Mint Trip release new single "Pay to Play," play the Hi-Hat on 8/25

Amy Gionfriddo, the bombshell lead singer of Mint Trip, is joined by the talents of Brian Gross (bass) and Max Molander (guitar) to produce an intriguing and retro take on the glam pop/indie rock genre. Expanding their musical talents into multiple genre categories has broadened their expertise and headlined their career paths, with Gionfriddo’s expansive lyrical and vocal techniques somniferous in the most sincere way. The trio's range of talent jumps from gospel ballads to synthesized 80’s pop, alongside subtle hints of laid-back rock and roll to keep audiences on their feet. They take a leap with their music, and it lands them wherever they very well please, and it is definitely worth the trip. 

Catch Mint Trip with Keira Moran at Brewyard Beer Company on August 25, or at The Hi-Hat on November 15th. Kayla Hay


Pure Bathing Culture at the Doug Fir

Pure Bathing Culture, composed of Vetiver’s Sarah Versprille and Daniel Hindman, is playing a show this Saturday at the Doug Fir. The duo has most recently teamed up with Turntable Records to cover The Blue Nile’s album Hats, an homage that has been quite a few years in the making. In fact, Pure Bathing Culture was first introduced to The Blue Nile while recording their first ep. According to Versprille, they were both “immediately obsessed with their world of nostalgia and longing.” Pure Bathing Culture does the album immense justice. Their voices blend into a deep, romantic harmony, and they bring a new element of wistfulness to the album's dreamy nature . 

Pure Bathing Culture will be at the Doug Fir Lounge this Saturday, August 25th, along with King Who and Kasey Johansing
