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 the distinctive sound of Justin Pellecchia
(guitar, vocals, and harmonica), Lucas Rinz (bass, vocals) and Keaton
Thandi (drums, percussion, and vocals) who combine an eclectic amount
of influences with unwavering honesty.

"[They sound like] The Clash infused with unpolished 80’s brat punk
that trekked through the 60’s while flirting with bell-bottomed
psychedelics and heavy rock n’ roll jives."

-Jerk Magazine

"Trying to pinpoint Satellite Hearts’ sound is like running a marathon
without any training - it’s simply foolish. You can say the Philly
three-piece exudes the heart and soul of classic rock, but that
doesn’t give props to the strands of clap-along sing-song acousto-punk
strewn throughout. You can say that they’re pure rock ‘n’ roll, but
that doesn’t do justice to the rough-hewn climb of ’80s indie
underground raggedly sewn into their sonic fabric."

-Annamarya Scaccia of NYC’s Deli Magazine
