The Red Pandas
Saylorsburg, Pa.
Sounds like: Alternative soft rock with light melodic riffs and a unique vintage flair combined with vocal harmonies.
Fun fact: The band was created when member Rachel Wild made a facebook status saying “someone join a band with me.” Originally calling themselves “basket of red pandas” and later shortening their name to “The Red Pandas.”

City Limits
New Brunswick, N.J.
Sounds like: Melodic, riff filled punk rock a little rough around the edges from their DIY, “basement scene” roots.
Fun fact: The members of City Limits constantly annoy each other during their day jobs by adding to a group text message thread that dates back to April 2013, common topics involve pro wrestling and Blazing Saddles quotes.
