TENNIS is the Denver-based husband and wife duo of guitarist Patrick Riley and singer/keyboardist Alaina Moore. Their unique sound -- a mix of 50’s pop, indie garage and Motown -- has made the band a staple on indie radio and led to sold out shows throughout the country. Recent EP Small Sound (Communion) is a prelude to a full length album due out this spring.
LOLAWOLF is a trio from New York fronted by Zoë Kravitz. The band includes Jimmy Giannopoulos and James Levy from Reputante (whose EP is out on Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas’ label, Cult Records). The band recorded their five song debut EP over a ten day stretch last summer in Los Angeles; a “sleep-deprived experiment among friends.” (Interview Magazine). The sound of the EP has been described as “surging electronic pop” (Pitchfork); “synth-pop, held together by Kravitz’ smoky, relaxed voice” (The Fader); and “electro-tinged alt-R&B” (SPIN). Neon Gold called lead track "Drive (Los Angeles) “a perfect piece of distinctive, melody-driven, back-to-the-future synth candy."
Seth Herzog is currently the warm-up comic for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and also appears in sketches on the show. His long running weekly show “Sweet” is a staple of the downtown alternative comedy scene. Seth appears regularly on VH1's "Best Week Ever" and "All Access".
Craig Baldo is the warm up comic for the The Colbert Report and has appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Last Comic Standing (finalist season 1), Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, NBC’s Late Friday, VH1 and Showtime.
