I Was Awake: I Was Awake is a progressive rock band from the Boston area, started when five friends from the North Shore collaborated in the spring of 2011 to create a new and eclectic sound. Consisting of members from well-known Massachusetts acts Autumn Above, Froggy & The Friendship, Rohirrim, Sleep at the Wheel and Fallow, they are no strangers to the Boston music scene. Elements of prog, metal, indie, and alternative shine through to create a unique blend of music with diverse appeal.
Tester: A grand fusion of epic hard rock and heavy metal, Tester from Framingham, MA promise turn the amps up to 11 and blow the roof off The Spot on Monday. If you like KISS, Iron Maiden, AC/DC and 80s arena rock acts like Loverboy, Autograph and Def Leppard then Tester is what you're looking for. You can check out their electrifying brand of rock & roll on their Facebook page right here for a sneak preview of what to expect.
Those Alone: Those Alone is an American alternative rock band from the New England area composed of Michael Giammarco on vocals and rhythm guitar, Mathew Sarcia on lead guitar, Mark Santandrea on drums, and Daniel Reinold on bass. Their songs have attracted many listeners from many different countries around the world and earned the band a loyal following in places like Brazil, Venezuela, Argentina, Greece, Germany and here in the US. These guys are playing this Monday and you can check out their bluesy alt-rock sound at their Facebook page here.
Lame Genie: Capping off the night with something truly special will be Providence video game rock band Lame Genie. What exactly is a video game rock band?
