Formed at Berklee College of Music in February 2007, Rae Riot and the Smoke Animals is putting a fresh new spin on rock in New England. People of all kinds of musical tastes can enjoy their fun and easy-to-listen-to music. Their influences include Red Hot Chili Peppers, No Doubt, Pat Benatar, Patti Smith, Le Tigre, Pearl Jam, and Tom Petty.

The Thickness joined in 2005, seeking to entertain the masses with their version of punk rock comedy. The band met at Berklee College of Music in Boston and instantly knew that their love for the punk would ostracize them from their jazz-loving hippie constituents. Inking a deal with Sidehatch Entertainment in 2006 has propelled the band to new levels, allowing them to play all the great bars in New England and down the coast. They have released three EPs in under two years Girth Control, The Kids'll Love It, and most recently a self-titled. The band is touring constantly in support of the punk. With a triangle, lead bass, and stereo drums, the Thickness will add girth and length to any crowd lucky enough to envelope the band entirely into their, uh, ears.

Also appearing: Protean Collective.
