You, You're Awesome w/ BUHU (Austin) You, You're Awesome website | bandcamp | facebookBUHUsoundcloud | facebookWelcome to the hyper, fantastical reality that is born out of summer love between 80s babies and online thrift store junkies. BUHUs works sit atop a limestone bedrock of war drums and queerious guitar melodies textured with the digital impatience of Ableton and the uneducated Gen Xers who operate it. Auto-tuned, transduced and otherwise manipulated vocal melodies scale over the barely cohering house/art-pop inspired dance grooves, yet you are still encouraged to take some acid and just "go off" on the person next to you. Meet BUHU at the Wal-Mart McDonalds around 3p.m. for more intel.
Johnny Stimson (NYC) http://buzzworthy.mtv.com/2013/06/05/johnny-stimtson-human-man-video/Afteran exciting arrival earlier this year with a viral video to accompany his debut single, "Human Man," beguiling new pop artist, Johnny Stimson, shows no signs of slowing down. Stimson has since unleashed two additional hits with "Daddy's Money" and "Here We Go Again." All three tracks rose organically to the Top 5 of The Hype Machine's highly respected Pop Chart and, after a personal hat tip on their socials, are proving that he is here to make "major waves" (Idolator) on the pop scene.In the past year alone, Stimson has been featured on GRAMMY.com, MTV Buzzworthy, Pop Justice, Nylon Magazine, and dozens of high profile blogs and web outlets. GRAMMY.com calls his songs "elegant," with the "theatrical yet sincere vulnerability of great pop." His music is "infectious" (MTV Buzzworthy), and "makes you want to groove out" (Baeble Music).Influenced by artists ranging from Prince to Justice, Stimson possesses a unique, stratospheric voice that captures the soul of a Motown favorite and the contemporary style and appeal of Daft Punk. Stimsons songwriting harnesses the cornerstones of hit records strong vocals, enticing melodies, and memorable hooks.Johnny's songs have been featured in national promotion during 2013 for ABC's new series "Trophy Wife," The CW's premiere of "The Vampire Diaries," and DIRECTV's signature first original series "Rogue." On the tour front, Stimson headlined DIRECTV & Aloft Hotels' "Road to Rogue" tour, a national Living Water tour across 17 college locations, and a Southeast US tour across 7 states.

Culture Queer with You, You're Awesome http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_ao_Zay_ok http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZrPzhkNKSM"Culture Queers adventurous, eccentric Pop experiments are a melding of hyper-catchy hooks delivered over the foursomes morphing backdrop of electronics and fluctuating forms of Rock music. Consisting of three filmmakers, Culture Queer performances (delivered everywhere from art galleries to corner bars) are A/V spectaculars, featuring video art accompaniment that can be mixed live. The band has released three brilliant albums, starting withSupersize It Under Pontius Pilatein 2004 and culminating with last yearsNightmare Band, which was nominated for Album of the Year at the 2012 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards." -Mike Breen (CityBeat)"Besides possessing one of the best band names ever, You, Youre Awesome is also one of Cincinnatis more endearing and entertaining original acts, both live and on record. The duo features drummer Kevin Bayers energetic and musical live drums and Yusef Quotah on keys and other electronic tools. Every song YYA plays is different, with Quotah coaxing a kaleidoscopic range of sounds out of his machines to create an aural collage that draws from various EDM sources, as well as other genres, video games and vintage analog synthesizers. The duo, which has found success with shows outside of the city (including dates at the Forecastle Festival and CMJs Music Marathon), has released several EPs and 2011s full-length debut,Good Point, Whoever Said That." -Mike Breen (CityBeat)
