If Witch Hair told you they spent the Winter of 16/17 recording their EP in a freezing cold five story warehouse that may or may not have been a former Uranium processing facility or ballistics lab throughout WWII you might get an idea as to why they are so excited to get out and perform this Spring and Summer. They’ve crafted their songs on tales of motorcycle gangs, psychedelic breaks with reality, and have veered into putting a voice to their political views by hosting large benefits for Planned Parenthood and with songs like “You Are Not A Surface” and “Sanctuary City”. An atypical trio, each person sings and writes their own songs since the addition of Tom Connolly (Drums/Vocals) in November 2016. His presence solidified a sound that is at times psych heavy and droning while managing to maintain it’s melodic roots with Joe Russo (Guitar/Vocals) and Ashley Kenney (Bass/Vocals) singing haunting harmonies to Connolly’s deep baritone.
Founded in the winter of 2014 with borrowed guitars and a month long trial of Ableton; Laundry Day began as an experiment amongst friends but quickly found traction both in their hometown of New Haven and in surrounding cities.
With shows at The Bowery Electric, and BAR, supporting roles for bands like You Won't, Frontier Ruckus, The Spring Standards, and Jeffrey Lewis. With friends in high and low places, Laundry Day are all too excited to see what their project has in store for them.
The Right Offs
The Right Offs are a New Haven, CT. based rock n' roll trio who consistently channel every ounce of joy, grit, and energy they can muster into their music. Fronted by the soulful and instantly memorable vocals of singer/songwriter/guitarist Max Loignon, the band also includes the dynamic rhythm section of Than Rolnick on bass/backing vocals and drummer Bob Breychak. Of their live performances the New Haven Independent said "The Right Offs sounded tight, even tighter than the band is on its last release, and more ferocious, raging around the twists and turns in the band's clever, tightly wound material," while the #NewHavenMusicblog called one of their recent shows "one of the most high energy performances at Cafe Nine in recent memory...". In 2016 the Right Offs self-released their debut album Quiet Down to rave reviews in local press. Chip McCabe's 'The Metal Dad' blog named Quiet Down as the best non-metal album of 2016, while the 'Twangri-La' blog commented, after a favorable review of the album, "I can only imagine their stage presence." In March 2017 NYC's The Deli Magazine named The Right Offs as one of the Best New England Emerging Artists of the year, putting in writing what everyone already knows: The Right Offs are a force to be reckoned with now and in the future beyond. Currently, the boys are working on their sophomore LP due for release in 2018.
