Blubird's EP Release Show with Americanadian, Sterling Duns (Hardwork Movement) & Aqeel Aadam and Friends and Well Room.
Blubird: Soon after the four matched on an online dating site due to their shared interest in fast cars and centaurs, they fell in love and soon realized their destiny; to merge their love for lucky charms and bob Dylan in order to create a new kind of noise they would later coin as brofi. In 2016, the Philadelphia natives recorded their debut album at the Headroom with Kyle Pulley. In an interview after their coachella tri-mega headlining ritual, these ambitious young fries said they hope to take control of the fast food industry once they grow tired of touring the galaxy’s outer rim. They… will release their new EP "Notes" on July 20th 2018.
Americanadian: Serena Scalzi, rhythm/lead/vox of Americanadian, began to write her own dreamy type music under the moniker Americanadian back in 2015. She would release her originals through Bandcamp and nothing else to it. Later, Serena wanted to hear her music in a full-fledged band. She gathered up some friends she's known for a while and ones that she has just met. Nina Fuchs, drummer of Americanadian has known Serena since back in 2014. Serena knew Nina would be a perfect fit for this band since they've known each other long enough. Once they played together they wanted to get more people in on this fantastic music making. Jeff Weingarten, rhythm/lead/vox of Americanadian joined, Michael Algarra, bassist of Americanadian and Abby Woodcock, keys of Americanadian. Fully becoming a band in 2017, Americanadian continues their journey till this day.
