The Ugly Boys (Utah): A sexy, fun pop sensation, blossomed as an idea over boxed wine. It started as a dirty little secret that couldn’t be kept, quickly becoming a four-headed monster driven by funk and kissed by disco. Vibrant voices decorate the tender falsettos that sing of passion, pain, and pleasure. Hitting all the right buttons, Ugly Boys will leave you dancing with your heart in the clouds.
Butter: Aaron Schmidt, Thomas Shipley, and Jarrett Tracy of Portland, OR trio BUTTER carefully craft pop tunes that feature stories about love, loss, and sometimes just not being able to fit in. Syncopated guitar lines, modulated bass, and agile drums accompany impassioned and melodic vocals. Arrangements and tones are fine tuned to deliver songs that are downright infectious. After fine tuning their set in venues and house parties across their hometown and the west coast, BUTTER looks forward to bringing their upbeat brand of alt pop to many more stages to come.
