PRISM BITCH (Albuquerque)

Prism Bitch is a hard rock band that beamed down in 2016 in the dust and wind of New Mexico. The group started as a four piece and asexually reproduced a fifth member in 2017, resulting in a 5 piece mix of heavy guitar/keyboard layers blended with pop hooks/melodies/harmonies and occasional total noise freakouts; often compared to The Pixies and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. In 2 years, Prism Bitch has gone from punk rock coffeehouse open mics to nominations in the Weekly Alibi’s "Best of Burque” 2017/2018 music awards (for Best New Band, Best Party Band, and Best Stage Presence). In the last year Prism Bitch has had the privilege of sharing the stage with Shonen Knife, Le Butcherettes, and Built To Spill. PB spent the end of November in the studio in LA with Toshi Kasai, known for his work with The Melvins, Foo Fighters and Dave Matthews Band. Prism Bitch has a reputation for wild and performative shows, professionalism and friendship.


Future Scars embodies the coexistence of the calm and calamity of waking life. Founded in 2015 by members of As In We, Future Scars is emotionally rooted in the contemplative, melodic atmosphere of post-rock and expands beyond a singular genre’s expectations, often times overflowing into the domain of sheer intensity and fervor. The group couples these drastically varied, yet complementary components with the recurrent flurries of heart-wrenching vocals, creating an aura of earnest exhilaration and beauty. Laced with technicality and the prowess of control, Future Scars construct a sound balanced in adversity, soothing and cathartic yet all the while anxious with anticipation.

Undergoing a line-up change in late 2017 in the midst of writing the group's debut full length and follow-up to their 2016 EP debut, Future Scars has grown into a foursome comprised of the group's original front-woman, Eliza Lutz, with Paul Wagner on bass, Marcus DiFilippo on drums and Dylan Blanchard on keys. Future Scars record their new album this spring to be release on Matron Records in fall 2018.

RUBEDO (Denver)

Rubedo is the physical manifestation of sound streaming from the psyche of its members. This is the alchemy of transgressive synth rock.


Steeped in the tradition and belief that rock and pop music can be both a means of entertainment as well as a form of art, multi-instrumentalist and Santa Fe-based musician Dylan Blanchard has worked extensively as a collaborator with that in mind. Now he decided he’s ready to step, both proverbially and literally, from the back of the stage where he’s more experienced and comfortable, up to the front.

With his ear sharpened for the many different ways songs can speak to their listeners and the possibilities for instrumentation and arrangement to transport a great song to the level of a moving and transformative listening experience, it felt like time to let his songwriting speak with its own voice. The new 7” record, “A Ghost in Arroyo Hondo (Just One of Many)” out on Matron Records this July, marks the first time since his years at the College of Santa Fe that Dylan went into the studio to create something entirely his own. The result is a taste of what will be more to come. Contrasting styles, timbres, and influences come together to make something at times both catchy and dissonant, energetic and dark, joyful and sad.
