Video Age
The New Orleans-based duo Video Age combines classic guitar-driven pop with synthesizer magic to create their upbeat spells of nostalgia. On their debut LP, Living Alone, members Ross Farbe and Ray Micarelli took timeless rock and roll forms to the home studio, adding some basement grit to shape their new wave atmosphere. Video Age performs live as a quartet. Be on the lookout for their follow-up album in spring 2018.
Abi Reimold - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Abi Reimold
Abi Reimold of Philadelphia writes dynamic, cathartic songs that are darkly colorful. Rough around the edges in a way that is more honest than careless, Reimold's music has a distinctly human quality about it. Unpredictable yet natural, Reimold's songwriting style builds tension using dissonance both harmonically and lyrically. Her voice rides a range of octaves and emotions, exploring dark inner worlds, adeptly contouring melodies to starkly vivid lyrics. Reimold has honed her songwriting ability and chops into an amalgam of rock influences – huge riffs are countered by thoughtful phrases and lyrics that are firmly rooted an introspective tradition. Her debut full-length Wriggling was released this January.

“There’s an interplay between restraint and dramatic fireworks, lyrics that beg to be unraveled and embraced, and towering, singular voices around which everything revolves.” --Stereogum
The Vernes - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
The Vernes
Born as the solo bedroom recording project of Bay Area native Matthew Gragg after a move to the East Coast in 2015, their debut LP is a collection of songs written during that first year.

Joined by longtime friends Fabian Mera (guitar), Cole Berggren (bass) and Philly native Pat Degan (drums), The Vernes turned their endearingly-out-of-tune, introspective recordings into a dynamic live show and began playing frequently in Philadelphia.

Their second LP (produced by American Trappist) is expected to be released in Spring 2018.
