IAMDYNAMITE is the spirited, anthemic noise duo of Christopher Martin (guitar, vocals) and Chris Phillips (drums, vocals), two Michigan high school friends raised on the Seattle sound and 80s pop – anything with a beat that makes them move is an influence. Their name comes from Nietzsche: “I know my fate. One day there will be associated with my name the recollection of something frightful…I am not a man. I am dynamite.”
THE MISSING LETTERS
Rock n Roll has deep history in the Twin Cities. Many hallowed bands have emerged from the snow covered neighborhoods of Minneapolis and St Paul. Even the clubs have an honored tradition – No band climbs rock’s ramparts without a stop at First Avenue or The Fine Line. Maybe it has to do with the cold outside that keeps generation after generation of kids fostering the instinctual drive of alternative rock … What ever it is, the music continues to stay hot, and now, that heat embodies itself in THE MISSING LETTERS.

Edger is a rock ‘n’ roll trio from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Justin Lawson (guitar/vocals) sought out Nate Bartley (drums) in 2014 to form a two piece band while they took a break from other projects. Originally conceived as a post-punk/hardcore band along the lines of Shellac they quickly veered toward a more pop, hook driven sound. After a few performances they added Scott Hefte (bass) and soon began recording their debut EP rudiments with Mike Wisti at Albatross Studio in Minneapolis.
