The RV is packed with sunscreen, wet wipes, posters and merch and we’re nearly ready to head south for another year of fun on “The Farm.” By 9 p.m. tonight, we’ll be Bonnaroo bound! But before we get on the road we wanted to drop some knowledge on our fellow ‘Roo-goers. We know that it’s impossible to be everywhere and to see every musician at a giant music festival like Bonnaroo. So before we leave, we scour the lineup lists, picking and choosing, to create our own personalized festival schedules. Everyone knows who the headliners are but a handful of Powerhouse’s finest got together to compile a list of our deep cut picks. After the jump, check out our list of small type bands that anyone spending the next week at ‘Roo can’t and shouldn’t miss. Read More
Last month, we had the pleasure of welcoming Battleme into the shop while they were on tour with the legendary Toadies.

Afterward, Matt and the band stuck around and picked out their favorite posters to take home with them. Check out the video after the jump to see what they picked and why. Read More

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.
