Formed upon a chance pairing in class at Boston’s New England Conservatory, the four members of Lake Street Dive were assigned to form a group that played "free country" by the end of the class period; the teacher even provided them with the name Lake Street Dive. While the band members realized "free country" wasn't their strong suit, they also realized that there was an evident chemistry between them all and so they continued the band outside of class. After playing around with different musical styles, the band settled on a fusion between easy listening jazz and sweet indie pop. Since forming in 2006, Lake Street Dive has toured across the country and impressed audiences at every stop.

Pinback is a collaborative indie rock project between Rob Crow and Armistead Burwell Smith IV. The San Diego duo debuted in 1999 with its This Is a Pinback CD album, and caught the attention of Southern California audiences with its smart, concise songwriting. With a solid following in its home state, the band captured the respect of critics with the release of its 2001 record Blue Screen Life, which demonstrates the band's now trademark sound. Using tight, angular riffs, prominent bass, occasional hints of electronic production and layers upon layers of melody, Crow and Smith have honed an progressive indie/electronic sound. Pinback has released a slew of full-length albums and EPs, and continues to tour when Crow isn't busy with other projects, such as Goblin Cock and his own solo career.

Despite recently dabbling in the world of film directing, Rob Zombie (born Robert Bartleh Cummings) still has deep connections to the music world. His distinct style of heavy metal rose him to prominence in the late 1990s after he broke from New York based heavy metal group White Zombie in 1998. And though it's more frequent to see the musician behind the camera, directing films like the Halloween remake or House of 1,000 Corpses,Zombie still makes occasional musical appearances and rocks out just as hard as he ever did.
