The Rare Occassions
Drawing inspiration from each successive wave of garage rock, The Rare Occasions put their own dark spin on retro. A dizzying cacophony of angular riffs and dripping wet lyrics, the Boston-via-Providence quartet first formed in a Tufts University practice space three years ago. Since then, The Rare Occasions have performed for festival audiences at SXSW in Austin and CMJ in New York City, self-produced three critically-acclaimed EPs, and opened for internationally touring acts including Guster, Dirty Heads, Lupe Fiasco, AJR, and Knox Hamilton. Their blistering psych-anthem "Dysphoric" took home Song of the Year in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest.
Grizzly Derringer
Americana Rock
The Littlest Viking
Instrumental prog/punk guitar/drums duo based out of Whittier, Ca. I don't know if that's technically a genre but if it is we might be boldly categorized as such. Tamborines, outrageous drum fills, wicked tapping, hoarse shouting, noise freakouts, salsa beats and the occasional MJ sample are a staple of any TLV live show.
