Sealion
Sealion
Sealion is a 4 piece band from Dallas TX, with surf, punk, and Indie influences. This past summer they completed multiple national tours including a run with The Toadies. In the past two years Sealion has played countless shows and shared the stage with bands such as Man or Astro-Man? The Coathangers, Cloud Nothings, Pond, The Men, Crystal Antlers, Turbo Fruits, Diarrhea Planet, White Fang, Mind Spiders, Jaill, Tim Kasher(cursive), Surf City, Bare Wires, The Zoltars, Bass Drum of Death, Japanther, Single Mothers, White Lung, Titus Andronicus, Fungi Girls and more.

Known for an anything goes live show with their tightly knit fan base in tow that will dance the night away like it is their last, it is definitely one worth checking out and is a constant mention in several online "must attend show of the week" from local media sources(Dallas Observer, DC9 at night, Central Track, D magazine, DFW.com, Ft worth Weekly, Fort Live). At any given one of these gatherings of music, friends, and alcohol you could witness anything from an intimate, calm set, to having band members on the ground or in the air playing their instruments while the crowd dives into the drums. It's an experience everyone should be a part of and once you have, you cannot wait for the next.

Sealion pulls influences from bands such as The Pixies and The Nerves along with various punk bands from the 70's-90's, 60's garage & surf and 50's pop into a sound all their own.
Siamese
Siamese
Siamese is the psychedelic band of four theatrically inclined friends from Dallas, Texas. Mixing avant glam art pop with lush handmade set design and murderous alter egos, their live show makes you feel like you could go out and invent a new color, or wear a leotard to work.

Monoculture
Monoculture
Monoculture is Dallas' own psychedelic blues rock group. What once started as aimless jams between founders and longtime friends Olan Mijana and Nick Leibold became something with a little more purpose when the two convened in the summer of 2013 to improvise their way through an incomplete work titled "Pastel Prison" that would later become a staple in their live performance arsenal. A solo ad-libbed performance of the tune on a busker's guitar in an NYC subway that received an ovation from passerbys was all that was needed for the two to realize they were onto something. Those once aimless jams soon became a four-track demo that the two worked on together while 300 miles apart.

That demo was just the start, leading them to a couple of studio sessions, a number of well-attended live shows in Dallas and Austin, and finally the completion of their debut album "Heavier Daze," released on February 23, 2016.
Heavier Daze switches between several moods, from soulful blues, jingle-jangle psych pop, noisy, wall-of-sound fuzz rock, Spanish melodies, and music to gallop to across the desert. The overarching concept is a nod to the guitar and its phenomenal ability to transport a listener anywhere.

Later joined by bass player Jason Trevino, Monoculture's studio sounds took shape on the stage in a more stripped-down power trio format, focusing on the energetic, improvisational approach to rock & roll that epitomized the iconic acts of the 60's.

After a couple of shows honing their craft, Monoculture felt the need to expand their live sound so brought on a friend of Jason's on keys, John Valentine, who made his debut with the band at their Heavier Daze release show at the Foundry on February 20.

Rosegarden Funeral Party
Rosegarden Funeral Party
Rosegarden Funeral Party is an alternative band from Dallas, Tx fronted by Austin Camp and Leah Lane. Inspired by everything from 60's psychedelia, to 80's gothic/new wave music, to 90's shoegaze, to modern alternative bands of the psych scene, Rosegarden Funeral Party brings forth innovation and individualism to the stage.
Austin Camp is a long-time guitarist and composer. With the extensive knowledge of pedals and an incredible ear, he creates music that expands beyond traditional boundaries. He started his musical career in Dallas band Art for Motels and went on to join another Dallas act, the Orange. In both groups, Camp added unique textures and ingenious parts that gave each band a unique and interesting sound.
Leah Lane, a well seasoned musician, has been actively gigging in the Deep Ellum area and nationally for three years with her previous band Moon Waves. A vocalist first, Lane expands to keyboards and guitar playing. Writing for Moon Waves and her solo project as well as for Rosegarden Funeral Party, Lane is a versatile writer inspired by all types of music.
They are joined by Wil Farrier on bass who previously fronted his own band, Black Vega. In Black Vega, Will posed as the main song-writer, vocalist, and guitarist and brings a higher level of musical know-how to the group due to his degree in guitar studies from Booker T Washington HSPVA.
Nate Litz, the drummer for Dallas indie band Field Guide, plays synth in Rosegarden Funeral Party and brings depth and dynamics to the music with leading lines that add to the group's wall of sound. Nate has played with guitarist, Austin Camp, for many years and was the synth player in Camp's previous band, Art For Motels.
Tate Christopher from Vegan Shark drums for the band. He is extremely well-versed in recording and all different styles of drumming.
These five musical individuals have come together to create Rosegarden Funeral Party.
