Lantern - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Lantern is a Rock ‘N’ Roll band based out of Philadelphia that is centered around the duo of Zachary Devereux Fairbrother and Emily Robb. The two have created a relentless maniacal Rock ‘N’ Roll animal, penetrated with fuzz-wah monsters, boogie-diseases, exorcisms, black leather and sex. Inspired by their idols The Rolling Stones, The Stooges, Bo Diddley, the Cramps, MC5, David Bowie, and all the originators of R&B and the blues, they wish to contribute their mark on the great American folk music, Rock ‘N’ Roll.

They are releasing their latest album, Rock 'N' Roll Rorschach, into the mid-summer heat of July 9th. The album marks a shift in sound from the blown out world of 4-track self-recordings to a more discernable breed of raw power. Lantern's sound melts genres together, bending weird blues into a frenzy of fuzzed soloing and glammed-out dance beats. The album is testament to the odyssey of rock 'n' roll and it will make you want to boogie as soon as the needle drops. Sophomore Lounge Records is offering it up so come and get it.
Dong Johnson - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Dong Johnson
Dong Johnson is a punk rock band that recently released its four-song Happy Birthday EP. The band includes Opal Rock (5 Points Of Logic), bassist Tracy Stanton (The Bloodfeathers), drummer Chris Wilson (Ted Leo And The Pharmacists), and guitarist Joshua K. Cicetti (Gildon Works, The Midnight Sounds); the EP was recorded and mixed by Jeff Zeigler at his Uniform Recording studio
Amanda X - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Amanda X
With an uninhibited musical dynamic that could only be birthed from three friends, Amanda X delivers with ethereal vocal harmonies, heavy hits and solid guitar work. Formed serendipitously in late spring of last year, Amanda X’s members set to work and self-released their first EP on tape a few months later.

Currently Amanda X are recording their first full length album with Jeff Zeigler of Uniform Recording. The band hopes to release the new full length sometime in early 2014. Amanda X is comprised of Cat Park of Bandname on guitar and vocals, Kat Bean on bass and vocals and Tiff Yoon on drums.
