Chess Club (Memphis) | For Memphis power popsters Chess Club, it’s not as much about making the most of every day as it is every minute. Their music is incredibly addictive and hooky, solid power pop in the vein of Fountains of Wayne or Sloan. Says frontman Jason Barnett, "I’ve always thought of Chess Club as the weird guy in school who is handsome if you look past the out-of-date hairstyle and the Toughskin jeans. Very comfortable in his own skin yet pissed off that no one has asked him to prom."

Sunmotel | Drums blazing, bass kickin’, and guitars power chording their way to unexplored musical galaxies…. well maybe not quite, but Sunmotel rocks! At times dramatic, others pop, and most of the time just kickin’ some major rock ‘n’ roll ass, Sunmotel blends influences from Weezer, Foo Fighters, the Clash, and the Beatles, serving up an electrifying sound simply called "rock ‘n’ roll." Don’t box them up. It’s just gooood!!! Formed in St. Louis in 2006, Sunmotel (composed of drummer Donovan Fantastic, bass player LD Wiggles, guitarist Adam "The Master," and lead singer and guitarist T. Kowolski) is walking the line to wake up audiences of the world from their apathetic lifestyles. Wake up!
