Misaligned Mind
Misaligned Mind
Misaligned Mind is the passionate, Post Modern Renaissance Rock Spaceship band centered around the ground-breaking guitar and creative talents of Zack Wiesinger. Already notorious around the globe, Zack has garnered national and international attention while single-handedly opening the show for Guitar Legend Steve Vai on his 2006-07 Sound Theories Tour spanning Europe and the U.S. The West Mifflin native had his coming out party at the 2006 IBC in Memphis while taking the coveted "Albert King Award" for most promising guitarist. Not to mention his jaw-dropping performance at the Guitar Center King of The Blues finals in Los Angeles; which had YouTube buzzing for months. After learning the ropes of the music business in LA, Zack returned home to Pittsburgh to regroup and find new inspiration. It was there in the Steel City that he crossed paths with an old friend/musician Jarrod Tracey who was fresh back from several years in Atlanta, GA. Jarrod was looking to get serious in music and upon learning that Zack needed a band, he jumped at the opportunity. Together they found a writing chemistry neither had experienced with any other players in their travels. with a few shifts in the drums department, they finally linked up with old friend David Katonik to spank the percussion noises for the live shows and future recordings... Nino Albanese was brought into the fold for the electric piano and organ sounds. And Misaligned Mind was born....
Delicious Pastries
Delicious Pastries
delicious pastries are a pop outfit unencumbered by the fleeting dalliances of the new rock vogue. forged in the fire of friendship (pennsylvania) and galvanized by a deep love of the pop idiom, they create melodic vignettes as familiar as they are odd. whimsical and literate; equal parts yesterday and today.
Nox Boys
Nox Boys
Nox Boys are making a name for themselves.

The band, straight out of Blawnox, PA, debuted in 2014 with their self-titled album on record label Get Hip. Their record company’s co-owner, Gregg Kostelich of the Cynics, knew he had a formidable group of garage band enthusiasts who were ready to create a unique style of their own. He was right.

The Nox Boys have built quite a reputation in western PA, but their reach doesn’t end there. They’ve opened for notable bands such as Mudhoney, FIDLAR, Twin Peaks, The Black Lips, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Cynics, and many more. The Nox Boys reached a milestone in 2015, opening for Benjamin Booker on Three Rivers Arts Festival’s main stage in Pittsburgh, PA. They have received quite a bit of airplay on Little Stephen’s Underground Garage (SIRIUS XM), Burger Records Rock “N” Roll Radio Show, college radio, and mainstream radio stations in the Pittsburgh area such as WYEP, WDVE, THE X, and more.

Currently, the band is debuting new material in their usual high-energy performances. Although they are worlds away from the angst-filled psychedelia of their teenage years, the band has evolved into a serious garage rock outfit. Their sophomore effort will feature many rockers, as well as mature ballads that display the band’s great depth. You won’t want to miss this band.

After receiving worldwide critical acclaim, NOX BOYS are ready to take their new material for the next follow up LP this summer. Plans of recording session will be in October with Jim Diamond.

“A joyous summation of all that is great about rock ’n’ roll.”
John Ebbs | Shindig! Magazine

“Teen bands aren’t supposed to be this good. But the Nox Boys have great source material. Rather than trying to sound like Green Day or Arctic Monkeys or the Black Keys, this garage band led by rock prodigy Zack Keim takes its cues from Buddy Holly, the Kinks, the Stooges and Dylan. It’s no wonder the band was picked up by the Cynics-led local Get Hip Records for this year’s excellent debut album, which got some international radio play. If you saw the Nox Boys this year, and we hope you did, you saw a great young band (with one older uncle playing slide) on the ground floor.” Scott Mervis | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“These kids (and their veteran partner) are the R.F.D. (Real Effin’ Deal), whether you’re talking straight up Nuggetsraveups, turbocharged Stones/Kinks R&B swagger or Black Lips-styled supah-skronk.”

The Garment District
The Garment District
The Garment District is music by multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Baron, a founding member of Brooklyn's The Ladybug Transistor, a band which toured worldwide, released multiple albums on Merge Records, and played the first All Tomorrow's Parties Festival.

The Garment District's cassette Melody Elder, was released in 2001 on Night People Records. In 2014, they released the debut full-length album If You Take Your Magic Slow, also on Night People. Last year, they released their followup album Luminous Toxin on San Antonio-based Kendra Steiner Editions. Their latest three-song 7", released on La Station Radar, features a remix by British musician Sonic Boom (of Spacemen 3, E.A.R., and Spectrum).

The group has performed at VIA Fest opening for Julia Holter, the Andy Warhol Museum opening for Jenny Hval, at 6119 Penn opening for Cold Cave, and was selected by artist Doug Aitken to perform in his Station to Station film series. Their music features contributions by Jennifer's cousin Lucy Blehar, Jowe Head (of UK's Swell Maps and Television Personalities) and Kevin C. Smith. Jennifer is also the co-coordinator of Handmade Arcade, Pittsburgh's first and largest indie craft fair, and co-editor/photographer for the award-winning book, Pittsburgh Signs
Project: 250 Signs of Western Pennsylvania (Carnegie Mellon Press).
