1. Tracing their debut to an infamously raucous Athens house party in early 2002, The Agenda saw a rapid rise to become one of the most popular bands on the recent Athens scene. Guitarist Ryan Lewis and keyboardist Dan Gellar act as proprietors of Kindercore Records, the most successful of Athens local labels, and such ties landed The Agenda a slot at the labels well-attended showcase during 2002s prestigious South By South West music fest in Austin, TX, earning the fledgling band instant cred on the indie rock scene. The Agendas debut album, Start the Panic is a clamorous collection of punk and garage rock tunes that forges new ground for Kindercore, a label which cut its teeth as an outlet for the melody-driven pop groups that defined the Athens sound of the late 1990s. The record has met with gushing reviews in the European press and the band has since struck out on an overseas European tour. Playing the Reading and Leeds festivals as well as other high profile gigs. Each of the 11 songs on the album is appropriately punctuated with an exclamation point and the band even purports a deliberately over-the-top manifesto declaring, We live for the moment!... We combat the boredom the only way we know how, with the power of young lust and rock n roll!...We are the arrogant hooligans of chaos and disorder withthe sonic boom of electric guitars! 2. Adam Ross started his journey as 'The Agenda' in 2008, in the studio with producer and engineer, Sam Polizzi, at GFI studios. Adam came from a small town outside of Rochester, NY called Lyons, NY. Moving from town to town after 6th grade. Adam was used to being the new kid, and would play music as a way of making friends, and a way to cope. Adam played with 5 other bands before he took his act on his own. After his first semester in college at Berklee College of Music he booked time in the studio with six original songs, and just blueprints of what they could become. The two accompanied by Mike Staus on drums transformed the songs. Adam then took his act on the road, from Rochester, NY to Boston, MA. Right now, Adam is in the studio working on new material, and working on getting more shows together.
