XNY
Pam and Jacob met as next door neighbors in Boston, MA. After months of hearing each other practice through the wall, they came together and formed XNY. XNY breaks the boundaries of genres. They have managed to combine passion and simplicity into a sound that is both unique and palatable. XNY challenges experience and in return creates their own.

Bella's Bartok
Deep from within the bloated bowels of the bohemian dance-punk scene (ha!), comes Bella's Bartok! A new (old?) band bringing the desperate wail of the blues, the melodic timbre of a choir and the block-rocking beats of your favorite Hungarian dance hall. Seven piece, multi-instrumentalist groove-making extra-ordinaires from Northampton, MA.
The Mayor of Bad News - (Set time: 9:00 PM)

Chamber Band (Residency) - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Chamber Band (Residency)
Sounding equal parts The Decemberists and the White Stripes (by way of Danny Elfman), Chamber Band – a name taken ironically, we’re told – endlessly strives to strike the right balance between playing no-frills indie rock and telling a good goddamn story. The Brooklyn five-hander has a propensity towards keeping it brief, burning through their jams with hooky, minimalist musicality, stopping only to guzzle their drinks or poll the audience about “where the Catan at.” They’re currently playing and promoting their debut album, Deities – eleven sticky tracks about love and heartbreak in the world of Dungeons & Dragons.
Joshua and the Giant - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Joshua and the Giant
Joshua and the Giant is an independent synth-pop piano project out of Brooklyn, NY.
