The Cotones are a Boston, Massachusetts–based indie/alternative rock group. The band has played in and around the Boston area and up and down the East Coast. Influenced by artists such as Queens of the Stone Age, Father John Misty, Led Zeppelin, Royal Blood, and David Bowie, the Cotones strive to write genuine songs that express their worldview while being able to entertain and catch the attention of listeners. The band puts on an energetic, engaging, and diverse live show, with lyrics that span politics, mental health, love, hate, and the human condition. Although the band members try not to take themselves too seriously, they take their music very seriously. The band’s new anti-Trump single, “The Party’s Over,” is available on Spotify, Apple Music, and all other major platforms.

Lithic is just four guys with a love for big hooks, memorable riffs, and expensive overdrive pedals. They have found a home in Boston for their genre-bending sound, which has been described by fans as “alternative psychedelic grunge.” The band plans to move to Los Angeles once its members graduate from Berklee College of Music at the end of this semester. Lithic pushes the envelope, fuses genres, and hopes to open the minds of those who listen.

C9 is a Boston-based power trio formed in 2016. The band’s unique sound can be attributed to the diverse musical background of its members, who are inspired by everything from classic rock to big band jazz and funk. Its sound has been compared to artists such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jeff Beck, and Grand Funk Railroad. C9 has toured most of New England and the Tri-State area, and plans on playing more shows to promote the release of its anticipated EP. The band has two singles, “Reason 443” and “Tired Eye,” available on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, and all other major streaming platforms.
