Low Cut Connie - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Low Cut Connie
Recently the New York Times called Low Cut Connie’s live show “a phenomenon” and “pathologically fun.” The LA Weekly says, “their live show is unmatched in all of rock right now.”

Low Cut Connie formed in 2010 when singer/songwriters Adam Weiner (New Jersey USA) and Daniel Finnemore (Birmingham UK) got stuck in a freight elevator together for four hours and decided to join forces to create their own brand of righteous rock and roll.

In 2011, they released their debut album Get Out the Lotion, landing on NPR / Fresh Air’s Top Ten Albums Of The Year and legendary critic Robert Christgau’s Top Ten Songs Of The Year lists. Their 2nd album, Call Me Sylvia included the band’s biggest song to date, “Boozophilia”, named one of Rolling Stone’s top 50 songs of 2012. The success of this record prompted an invitation by Jack White to play the grand reopening of his Third Man Records venue.

Low Cut Connie played 100+ shows in 2013 and ended the year by recording their third album with renowned producer Thomas Brenneck (Amy Winehouse, Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley, Alabama Shakes). This soulful effort will be released Spring 2015. It features guest stars Merrill Garbus (Tune-Yards), Dean Ween, Greg Cartwright (Reigning Sound), and members of the Dap Kings and The Budos Band.

The band will tour the US, Canada, and Europe throughout 2015.
Shark Week - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Shark Week
After electrifying Washington, D.C. with its scorching live show for more than a year, Shark Week released its debut EP to critical acclaim in the summer of 2012, including being named The Deli Magazine’s best emerging D.C. artist of the year and earning slots at SXSW and 2013’s Sweetlife Festival.

This summer, the band follows its inaugural release with a AA-side 7” recorded during a sun-bleached January weekend in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The Santurce 7”, named after a neighborhood in San Juan, distills the raw energy of the four-piece band’s celebrated live show into a devastating package of blues and soul informed garage rock (not to mention a few Spaghetti Western guitar licks).

“Their sound is rooted deep in vintage blues and soul; frontman Ryan Mitchell has the kind of seen-it-all delivery that artists twice his age would kill for.” – NME

"The galloping ['Go West'] confidently strides over gruff percussion, fatalist lyrics, and taut guitar licks that wouldn't be out of place in a Sergio Leone pastiche piece." - Spin

“…bluesy, boozy garage-rock…Shark Week has earned its buzz the old-fashioned way: through live shows—and wild stage antics.” – Washington City Paper
Satellite Hearts - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Satellite Hearts
Satellite Hearts is pure rock 'n' roll, wild and dangerous, yet full of awe and childlike wonder. "It's like The Clash infused with unpolished 80's brat punk that trekked through the 60's while flirting with bell-bottomed psychedelics". At the end of the cosmic mind trip Satellite Hearts is truly the distinctive sound of Justin Pellecchia (guitar, vocals, and harmonica), Lucas Rinz (bass, vocals) and Keaton Thandi (drums, percussion, and vocals). Three beings who welcome you graciously into their world.
Established in December 2009 in Yardley, PA, Satellite Hearts have released two albums (Imperial Green & Desire Forces The Flow), one single (Doing Things Right), and one EP (Four To The Floor) respectively. The band continues to write and record in Philadelphia, PA.

Together they've performed at MusikFest 2013 in Toronto, CA, opened for Lauryn Hill (Fugees) in 2014 at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia, PA, backed up many different singers in various genres, and have gained a following along the east coast. Most notably they've opened up for Deen Ween from WEEN.
