An extraordinarily good time at The Aquarium featuring:
Shortly after Jaybird Parkhurst (she/her) and Stefanie Vigoren (she/her) first met, they formed Termination Dust. Neither had really played electric guitar or had much touring experience, but they’d go on to learn together. Learning and growing is at the root of Termination Dust’s ethos; that, and to emulate Taking Back Sunday-style vocals “but in a sweet way,” Jaybird laughs. Recorded in Anchorage with a local producer and rhythm section, Termination Dust’s debut album Familiar Eyes was released in 2016, and not long after came an opportunity to open up for Modest Mouse. This caught the attention of Modest Mouse’s longtime label, Glacial Pace Recordings, and the small family that started with Jaybird and Steffi continued to grow and the band went on tour. Later, when now-drummer Matt Harris (he/him) reached out asking Termination Dust to go on tour with his band Granddad and realized they didn’t have a drummer for the tour, he offered to play with them and things just clicked from there.
Termination Dust confronts the stigma surrounding mental health by singing, yelling and sometimes screaming about their feelings.
Double Grave is a trio who most often play earnest, loud rock somewhere in the gloomy and poppy world of grunge, punk, and shoegaze. Forming in fall 2014, they have a slew of releases to their name, all live in Minneapolis, are best friends, and enjoy long breakfasts, hitting the road, relaxed attitudes, and pets.
