The Jamesons - (Set time: 12:00 AM)
The Jamesons
The Jamesons began in NYC around 2001. The songs were composed mainly by Gregjaw, dealing with issues of alienation, despair, and general angst (big surprise). Corey Gorey and DW Friend joined in as members, and a full length album was recorded soon after at Jacques Cohen's The Space studio in Poughkeepsie, NY. The Jamesons played a number of shows in NYC and the outlying areas before dissolving into The Brides.

Since that time, The Jamesons have gotten back together in 2012 to play some shows. We recently played a memorial benefit show and have decided to continue playing out when the opportunity presents itself.
Electric Black Horse - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Electric Black Horse
SEXY ROCK AND ROLL has officially made it's return! Loaded with Pomp, Hooks, Attitude, Energy and a Flash Style to match, EBH embodies all that makes Rock and Roll the Greatest Musical Platform in the World! This 4 piece combo from Earth mix Balls and Sparkle that hit Hard and True. Welcome......to ELECTRIC BLACK HORSE!

This New York City based quartet consists of Lead Singer/Rhythm Guitarist Michael Pate, whose over the top stage presence and glam-tastic style have made EBH's live shows must see happenings. Lead Guitarist Merx is every bit the guitar hero, bringing style and sensuality to the instrument of the likes that have been missing from Rock and Roll for too long. Bassist JT Hardy brings the Motown/R&B boogie along with incredible harmony vocalizing and a commanding stage demeanor that has to be felt to be believed. Drummer Extraordinaire Shane Considine brings an undeniable swinging backbeat that makes it impossible not to move and groove aiming right for the hips.

Together for less than a year, EBH has made impressive strides in a short amount of time on the NYC rock scene playing prestigious rooms such as Mercury Lounge, Arlene's Grocery and St. Vitus to packed rooms playing along side the likes of big, local names such as KILLCODE and GHOSTS OF EDEN.
Mancie - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Mancie
Mancie is a garage rock band led by Andrea Montgomery. Based in Williamsburg, they've enthusiastically been called "The Runaways meet Black Sabbath" at a recent show on the up-and-coming New York concert circuit, and the comparison is clear when they bring their gritty distorted guitar parts and emotionally-driven rock sound to the stage.
Rococode - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Rococode
Rococode is an evolving band of three Vancouver musicians. They have been working hard to bring fans into their world through a collective desire to make adventurous, badass and meaningful pop music. In fact, all the members of Rococode have ever done is make music

As for this music, it has evolved from a set of songs Laura Smith and Andrew Braun compiled over the last few years and has been shaped by a fairly random and extraordinary set of circumstances. From Andrew grading Laura's music history papers, to meeting the perfect rhythm section playing fake jazz at a wedding, to a chance encounter with producer to be Ryan Guldemond on the street, to Shaun Huberts getting some time off from Tegan and Sara just as Rococode started to get busy…

And as all things begin and end with the music, Rococode has set to making exciting new pop. Their debut album Guns, Sex & Glory is a little bit dark. A little bit playful. A little bit scary. A little bit thoughtful. All whipped together with the help of Mother Mother's Ryan Guldemond (co-producer), Andrew Braun (co-producer), engineer extraordinaire Shawn Penner (Mother Mother, Hannah Georgas, Elias) and mixer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Polyphonic Spree, The Walkmen).

While prepping their record for release, Rococode participated in the Peak Performance Project, finishing in the Top 20 and taking part in the rigourous intensive competition. They toured eastern Canada with Mother Mother. They get behind causes they believe in, such as Habitat for Humanity and Sing It Forward. Shaun wrote a witty book called How To Pack Like A Rock Star and successfully used Kickstarter to fund its printing. And they regularly post clever vignettes and live acoustic versions online, allowing us to probe deeper into their world.
