Toxic Moxie
Toxic Moxie
Tearing their way up and down the east coast in their rusty blue conversion van, Richmond heartthrobs Toxic Moxie have been winning over diverse audiences of punx, hippies, EDM kids and everyone in between with their instantly accessible brand of Dirty Disco Punk. Whether they are falling asleep face down on your carpet or pressuring you to finish your bottle of whiskey, it’s always a party. But take a moment to reflect on the substance found on their three EP series, and one finds a much deeper well of inspiration that draws from progressive politics and social issues in a context larger than the houses, bars, and clubs that they turn into delirious sweat orgies.
Murphy's Kids
Murphy's Kids
Murphy's Kids has been melting faces and shaking asses since 1999, with the goal of spreading good vibes and great music across state lines and narrow minds. They are coming to a town near you and the message they bring is this: LET'S GET DOWN!
Manic Pixi
Manic Pixi is an East Coast based Pop Punk tour de force. Take Paramore, inject them with sweeter pop-punk melodies a la Letters to Cleo, rub them down with No Doubt, drop them in a bowl full of Hole, pan fry on high in Blink 182, season with Four Year Strong and you wind up with alternative pop-punk four-piece, Manic Pixi. The band is now joined by prolific songwriter, producer, and bassist, James Macpherson.

On paper, Manic Pixi sound like they’d be an absolute hodgepodge: Kat Hamilton, a pop songwriter who grew up belting to Britney Spears and Gwen Stefani; Emmett Ceglia, a hardcore drummer who can fall asleep to Dillinger Escape Plan on loop; Marshall Biever, a prodigious funk guitarist who once snuck into a Bernhoft concert; and Drew Bastian on bass, who hails from the musical theater world and drinks his coffee from a Motion City Soundtrack mug. Sit down with the band for five minutes and you would ask yourself how these four people ever got together, but, judging by the rush that is their debut album Sugar Bomb!, it is Manic Pixi’s differences that make their music incendiary.

With Alberto de Icaza of Machine Shop fame at the production helm, Manic Pixi will be releasing their sophomore LP Iron Heart in 2016, ready to show the world their musical range and a graduation to something fresher. With the raucous, eponymous single, “Iron Heart”, the more mature Pixis are out for pop-punk tinted blood. “If I call you/ if I hold you / you say I’m trying too hard” bellows Hamilton over Biever’s infectious guitar riffs. By the time the blistering bridge highlights Ceglia’s colossal chops, It is obvious that Manic Pixi are back with music to lambaste anyone that stands in their way.

“I could walk you through a tome of our ups and downs: walking thirty blocks with all our gear in the rain to play a twenty-minute set, the many jobs we all work, the myriad of other opportunities we repeatedly turn down, or the wear and tear on our bodies,” says Hamilton. “No matter what has come our way, this band has been the most resourceful and loyal group of musicians I have ever met. We are as unbreakable as metal.”

Manic Pixi isn’t just a band, it’s a family. Fans leave live shows emphatically saying, “You can tell they love it - that they love each other.” It is more than the music that inspires their small but devoted fanbase, it is the commitment. The commitment to a live performance that leaves every bead of sweat on the stage. The commitment to making records that take the listener on an adrenaline roller coaster. The commitment to being the band that hugs the most and rocks the hardest.
