Helicopria is a four-piece prog rock band, influenced by groups like the Mars Volta, Björk, and Circa Survive. With members from all over the world, Helicopria's sound merges the best of a variety of influences to create something powerful and unyielding. With a mix of jaw-dropping technical musicality, catchy melodies, and a very personable and energetic live show, Helicopria is pushing boundaries and redefining the term "prog rock."

Meet Sounds of Venus, an alternative rock band breaking into the Boston music scene. Five Berklee musicians contribute lush male and female vocal harmonies, surging electric guitar, and a solid foundation of bass and dynamic percussion. With influences like Radiohead, Sigur Rós, Björk, and Bon Iver, their live performance cannot be missed. Their set varies from ambient soundscapes that make the crowd sway to sheer rocking energy and adrenaline. As supporters of art communities, they often welcome visual artists to display their work and incorporate their creativity with live performances.

Noize Tank is a Boston-based rock group formed in the spring of 2010 by students at Berklee. They continue to utilize new techniques for their music and are incorporating elements of grindcore, drum 'n' bass, and pop punk into their compositions.
