The Empty Bottle
BLOOMNATURAL VELVETMORMON TOASTERHEAD----------Hailing from Chicago, powerpop/rock 'n' roll/punk group BLOOM started by guitarist/vocalist Sam Larson after reading a poorly scribbled Pablo Naruda poem in a bathroom stall. She created the band as an eulogy for a lost love, an ever present damaged state of being. Filling out the sound she recruited founding member Joseph Montes on bass. Countless shows and an EP later, Alexander J Watson joined on drums and Yusuf Mohammed on lead guitar. BLOOM is always expanding, changing, and celebrating the power of love.4-piece dazed post-punk outfit from Baltimore, MD NATURAL VELVET is making serious haste to play here for the first time. Local favorites in the Baltimore party scene, these noise heads are bringing their brand of twisted post-punk across the country turning heads every chance they get.
