FROM THE FACEBOOK Event page: “Their self titled EP, which was mastered by the late George Marino (AC/DC’s Highway to Hell, Bon Jovi’s Slippery When Wet, Coldplay’s A Rush of Blood to the Head and Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs just to name a few), was released this August and it is dark, yet fun and extremely pleasing to the ears thanks to lead singer, Emily Power’s, voice. Think Karen-O meets Shirley Manson and they jam with The Sounds!”
- “The music of Shy Around Strangers is a hybrid-genre where the eccentric meets the accessible with a subtext of atmospheric textures underneath pop song structures, influenced by the nostalgic romanticism of early 80s New Wave, Goth and Post-Punk and the raw emotions of the early 90s” (from their bio). Listen here.

- The Primes are a three piece poppy girl-garage rock band. They’re fond of polka dots, spectacles, hoodies and rainbows. We just made that up on the spot after looking at the photo to the right. Listen here.
