Event Details

Keep Flying is a pop punk rock band from the Northeast. The band mixes styles of the new breed of pop punk acts while incorperating horn driven melodies. The band has been touring on their debut EP "Follow Your Nightmares" since the summer of 2016 and recently released they're second EP, "Walkabout". You can find out more about the band at

Light years - Pop-punk may be a young person's game most of the time, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for growth – or for grown-ups. Light Years are here to prove that. The band have graduated from the teenage angst that fuels most of their peers, instead turning their focus to the problems that face them in their mid-20s. I Won’t Hold This Against You, their 2013 debut LP released via Paper + Plastick Records, dwelled on the inescapable past while looking for ways to heal the scars incurred while coming of age. Now working with Animal Style Records, Light Years will release a new five-song EP titled Temporary. The EP, recorded with Will Yip, is a quick, 16-minute blast of blisteringly paced punk-rock showcasing the band sinking their teeth into evolving musicianship and offering up a meaty effort full of hooky choruses, full-bodied guitars and a pounding rhythm section. Temporary is bound to please fans of blink-182, Fenix TX and New Found Glory who are looking for a new undertaking to completely submerge themselves into, rather than a quick listen to forget about later.

Acadia - "Portland, ME quintet Acadia are unique and passionate in all the right ways."

Acadia are poised for a break out. With the success of their EP titled "InFocus" recorded at The Halo Studios with Producer/Engineer Kevin Billingslea, mastered by Grammy award winner Adam Ayan at Gateway Mastering. They took to the regional circuit playing shows opening for bands such as such as Silverstein, Four Year Strong (Ten Year Rise or Die Trying sold out Boston show), Like Pacific, Broadside, Boston Manor, Rarity, Can't Swim and many more.

Acadia released their latest single "Dryspell" which was featured on the Huffington post and picked up by Alt Press "13 songs you need to hear this week." Be on the look out for more new material from Acadia very soon!

Real Talk - Formed in late 2013, New England's Real Talk wasted no time releasing their debut EP "Maps & Miles" and heavily touring the US. "Maps & Miles," recorded with Chris Curran at Apparition Sound (Four Year Strong, A Loss For Words, Pvris) showcased the bands Drive-Thru era roots while focusing on the time period between adolescence and adulthood. The 6 track EP was written while both touring and apart at colleges across the US and Canada.

In August of 2015 after numerous tours with acts such as Sleep On It, Grayscale and The Lost Boys, the band took a backseat as members graduated school and transitioned into yet another time period in their lives. In Winter of 2016 the band began writing and demoing again as members came to realize what they were missing. Real Talk has spent 2017 rebuilding, writing, and recording EP2 with Seth Henderson (Knuckle Puck, Real Friends). Stay tuned as the future looks bright for Real Talk.
