The Shondes are a rock quartet based in Brooklyn, New York, who make dramatic and powerful rock music, fusing the various musical traditions of Classical, Jewish, Queercore, and Feminist Punk. Often compared to Patti Smith and Sleater Kinney, The Shondes have a unique sound that is devastating, heartbreaking, and transcendent, transfixing audiences with the richness and passion of their songs. The high energy of their live shows bring audiences along for the ride, and audience members are swept into the world of the show, often singing along, dancing, and swaying to the heavy rhythms and soaring melodies. http://www.shondes.com/
Broadcast Live is a project born in Albany, NY's anarchist activist community. The group's objective is to promote social change through music, and to speak truth to power. The music is a union of revolutionary ideals and many styles, ranging from hiphop and rock, to reggae and folk. The band uses a wide array of live instruments as well as beats, and is known for its bombastic live performances. http://www.myspace.com/broadcastlive
