Rock & Roll and Bluegrass, to Gospel, R&B and pop. Eventually, Paige’s natural affinity for music began to take its hold, and she picked up a guitar and started writing songs, and singing them to anyone that was willing to listen. Ten years after receiving her first guitar, and after hundreds of thrown out pieces of paper with scribbled words that never became verses, she has grown into a singer/songwriter that has the ability to write songs that speak to all types of people. Paige’s heartfelt lyrics and simple guitar rhythms settle perfectly between the nostalgia of acoustic country and folk, and the heart of blues and rock music. All of that, paired with a soulful voice that can lull a drunken crowd and a genuine, lighthearted, girl-next-door personality, she is bound to capture the attention of many.
Glim Dropper - from Philadelphia

“This entire CD is comprised of songs that offer much to the music world, bringing back some styles that surely never die. With some new styles that not many bands can pull off as well as I feel Glim Dropper has with this CD. It left me wanting to hear more, and wanting to see them perform these tracks live. I very much recommend "The Last Days of Analog" to all who appreciate the roots of music, as well as to people open to new retro sounds. ”
Mile Marker Zero- from New Haven, CT.
From the moment they formed in 2003, New Haven, Connecticut quintet Mile Marker Zero have taken a slightly off-kilter, multi-tiered approach towards rock music that bordered on duality. Their songs are epic and ambitious, filled with unconventional arrangements and challenging rhythms yet they also flow with powerful melodies and memorable choruses. Even their name is a dichotomy.
Combining well-crafted songs with technical proficiency, and raw energy with sonic intensity, the band creates gritty hard rock that bristles with progressive rock influences. 
“We’ve always wanted to write music that was a real experience for the listener,” says Alley. “We grew up listening to early progressive rock so we liked epic songwriting, but we were also into mid-90s rock which was much more direct. So we really wanted to be kind of grandiose and over the top, but we wanted to be strongly melodic and didn‘t want to be over people‘s heads.”
Sami Grisafe Band- from Chicago, IL.

“CBS Chicago features Sami Grisafe Band, Chicago Music Award winning Best Rock Entertainer”
"With the dropping of Atlantis, Sami, Jaclyn Rada and Shannon Nicole have created what few artists seem to be able to capture now-a-days—real, genuine music. The album transcends common notions of genre and niche, bopping along from soul-wrenching lyrical numbers to upbeat-you-must-shake-your-rump-and-clap-your-hands reggae infused pop"
A Fire With Friends- from Scranton, PA.

“A Fire with Friends is everything that you could want form an indie band, great sound, interesting lyrics, and character and personality that find its way into every song”
“For me, the intricate soft sounds the guitars create are mind blowing, the almost dresdon dollesque piano leaves me in awe as to how it sounds so illuminating in each song, and their lyrics are prone to being the envy of every artist who strives to write pure genius.”
Black Stars- from Marlton, NJ.

"Think James Brown fronting Rage Against The Machine with Flea holding it down on bass."
Black Stars are proof that rock music is fun. Now is the time to catch this band at a live show — they are young and raw, and loud, and electrifying, and a little insane, and probably only going to get more popular. I think they are a band to keep an eye on."
