Ugly Purple Sweater is a indie-pop-folk group based in DC. Founded by Sam McCormally (vocals, guitar, & more) and Rachel Lord (vocals, banjo, melodica, & more) in 2008, the band now includes Will McKindley-Ward on electric guitar, Rishi Chakrabarty on bass, and Mike Tasevoli on drums. Ugly Purple Sweater mixes mesmerizing guitar and banjo (and a bunch of other instruments) with beautiful soaring vocal melodies and dulcet harmonies. Their songs often blend darkness with light, minor keys and longing juxtaposed with a bright beat and jubilant vocals. Singer Sam Cormally's clarion voice has a purity and depth at times reminiscent of Rufus Wainwright. Check out the video for their song "DC USA", the title track from their brand new EP. Listen on-line get in your car or take a bus, train or cab and come out for this show! You will be transported to a new plkanet with lots of great feelings, we promise!

Katie's Money is the latest musical collaboration from songwriters, Andy Hopper and Matthew Gunn Park. Equal parts Brooklyn and Silverlake, Park and Hopper find their influences amongst the pop sensibilities of Depeche Mode and The Cure, as the well as the garage mentality of The Replacements, Violent Femmes and Ween.
