Pearl And The Beard - (Set time: 11:15 PM)
Pearl And The Beard
Pearl and the Beard is three voices, one cello, one guitar, one glockenspiel, one melodica, several drums, one accordion, ninety-six teeth, and one soul.

Former strangers Jocelyn Mackenzie, Emily Hope Price, and Jeremy Styles were united in the great city of New York. Each had migrated there from a far corner of the nation with naught but food in their pockets and money in their bellies. Each had the same true love. Since then, the three have nested, and their unique brand of brightly melodic songcraft continues to blossom of its own accord.

Pearl and the Beard loves you the way you've always been.
Lucius - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Lucius
"The two singers from Lucius are a dangerous tag team, sounding powerful without becoming overbearing, tender without becoming too cutesy...they must know each other well, as their voices work together in an uncannily close relationship" - The Deli Magazine

When they wrote their self-titled EP (due February 14th), Lucius was living in an old victorian house in Brooklyn's Ditmas Park. They found the place on Craigslist, not knowing it was a recording studio and music school for 60 years prior. There were so many treasures that had been left behind - like the 100 year old Steinway piano that would nurture their writing habits. The four-story musical fortress also housed 8 other musician friends and would soon open their doors to bandmates, Danny Molad and Peter Lalish.

Holly and Jess have had a relationship filled with coincidences. Their lives are uniquely in sync. "When we were ready to make our record Danny and Pete felt it was imperative that the recording reflect that synergy. None of us were concerned with trying to sound like 'a band', we just wanted to create a unique environment for each song to sit in." Much of their record is about these unique experiences, told from the same perspective, at the same time, with the same sentiment. Two voices as one.

Lucius has been described by the New York Times as "The next Feist" having "luscious, luminous, lilting lullabies", by Seventeen Magazine as "alluring and magnetic” and their song , "Don't Just Sit There" recently debuted on NPR's All Songs Considered this past February . The recently released self-titled EP, produced by Tony Berg (Phantom Planet, Aimee Mann, Beck) and Dan Molad (Elizabeth & The Catapult, Luke Temple/Here We Go Magic) is an exciting debut.
You Won't - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
You Won't
Massachusetts natives Josh Arnoudse and Raky Sastri have been making things together since 1999, when they engaged in horrendously reckless swordplay during a high school production of "My Favorite Year." From 2003 to 2008 they conspired to produce a series of strange and little-seen movies while Josh attended college in Western Massachusetts and Raky gigged around NYC with a number of different bands. During this period of geographical separation they began trading home recordings of their original songs via email and formulating vague and grandiose plans to start a band together some day.

You Won't was born in late 2010, when the two friends willfully marooned themselves in the woods of Eastern Massachusetts (for the second and third time, respectively) to record a number of Josh's songs. They emerged like baby bears in the spring of 2011 and spent the next several months touring the east coast and playing regularly in Boston and NYC as music blogs including Spinner, I Guess I'm Floating, and Pretty Much Amazing began to take note of their distinctively melodic musical stylings. Their full-length debut, Skeptic Goodbye, was released on Old Flame Records on February 14, 2012.
