Bill Bartholomew - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
Bill Bartholomew
"Brooklyn's Bill Bartholomew is a songsmith and natural performer. Whether backed by his full band or playing solo with his acoustic guitar, Bartholomew always delivers his unique blend of folk/rock/Americana with captivating intensity."
Hounds Basket - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Lion in the Mane - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Lion in the Mane
After several years of writing, recording and touring with bands from Florida, Jon Masters (Believe You Me, Woodale, Made for the Silver Screen) sought new opportunities and a change of scenery. Determined, he left the warm breezy palms of the Sunshine State for the vibrant unpredictable concrete jungle of New York City.

Upon Jon's arrival he responded to an advertisement for a lead singer posted by New York native bassist Henry D' Allacco (Last Dying Word). After nailing the audition Jon discovered that additional band members were needed. Jon then convinced fellow musician/guitarist Dmitry Libman (Believe You Me, Winter Park, Hillside) to make the move to New York where they, for the past few years, continue to work day jobs while relentlessly writing and recording each night at their NYC loft studio. Other roster changes (Drummer Jason Juliette's departure and the untimely loss of guitarist Joe Calvert) led Jon to contact Florida based drummer extraordinaire Johnny Coryn (Radio Reset) to drop everything and move to the Big Apple.

Originally known as "The Atlas", "Lion in The Mane" brilliantly executed the debut of the band's incredible wall of sound to a sizeable passionate audience at The Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York on December 14, 2010. Word of the band then began to spread to radio as well as major and independent record labels.

The harsh sincerity of the lyrics and vocals, spontaneous yet powerful guitar melodies, a solid, driving, and supportive bass along with the charismatic and flashy chops that roar from the drums put "Lion in The Mane" on the "short list" as they have established themselves as one of today's most promising new bands. With that promise, the band will hit the studio with their producer William Wittman this spring, followed by a summer tour.

Prepare to experience the enormous roar of "Lion in The Mane".
Nemes - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Nemes is an unquestionably unique 5 piece rock/folk band from Worcester, Massachusetts. Led by duel frontmen Dave Anthony (Guitar/Vocals) and Josh Knowles (Violin/Vocals), the band brings what Worcester Magazine calls “a nuclear power plant's worth of energy” to any venue they enter. Energy isn't the only thing Nemes is focused on though. The band's songwriting, involving memorable lyrics and catchy hooks, will always be at the forefront, followed by a wide array of top-notch musicianship.

Since being named one of Alternative Press' top 5 unsigned bands in 2010, Nemes has embarked on two tours of the Eastern US, continued building a local fanbase, and most recently released a full length album. The album is entitled “Don't Flush Me” and showcases the many sides that Nemes has to offer. On the disc, the band seamlessly transitions from arena-sized rock songs to violin-plucking tunes with just as much emotional intensity.

The bottom line (literally), is that Nemes is motivated, capable, and ready to take on any audience put in front of them.
