THE SHONDES (rhymes with “Hondas” and Yiddish for “shames” or “disgraces”) are a rock band from Brooklyn, NY, who play Bikini Kill-meets-Bruce Springsteen-style sing-along anthems for you. Formed by best friends Louisa Rachel Solomon and Elijah Oberman back in 2006, the band has released four albums, including 2013′s critically-acclaimed The Garden (praised by Rolling Stone, Billboard, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, etc.). The band has toured the U.S. with Against Me! and headlined U.S. and European tours, including shows with Uh Huh Her, Electrelane, Rasputina, MEN, Caithlin De Marrais (Rainer Maria), Franz Nicolay (The Hold Steady), Mary Timony (Helium, Wild Flag), Erase Errata, Amy Ray (The Indigo Girls), Joe Lally (Fugazi), Mecca Normal, Bonfire Madigan, Party Line (Bratmobile), Lesbians on Ecstasy, Kaia Wilson (Team Dresch) and many more; and performed at festivals including CMJ Music Festival in New York, South By Southwest in Austin, and North By Northeast in Toronto.
JULIE OF THE WOLVES is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Carrie Neumayer (Second Story Man, Early Age), Stephanie Gary (Venus Trap, The Frequent Sea), Salena Filichia (Madame Machine, Venus Trap) and Becca Lindsay (The Red Nails, Minnow). Those are only a partial listing of the bands these people have been in. This lineup has a lot of Louisville musical history running through it. The name of the band comes from the 1972 book by Jean Craighead George, in which the title character must face changes and dangerous challenges forced upon her from culture, the elements and humankind. “These are challenging tunes that do not shy from pushing and pulling simultaneously, a teaming between catchy melodies and a pounding aggression.” — American Gloam.
HAILEY WOJCIK’s darkly witty lyrics and fierce aesthetic have earned her the title of “the Wednesday Addams of her genre” (The Deli Magazine), and My Old Kentucky Blog notes that she “sounds mighty fine at volumes that may disturb others who may be in the room with you.” Her music and videos have caught the attention of Magnet, After Ellen, MTV, Logo, and Girls Get Busy Zine. She has co-directed several music videos, many of which included her own stop-motion animation. Her debut album, Diorama, was produced by Dan Romer in 2010 (Beasts of the Southern Wild, Jenny Owen Youngs, Jukebox the Ghost). In the intervening years since releasing Diorama, Hailey pursued a side project, the garage rock two-piece, WOJCIK, which released an eponymous EP and an LP entitled Wise Blood, in 2012 and 2013, respectively. The Book of Beasts EP comes out on March 3rd, 2015 on cassette with Wiener Records.
