Zooxanth Still 3.jpg



In nature, zooxanthellae are the photosynthetic algae that live inside coral tissue. This symbiotic relationship gives the zooxanthellae an optimal place to live and thrive, while also providing the coral with critical nutrients. When coral experiences stress it expels all the zooxanthellae and loses its rich color, resulting in coral bleaching.

Zooxanthellae is the solo project of cellist Erin Snedecor, who combines her classical upbringing with electronica, pop, and noise to create introspective instrumental pieces. Much like the organisms for which the project is named, the music of Zooxanthellae examines and marvels at our relationships, shared experiences, and both the colossal greatness and laughable insignificance of the roles we play in the world.

Pompeii Graffiti is a self-funded, indie rock band from Annapolis, Maryland, formed in the band room of Annapolis High School by dorky music nerds. They feverishly played as many shows as they could in one year and went on hiatus in the fall of 2006 so that members could pursue their college educations.


Realizing after college that they were all still nerds, the group reformed in March 2010 and released their first full length album, "Five Minutes To Midnight" in June 2011.  On August 9th, 2013 Pompeii Graffiti released their second studio album, "ANNAPOLITAN."


On April 8th, 2014 they began releasing their farcical YouTube web series called INTERNET WORLD TOUR, featuring DIY video collaborations with other local bands, songwriters, recording studios, and videographers. The video series later became their third album, released April 29th, 2018. The band's 2022 release, "Ocean Pines" is an audio journey of songs about gun violence, mental illness, and the insanity of the world we live in punctuated by original string quartet preludes. 


As well as performing their own brand of Indie Rock music, PG likes to perform note-for-note covers of their favorite albums. In 2011-2012 PG covered Cursive's "The Ugly Organ" to sold out shows in Annpolis, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh, and in 2012-2013 they covered Neutral Milk Hotel's "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea".

"The choruses are big. The hooks are catchy. And the most important element of a song, the lyrics, never fail. They get flamboyant and they get insightful"

Black Rhinoceros is Ahren Field (guitar/vox) and Erin Snedecor (cello/vox), who write songs with catchy melodies and intricate harmonies that bring a new voice to lyrics about love, friendships, drinking, and science fiction. 


The duo formed in 2013 as an offshoot of their full electric band, Pompeii Graffiti, after arranging the band’s tunes for just cello and guitar when the rest of the band couldn’t make the gig. Since then, their sound has taken on a life of its own, ranging from intimate confessionals to bluegrass jams to all-out rock. Erin and Ahren have appeared on WRNR, WLOY, and WTMD radios, WRNR’s Rockin’ River Cruise, and featured in shows all over the Annapolis, DC, and Baltimore area. Black Rhinoceros’ self-titled EP is available on Bandcamp or at any of their live shows.
