The Pilgrims & The Natch!
January 5, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
According to the New England Music Awards, Brattleboro’s The Natch! and Windsor’s The Pilgrims are the top two original rock bands in Vermont. Together for the first time to celebrate the joy of music, these two bands promise an evening of electric mayhem.
It’s gonna be 2018, baby, and these hot cats – The Pilgrims – have been around for 8 years. That’s 8 years and 6 records and 100 shows since The Pilgrims started in an office space turned apartment in Windsor, VT. From the shotgun streets of Depot Ave to the used car lot, to the lightening storm, to the museum, to the bar-room. Three friends began the band, picking up and losing members along the way, ya dig?
2017 finds the six person starting lineup squeezing their sweat streaked rock n roll into ten tracks aptly titled ‘No Focus’ (now available on stunning vinyl by The Case of the Missing Records).
No Focus is the first full length in the six man Pilgrim lineup – that’s Chris, Davis, Chris, Kiel, Chris and Brendan.

The NATCH! are outsiders and cherish the middle finger. They play the music they want to and have a great time doing it. This energetic trio mixes heaviness with melody, dips it in psychedelic and sprinkles it with pop. The NATCH was recently awarded The BEST ROCK BAND in VT for 2017 by the New England Music Awards. They have toured up, down and sideways and according to Paolo De Gregorio—Editor-In-Chief of The Deli Magazine NYC, “The NATCH is a trio that plays some kind of deranged garage rock in the best NYC tradition: lots of attitude, big distorted guitars, crooked vibe and a coordinating wardrobe.” The NATCH! are thrilled to drop their technicolor rock hammer down anywhere anytime anyhow. The Natch! consists of Paris Mancini (Bass & Vocals), Trish Naudon (Drums & Vocals), and Chris Thomas (Guiltar & Vocals) and hail from Guilford, VT by way of NYC.
