Pittsburgh-based The Garment District is multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Baron, a founding member of Brooklyn’s The Ladybug Transistor (Merge Records), with contributions from family and friends. Her debut tape, Melody Elder, was released on Night-People Records in 2011. In summer 2014, The Garment District’s debut full-length LP, IF YOU TAKE YOUR MAGIC SLOW, was released on Night-People. The band’s 2012 7” (La Station Radar) features a remix by legendary English musician/producer Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3, Spectrum, E.A.R.). The Garment District has performed at the VIA Music & New Media Festival, been filmed for The Andy Warhol Museum’s
Silver Studio Sessions, and participated in acclaimed artist Doug Aitken’s Station-to-Station project. In 2015, The Garment District releases a new album via the Texas-based experimental label, Kendra Steiner Editions.
Butterbirds has been playing in different incarnations since 2009 when its four members met up with each other at the University of Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh-based alt country group’s first album Sweet Little Honey-Nothin’ was released in 2013, and the band continues to record in Wilkinsburg, PA.
