Frankie Vado
If you don't know Frankie Vado, just listen to his lyrics. The words are ripped right out of his personal storybook. From the streets of Kensington in Philadelphia where he grew up to his professional life as a rapper working in North Philly, Frankie writes about what he knows.

He started rapping when he was in ninth grade in cyphers throughout the halls and cafeteria of his school, Kensington High. At first it was an outlet, a way for him to deal with the constant relocation and detachment experienced from living in foster homes.

He knew an education was important, so Frankie reluctantly put music on the backburner, while he earned two bachelor's degrees from Penn State University. Frankie graduated from PSU in 2009 and his music career began. Since then he's been working with his friend and producer "Phoe Notes" to develop their sound.

After 5 long years of struggle and rejection from major labels, they have decided to release Frankie Vado's debut album, "Yesterday's Reject" independently.
Joey Stix Experiment - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Joey Stix Experiment
Joey Stix Experiment is half of the music in my soul matched with the
music and sounds that I love, the Experiment is in the BAND and the

There's always a space in each song where we create new energy and
vibes that we ourselves haven't experienced, that makes an infinite
creative Magnet.
Normal Gene - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
Normal Gene
Normal Gene is an Independent soul singer & songwriter from Philly.
“The Quanny EP” is out now!
Dolores - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Dolores' songs are multilayered.

There are catchy pop hooks that don’t repeat themselves, dance grooves
that dissolve into melancholy noise, soulful verses that erupt into
punk rock ballads.

It is maximalist pop music for the ADHD crowd.

The Kensington-based band puts on thoughtful and high-energy shows
that have been described in The Fanzine as “visceral and raw, a sound
that made the crowd throb.”

Catering each setlist to fit the bill, Dolores has shared the stage
with dance bands (MINKA), indie rock groups ( Flat Mary Road ),

as well more straightforward rockers (Oldermost, Dulls).
