Live Sessions

Are they perfect? No. Are they girls? No. They are three young lads from Akron chasing the fumes of vapor punk. Conjuring sounds as delicate as the falsetto and as brash as the odd-metered noise freakout, Perfect Girl spans the spectrum of musical influences. Below, watch them perform four tracks, and hear their interview in […]

In a break from our normal programming over at the BSR Sessions workshop, we’re happy to share with you some recordings of Oboist Scott Little. Scott is a student here at the Kent State School of Music, and was gracious enough to share some of his talents with us. In the videos below, you’ll hear […]

SAP, though now spread across the country like warm vegemite, are a band of great personal and community importance. My first memories of coming to Kent State were meeting the members, moshing at their shows, buying their tapes and shirts religiously, and most importantly, learning that it’s cool to care. SAP is the band our […]

Born and raised in Kent, Trick is one of the newest chapters in the city’s musical history. Enjoy their 90s-style blend of indie and pop-punk with a handful of minimalist performances from the Soda EP, released in September. The videos are below, and you can head to their bandcamp here.      

When/Where, an alt/punk band from the Cleveland area, stopped by the BSR lobby in the recent past to record a couple tracks of theirs (plus a cover) with a stripped down setup. Afterwards, we interviewed them about the process of slowly becoming a full band, becoming punk as an angsty young college touree, and good […]

On the first installation of BSR Sessions of the semester, Elyria-based alternative rapper Eliy Orcko performs three unreleased tracks for our listening pleasure. “Only Reason”, “Over”, and “Porch” are all off his forthcoming projects with a range of producers.

For our latest session, Valley Girls traveled intercounty to perform their minimalist noise rock for BSR Sessions, featuring both new unreleased material and a two-parter off their latest album. The videos are linked below, including links to their bandcamp.

At long last, the infamous Akronites’ set is up, long past due after recording in the spring. Despite audio files getting lost in the matrix, we’re still happy to present you with three songs by Backtalk, all off their latest record, Analog Parts.┬áThe terrible twosome play “Moving Shadow”, “Reptilian Control System”, and “Simple Rearrangements.”

Hailing from the sunny, verdant shores of the Black River, Elyria’s own Stalemate came to BSR to play some new songs and an old song. Each of those are able to watch below, as well as an interview with the band where they discuss growing up with their music, writing a new record from scratch […]

On their way to Akron via Grandpa’s Cheesebarn, Winnebago Vacation stopped at BSR to play a couple songs and chat about tour! Watch their set, split into two sections, as well as the interview below! You can find them on bandcamp here.
