Dollar Signs
Dollar Signs
Dollar Signs was an accident – a project that came from the unlikely collaboration of five anxious weirdos. This mecha-robot of sadness is ready to turn your living room into a dirty nightclub. To the untrained eye, Dollar Signs looks less like a band and more like five people who can help you fix your computer – but fret not – as they pack big guitars and even bigger hooks in their toolbox. Erik Button sings desperately for a break in this weary world, like a younger and drunker Tom Waits from the suburbs, whose intensity can only be matched and at times doubled by his faithful bass player and partner in crime, Dylan Wachman. The melodies are made possible by drummer Arion Chamberlain, boldly bashing his way through these desperate times. The band is rounded out with their master craftsman, Luke Gunn, known for playing every instrument known to humanity, even those that haven’t been discovered yet – and finally we can’t forget our hype monster on guitar, Tommy McPhail. Punk rock is not for the faint of heart, we know this, but what if we don’t care? Dollar Signs is the millennial-operated gig economy’s response to the forty hour work week; a hard-pass to the American Dream. The plane will crash someday, and when it does, we will be chugging all of the mini-bottles we can find.
Late Bloomer
Late Bloomer
On Late Bloomer's third full length, Waiting, the band have truly come into their own with an achingly human record that explores the crushing uncertainty of adulthood through a mix of hook-driven guitar rock and punk urgency. The album centers on ever-changing perspectives, with all three members contributing to the writing process to utilize their personal narratives, as well as points-of-view completely outside their own.

While much of Waiting’s core revolves around the anxiety and confusion of everyday life, sonically the album finds the Charlotte, NC-based band more confident and focused than ever. After honing their sound through their 2013 debut and 2014’s lauded Things Change, the band teamed with producer/engineer Justin Pizzoferreto (Dinosaur Jr, Pixies, Speedy Ortiz) on Waiting. The result effortlessly blends each members’ seemingly disparate influences into a dynamic sound that ranges from roaring to tender—often within the same track. The fuzzy familiarity of college rock effortlessly collides with the intensity of punk and hardcore, all serving to propel the band’s biggest choruses to date.

The band has shared the stage with Descendents, The Bronx, Waxahatchee, Swearin’, Spoon, Ceremony, Screaming Females, Torche, Pears, Iron Chic, Dirty Nil and so many others.
Ol' Sport
Ol' Sport
Ol’ Sport is a four piece, art school kid, diy band from Charlotte, NC. Led by the creative will to share a perception, the band has been cutting their teeth in clubs, bars, and basements along the east coast since their 2017 release, ‘Grass Stains’. With melodic shifts amidst their own brand of youthful energy, the rookie quartet demands the attention of the aimless twenty-something. Through trial and error, exhausted fade outs bring humble new beginnings.

Debut ep “Grass Stains” out now. Links https://www.facebook.com/olsportnc/ https://olsportnc.bandcamp.com
