Uglyography / Bio

Uglyography is a Hampton Roads VA based trio that plays quirkadelic rock music. Quirkadelic rock is a new genre that was actually coined by Uglyography and describes the eclectic sounds and influences that the band projects. Borrowing from They Might Be Giants, The Pixies, Ween, early East Bay pop-punk, and countless others, the songwriting style of band leader Matt Thomas is undeniably unique, catchy, and thought-provoking. More importantly, the energy and fun that the band has on stage trickles down into the audience. Happiness ensues.

Uglyography was named Best Local Band 2012 by Virginia Living Magazine and received three nominations at the Veer Local Music Awards in February 2012 for Best Band, Best Album (2011’s Undercover New Machine), and Best Video (My Brain). They have also been named Defenstration WHRV’s Band of the Month and have been broadcast regularly over the airwaves on 96x’s Local Music Show and WHRV’s Out of the Box, including a live radio performance. Television appearances include WAVY 10’s Hampton Roads Show, Cox Channel 11’s Sound Check, and Johnson City Tennessee’s Tha Soundboxx. The band also makes regular appearances on the music podcast YourMusicShow and has been written up on several occasions by newspaper publications The Daily Press, The Virginian Pilot, Veer Magazine, Pulse, and many others both in print and across the world wide web.

Three full-length albums and a brand new EP have been released by Uglyography. The trio stays very busy between touring, performing at festivals and conventions, recording, creating original music videos, regular local performances, and trying to adjust to 21st Century living. They are one of the hardest working and most captivating bands in the 757 and their enthusiasm and passion is reflected in their ever-growing ardent fanbase.
