Melissa Lusk from Boy Girl Party joins us. Their debut 5-song EP, Dear Dear, shows off sweet 3-part harmonies over pop melodies that punch & crackle out of gritty-but-clean power chords. Quirky & salty lyrics by lead singer Melissa Lusk pepper radio-ready hooks, with clean & clear vocals that are almost always under control. The band’s cumulative love of piano-based pop, post-punk, contemporary praise music and the American songbook burrows down into the fertile Brooklyn indie rock scene and emerges with 18 1/2 minutes of catchy indie pop.

Chicago improvisers Zach Bartz and Kevin Gerrity combine years of training and technique with radical energy and rapid-fire transformations to create a truly unique improv experience. Gnar Gnar Shredtown showcases a trust that can only be found between two best friends and theatrics that can only be brought by seasoned improvisers. www. shitholehq.tumblr.com
