About We Are Star Children: We Are Star Children is a 6-piece "adventure pop" band from Charlottesville, VA. They veer in and out of conventional rock/pop arrangement: horn and synth cascade over a surging rhythm section, brazen enough to share lead with the advancing wall of rich harmony vocals. In their recordings and live shows alike, they continually dance with beauty and mayhem, occasionally spinning into a contemplative waltz or tip-toeing down an eerie alley, but ultimately whipping the crowd into a full froth. They frequent debaucherous fundraisers, host homegrown shows in bookstores, and bring down the house whenever they appear on stage.
About A University of Whales: A University of Whales is a piano-based chamber-pop group from Charlottesville, Virginia dreamt up by Nate Bolling (Astronomers, The Lone Rangers) with David Brear, Loryn Post, Erin Braswell, and Jess Martin.
