"We wanted something that when you heard it, you didn't have anything to relate it to or have some preconceived idea of," Bleeth guitarist and former Astrokat member, Lauren Palma explains to New Times of the band's moniker. "We're playing with new rhythms. It's about people's feelings when they're stuck. The songs are even sludgier and doomier." Discover the darker side that is Bleeth as Palma and her rock crew take over Kill Your Idol this week.

Miami's LunchMoney Lewis wanted to tackle an issue everyone could relate to with his single "Bills." And 25 million YouTube views later, it's safe to say he did just that. "Moving to a new area, like a kid going to college, you’re on your own," LunchMoney explains to New Times in a recent interview. "You got your own apartment. You have new responsibilities to take on." But no matter how many bills you may have, homeboy knows you gotta have a little fun. That's why the Magic City rapper is taking over the Fontainebleau Miami Beach for this year's Mack-A-Poolooza with Flo Rida, Shaggy, and Natalie La Rose.
