Wishbone Zoe is Saera Kochanski, a conceptual multimedia artist from Northampton, MA. She has produced two full-length albums, a companion graphic libretto and two EPs. She has released self-produced animated music videos for Red Heat, Tundrastomper and Jamie Walker of Swinging Steaks.

The Leafies You Gave Me are a 10-piece avant-garde music and theater ensemble from Western MA, playing an eclectic array of genres from pop to free jazz to hardcore. Think high school drama club meets Frank Zappa.

The Countess Zaleska is a post-punk, multimedia musical act that has emerged from members of Boston/DC-based Daniel Ouellette and the Shobijin and Boston-based Anarchangel. They perform multilingual songs with a special melange of rhythm, rhyme and glamor and incorporate audience participation.

The Leafies You Gave Me
The Leafies You Gave Me
A 10 piece avant-garde music and theater ensemble/cult from the not-so-happy valley of Western, MA. An eclectic array of genres covering everything from pop to free jazz to hardcore. Stage shows have been referred to as “Broadway On Acid.” A series of interconnected stories create a unified experience dealing with topics such as organized religion, anxiety disorders, gender roles, castrati, and maybe even a little romance. Think high school drama club meets Mr. Bungle. Props, costumes, and THE GIANT CLAM! Everything is not going to be alright! But Leafies strive to make this world a better place for you and me to live. Join us in our fight against the Happy New Beard's club and help us bring down their senseless homophobia, intimidation, and ridiculous assumptions about gender! You might even get a leafy.......
