Manwell Goodspeed - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Primarily focused as an indie rock trio, Manwell Goodspeed infuses the long lost raw tone of grunge with rolling melodies that captivate to generate their signature sound. Based out of Williamsburg, the band draws on the energy of the Brooklyn scene, yet the sound they deliver is neither governed nor contained by the milieu from which it arises. While Manwell maintains its own sonic identity, one may note their musical influences shining in the details; a core of solid rock vis-à-vis the Chili Peppers along with an exploratory approach to songwriting with all the boldness of The Flaming Lips. As does Nirvana, the trio produces songs that convey an emotional depth yet all the while keep it interesting and hip in the vein of Beck.
Fighting In The Streets - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Fighting In The Streets is a fiery band of musicians who utilize jazz improvisation, funky grooves, and smooth showmanship through video game music. We play songs from Super Mario Bros, Sonic the Hedgehog, Street Fighter 2, Mega Man, Castlevania, and more. The band consists of five members including, reeds, guitar,keys,bass and drums. The goal of the band is to play music we have listened to subconsciously as kids and bring to life with new arrangements and pure RAW energy.
