Ghost Beach - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Ghost Beach
Ghost Beach are the latest pop pioneers to set the internet ablaze with only a couple singles floating around and without any major label backing. The New York-based duo of Josh Ocean and Eric "Doc" Mendelsohn take their '80s influences one step further with Ghost Beach. Only a few months old, they've already perfected a retro-future aesthetic that sounds like the holy trifecta of The Police, Depeche Mode, and Daft Punk, with a little Passion Pit sprinkled on top for good measure. Josh plays the jilted lover with vocal panache as Eric's soaring synths, guitars and forever young harmonies are plucked right out of Neverland. Ghost Beach is more about a time than a place, and that time is now.
- Andrew Hwang (Neon Gold)
Triple Cobra - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Triple Cobra
Triple Cobra play summer jams for the end of the world. Through a baroque haze of billowing synthesizers, pounding tribal beats, five-part harmonies, and soaring guitars, the Brooklyn-based septet delivers wildly infectious psychedelic pop anthems with an almost operatic grandeur; all beneath a dazzling veil of bright lights, whirling snow and a storm of confetti.

Their upcoming album "The Last Summer Ever" is a collection of apocalyptic summer jams which explore the impending end of days; the grief of knowing our time is near, a last chance at an old love, the chaos of our final moments, and the ultimate communion of all the spirits of the human race: past, present and future.
Frogg - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
