Stacked Like Pancakes
Stacked Like Pancakes
Brass-rock, ska from Towson, MD

Stacked Like Pancakes (SLP) is a boisterous Baltimore-based brass-rock band.

Beginning in 2007, Stacked Like Pancakes was founded on an idolization of artists like Reel Big Fish, Streetlight Manifesto, and Less Than Jake. Following the 2011 debut ska album We’re Not Insane, SLP and renaissance frontman-songwriter Kellen McKay began to develop an obsession with breaking genre boundaries. SLP has since proven to maintain a thick sonic texture through a synthesis of inspirations including Reel Big Fish, twenty one pilots, Foo Fighters, Paramore, Cage the Elephant, and an untraceable amount of other artists and genres.

Stacked Like Pancakes found their niche in music festivals in 2012, supporting Kid Cudi at Towson University’s Tigerfest. In 2014, SLP won the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands competition, earning their first appearance on the Vans Warped Tour. When they were invited to return in 2015, the Warped Tour sparked a love for the road. In March 2017, Stacked Like Pancakes was a featured artist for the Vans Warped Tour, performing alongside Bless the Fall, Memphis May Fire, Jule Vera, and Microwave at the official Warped Tour Kickoff Party in Orlando, Florida. During this stretch of time, SLP embarked on several self-booked headlining tours, a national tour supporting ska-parallels Reel Big Fish, and in 2015 released their fan-funded sophomore album THIS IS US.

Concert venues and music patrons alike should be prepared for the stage to shake, the crowd to be wild and unpredictable, and the show to be a deliberate fusion of spontaneity and precision. The band’s trumpet and two trombonists won’t be standing in the back or blending in with the backdrop as mere support. In this self-proclaimed brass-rock band, the horns will steal the show, and the Pancake Nation community fanbase is hungry for their band to grow.

Stacked Like Pancakes epitomizes a tough DIY band despite a meaningless band name, and are rightfully on the rise to claim an international stage of their own.
City In The Clouds
City In The Clouds
Float-pop, alternative rock from Princeton NJ

City in the Clouds is a rock band based in Princeton, NJ. Their "float pop" style is the product of the colorful lead guitar work of Ean "Luke London" Steinberger, the tasty keyboard and trumpet arrangements of the handsome Marcus Grey, the grooves of wildcard bassist Ryan Chavez, and the sibling rivalry of Jackson and Brendan Marquardt (vocals/guitar and drums/backing vocals, respectively)– former members of the Florida punk band Bet Me I'm Lying, who worked with R.E.M. producer Mitch Easter, as well as The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.
