The Bottom Dollars
The Bottom Dollars
The Bottom Dollars formed in the basement studios of Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn, NY in the spring of 2010 as a “punk soul project” by co-founders Brian “Cherch” Cherchiglia (vocals, guitar) and Evan “Buffalo” Berg (drums).
After bursting onto the scene with their breakthrough EP, “The Halcyon Days” in 2011, The Bottom Dollars made it their mission to become one of the most captivating bands in American rock and roll; winning over audiences and gaining accolades in NPR: All Things Considered, Daytrotter, Village Voice, Relix Magazine. No matter the publication, they were all in unanimous consent of The Bottom Dollars’ explosive and notoriously unpredictable live performances. And, with good reason; their “proudly-loud,” bizarre amalgamate of psychedelic rock, bowery-style punk and soul is something you can only get from the Dollars, only their way.
Dream Phases
Dream Phases is a Los Angeles-based outfit whose songs blend classic 60s/70s rock, country & soul with modern noise pop. Lead singer Brandon Graham started the band with a handful of home recordings he compiled in the short lulls between tours with The Relationship (Brian Bell of Weezer), The Blank Tapes, Nacosta, Korey Dane and others.

Dream Phases recently release their debut EP, Maybe Tomorrow, on Lolipop Records in March. Inspired by the works of Syd Barrett, Neil Young and Elliott Smith (among others), Maybe Tomorrow was recorded and produced by Graham along with Jason Quever and Joel Jerome.

In January the band hosted a weekly residency at Harvard & Stone, and in March toured the southwest on their way to Austin for official showcases at SXSW. To bring the music to life on stage, Graham hand-selected a posse of his favorite LA-based musicians – including his brother, Shane, on drums. This July/August, Dream Phases will embark on a national tour in support of Maybe Tomorrow.
