Don Babylon
Don Babylon
Formed in 2013 and hailing from Richmond, Virginia, Don Babylon churns out drunk, sad rock'n'roll in between kitchen shifts and last call. After recording a number of EPs in 2017 the group released their debut album, Babe. The album tackles suicide and substance abuse with the wry wit of a barstool prophet. Will Toledo of Car Seat Headrest called it, “one of the best albums of 2017” and another reviewer compares them to a drunk punk Elvis Presley. The band has played with acts such as Car Seat Headrest, Diarrhea Planet, and A Place to Bury Strangers. They survived and thrived through their first U.S national tour and have begun writing their second album.
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.
