Northern Exposure
Northern Exposure
Higher Ground is proud to announce the return of the Northern Exposure. The Northern Exposure series provides an opportunity for up-and-coming Vermont bands to take the stage in the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge. Higher Ground is thrilled to provide an opportunity for developing acts to show their stuff at Burlington’s premier music venue. Think of it as a farm-system – artists that impress the HG team will be considered for slots supporting larger national acts at Higher Ground!

The shows are all ages, only cost $6, and will feature 3-4 acts. If you’re a motivated band that wants to play Higher Ground, this is your chance. Interested performers should email Bonnie Hiliadis at, with the subject line “NORTHERN EXPOSURE: your band name.”
LAWGIVER is a five piece deathcore/downtempo band from Upstate NY paving their way with perseverance and a take no prisoners attitude. The E.P. Bastardizer will be released early August, with a slew of shows pre and post release to support this new effort along the east coast! We also released a single called BUSY SIGNALS that has acquired a lot of attention quickly, check this out before we come to your town!
UnTapped arrived onto the cold Vermont loud rock scene in 2008. Guitarist Shawn Toussaint, Drummer Kris Cullen, Bass Toad (Shawn Benjamin), and Vocalist Suzie Tremblay.

Led by passionate vocals, the full bodied detail of the chugging guitars propels the music while the rhythmic, multi-layered beats pulse powerfully through the listener.

“When it comes to writing, recording, and performing we set the bar pretty high for ourselves while retaining the fun and freedom found in our musical outlet. We bring a song to the table and arrange it as a group of individuals with similar yet different musical backgrounds. Our varied influences combined with a respected yet vetted openness, creates a structured cohesion that is found at the center of everything we do.”

The music, produced by Untapped, strikes with force and a unified vision that can only come from a group working together as a creative unit. Generating powerful and passionate performances it is clear they embrace their time with the crowd.

"The lyrical movement is a rigorous attempt to preserve the notion of balance amidst the ongoing struggle with shadowed illumination, somber glory, and wicked virtue. Fused are the dark and light elements of real life in a symphonic ride that exposes the precarious and biased state of affairs within and without each of us. A segue into a new chapter where all is absorbed.”
