Chris Bathgate
Chris Bathgate
Chris Bathgate was born in Ames, IA on April 21st 1982. His early childhood was set in Iowa and Kentucky, with the majority of his adolescence spent in Illinois. After moving to Michigan to attend U of M’s School of Art and Design in 2001, Chris emerged from the Ann Arbor local music scene. This strong local presence led to the attention of locally based label Quite Scientific and their release of A Cork Tale Wake (2007). This album began Chris' foray into high fidelity audio, and bore one of his widely heard songs, "Serpentine". This song garnered the release of A Cork Tale Wake on UK label One Little Indian, and saw significant airplay on BBC Radio 2. This success beget several European solo-tours and a fast growing international visibility. Since, Chris has released 5 additional albums with Quite Scientific, including his most recent and prominent album to date —Salt Year (2011). This release saw Chris touring extensively across the US, performing for NPR (Tiny Desk Concert), and receiving bold attention at SXSW.

This long and active period of time was ended with the announcement of a hiatus in the summer of 2012. This absence from performing lasted 2 years. During this time Chris began work on the project SKULLLS, filmed performance videos, and continued writing solo material for future release. He became active again in the fall of 2014 and has continued to tour and film performances of unreleased songs. His new EP "Old Factory" will be released early 2016.

The Go Rounds
The Go Rounds are bits of all your favorite bands exploded into rock n roll confetti. Their unique brand of Psychedelic Americana Pop crosses, blends, and deconstructs genres; from indie to country to art-rock and baroque folk; creating an accessible and engaging experience that will leave you talking.

THE BEST OF WHAT’S NEXT: “The Go Rounds are bringing a head-clearing common sense to the sometimes senseless head-banging of rock ‘n’ roll. Or maybe they’re here to exterminate cynicism.” – Paste Magazine

The Kalamazoo quartet has been a dominant force in the Michigan music landscape for the last 5 years, releasing 4 LPs, 4 EPs, and playing countless Great Lakes music festivals including Wheatland Music Festival, Blissfest, Hoxeyville Music Festival, Earthwork Harvest Gathering, Farmblock Fest, Short’s Anniversary XII, Buttermilk Jamboree, Farmfest, Founder’s Fest, DunnDunn Fest, Traverse City Microbrew and Music Fest, Mile of Music, and Holler Fest. Some of the major acts The Go Rounds have supported include Greensky Bluegrass, Hard Working Americans, Vulpeck, Billy Strings, Keller Williams, Bruce Hornsby, Arlo Guthrie, Asleep at the Wheel, Mickey Hart, and Railroad Earth.

The songs are catchy, twangy, and trippy – led by the creative force of frontman Graham Parsons, whose spellbinding vocals weave through lush sonic textures as the band puts on a master class of intricate arrangements. Their powerful and dynamic live show has earned them a reputation as one of the best live bands in the Midwest.

Their last full-length, Don’t Go Not Changin’, made several year end best lists and earned them 3 WYCE awards, including the Special Jury Prize of Album of the Year. Their creativity shows no sign of slowing down. In August, they released a new EP, I Promise I Won’t Get Hurt, and have another EP ready for release. They are also working on their next full length – due out before the end of 2017.
