Bar None, Killing Horse, and Little Dickman Records Lineups for the North Jersey Indie Rock Fest

After weeks of anticipation, here we are at the final lineups announcement for the Second Annual North Jersey Indie Rock Festival, which will be on September 23, at Cathedral Hall in Jersey City.  Fourteen bands have already been announced from Mint 400 Records and Sniffling Indie Kids.  As if that wasn’t enough, here are ten more bands from Bar None Records, Killing Horse Records, and Little Dickman Records.


The Cartwheelers Get Gnarly on Killing Horse Records

The Cartwheelers released their first EP, The Cartwheelers, last week on Killing Horse Records. Three songs. Two dudes. One question: Why aren’t you listening to it right now?

Kevin McSorely and Stefan Dias are like the surf-punk version of the White Stripes, but like, if instead of Meg on the drums, they had Animal from the Muppets.  Yeah, that friggin good. These two offer a surprisingly full sound for two people, and with music that’s eminently head-bangable, melodic enough to be danceable, and manic but controllable, I am 100% certain that sweat is flying and bodies are slamming at their live shows.
