This event is all ages

It was the winter of 2013, when a casual lunch at Burger King manifested the hearts of four lost souls and transformed the gang into an unstoppable courier of smash hits. SLEEPWALKERS, a group of outlaws who rose from the blue collar depths of a glorified suburban landscape, seek to recreate the golden age of songwriting.

Combining the soothing sounds of Yanni with the angelic melodies of Enya, SLEEPWALKERS are sure to be the butter to your bread. Matthew McConaughey says, "SLEEPWALKERS songs are more historically significant than the Declaration of Independence...Nick Cage won't have to look far to find this National Treasure." SLEEPWALKERS have diamonds on the soles of their shoes, but let me tell you, they're not going to Graceland.

SLEEPWALKERS are bringin' the heat and they're about to burn it up, baby.

From RVA Mag Online:

"Richmond's Sleepwalkers dropped their album Greenwood Shade last summer, Ryan Adams and Judd Apatow are both talking about them at the moment. 

SLEEPWALKERS - Images This should be the biggest band right now Wtf

— Ryan Adams (@TheRyanAdams) August 3, 2015
Apatow retweeted Adams' the kind words for Sleepwaker's single "Images" off their 2014 record Greenwood Shade. 

Back when the album was released last summer, we were pumped for the release and dropped a single on our Soundcloud page:

Led by brothers Michael and Austin York, their shift into Sleepwalkers is analogous to the transition that occurs when a former child actor switches smoothly into adult roles. Their former group, Duchess Of York, had quite a following amongst the younger set back in the mid-2000s, and their shows were characterized by elaborate light shows, wild rockstar performances, and teenagers swooning in the front rows."
The Trillions
The Trillions
Richmond, Virginia based The Trillions siphon sounds from their favorite high-intensity bands: some pop wizardry from The Strokes, big-and-loud drums from Led Zeppelin and The Who, a dose of bombastic shred and guitar feedback from Pinkerton-era Weezer, smears of vocal attitude from The Buzzcocks, all drizzled with some topical lyrics and harmonies à la The Beatles, The Zombies, or Dr. Dog. In 2013, they were named as one of Virginia's top 12 bands you should listen to now by Paste magazine. The band recently toured with J Roddy Walston and the Business. That tour included a sold out show at New York's famous Bowery Ballroom, as well as, sold out shows in Boston and Richmond. Since 2010, the band has also opened up for national touring acts such as The Head and The Heart, Girl Talk, Best Coast, Motion City Soundtrack, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, Jukebox the Ghost, and many others. The Trillions feature Charlie Glenn (guitar, vocals), Chris Smith (guitar, vocals), Robbie King (bass) and Joe Ferguson (drummer).
