The Trillions
The Trillions
Richmond, Virginia based The Trillions siphon sounds from their favorite high-intensity bands: some pop wizardry from The Strokes, big-and-loud drums from Led Zeppelin and The Who, a dose of bombastic shred and guitar feedback from Pinkerton-era Weezer, smears of vocal attitude from The Buzzcocks, all drizzled with some topical lyrics and harmonies à la The Beatles, The Zombies, or Dr. Dog. In 2013, they were named as one of Virginia's top 12 bands you should listen to now by Paste magazine. The band recently toured with J Roddy Walston and the Business. That tour included a sold out show at New York's famous Bowery Ballroom, as well as, sold out shows in Boston and Richmond. Since 2010, the band has also opened up for national touring acts such as The Head and The Heart, Girl Talk, Best Coast, Motion City Soundtrack, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, Jukebox the Ghost, and many others.
Gold Connections
Gold Connections
Gold Connections is a VA-based indie rock outfit, melding vintage sounds with punk tenacity.

While the band started at William and Mary among such acts as Car Seat Headrest and Swampblossom, frontman and songwriter Will Marsh relocated to Charlottesville after graduation.

Thanks to a successful crowd-sourcing campaign in Fall 2015, Marsh recorded his debut LP: Popular Fiction. Tracked at Mitch Easter's Fidelitorium Recordings in Kernersville, NC, and produced by Daniel Levi Goans of Lowland Hum, Popular Fiction explores the mystery of nostalgia, religion, and coming-of-age. The record is planned for a Spring 2017 release.

After completing his first LP, Marsh formed the new Gold Connections lineup with Charlottesville High School friends Patrick Haggerty and Noah Rosner. They channel the rawness and immediacy of a homegrown power trio––evoking Neil Young's melodic noise and Television's poetic attack.
Manatree
Manatree
Manatree's unique blend of guitar driven indie rock/pop has been enthralling audiences both in and out of Richmond, Virginia since 2009. The band formed while in middle school and consisted of Jack Mayock (lead vocals, guitar), Tristan Fisher (lead guitar, vocals), Noma Illmensee (bass, vocals), and Jack Oliver (percussion). In fall 2014 Oliver left the band and Alex Elder joined in on percussion. They've played with acts like Real Estate, Surfer Blood, Darwin Deez, PAWS, American Aquarium, and more. They like to have fun, but they work hard too.
