S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D: Sociopathic Time Altering Robot Warrior Of Organic Design
Sent back in time from Planet Vitrus moments before the planet's destruction in the year 2776 A.D, Gabriel Starwood was created to alter the time continuum in an attempt to control the ever expanding Human Race: intergalactic cosmos devourers and the eventual destroyers of Vitrus.  As an advanced cyborg capable of entering and controlling the human body via nanotechnology, Gabriel has inhabited historically influential Earthlings since the dawn of man, from Jesus Christ and Joan of Arc to Angela Davis and The Marquis De Sade.
Accompanied by a small, yet crucial team of Vitruvian Androids, the Propaganda Performance module of the S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D. mission has taken form as a "Cyber Rock" quintet.  Raising the awareness of mankind for the sake of the cosmos, a typical S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D. performance centers on the values of the Vitruvian species, their eventual destruction at the hands of the expansionist hordes, and the S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D. prototype's mass manipulation of the Human race.
The quintet is comprised of a classical pianist, an effected bass guitar, an analog synthesizer, looped and effected vocals, and drums.  Theatrical in presentation, primal in execution, and psychedelic in nature, the resulting sound is comparable to that of a woolly mammoth being downed by laser-spears, falling face first into a pagan orgy.
King Jong Ill
Kim Jong Ill is a Philly-area Electro Rock/Hip-Hop act with a sense of humor. In purple and yellow outfits, they blast poppy, gritty, and sometimes experimental music at the audience with a force and enthusiasm that's hard to ignore. Armed with vocal effects and a myriad of sounds, they create songs that are easy to enjoy, but difficult to classify.
Revolution, I Love You
Revolution, I Love You
Revolution, I Love You makes Lo-fi Electro Rock, gritty rock n' roll with a backbone of drum machines, synthesizers, and subwoofer-pushing bass. The band has toured the US east coast with German rock band Pandora's Bliss and has shared the stage with Berlin, Brick + Mortar, and Quiet Company. RILY's music video for "The Atlantic Ocean" was viewed more than 25,000 times since it's release in February 2014, they won Indie Electronic/Dance Band of the Year at the 2013 Tri State Indie Music Awards, and MusicUnderFire named RILY's single, "Cotton Shirts," one of their Top 100 Tracks of 2012.

Revolution, I Love You culls elements from across the pop spectrum, including gritty indie rock guitars, electronic beats, dramatic choruses, loops, and synthesizers, and uses them to strange and somewhat psychedelic effect. Katrina Murray of The Key (WXPN) says, "Crunchy synth work and loud guitar riffs are central to Revolution, I Love You's modern twist on classic rock 'n roll."

High school friends Rob Lindgren and Jason Reynolds formed Revolution, I Love You in 2008. They performed as a duo for years, each of them shifting from vocals to guitar to keyboard to a create a densely layered live sound. In 2014, the band welcomed Jeff Ormsby as their new drummer. The unconventional rock trio fuses live drums onto an already eclectic sound. Lindgren says, "This will free us up to try a lot of new things. Stranger things, I hope."
