Mansions and Junipers
"Mansion Beach is house built around the psyche, that knows your steps and remembers your childhood, the floor creaking around you despite knowing all the quiet spots. Mansion Beach is a place where once the sun sets bonfires are lit, a ravenous party begins full of green-eyed goddesses, the looming dangers of sketchy back street shakedowns, dancing alone you know it's you who ain't sharp enough to cut the air, and in the cold sand of the late night the intrepid hero will ask to use your telephone. In a full listen, the next far-off dawn appears and the confrontation of the city skyline in one direction and the endless beach in the other fills bleary minds with remembrances, perfect and scary dreamscapes, dark fantasies and yearning love. Mansion Beach is a Ulyssean synthesis of our youth, exploring the emotional time and space between that first Genesis dawn and our last. It delivers us, like rich blue jet-set sea-glass, to that high- watermark of experience where all of the above meet. Upon the dawn of your truly opened eyes, Mansion Beach will infiltrate you. It will destroy your discipline." - P.C. / NYC / MMXI

"Mansions and Junipers sound like that reclusive goth kid that came out of her shell and blossomed into a healthy adult life, and is now wracked by second thoughts. This is full ensemble pop music with a vocal reminiscent of David Gahan, agile basslines and lush percussion" –popgun / MMXI
The Goodnight Darlings - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The Goodnight Darlings
The Goodnight Darlings fuse Kat Auster's pop-rock vocals (think Madonna, Blondie, Chrissie Hynde) with Wilson Jaramillo's world-music, hip-hop flavored beats (think Jay-Z meets The Clash), and Wilson's lush New Wave guitars (think The Cure). Kat Auster is also a Juilliard Theater grad which reflects in her provocative visceral live shows, and in her poetic storytelling style lyrics. Wilson has extensive touring experience with The Fugees and Wyclef Jean in arenas around the world. He uses 11 different effect pedals and is nicknamed "The Scientist" because of his experimentation with soundscapes. Together they create "dance-punk electricity". The songs are sultry sexy and melancholy--hauntingly danceable. Genre is Indie Pop, Rock, Post-Punk.
Communication Corporation - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Communication Corporation
The Communication Corporation is a musical organisation providing the common American with uncontrollable movements in the pants/skirt area. As a business, they have successfully harnessed the power of a distorted keytar, bass and drums to combine them into a devastating sonic dance party machine. Based on other business models such as The Talking Heads, Gogol Bordello, Beck, and Muse, The Communication Corporation write finely crafted synth rock about love, war, politics and shaking it to the left and right.
