All This Huxley
All This Huxley
All This Huxley is a homegrown Philadelphia-based indie four-piece, which debuted in 2014, consisting of Trevor Serine (Guitar), John Corcoran (Guitar), Alex Marlys (Bass), and Josh Mayer (Percussion). Corcoran and Serine attended law school together, and when Corcoran introduced Serine to his childhood friends and longtime local musicians Marlys (formerly of Vintage Kicks) and Mayer (also Bass player of Kid Felix), All This Huxley was born.

Known for their thoughtful lyrics and diverse sound, they draw comparisons to Modest Mouse, The Districts, and old Wilco. The 2017 eponymous All This Huxley is a impressive breadth of music, from the insisting lead-driven tunes like "Joe the Volcano" and "Comrade Winston Smith" to the laid-back acoustic-folk inspired, "Two Feet in the Sand," several notable singles from their debut album, released in March, 2017.

Straddling the line between Rock, Americana, and Blues, the indie outfit has been picking up steam, including a recent 2018 appearance as one of the main acts of the 2018 Cape May Singer-Songwriter Festival. All This Huxley has performed at some of the most iconic venues within Philadelphia and the surrounding area, and has built a reputation for delivering rock-solid performances.

The band is back in the studio for their sophomore album at the state-of-the-art Gradwell House Recording Studio, although All This Huxley continues to tour, mostly within the tri-state area.
RETROGLYPHS is the 80s-inspired retro-wave project started by Frank Cervantes and Josh Dowiak. Inspired by some of their favorite 80s groups such as Tears for Fears and New Order, the duo is committed to making new original material that honors their own creativity while paying homage to their influences. In concert, the group plays as a full band with the help of multi-instrumentalists Joshua Holland and Matthew Wood.
Kid Felix
After forming in May 2011, Kid Felix quickly began to make themselves known within the Philadelphia music scene. They released their first EP November 2011 called 'Head Above Water', and with its success they gained international exposure as the Grand Prize regional finalists of the 2012 Hard Rock Rising Global Battle of the Bands, as well as playing both Bamboozle and the Warped Tour in the summer of 2012.

Kid Felix then went on to solidify there role in the music scene when they released their second EP, 'Young Luck' in October 2012. 'Young Luck' grabbed the attention of some very important figures in the music industry today, allowing them to play to huge crowds in venues such at the TLA, World Cafe, Susquehanna Bank Center, Electric Factory, House of Blues, Starland Ballroom and more. Now on the heels of their third release, 'Rivals', as well as a brand new music video for "I Am the River", Kid Felix finds themselves touring the East Coast, playing music festivals and growing their markets.

The rock band from Laurel Springs consists of Jake Falana (vocals), John Ambrutis (lead guitar), Brett Hagen (guitar), Julian Ungerer (bass), and John Szachewicz (drums), the band uses its unique structure to produce an indie style rock with modern melodies over carefully orchestrated and layered instrumentals.
