"City Guide - January 2008"

"[They] rocked the socks off of a mediocre venue, providing far more than the underwhelming background music that I expected from a Georgetown bar... I really loved the harder rock sound of Bottles Cans. Think somewhere between the Black Crowes and Ted Leo. On the whole - great rock in a city starved for music with a true edge. Certainly worth the price of cover." -


"We caught up with [Bottles/Cans] between their stops in Minneapolis and New York to talk about making music here in Washington - even when it means falling through a stage." -

"Week in Preview: Bottles/Cans"

"Bottles/Cans have earned their headliner status after countless opening gigs. They'll be on the Black Cat's backstage Tuesday night." -

"Bottles/Cans: College Rock at Its Finest"

"...At home in dingy clubs and smoky bars, they have no qualms about cranking up the volume all the way to 11 and embracing the defiant spirit of rock- for as long as their finances will allow.

"...Tracks like 'Shotgun Sam' and 'Tabitha Calhoun,' are infused with that Southern restlessness and rebellion that make you want to skip town with nothing but your girl and a pack of smokes."

"Review: Fall Fest"

"Then there were Bottles/Cans, who further stirred the crowd with their classic, no-holds-barred approach to rock 'n' roll. Singer Kevin Eskowitz has a great rock voice, filled with a little gravel and a lot of power. His rebellious banter with the crowd -- “ "We're playing rock music, and if you don't like it, throw shit at us!" -- bolstered their set, which reached a fever pitch with their closer, a cover of The Who's 'My Generation.' "

"District Mixtape: Bottles Cans"

Join GW alums Kevin Eskowitz, Zach Pentel and Brendan Polmer when their rock outfit Bottles/Cans plays in support of The Chance this Friday, Jan. 30 at the Black Cat. What say the recycling enthusiasts of their sound? "When people see us play, they're usually rather liquored up and think that we're the best thing since sliced bread. But that's not to say that we sound like shit to sober people, though there does seem to be a tinge of Jack Daniels in our sound that drunks often respond positively to," said Polmer, drummer and former Hatchet Arts editor. "We like to reach out to those individuals."

How populist. Their playlist:

1. King Khan - Land of the Freak

2. Little Walter -Last Night

3. Animal Collective - Blueish

4. Kings of Leon - Crawl

5. Andrew Bird - Natural Disaster

6. Matt & Kim - Yea Yeah

7. The Black Keys - Strange Times

8. Q-Tip - Shaka

9. The Knux - Playboy

10. Fats Domino - I Hear Ya Knockin'

11. Bottles/Cans - Tabitha

12. Bottles/Cans - Everybody Knows - The GW Hatchet

"On Tap Magazine Band of the Month"

Each month, On Tap selects an artist of the month, a local band on the verge of making it big. This month: Bottles/Cans. Here's what they had to say: - On Tap Magazine

"Undeclared Rock"

"...Bottles/Cans normally thrives on the rock. Their sound, both live and on recording, is marked by a very obvious energy and a chemistry as musicians that seemed natural from the very start..."

"Unlike 90% of the hi-octane trios out there, B/C keeps things fresh and interesting with incredibly solid songwriting and off-kilter structures that give their songs an inventive sheen." - WRGW radio


Still working on that hot first release.



Bottles/Cans is a trio based out of Washington D.C. Heavily influenced by the music they listened to growing up - from Dylan to Oasis, Fleetwood Mac to Prince - Bottles/Cans loudly embraces its southern (and northern) roots.

Bottles/Cans is currently recording their debut album, due early summer 2009.

They have shared the stage with bands like OK Go, N.E.R.D., Regina Spektor, Gym Class Heroes, Thievery Corporation, The Dodos, Only Son, Jukebox the Ghost, and many others.
