French Horn Rebellion is brothers Robert and David Perlick-Molinari, originally from Milwaukee, Wis., but now living in Brooklyn, New York. In 2007, the younger brother, Robert, was playing French horn in an orchestra but decided to make hot beats instead. After telling the conductor that Mahler isn’t fun anymore, he asked David, a bassoonist, to join him. Together, they formed French Horn Rebellion. Since then, they have travelled the world with French horns slung over their backs, playing with MGMT, Yelle, Cut Copy, and others. Their debut album, The Infinite Music of French Horn Rebellion, is now available.

Betty Who blends indie, pop, and dance music into an irresistible mix of bold soundscapes, Top 40 hooks, and knowing lyrics. Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, she played cello by age 4 and began writing her first pop songs in her early teens. Her voice is striking and memorable, and with her signature heels and spiked blonde hair, the 6-foot-2 Aussie can’t help but take you higher. After uploading just two songs, she hit 20,000 plays on Soundcloud, and the music video release for her single “Somebody Loves You” generated more than 6,000 views in two days. She has been praised by the largest music blog in Australia, Is It Bush Week...?, as well as by acclaimed pop music blogs Arjan Writes, SnapCacklePop, Pop On And On, Socialite Life, Electrocutie, and Electro Queer. She is now working with a handful of top-notch producers, primarily Peter Thomas (Hoodie Allen, Neon Hitch, Black Cards), in preparation for her highly anticipated debut EP, expected to be released this April. In the midst of all her success, she is a student at Berklee College of Music.

Evolfo Doofeht has been gypsyin' and funkin' so long that even their mamas thinks that their minds have gone. This group of demons from all over the United States has formed to provide shows on the road and music of American funk and gypsy influence. Thus, they've coined the term "gypsy-funk." Formed in 2009 by Berklee student Matt Gibbs, Evolfo Doofeht has spent the last three years honing its party sound and performance. The Evolfo boys perform in New York, Boston, and at colleges in the greater Northeast, sometimes venturing out for shows on the Golden Coast. At long last, in September 2012, Evolfo Doofeht independently released its first EP of original music, The Food of Love. Shortly after the release, these lost boys got some love from their current hometown of Boston when received the award for International Artist of the Year at 2012’s Boston Music Awards Ceremony.
