A Shrewdness of Apes

FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | SPOTIFY | BANDCAMP

A Shrewdness of Apes started as an acoustic duo with Ian Mabley and Dave Greek in Richmond, VA in 2013. After the addition of a drummer and a few rotations of lineups, they developed into a progressive rock trio, influenced by Queens of the Stone Age, Tool, Yes, and Alice in Chains.

As the remaining original member, Ian Mabley moved to DC in 2014 and continued the project with new members Sumeet Mahal and Jared Coffin. It is with this lineup that they recorded the band's first full-length album, which was later released in 2019. With the current lineup of Chris Sciotto and J.R. Franks, the band made it to the finals for best hard rock song, album, and artist of the D.C. area's 2020 Wammie Awards. They made it to the finals again in 2021 for Best Hard Rock Artist.

Whether it's acoustic riffs, dizzying time signatures, or monolithic electric guitar solos, expect the musically unexpected with A Shrewdness of Apes.

Teen Mortgage

FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | SPOTIFY | BANDCAMP

In the short time that DC garage punk duo Teen Mortgage have been playing together, they have managed to earn a reputation as one of the city’s most vitalizing live acts. Armed with just a guitar and drums, the pair create a sonic blast that rivals the man power of the most ferocious four and five piece bands. That fervent on-stage energy has led them to tour the east coast and share bills with notable bands like The Chats, Bass Drum Of Death, Jeff The Brotherhood, Surf Curse, Big Business, Ron Gallo, Mike Krol, The Coathangers, Alex Lahey, etc. Teen Mortgage released their EP "Life/Death" on King Pizza Records in 2019. Since then WVAU named them best local artist, and the Musicianship awarded the group "best punk artist" and "best punk song" at DC music awards show, The Wammies.

“Teen Mortgage is one of the best bands in the DMV…They’re buy a t-shirt good. I bought a t-shirt. I bought their tape. I do not own a tape player.” - Brandon Wetherbee, Senior Editor of Brightest Young Things

"Combining the ferocity and intensity of Black Flag with the sludginess of the Melvins, Teen Mortgage’s powerful guitar riffs, hard-hitting vocals, and hammering percussion provide an all-out assault that ensures every song goes to eleven" - Boxcar Collective
" Straight to the point, no rules, and a modern collaboration of rock genres that give them a style and sound their own. " - Fashion Grunge
