FFO: Red City Radio, Nothington, Iron Chic, Off With Their Heads, Banquets, Timeshares

They play GROEZROCK 2014!!
We are excited to have our friends from Elway at the Winston, their set at THE FEST this year was as good and explosive as OWTH, Nothington and RCR. So check these guys out and come build a Human Pyramid with us!

Red Scare Records (label of Masked Intruder, The Menzingers, Nothington, Teenage Bottlerocket, Cobra Skulls, The Copyrights, The Holy Mess) Elway do aggressive punk rock with soaring melodies coupled with lyrics ranging from that of the sad sap to the indignant atheist with a bevy of homespun dick jokes.

They released their debut album Delusions in 2011 and in 2013 they released Leavetaking which got 4 out of 5 stars from reviewer and users on dyingscene.com. They have toured with NOFX, Off With Their Heads, Masked Intruder, Teenage Bottlerocket, The Menzingers and many more.

*****Joe McMahon (singer of SMOKE OR FIRE)*****
JOE SOLO ACOUSTIC!!! He released a split with Brendan Kelley (The Lawrence Arms) in 2010 and in 2012 a split with Billy The Kid where they covered 31 songs in 30 days including Descendents, Billy Brag and ALL songs. Joe McMahon played a great FEST set this year solo and with Smoke Or Fire.

*****Sweet Empire*****
Long time Elway fans and friends Sweet Empire are a socially/politically involved melodic punk rock band from Holland. Bringing to mind bands like Descendents and Dag Nasty, among others.
