Wess has been booking shows in Birmingham (un)professionally since 2006 and has been playing music locally in various capacities since 2005. He has a job and a mortgage and often laments how not punk-rock that is. During his free time Wess is usually watching Taxi Driver or digging graves in his basement.
(interested in booking: art shows, indie-pop, ambient, dream-pop, post-punk, experimental electronic, and avant-garde jazz)

David is a hip-hop head that has been getting more intimate with the broader spectrum of Birmingham music since 2013. Introduced to it all by performing with several different hip-hop groups, and under several aliases, he now seeks to see the diversity of Birmingham's music scene become the backbone for its growth across all genres.
