    After three critically acclaimed solo records, dozens of world tours and TV appearances, Jesse Malin found himself back in New York City questioning his next move. From his days fronting seminal hardcore trio Heart Attack and infamous glam punks D Generation, then seven years on the road as a solo artist, Malin had cultivated a devout fan base. He'd shared stages with everyone from The White Stripes to Counting Crows, The Hold Steady to Lucinda Williams, but felt like he was losing the plot. Malin contemplated going back to school, becoming a standup comedian or a Las Vegas wedding DJ, and even started work on a documentary film about DC hardcore Rastafarians The Bad Brains. For over a year he didn't play or record. When asked by a Hollywood screenwriter to pen songs for a film about author J.D. Salinger, Malin - a fan of Catcher in the Rye and other Salinger works - traveled to Cornish, NH hoping to speak to the famous recluse. In typical punk-rock fashion, instead of getting the interview, Malin landed at the local precinct for trespassing and was released only after the cops watched his video duet with Bruce Springsteen for "Broken Radio" on YouTube and were convinced he was just a writer doing research. Though he never met Salinger (who passed away this past January), Malin made the most of the experience by writing "The Archer" and "Lonely at Heart"-two songs that would make him want to work again and become the basis for his new album. Over the summer of 2009, in the basement of Avenue A watering hole Hi-Fi, the songs came forth. Malin, with impresario Don DiLego, drummer Randy Schrager, guitarist Matt Hogan, and bassist/DJ Tommy USA, worked with his newly formed band to bash out an album's worth of gritty anthems, and The St. Marks Social was born. A solid band, but one with an open door to Malin's community of musician friends - longtime partner in crime Ryan Adams, pop singer Mandy Moore, fellow label mate Brian Fallon, and former bandmates from D Generation Howie Pyro and Danny Sage - the Social is a group effort to keep the P.M.A. Says Malin, "To me, rock ‘n' roll is an exorcism that begins every night when the sun goes down, the music starts playing, and the spirits start flowing. It helps to say things in public over dirty microphones. It's a way to spit out the poison." When Jesse met producer Ted Hutt (Lucero, Flogging Molly, The Gaslight Anthem) one drunken night at a local bar, their talk of making a record fast, loose, and raw, was the beginning of Hutt's quest to create a record that would encompass Malin's roots and evolution-from hardcore thrasher to punk/folk singer-songwriter. The album's basic tracks were laid in three days at Greenpoint, Brooklyn's Mission Studios, and the rest at Sonic Youth's Think Tank Studios in Hoboken, NJ. Filled with the characters Malin does best-messengers and misanthropes, hipsters and hypocrites-and as always, his constant themes of redemption, nightlife, heartbreak, and survival, LOVE IT TO LIFE-a sentiment taken from a ticket stub Joe Strummer autographed for Jesse-was built with desperate optimism that shouts in gang vocals that no matter how bad it gets, you're never alone. http://www.jessemalin.com/ http://www.myspace.com/jessemalin http://www.facebook.com/jessemalin http://www.myspace.com/joshabtandtheregulars Since 2007 American Babies has been the mouthpiece for Philadelphia based musician Tom Hamilton. After spending the early 2000s building a national fan base fronting the electro-rock band Brothers Past, releasing two critically acclaimed albums and averaging 150 shows a year, a change was in order. Hamilton looked to shed the electronic "bleeps-n-boops" production that had become his calling card and make an album that was loose, rolling and full of vibe. Hamilton has hit the road with American Babies either playing solo shows or with a rotating cast of players that included Joe Russo (Furthur, Benevento/Russo Duo, brother Jim Hamilton, Scott Metzger (Gene Ween Band), Dave Driewitz (WEEN), and Ryan Thornton (Sean Bones) landing showcases on Festivals like Bonnaroo and CMJ (2007), Langerado, SxSW and Newport Folk (2008) as well as supporting slots for the Derek Trucks Band, Sheryl Crow, The National, and the Wood Brothers The "Weight of the World" EP was released by Shoots and Boots in April of 2010 and the full length LP "Flawed Logic" is ready to follow. http://www.myspace.com/tomhamiltonsamericanbabies

    The Blackjacks are a Washington, D.C. based band that combines the blues of the grittier British invasion bands and blues punk of the late seventies with heavy danceable grooves. The band quickly gained notoriety around the entire metropolitan area for their high-energy live shows that showcase their song craft and musicianship. Most notably are the dual guitar of Anthony Fiacco and Buddy Speir. Inspired by everything from The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin to Queens of the Stonage, White Stripes, and Wolfmother; Fiacco became widely known in Washington DC for his songwriting. Sharing musical inspiration and a passion for serious rock n’ roll make Fiacco and guitarist/songwriter/arranger Speir a natural team. Speir is undoubtedly acknowledged as THE rock n’ roll guitarist in the Washington, D.C. area. “He’s completely absorbed Jimmy Page and created his own unique style with it,” adds Fiacco. In 2007, the two set out to make a record worthy of their idols, fresh for the new Millennium. They achieved this with their debut album “Midnight On the Floor” released in 2009. Fiacco and Speir were determined to make and album with as close to a live feel as possible. http://www.myspace.com/blackjacksmusic http://www.facebook.com/wewerekings http://www.myspace.com/joshabtandtheregulars
