Bottled Up is a Rock and Roll quartet from DC. Growing its roots from surf, new-wave, 70's rock, and punk ethos.

"On their self-titled tape, D.C. five-piece Bottled Up offer surf and psychedelic garage rock through a post-punk filter, with drolly delivered lyrical references to PCP and LSD. While the detached vocals sound far away on “Higher,” the speedy three-chord instrumentation evokes a Nuggets outtake. Their tune “Binary Worm” sounds like an audition for a beach party film with its blend of fuzztone guitar and organ rhythms." - Washington City Paper

The Smirks


The Smirks are a femme lo-fi garage punk band out of Richmond, VA looking to make your night sweaty and above all else, memorable. They know how to manipulate chaos into controlled, hormonal tunes reminiscene of Ty Segall, Blondie, The Runaways, and Thee Oh Sees. They'll give you raspy vocals and dynamic guitar riffs, nostalgic of past rrriot girls represented in the music scene.

"If you like your punk with large helpings of lo-fi garage shredding and sneer angst, the trio is sure to be your new favorite in Richmond. In her weekly show preview, Drew Necci said it best: 'if you're not into the band, you have no soul, so have fun with that or whatever'" - Dust Up Mag



Loud, snotty, catchy, melodious, dark lyrics, excessive volume/distortion, raw nerves, adolescent humor.

"True to punk roots, it was loud, invigorating, and their set list seemed like it covered 40 songs in 20 minutes. Great music for a great cause." - Washington City Paper
