Baby Shakes are a sensational Garage Power Pop group from New York City. Mary on lead vocals and guitar, Judy on lead guitar and vocals, Claudia on bass and vocals, and Ryan on drums. With catchy melodic vocals over dirty guitars and a killer rhythm section, their influences range from The Ramones and Slade to Chuck Berry and 60’s Motown girl groups.

Formed in 2005, they’ve released 4 singles, a 10” heart-shaped EP, a singles collection, and 3 full length albums. They have toured the US, Japan, China, Ireland, UK and Europe. Baby Shakes have shared the stage with The Romantics, The Boys, Shadows of Knight, The Undertones, Barracudas, Black Lips, Paul Collin’s Beat and during the release of their 2017 LP “Turn it Up” were selected to play The John Waters curated Burger Boogaloo alongside such company as Iggy Pop, Guitar Wolf and Shannon and The Clams.

Protex are a Belfast Power Pop/Punk band which formed in 1978. They formed part of the first wave of Belfast punk bands along with the likes of label-mates The Undertones and Rudi.
Their first records were issued on Good Vibrations records which soon led them to a Kid Jenson Radio Session swiftly followed by an invitation to sign to Polydor Records where the band made three blistering singles, one of which was produced by Chas Chandler of The Animals.

2010 seen a host of assumed lost recordings originally intended for Polydor found by Sing Sing Records in New York which were released as the “Strange Obsessions “LP to vastly renewed interest for the band. Never accustomed to resting on their laurels Protex have toured extensively all over the world in support of this release, added a “Live in Japan LP” to the mix and in 2017 released a follow up album of completely new recordings entitled “Tightrope” on Bachelor Records which is as fresh and vital as anything the band released during 1978-1981.

Sunglasses After Dark and Strange Victory Presents DJ’s will also play their favourite records before and between bands.
