Seán Barna is a musician living in Brooklyn, NY. Pictures of an Exhibitionist is the debut LP of Seán Barna. The songs, written in the mornings about the nights, are aggressive explorations the underbelly of the emotional and physical connections between lovers and strangers. They lay bare questions of greatness and deconstruct the meaning of beauty with a point of view Bukowski might be proud of.

American Dinosaur Born in Philadelphia, Pa in August of 2013, American Dinosaur was founded on a love of songwriting and America. The basis of their formation shows in their music, as they are constantly trying to transform the sound of today’s popular music. Whether it is with their Blues/Rock guitar riffs, Hip-Hop influenced Drumming, or the Mellow Yellow bass lines, American Dinosaur is sure to have you tapping your feet. Woven together by sweet harmonies and even sweeter hooks, these 4 Soul Surfers won’t rest until the citizens of Earth know the wonders of American Dinosaur.

Manatree formed around 2009 when four longtime friends were entering high school. Drawing from early pop and rock influnces like the Strokes and Wolf Parade, mathy bands like Maps and Atlases, and the exploratory qualities of Wilco and Broken Social Scene, Manatree wrote high energy, math-influenced pop songs with a simple lineup of two guitars, bass and drums. These efforts culminated in the band’s self After Manatree’s self-titled release, the band became gradually more interested in electronic music, everything from pop-oriented artists like Sylvan Esso and Frank Ocean to the more experimental Actress and Oneohtrix Point Never. While keeping true to their guitars-bass-drums lineup and simple live performances, the band is now beginning to incorporate elements of this music into their vocals, compositions and instrumentation. Manatree hopes to blend these influences for a unique and personal release next year, which they are currently beginning to record. The band also plans to tour consistently both before and after this release.

VA Blackberry- A Belgian wheat beer brewed with a touch of rye and a massive addition (over 1,000 lbs. per 40-barrel batch) of plump, ripe blackberries grown by Agriberry in Hanover County, Hardywood Virginia Blackberry offers an assertive fruit character while remaining extremely refreshing. Ruby hued with the bright aroma of fresh bramble berries, this beer’s pleasantly gentle body leads to a rather dry, rounded fruit finish, making it irresistible on a hot summer day.
