Their eclectic sounds will at the same time tear your heart out and rock your world. Detailed information on the bands is below. Please join us on April 2nd at Evos Arts located at 98 Middle Street in Lowell, MA. Phone: 978-441-9906. Tickets are $5 at the door and it is 21+.

autumdivers- Built on the foundation of true emotional music: richly atmospheric, disarming in naked simplicity and soaring in the organic thresholds of the greatest indiepop. In performance and on record, the group explores a hybrid of textured, hypnotic pop and ambient rock. The Autumdivers are about to release their second album on California based OnlineRock Records. In addition, the band is currently featured along with Elbow, Air, Green Day, Starsailor, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Ani DiFranco on the Jan/Feb 2004 issue of CMJ’s New Music Monthly CD compilation.

grey star morning- Having sold out their CD release show earlier this year, Grey Star Morning is poised to make an indelible mark on the Boston music scene. At once delicate and jarring, textured and shimmering, stark and soaring, Grey Star Morning has crafted a cinematic sound that is uniquely its own. Their debut album, Heartwash Hotel fuses varied British and American influences, combining healthy pop hooks and sensibilities with a distinctive but accessible indie mentality. On stage, Grey Star Morning takes these themes and sounds to exciting heights that are not to be missed.

prettytheboat- The band has developed their amorphous style to become one of the most exciting bands to hit the Boston music scene. Their penetrating lyrics and effect-driven technique span genres. Vanessa Wheeler and Rich Pena fuse their ethereal voices and labyrinthine guitars with bassist Chris Mcdonnell's mercurial undertone and drummer Dave Greenbaum's intuitive rhythm. Their song, "early morning genius" was played on WBCN.
