This weekend, 10K Islands’ forthcoming band, The Big East, played their first show at Cellar Door in Richmond, VA. We’re very excited about our newest band’s live debut, and can’t wait to release these sunny, indie-pop tracks into your ears. They’re sure to soundtrack your next beach party, or summer road-trip. It’s all under wraps for now, but for more details, check out the Richmond Times-Dispatch’s story, and a more in-depth article on the band’s evolution and sound via RVA Mag. Stay tuned for more updates!
This 4th of July Miami was out in force at Audio Junkie’s Independence Day jam with a ton of awesome local bands, including PLAINS, Arboles Libres & Deaf Poets, along with Jolt Radio (providing the tunes outside) & Subvert Ales providing the tasty homegrown brews.
Check out Jolt Radio’s recap for pictures and more! Much thanks to them for the great coverage and jams.

“The 10K Islands studio’s spirit animal. Part wolf, part giraffe–on acid.”
Earlier today, Crossfade of the Miami New Times premiered PLAINS new video for “Stains”, the whiskey drenched punk-rock party track off their debut album.
True to the music, the video–directed by guitarist and awesome dude Jorge Gonzalez Graupera–is fun and.. well, probably whiskey drenched. It’s compiled mainly of tour footage from earlier this year, and has at least one pillow fight. Check it out!
Today, Miami’s bass overlords, Basshead Music, release their first ever LP.
“All Killer, No Filler” stretches right across the grand spectrum of Bass Music, from dubstep to hip-hop, drum & bass to booty bass. It features a number of Miami’s own artists, as well as some out of town heavyweights.

PLAINS teamed up with director Matthew Prickett to create the music video for “Dry”. I don’t think any of us here have ever seen a better depiction of what it feels like to wake up next to an empty bottle of Jameson, rock bottom.
Said frontman Mike McGinnis: “We tried to represent the song in a very literal way. It’s about being at a low point in life after losing a loved one. The character in the song ends up getting out of his funk after he realizes that he can create life just as easy as it’s been taken away from him.”
