Virginia Creep
Virginia Creep
Virginia Creep is a rock band.
Accidents
Accidents
Described as "frantic, gutsy, energetic, grungy, no-bullshit punk rock", Accidents are not an act for the weary. They started partying in May of 2010, and haven't even remotely slowed down. From melodic pop punk tunes to grunge anthems, Accidents reflect a variety of musical influences in their songs. Having developed a loyal fan base in the DC area, Accidents like to use their popularity for a good cause, as Cher Horawitz would put it; organizing shows for charities such as City Year, The Paw Project, and Pink Jams to name a few. The band's hard work has earned them headlining slots in the area's top venues, such as 9:30 Club, Rock and Roll Hotel, The State Theater, Empire and Jammin Java, as long as supporting major touring acts such as Andrew WK, The Misfits, DRI, and Emery. You should totally come check out a show, grab a beer or five, and jump in the pit. Accidents like to party.
FuzzQueen
FuzzQueen
FuzzQueen revels in a “seething tension” that serves to both mirror and confront the political climate through sonic exploration. Forged in the glowing embers of Washington D.C. following the 2016 election and subsequent Women’s March, the members of FuzzQueen are entrenched in the thriving DIY community of the nation’s capital. While keenly aware of the inescapably political nature of their locale, they coalesce around issues of social injustice and feminine power while also reveling in a “seething tension” that serves to both mirror and confront the political climate through sonic exploration.

"...music that’s expensively savage, like rotting metal. In fact, FuzzQueen’s sound is an entirely new sonic paradigm. And it’s excellent, full of intuition, guts and an instinctual feel." - Huffington Post

"Turbulent times breed turbulent songs. FuzzQueen’s new single “Angry, Angry” is an invigorating anthem for the marginalized, a cacophony of repressed rage exploding through the airwaves with empowered fury." - Atwood Magazine
Black Dog Prowl
Black Dog Prowl
Black Dog Prowl is screaming guitars, door-busting drums, driving bass and powerful vocals. Think of the musical lovechild of Led Zeppelin and Soundgarden combined with the vocal styling of Kurt Cobain and Jim Morrison.
Gritty vocalist and guitarist Josh Finver fronts this Washington, D.C., based four-piece that features Robert Peters on lead guitar and an explosive rhythm section featuring drummer Enzo Ferroggiaro. Though the band takes inspiration from rock pioneers that have come before, Black Dog Prowl has a sound that is very much its own and a high-energy live show that is among the best the nation’s capital has to offer.
After the release of Half Truths & Lies in 2010, which OnTap Magazine calls “a spectacular debut,” the band’s underground following in D.C. began to bubble to the surface. Packed venues across the District and a devoted, ever-expanding fanbase were not far behind. BDP’s reputation began to spread to surrounding areas and the band started traveling north to Baltimore and New York City. This band of brothers has found itself sharing bills with such national acts as Truth & Salvage Co., A Thousand Horses, The Parlor Mob (2011 iTunes Rock Album of the Year recipients) and the incomparable Steel Panther.
In 2011, with the addition of Peters and departure of founding member Micah McCutchan, the band has taken a grungier turn. BDP spent the better part of the year working with Scott Robinson in Sonic Sweets Studios on the follow up to Half Truths. In January 2012 the band released the Vapor EP, and the explosive title track received airplay on Baltimore’s 98 Rock, along with various internet and college radio stations. Upon listening the EP, Marcus Dowling from OnTap wrote, “If you’re a fan of popular music desperate to remember what happened to the raw vitality that rock and roll once provided, Black Dog Prowl appear poised and ready to provide the answer to your soul’s desires.”
The music video for ‘Vapor,’ directed by Alex Wohleber, had fans buzzing with anticipation of what the future holds. Now, on May 21, 2013, the band will release their brand new single and music video for ‘No Robots’. This single was also produced by Robinson and the video directed by Wohleber, while the bass was recorded by Scott Ensign of the Niki Barr Band. Hold on to your butts.
