Floated began in August 2016 as a group initiative to showcase the hottest alternative acts in art, music, and culture. Featuring raw interviews with up-and-coming artists and exotic lifestyle gurus, the Rochester-based magazine is now gearing up to celebrate the release of its fifth issue later this week. The release show will feature some of the most popular indie music acts in the region. Local retro-80's, garage pop project Boy Jr. will join The Demos (pictured) in giving a proper indie rock welcome to two out of town acts. The ethereal dance-pop quartet Humble Braggers will be visiting from Buffalo, as will the defiantly anti-J-pop duo Love Spread, bringing its bizarre combination of metal and electro-pop from Brooklyn.
