Mr. Smalls Cafe

Phil Yates (Chicago): "If you enjoy three-minute pop songs loudly played, this is the album for you!" Through the years, Phil has shared the stage with The Mountain Goats, The Babies, The Dead Milkmen's Joe Jack Talcum, The Folk Implosion's John Davis, The Cave Singers, Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs, Anderson East, Franklin Bruno, Wckr Spgt, Ann Beretta, Mary Prankster, and The Push Stars. Phil has also shared a basket of chips and salsa with The Apples in Stereo’s Robert Schneider. Buy him a drink and he will gladly tell you that story!

Choice Words is a project from Zachary "Del" Weinberg, consisting of a catchy, three-chord nod to 1970s Elvis Costello power-pop and the hard-hitting 90s alternative rock of Superchunk and Superdrag.

Boy Wonders: Mixing noisy and dreamy dynamics with gentle twee melodies, Pittsburgh-based Boy Wonders explore sonic textures that tap into their longtime love of 80s and 90s indie pop - ranging from subgenres such as jangle pop, post-punk and shoegaze.
