3rd Planet Festival
3rd Planet Festival
On March 24, 2015, Emily Selke tragically lost her life alongside her mother, Yvonne, on the Germanwings Flight 9525 crash. Emily's goal in life was to curate her own music festival, and she made huge strides in accomplishing this before her life was tragically cut short. She was a festival manager for the Pittsburg Fringe Festival, which she represented at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival during the summer of 2013. She was also the only American invited to participate in the inaugural IFEA Festival Management Summer School in Barcelona.

Our goal for the 3rd Planet Festival is to keep to keep Emily's passion for live music alive, as well as celebrate the lives of these two incredible women on the one-year anniversary of the crash. All proceeds for the festival will go toward the Emily and Yvonne Selke Memorial Fund, which benefits college students like Emily who wish to study or work in the music industry abroad.
Bombadil
Bombadil
"The melodies are chipper, the hooks prominent, the performances energetic, and the arrangements full to bursting with ideas" – Paste Magazine

“bursting with irresistible melodies, unexpected lyrical gems, and moments of profound honesty, all anchored by expert songwriting skills" – Time Out New York

Durham, North Carolina-based trio Bombadil hit the road this December to showcase their ambitious blend of folk-pop, previewing brand new songs from their new album to be released March 2017 on Ramseur Records, produced and engineered by John Vanderslice (Death Cab for Cutie, The Mountain Goats, St. Vincent, Spoon). Over the past decade, the band – Daniel Michalak (piano, guitar, vocals), James Phillips (percussion, vocals), and newest member Stacy Harden (bass, guitar, vocals) – have built a steady following, earning the support of media outlets including The New York Times and NPR. Called “multi-textured, wildly inventive, eclectic, and hugely enjoyable,” Bombadil write songs featuring infectious melodies and lush vocal harmonies, telling stories of love and the curiosities of life.

Dolph Ramseur, head of Ramseur Records/Management, discovered Bombadil on the band’s MySpace page, subsequently catching their live show and signing them in 2006. Ramseur, who also steers the career of The Avett Brothers, helped the group book tours and release records to critical acclaim, including the Bombadil EP (2006); A Buzz, A Buzz (2008); and Tarpits and Canyonlands (2009). Just prior to the release of Tarpits and Canyonlands, Michalak was diagnosed with neural tension, and consequently Bombadil could not tour in support of the record. Bombadil took a hiatus, and after several years of therapy, Michalak was able to return. The band regrouped in North Carolina in 2013, releasing Metrics of Affection that same year and Hold On in 2015.
OXYMORRONS
OXYMORRONS
Oxymorrons began as a collaboration between Queens-bred brothers, K.I. and Deee, who joined forces to cultivate a sound that modern music can no longer turn its back on. After years spent playing and touring with other groups, the brothers decided it was time to set the New York scene ablaze with their sonic creations. The lineup expanded with the addition of staple drummer Matty Mayz, whose blistering talent along side bassist Joe Jordan and guitarist Adam November has become an intricate part of the bands live show. The genre-blending masterminds use their musical platform to speak for, and to, the rejected. Their message of embracing ones individuality resonates with their fellow underdogs.

The potent mixture of the band's sharp-witted lyrics and mesmerizing music has earned them a legion of loyal fans and inspired collaborations with Travie McCoy, Saba, Sam Gongol (Marian Hill), Maxine Ashley (Pharrell/I am OTHER) and Wynter Gordon. Oxymorrons caught attention with their undeniable artistry and found synergy in brand partnerships with RedBull, Converse, Rocawear, DeadBolt, Karmaloop, and Modify Watches. It's their captivating live show full of non-stop energy that has music lovers entranced. The band has played many notable festivals including SXSW, Firefly, AfroPunk, Funk Fest, CMJ on top of sharing the stage with dynamic acts like Lupe Fiasco, Common, Ludacris, Juicy J, Gym Class Heroes, Bruno Mars, Bad Rabbits, Rihanna, Salt N Pepa, Danny Brown, and more.

Oxymorrons are currently gearing up to release their new project, 'Complex But Basic,' in mid-2016 with indie label Tommy Boy Entertainment. They'll soon be unleashing an onslaught of ear-catching singles, imaginative music videos and taking their energetic live show on the road.

