This summer is on fire and we here at Powerhouse have decided to lay back and stay chill. We are back to our roots, with founders Ben and Pat at the helm and it’s time for a little celebration! Join us for some great music, cold refreshments and get “Back To ‘Cool” at Powerhouse Factories’ first ever back to school party Friday, August 26th, 2016 starting at 6pm.
This week’s Powerhouse Live series features up-and-coming synth-pop group out of Nashville, COIN. They stopped by our shop right before the start of their tour with Passion Pit. Keep a lookout for them this summer—not only does their album arrive in a couple of weeks, but they’ll be back on the road with Betty Who and Neon Trees.
Watch a stripped-down version of their single, Run, as well as their take on Simon & Garfunkel’s Cecilia. Enjoy!
Bonnaroo can be summed up in a few short words. The music and arts festival is a cacophony of sweat, sweet melodies, 808 drops, clean vibes and hula-hoops. Each year, the American Poster Institute dudes pack up our shops and join the pilgrimage to Manchester, Tennessee to hang out, see some music and sell some posters and merch.

Back in March, after one of those rad ice storms, we packed up our gear and roadtripped it to The Grog Shop in Cleveland, Ohio to hang out with We Were Promised Jetpacks. Adam, of the Edinburgh-based band, did us the pleasure of recording stripped down versions of “Peace Sign” from their 2014 live release “E Rey: Live in Philadelphia” and “Human Error” from their 2011 release “In the Pit of the Stomach” for a remote Powerhouse Factories Live session before their show. Check out the videos below.
