The Smithereens: Biography:  Best known for writing and playing catchy 1960s-influenced power pop that inspired countless alternative rockers including Kurt Cobain, The Smithereens gained popularity wih “11” the album the spawned the hits  ”A Girl Like You”, “Blood and Roses” & “Blue Period”.   “2011”, their first album of new material in 12 years. Produced by Don Dixon (who helmed “Especially For You”, the group’s breakout debut), features 13 new tracks and finds the seminal New Jersey rockers picking up right where they left off: with irresistibly catchy hooks and rapturously fuzzed-out guitars.
Watts: Watts "make a superb retro rock ‘n’ roll racket," says Rob Forbes (Leicester Bangs). A dynamic four-piece aptly named for the gentleman drummer of the Rolling Stones, Watts' sound combines all the best elements of '70s glam, old school punk, new wave, British Invasion and straight up rock-n-roll to create a timeless amalgam that is at once familiar and fresh. The band was named one of the "Bands You Must Hear" by the UK's Classic Rock magazine in 2008 due to their previous record, "One Below The All Time Low." The newly released "On the Dial" carries on in the tradition of the "One Below..." record with a full set of rock-n-roll songs ripe for the radio. In the tradition of the Beatles and Kiss this record features all four Watts singing lead vocals.
The Rationales:

Residing in the overlap on the Venn Diagram between Alternative, Rock, Powerpop, and Americana, The Rationales bring to mind such acts as Wilco, Radiohead and Nada Surf, while always sounding entirely like themselves.

DREAM OF FIRE, the new EP from the Rationales, started with the solid songwriting the band is known for and added a sense of confidence and skill gained from playing live in support of The Distance In Between which allowed the new EP to recorded in a single 24 hour period in late 2013. The result captures the energy of the Rationales live performance and is the most dynamic recording the band has released to date.
