Bel Heir - (Set time: 11:15 PM)
Bel Heir
In a year marked by creative release methods and monochrome aesthetic, Bel Heir were near the top of the heap in both regards. Releasing new songs on the first Tuesday of every month, the band gave listeners new guilty pleasures on a consistent basis in the form of their irresistibly catchy brand of dark pop.” – When The Gramophone Rings

Bel Heir, an alternative, electro-pop band hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has received major attention within the past year. In 2013, the bands method of releasing new singles each month grabbed the attention of many notable music blogs. A spot on When The Gramophone Rings’ list of “51 New Bands That Will Make 2014 Awesome”, numerous song premieres on Mostly Junk Food and coverage from Neon Gold and All Things Go are just a few of the dozens of features Bel Heir has acquired within the past year.

After touring with the likes of Magic Man and Sir Sly, Bel Heir has gained a following that are anxious to see the band live. Their web presence is also skyrocketing as evidenced by the cumulative 600,000+ views on YouTube, the 100,000+ Soundcloud streams on their song “Kiss The Devil (Just A Gent Remix)” and a track trending on Soundcloud Alternative.

The band is continuing to stay busy in 2014. While spending time in the studio working on their debut record, they will play key one-offs and select tours and festivals.
Cruiser - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Cruiser’s humble beginnings can be traced to 2012 in a Philadelphia bedroom as the solo recording project of Andy States. Cruiser’s self-titled 6-song EP quickly gathered attention online, and States rapidly assembled a trio of friends to help bring his songs from the bedroom to the stage.

With a sensibility for summer-inspired pop, coupled with a knack for crafting hooky melodies, Cruiser's EP became a staple on many playlists of both fan and critic alike.

“Kidnap Me” represents the first song collaboratively written by Cruiser as a cohesive unit. While true to form, “Kidnap Me” is Cruiser evolved; still embracing the summery, feel-good sound of the 2012 material, yet displaying a bit of introspection and newfound contemplative restraint.
Dangerous Creatures - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Dangerous Creatures
Philly/Oakland based duo of longtime friends who spent time apart and, in their resulting loneliness, accidentally created some chill, dream vacation vibes that we've been calling r&beach.

While spending a few years apart -- one living in Philly and traveling around Europe, and the other living in Oakland and riding his bike across the US – we sent musical ideas back and forth to stay in touch. With no intention of doing anything with the music but staying friends, we discovered we had accidentally put together a collection of songs that conveyed a similar atmosphere of chill, dream vacation vibes and titled it Everybody Week under the name Dangerous Creatures.
