  • The Classic Crime Headliner

    The Classic Crime is a Seattle-based alternative rock band. They released their Tooth & Nail debut album, 'Albatross', in 2006. It marked the fastest first-week sales for a new artist in the history of T&N. The band members are Matt MacDonald (guitar & vocals), Robbie Negrin (guitar), Alan Clark (bass), and Paul "Skip" Erickson (drums). Albatross was followed by Seattle Sessions EP (2007), The Silver Cord (2008), Vagabonds (2010), Phoenix (2012), What Was Done, Vol. 1: A Decade Revisited (2014), and they are now touring on their latest record How to Be Human (2017).

  • Matt & Toby Opener

    "Specifically, We (Toby and I) have been wanting to do less aggressive music as well as the heavy stuff we do in Emery. Sometimes we do "acoustic emery" and everyone seems to really like it, so instead of shifting the direction, Emery will continue its sound. We are just ADDING a whole new band to satisfy what we want to do. Matt and Toby will be exploring all the territory of acoustic-electronic-vintage and modern stuff. We are using horns, piano, drums, synthesizers and what ever else we can come up with instead of distorted guitar and screaming. It will be adventurous and dramatic." - Matt Carter

  • Civilian Opener

    Intricately melodic and immediately captivating, CIVILIAN’s You Wouldn’t Believe What Privilege Costs is both a bold declaration from, and rebirth for, songwriter Ryan Alexander. Dubbed “The Best of What’s Next” by Paste Magazine, their latest Tooth & Nail release guarantees CIVILIAN's place in the canon of modern American independent music.

    A follow-up to 2012's Should This Noose Unloosen, YWBWPC’s ringing guitars and sonorous vocals sway with austere, precise drumming while thoughtful bass paints outside the lines. With each track, frontman Ryan Alexander uses his art to add nuance to how we talk about government and poverty.

    “YWBWPC is an attempt to examine the intersection of love and politics and science and hope and nihilism. These aren’t mutually exclusive ideas” says Alexander. “They interact every second of every day, yet we feel the need to keep them separate and neat. Love is anything but neat. Religion is anything but easy. Politics are anything but convenient. We should boldly sit at the table of ideas and share our stories. This is what it is to be human.”
