Talk Normal: This duo from Brooklyn, NY pick up where no wave music left off. They are not just an imitation of Lydia Lunch, though; these ladies push the envelope. A simple drums and guitar set-up packs a heavy, edgy punch for a dark, hard-hitting show.
Eric Hnatow: Local legend and serious contender for the hardest working man in show business title, Eric Hnatow plays some seriously fun experimental electronic pop. There are strong influences on his sound from the likes of Dan Deacon and his Baltimore ilk, but Hnatow makes the sound all his own. It’s impossible to stand still when he takes the stage.
The Novels: Hailing from Northampton, The Novels are a more traditional rock band, but don’t think traditional means boring. Taking cues from The Kinks and incorporating plenty of solid melodies and handclaps, The Novels are the perfect pop edition to the show’s line-up
Whoarfrost: Whoarfrost combines elements of free jazz and psychedelia with hints of dub, jam band and experimental sounds and angry lyrics thrown in. Although that list is an ambitious combination of genres and styles, the dudes of Whoarfrost pull it off.
