Maitland - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Maitland
Years of brotherhood, self-proclaimed and genetic, have created the Indie/folk/rock band Maitland. Pulling influences from Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, and woodsy expeditions, Maitland has transformed from a minimalist folk duo into a rock quartet. With the release of the band’s first album, “(from a cabin in the woods),” Josh Hines (vocals/guitar/songwriter), toured subway systems in the North East cities like Boston, Philadelphia, New York, etc. Once it was time to make more noise, Josh Hines invited his brother, Alex Hines (bass/vocals), Evan Moffitt (guitar), and Adam Shumski (drums) to the stage. Capitalizing on the versatility of the folk iterations, Maitland’s live performances express backwoods rustic elements paired with driving percussion and unforgettable melodies. Evan Moffitt creates a comfortable blanket of atmosphere to lay over Maitland’s three part harmonies, haunting falsettos, and dynamic percussion.
Former Belle - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Former Belle
Since its start in the winter of 2010, Former Belle has taken on many different outfits, all led by frontman, Bruno Catrambone. The project self-released a full band EP entitled, Sounds From The Ground. The release helped the band mark themselves as a newcomer in the Philadelphia music scene. Former Belle backed their first release with multiple regional tours as well as a five-week European tour. This helped to shape the project into its new-found home of both full band and solo performances. After a year-long break while Catrambone pursued his other project, CRUISR, Bruno’s downtime between tours, as well as writing on the road, led him to collect new songs mixed with revisited old material to form a new EP, Foreign Bed, out now on Randm Records.
Dirty Dollhouse - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Dirty Dollhouse
The female folk trio Dirty Dollhouse is the music of singer-songwriter Chelsea Mitchell and vocalists Vanessa Winters (of The Lawsuits) and Amber Twait. The group's signature sound comes from century-spanning influences, simple instrumentation, and layers of harmony. Their debut EP, "25 Shades" was released in 2014.

"Singer songwriter seems too generic a label for show starter Chelsea Mitchell, but her vocals deserve more spotlight than simply deeming her folk. Instantly, with the help of backing singers Amber Twait and Vanessa Winters (her sisters in Dirty Dollhouse), the room was gracefully filled with lived-in harmonies, a compliment to her earnest a Capella peaks." - Alexandra Fletcher, Tri State Indie.
