Nodes of Ranvier is a metalcore band from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA, that was signed to Victory Records. The band is described as "one of Sioux Falls' most successful and popular acts ever." They have played with bands such as Bleeding Through, Every Time I Die, Bury Your Dead, Caliban, Comeback Kid, Norma Jean, Misery Signals, Extol and more across the US. The band's name refers to the myelin sheath gaps which are also called Nodes of Ranvier.

Nodes of Ranvier was formed in September 2000 and has seen 18 different band members including Nick Thomas, the singer from the Sioux Falls band The Spill Canvas, as well as Brian Anderson, lead singer and guitarist from the band All About Sam. By December 2007, the time of the band's break-up, the only remaining original member was guitarist Jon Parker. The band released its first three albums through record label Facedown Records. In February 2007, they signed with Victory Records. Although the band's signing with Victory was touted as a turning point, their July 2007 release, Defined by Struggle, revealed strains between the band and Victory, who reportedly did not do much to promote them. In mid-December 2007, news sources confirmed that Nodes of Ranvier would perform its last show in the same month and then disband. Guitarist Jon Parker, one of the band's founding members, confirmed the announcement to media outlets, ending weeks of fan speculation. On January 24, 2017, it was announced by Facedown Records that the band would be reuniting for Facedown Fest 2017, the 20th anniversary of the label.


Names Without Numbers is a four-piece rock and roll band from Omaha, NE / Council Bluffs, IA. Since forming in the summer of 2000, they have strived to bring their music and message to the masses. Since playing their "farewell show" in 2006, they have only played twice for a couple reunion shows in 2009. After 7 long years, it's time to rekindle the flame and begin playing again. Stylistically, they play a unique blend of indie-rock with plenty of raw emotion and pop-punk energy. Some bands with a comparable style include Jimmy Eat World, Anberlin, Thrice, The Get Up Kids and many others. It isn't clear what the future will hold for Names Without Numbers, maybe they will only play 1 show.maybe they will play a lot of shows? Time will tell. But as for the year 2016, NWN is back.


Jump the Tiger is a young and hungry Omaha based quartet bringing a classic brand of "knuckle-head Rock N Roll" to a decorated local scene that was born to boogie. Jump the Tiger brings no gimmicks. Don't expect egos of entitlement or any common and flashy cliché's . Just gnarly, fist pounding, face melting Rock N Roll.

Forming Less than 2 years ago, the band is comprised of former and present members of Paria, Civicminded, Lonely Estates, and Ketchup and Mustard gas.


Black Velvet is a LOUD, fuzzy, riffy, Rock & Roll 2 piece out of Omaha, NE. While writing head banging riffs to get your mind right, you'll still find yourself getting down and groovy.