Argonautic
Argonautic
Argonautic came to fruition as an experimental basement party band going by their original alias “Aquatic Ape Theory.” After countless events and lineup changes they have found their way out of the water and have set sail under a new name, Argonautic. They only have one clear goal and that is to take their electrifying presence and crunchy slam band sound to the masses. So, jump on ship or get out of the way because there is nothing stopping this ship of miscreants from raiding your shores, and taking your ears for a ride they’ll never forget

They have won Gorilla's Battle of the Bands competition at World Café Live in Philadelphia and just released their first EP!
18th & Addison
18th & Addison
Reborn from the ashes of two of New Jersey’s most promising bands, 18th & Addison are a culmination of a diverse set of musical ideas ranging from indie pop, punk and melodic rock.
From Toms River, NJ, 18th & Addison formed in November of 2013 as an acoustic duo featuring Tom Kunzman and Kait DiBenedetto. Kunzman was formerly in the punk band A Criminal Risk and DiBenedetto was one of MTV’s first recording artists with her band Just Kait (she is also the guitarist in the band What’s Eating Gilbert, the side project of Chad Gilbert of seminal pop/punk band New Found Glory).
The duo met through playing local shows at a youth center. Realizing over time how much they have in common, they started hanging out more and writing songs during their downtime. After the dissolution of their respective bands, the transition was seamless and inevitable.
“The goal for us has always been to push this music in a direction that neither one of us had ever attempted” states DiBenedetto. “Since we're both from two totally opposite ends of the musical spectrum, especially in our town's music scene, that has come pretty easily to us. We now play live with a full band and the songs have all taken on a new life. We love what we do, and we write from the heart first and foremost which really helps us put out music that we're extremely proud of and anxious to release for others to hear.”
18th & Addison will be releasing their debut EP “Little Parasites” on January 20th 2015. The EP consists of 7 songs of upbeat, heart-felt, emotionally charged alt/rock. “The both of us feel really, really good about this being our first release together” says Kunzman. “'Little Parasites’ is pretty much a culmination of everything we've learned in our past with our old bands, and a lot of self realization outside of music. It's probably really corny to call it "honest" but that's exactly what it is. We're always learning about ourselves, the world we live in, and life in general and this EP captures where we are, and who we are as people at this time and it's exactly how we want it. I definitely speak for the both of us when I say we haven't been more excited or proud of anything in our entire lives.”
OhBree
OhBree
Described as "Delightfully disturbing", OhBree's 6-9 members bring on a loud and fast performance of dark, poppy, pit-orchestra-punk.
OhBree released their first album, We Miss You Edward, Come Home, in 2012 - The album follows the stories of many different characters, most notably the valiant knight and tremendous lover, Edward, but also dying murderers and men's choir members who joke about hot drinks and divorce.
In 2014 the band released their second album, Death By Broomstick. This album is a darker look into the OhBree sound, gathering influence from bands like Man Man, books like A Clockwork Orange, and comedic troupes like Monty-Python.
Currently the band is playing up and down the east coast, while also finding time to work in the studio. They're sorting through dozens of demos this winter, so stay tuned for new music!
Skinny Dip
Skinny Dip
Skinny Dip is a band from Philadelphia, PA composed of Stephen Vanyo, Ian Painton, Derrick Dieso, and Alex Martin. When the band came together in 2014, they were unsure of a name until Steve and some friends decided to go skinny-dipping one night. With his middle school crush in attendance, it made for an interesting night. Once a waitress at a diner in Allentown confirmed the name for them, Skinny Dip decided that they were going to begin playing as many shows as they possibly could, and they have not stopped yet.
When Skinny Dip sits down to write, they still remember what they learned while they were in jazz band together in high school. Alex, Stephen, and Ian became close friends during this time, which lead to them playing in a jazz quartet for two months as well. While Derrick was more into athletics, the four of them still shared a similar taste in music. With all four of them off at different colleges now, playing together in Skinny Dip has allowed their friendship to remain just as strong.
Since the recent recording of their new 5-Track EP which aims to blend the sounds of emo, grunge, shoegaze, and hardcore, they have strived to create a sound reminiscent of the bands Sunny Day Real Estate, Jawbreaker, and Title Fight.
Twin Coves
Twin Coves
Hailing from the badlands of New Jersey, lifelong friends, Twin Coves are busting down doors since their debut EP premiered last fall, 'Tired Of Trying' started off simply as a recording project in the depths of Little Eden, Asbury Park, with The Bouncing Souls, Pete Steinkopf. Tired Of Trying can be compared to a day at the Jersey Shore, with a "nostalgic for youth" vibe that it presents. Later on, Twin Coves would find themselves as a full functioning band who are ready for anything.

The band's latest album, Tight Spaces, presents a faster and harder punch along with straightforward guitar work to concoct a solid record that represents that east coast-anthem-punk rock sound.

With standout tracks like Thin Ice & Home Made Happiness, the music of Twin Coves appeals to punk rock fans and pop music fans alike.
