Toxic Moxie
Toxic Moxie
Tearing their way up and down the east coast in their rusty blue conversion van, Richmond heartthrobs Toxic Moxie have been winning over diverse audiences of punx, hippies, EDM kids and everyone in between with their instantly accessible brand of Dirty Disco Punk. Whether they are falling asleep face down on your carpet or pressuring you to finish your bottle of whiskey, it's always a party. But take a moment to reflect on the substance found on their three EP series, and one finds a much deeper well of inspiration that draws from progressive politics and social issues in a context larger than the houses, bars, and clubs that they turn into delirious sweat orgies.
Natural Velvet
Natural Velvet
Baltimore based proudly queer alternative, post-punk band, NATURAL VELVET, fuses pop song structure with dark lyrics, and wild guitars to create a noisy dialectic; featuring Corynne Ostermann on bass and vocals, Spike Arreaga on guitar, Kim Te on guitar, and Greg Hatem on drums. Their newest record, Mirror To Make You, deals with concepts of rage, feminine anger, image and identity, and power. These concepts are layered between squealing guitars, driving bass, and the pounding drums present throughout all of Natural Velvet’s recordings and live performances.
Orange Drink
ORANGE DRINK is a one-man band created by the gay musician Drew Prusko from Milwaukee, WI. In 2016, Drew (a VCU alum) successfully completed the challenge of completing one song a week for the entire year. He’s been releasing the results online, which have his fans checking in each week to find him jumping from folk to rap to punk to noise to electronic. On stage, he’s been bringing the party to the masses with his boundlessly energetic live performance backed by experimental electronic dance music. With a show that builds to a wild crescendo, Drew’s infectious passion and enthusiasm will keep you dancing and sweating and screaming at the top of your lungs. Drew hopes that the positivity from his music and live performance will inspire others to be true to themselves. Music critics have been impressed with the diversity of output from Orange Drink and we're excited to have him through as a sort of homecoming!
