Grandchildren - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Grandchildren emerged in 2008 as pioneers of Philadelphia’s underground music scene known for their
unique cinematic blend of pop, folk and electronica. Their first three releases chart a sonic evolution
from the lo-fi Everlasting (2010), to the symphonic Golden Age (2013) to the pop-driven ZUNI (2015).
Songwriter Aleks Martray attributes his eclectic sound to a nomadic coming of age across three
continents and a decade of touring, during which he met frontwoman Shari Bolar. The couple’s soulful
harmonies and on stage chemistry came to define the band’s new sound, featured on the
self-titled release Grandchildren (2019).
Spaceship Aloha - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Spaceship Aloha
SPACESHIP ALOHA is the hyper-buoyant solo project from drummer/producer Christopher Sean Powell (AKA Pow Pow, PayPow, Powserati). SA’s first release, Universe Mahalo, Vol. 1, presents a kaleidoscope of lush melodies and joyous electronic rhythms inspired by Hawaii’s musical landscape. Intended for non-stop dancing, the live show is bursting with elements of vibrant addictive beats, refreshing sounds, and adventurous improvisation - all performed on an ecosystem of synthesizers, sequencers, electronic drums, and live percussion. Spaceship Aloha is the next generation of Powell’s explosive performance style, first seen in the avant-garde art rock ensemble Need New Body, followed by the experimental pop band Man Man.
White Bike - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
White Bike
White Bike is the brainchild of creative genius Daniel Schlett and potentially whoever he feels like collaborating with. Might be a vocalist, might be a trumpet through a Kaos pad, an improvisational organ and a guitar through a chain of effects pedals. His style is like a box of chocolates but you always know it’s going to be delicious. When Daniel isn’t making his own fuego, he is helping other people produce their’s as chief engineer at Strange Weather Studios in Brooklyn, NY.
