Wreckless Eric - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Wreckless Eric
You can’t talk about Wreckless Eric without mentioning his enduring hit Whole Wide World – covered in stadiums and sheds from Aberdeen to Alabama – but there’s much more to him than just that.
With over 40 years of recording and touring behind him he shuns the dictates of nostalgia and doesn’t do comebacks for the simple reason that he never went away. His 2015 album ‘amERICa’ was an urgent reminder of what he’s about, and new album Construction Time & Demolition is a musically complex trawl through the psyche of a man with plenty to say and nothing to lose. It’s always been that way: loud, dissonant, lyrical and gently melodic – cogent music for desperate times.

The Improbables - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The Improbables
The Improbables initially formed in mid-1990s South Jersey out of a mutual and subsequently expanding love for Link Wray, Bo Diddley, Billy Childish, the Damned, Estrus Records, and the English Freakbeat comps. Spurred at the time by an oddly thriving Atlantic City independent music scene, the band honed their frenetic live set on the stage of the now defunct McGuire's Erin Bar and at a variety of Philadelphia venues. The Imps saw numerous lineup shifts over the ensuing years, disbanded for a while, and since reforming have established themselves as one of Philly's premier rock'n'roll trios. 2017 saw the release of their debut LP, “Object to be Destroyed,” on Baltimore’s Hidden Volume Records.

Equal parts 60-70's garage, soul, psychedelia and punk, the band's songs recall and preserve those moments in the life of rock 'n' roll when it was able to be self-aware without being self-conscious and when a good time was inevitable.
Bitter Bitter Weeks - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Bitter Bitter Weeks
Bitter bitter weeks started in the year 2000. Predominantly the work of Producer Brian McTear, the project became a band in time for the making of the third full length record, Peace is Burning Like a River (High Two Records) in 2006.

Bitter bitter weeks has included the help of players from many great bands including Apollo Sunshine, Mazarin, The Novenas, Matthew Sweet/The Velvet Crush, The A-sides, Audible, She-haw, and many many more.
