Hornography

Band Contact: Andy Pollock
Saturday, May 13 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Hornography is a brass-fueled pop/rock/dance/funk band based in Somerville, MA.

We perform original arrangements of an eclectic mix of music from the last four decades, including TV themes, film music, and top 40 hits.

Our curiously strong blend of trumpet, saxophone, trombone, melodica, bass guitar, and drums makes us a potent musical force. Kids love dancing to our music, and adults love basking in the glow of nostalgia that floats above us halo-like wherever we go. ​

Thrust Club & Friends

Band Contact: Erin Genett
Saturday, May 21 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Formed in 2012, Thrust Club is a garage dance party where everyone is invited — a kick-drum that lifts you out of your seat, crunchy guitar chords under a layer of keys that are sometimes smooth, sometimes ominous, and vocals that coo, scream, and everything in between.

Members are Sally Bunch (guitar), JC Climent (drums), Erin Genett (keys), and Bethany Leavey (vocals). All members volunteer at Girls Rock Campaign Boston, and believe in demonstrating and promoting girls and women to express themselves through music and other means.

Thrust Club will be joined by members of Leafcutter and Adam PC.
