COMPANY CALLS + MENAGE A GARAGE + VENRAY
Doors at 7:30 | Show at 8
Company Calls has been a D.C. based band since 2012 when Nat (Vocalist/Bassist), and Krys (Guitarist) met one fated night at a show. Since then they’ve been making poppy punk-loving tunes that highlight conflict between uncertainties and desire. Tito Sanchez joined in on drums in 2015, rounding out the band’s sound. Company Calls has supported many artists to include Nina Díaz with Black Heart Records, In The Whale, The Kominas, Hunter Valentine, Sick of Sarah, Carla Morrison and Honey Blood in iconic DC venues like the Howard Theatre, Black Cat, DC9, Rock and Roll Hotel, and some outside of the DMV to include Philadelphia and North Carolina.

Ménage À Garage (MÀG) is a pop punk, power trio from Washington, DC. MÀG is known for “crushing venues across the region with their heavy, yet simple, melodic rock beckoning a return to the music of previous decades.” (Dominion Collective) MÀG’s 2016 submission to NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest was selected by WAMU’s Bandwidth as one of DC’s “top 10” submissions.
MÀG performs cathartic rock, known for its affecting melodies, heartfelt lyrics, driving rhythms, and energetic shows. The song “You Get the Wiser” from MÀG’s second EP “Throw My Doubts on the Fire” is featured on the 2017’s Skunk Roundup compilation, “Bummer Summer”. In the summer of 2018, MÀG released its third EP “More Human Than You.”
MetroMusicScene described the single “Take It As It Comes”: “Jangly guitars and singsong vocals anoint this band as a spiritual successor of that Dischord post-punk sound, as well as the genre-defying rock of bands like The Weakerthans and Built To Spill.”
“They go beyond one label… there are elements of 60s British mod music, harmonized gang vocals, and fantastic start/stop breakdowns that reminded me of a certain local post-hardcore band that many people seem to enjoy.” (Punk News)
