Care Bears on Fire & Jack Skuller
A fun all-ages matinee show at Maxwell’s – Sunday, June 13th from 2-4pm – only $5 admission!
Care Bears on Fire
Sophie (lead vocals, guitarist, 14 years old), Izzy (drummer, 14 years old) and Jena (Bass, 15 years old) are Care Bears On Fire.
Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, the young band have become favorites on the New York City club scene, winning over jaded hipsters of all ages with their authentic punk spirit and songs that capture the experience of being a kid with attitude and humor. The trio’s debut single “Everybody Else” delivers their message with a blast of ferocious energy. The 9th & 10th Graders have already been featured in Spin Magazine, which enthused: “This trio are old-school classicists dressed up in Chuck Taylors.” The band’s guitarist Sophie was also featured in Converse’s acclaimed “Three Chords” commercial, playing an acoustic version of “Everybody Else,” featured on their forthcoming album. Care Bears on Fire are punk meets garage, straight out of a Brooklyn basement. As the song chorus goes: “Nanananananana, I don’t want to be like everybody else!”
Teen rocker JACK SKULLER is equally passionate about the melodies of the Beatles and the energy of the Ramones. A song Jack wrote, the irresistibly catchy “Love Is A Drum” propelled him to first place in a 101.5 FM sponsored statewide talent show. Jack soon caught the ear of Bar/None Records owner Glenn Morrow while performing at the Hoboken Arts and Music Festival. “Love Is A Drum,” a timeless rockabilly anthem was produced by Daniel Rey (Ramones, Ronnie Spector) and features Nada Surf’s Ira Elliot on drums. Insistent and forceful, rock and roll begins again with rock’s new young heart.
