Gibbous Moon
Gibbous Moon
This Philadelphia three-piece formed in October 2016, and has been making heads dizzy with their brand of heavy psychedelic rock mayhem ever since. Guitarist Mauro Felipe brings a swirling thickness and depth while soaring out into the stratosphere and back, while wildman drummer Michael Mosley and thundercat bassist/vocalist Noelle Felipe pound, growl, and howl you into another state of mind. All three bring experience from too many outfits to count – veterans of rock, punk, heavy doom, and a few unidentified flavors in between – making for a lively-jively-cosmic soup! Take your protein pills and put your helmets on – we’re goin’ for a ride!
Okay, seriously though. That’s all perfectly fine. But here’s the story. Moe & Noelle were putting together little pieces of things in their kitchen, in their bedroom, for a couple of years probably. Bit by bit forming them into songs, and then they decided, “Hey, let’s do this.” And along came Michael. Ka-POW. And here we are.
The Gala
"In March of 2016, Boston's bombastic garage rock n' roll band The Gala appeared seemingly out of nowhere. Accompanied by the premiere of the single "November" on Boston Emissions with Anngelle Wood (100.7 WZLX), they made their debut on air at 91.5 WMFO and announced a number of dates to follow. Quickly concocting an incredibly powerful and dynamic set of material that is relentlessly frenetic, audacious and charismatic, managing to stay unflinchingly cool while belting out a blur of caustic sincerity. Releasing their single on 7" vinyl and for download through Dead Beat Records and Hi Fi Hepcat Press. They have managed to build a hype for themselves with a year packed full of fun-loving, energetic, fuzz-drenched shows in support of their single and it's video.

They kicked off 2017 with the release of their frenzied sermon of rock n' roll titled the Pucker Up EP on cassette through Hi Fi Hepcat Press and accompanying 7" single "Touch Me" through Dead Beat Records. Receiving stellar reviews and airplay from a myriad of sources throughout North America, UK and EU via Classic Rock Magazine, The Rodney Bingenheimer Show in Little Stevie's Underground Garage, 50thirdand3rd, Maximum Rocknroll, Boston Groupie News, The Rodent Hour on Radio Free Brooklyn, Turn Up The Volume! (Belgium), Trash Can Radio, Out of the Basement!, WAAF, WEMF, WZLX, Heavy Leather Topless Dance Party, Sleazegrinder Supershow, Divide and Conquer, Audio Ammunition, CAFFEINZINE, Total Goon, KPISS, Boston Hassle, Vanyaland, VanyaRadio, etc."
