Dog Park Dissidents
Dog Park Dissidents are a queer punk rock band from New Orleans, Long Island, and Philadelphia. Featuring Zac Xeper (he/they, lead vocals), Jon Greco (he/him, guitar), Joe Bove (he/him, bass), Zeke Xander (they/them, drums), and Skylar Stravinsky (she/they, guitar). They bend genres, genders, and decency, blending old-school anarchist punk energy with contemporary pop punk and flamboyant low camp. Also, they are dogs.
Since releasing their breakout viral single Queer as in Fuck You in 2017, Dog Park Dissidents has been gaying up the punk rock scene with their high-energy, high-chaos live shows, 3 whirlwind scream-along EP releases, and that one time they were almost going to play a show with Against Me! in March of 2020 but, you know, they had to cancel it for some reason, who knows why. Currently signed to Say-10 Records for a forthcoming rerelease of their catalog remixed and mastered by Reade Wolcott and Jack Shirley, the band is primed to explode and shove their deviant lifestyle in mainstream rock's face, frightening parents and causing widespread moral panic.

Trent Rush
Trent Rush is an LGBTQIA+ artist originating from Dallas, Texas. His debut record entitled "Thank You. Please. I Love You. I'm Sorry." combines rock and pop elements inspired by bands like The Strokes, The 1975, Coldplay, and many more. It's a combination of youthful energy and out-of-control rock with the engaging melodies and colors of modern pop. Lyrically, he exposes the hardships of growing up in a stifling environment that didn't accept creative and LGBTQIA+ people. But yet, highlights the beauty of becoming who you want to become, regardless of the constant pressure to adhere to the norm.
A soon-to-be queer icon amongst LGBTQIA+ artists. From fronting his band The Wild Frontiers to playing artistically driven solo shows, Trent Rush shows a fire on stage and in the studio that never dies. Burning his way through the industry through impeccable live performance, down-to-earth yet obscure songwriting, and a make it or break it attitude both in the studio and on the road.
