Faux Slang - (Set time: 11:15 PM)
Faux Slang
“Faux Slang, released by RIPE Records, fills the auditory gap between Goner Records rebels like Quintron and the polished poise of the Soft Pack (ex-the Muslims)… with hints of surfy undertones, the core of “Golden Throats” brings to mind the chilled out soundscapes of more pop-based acts like West Palm’s Surfer Blood or Beach Fossil’s pre-mastered EP cuts, yet with more texture, tension, and edge.” – The Deli Magazine.

“The band has its own take on psychedelic-influenced garage rock, like sifting through old records by Guided By Voices, Can, and Velvet Underground” - WXPN’s The Key
Last Tide - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Last Tide
Last Tide is a Washington, DC-based trio formed in 2009. Their brand of heavy, psychedelic indie rock weaves classic and contemporary influences into powerful songs that emphasize melodies and sonic textures. Their new full-length album, out in May 2012, is entitled Lost to Memory.
Royal Shoals - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Royal Shoals
"Boasting exes from The Ropers, Saturday People, and Public Record, the Shoals dive deep into a pool of post-punk influences that we wish more bands would feel comfortable in — we’re talking Orange Juice, early James, Mighty Lemon Drops, Miaow and so on here. (Real back pages of NME circa mid-80s stuff here, the kind we’ve been geeking out on since, well, the mid-80s.) But Royal Shoals are not a retro exercise: They just know what they like, and with all apologies to those other bands, this has a more fun spirit than what you might have found in prime Thacher-era Britain. You might even dance to this."
