For a label that isn’t even a year old yet, Subaquatic records was able to draw a large crowd to the Triple Rock Social Club this past Thursday. There was a line outside the door an hour before showtime, obviously drawing great interest to tonight’s lineup featuring Good Luck Finding Iris, Nomenclatures, The Everett Interpretation, and the headlining act Tony Peechka.
Good Luck Finding Iris was the first on stage, playing to an already packed house. Among their set was their debut single “Color Me” which is taking off on radio stations both locally and across the midwest. Their upbeat set matched the high energy of the room, and had people smiling both onstage and off.
Next on the bill was Nomenclatures, Playing a synth heavy electronic set with careful, dense sampling and instrumentation from Chris Murphy. Nomenclature’s set consisted of all new songs, and announced a debut release in August under the Subaquatic label.
The Everett Interpretation (Formally PTSTD) Took over the stage afterwards with their fun psychedelic tunes. Their songs were jam heavy with minimal lyrics, letting their Instruments, including a funky electric piano, guide the songs. Their record “Tangerine Screams“ will be out Later this summer.
Tony Peachka, an all woman punk quartet, had the room jumping and dancing around, ending the night with their loud and fast set including a screaming encore. If you missed them live, you can find them at The Cabooze June 9th.
Subaquatic Records has amassed a great collection of artists under their label, and although still relatively obscure, they managed to keep the merch table busy throughout the night selling t-shirts and stickers, collecting pre-orders for the band’s latest releases, and even giving away a compilation cassette to some of the first few people through the door.
