Bush Tetras - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Bush Tetras
Women musicians were scarce in rock music until the punk movement of the late 1970s. New York City's Bush Tetras in 1979 proved that women rockers were not only growing in visibility but also were innovative and groundbreaking. Today, hundreds of bands are copying Bush Tetras' progressive funk noise, even if these bands do not know it. Cynthia Sley's half talking, half scolding vocals, Pat Place's searing, hypnotic guitar resonance, Laura Kennedy's sturdy, funky bass grooves and Dee Pop's pounding, thumping percussion together combined for a sound like no other band. Bush Tetras failed to grow out of the punk rock circuit and into the mainstream, however, and ultimately the band split in 1983. Bush Tetras reformed from 1995 to 1998, and then reformed again in 2005. Kennedy died in 2011; the band's current bassist is Val Opielski. Bush Tetras' third and most recent album, Happy, was recorded in 1998 and became available in 2012.
Wild at Heart - (Set time: 9:00 PM)

The Simple Pleasure - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
The Simple Pleasure
The Simple Pleasure was born out of the rib of Chad Raines one Sunday in Austin, TX. Since then it has become an all consuming menace and must be stopped. They wear bad clothes and shamelessly dance and grind. The trash-disco pop performances leave some injured and most hysterical. Since traveling the world with Amanda Palmer - The Simple Pleasure has gained an eclectic fan base to say the least.
