The Dirty Dishes are an experimental indie-rock band based in Boston. Jenny Tuite sings and plays a mean guitar. Kevin Lynch plays drums and sweats. Together they yearn to create a unique and emotive sound. The pair began performing as a duo during the summer of '08; crafting their distinct musical style which has been compared to The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, My Bloody Valentine, Deerhoof, and The Smashing Pumpkins. The recent addition of Alex Molini on synthesizer further expands the Dirty Dishes' sound.

bhob rainey, soprano saxophone
greg kelley, trumpet

"For me, there is nothing to be called 'minimal' in their music, in their choice of low and dangerously weak sounds. It would be nonsense to call this music 'minimal'; on the contrary, their way of making music refines our senses and gives precision to a double movement of internalization and openmindedness. So space is opened and landmarks disappear."
-Philippe Alen, _Improjazz_

Britton Powell is a composer and performer with HUME, based in Washington D.C.
