05:45 pm Daniel Sage 

Daniel Sage is a real space-o-naut, hailing from the religious tobacco town of Winston-Salem, NC. Playing a form of psychedelic garage punk folk, the 23 year old Sage recently recorded an LP in Memphis with Grammy Award winning producer John Hampton (White Stripes, Gin Blossoms, Cramps, Replacements) titled “Wildlife”.

06:15 Charles Ellsworth 

Charles Ellsworth and Vincent Draper‘s Salt Lake City; A Love Story is a triumph for American songwriting. The pair spin ten stories that stretch out across the deserts of the southwest, blending outlaw grit with a raw streak of self-awareness. 

07:00 The Noise FM 

Formed by brothers Alex and Austin Ward, the Chicago- based indie-rock trio The Noise FM has toured the country with multiple stops at SXSW, CMJ, Summerfest in Milwaukee, Middle of the Map Festival in Kansas City, The Underground Music Showcase in Denver, and shared the stage with the likes of Minus The Bear, Alkaline Trio, Glasvegas, Presidents of the United States of America, Biffy Clyro and more.

07:45 Wild Pink 

…The way you feel will make it real…

08:15 The Dream Logic 

The Dream Logic is a groundbreaking new jam fusion band fueled by New York born and bred multi-instrumentalist and composer Charles Compo. In 2012 Compo caught fire on YouTube and the college radio circuit with his solo effort, “Foolish Pleasure” and now he’s back to turn up the heat with a fresh mix of jam, funk, and rock n roll with The Dream Logic. 

09:00 Dreamers 

DREAMERS (members of Motive) is a unique brand of grunge that is nostalgic for a space somewhere between art-school eccentric and the late 1970s punk scene. 

09:40 Terrible Terrible 

Terrible Terrible is an ambitious quintet that combines naturalistic and contemporary shades of the musical spectrum to create a new aesthetic using synthesizers, guitars, varied percussion, and three voices in close harmony. 

10:15 Bree and the Whatevers 

Brooklyn based Bree And The Whatevers is a project spawned from the songwriting and musical vision of powerhouse chanteuse Bree Klauser. The core of this collaboration is Bree, her brother Matthew Klauser (guitar) and Dan Kessler (bass/keys). Their Blues Rock vibe, paired with a cabaret aesthetic, create a high energy, cathartic entertainment experience. 
We hope you enjoy 😉 

10:50 Ugly Club 

Reaching psychedelic highs comparable to MGMT and Radiohead, the delicate inclusion of synth pop, indie-rock, and Prince-eqsue neo-funk, The Ugly Club sends listeners into an unanticipated daydream.

11:20 Mainland 

Analog synths, jangly guitars, tacos, bbq, fireworks, cheap 35mm cameras, bedroom demos, nyc, roadtrips, william eggleston, jim jaramusch, david lynch, twin peaks, marfa/texas. 

12:10 Bushwick Hotel 

The Bushwick Hotel came together in the summer of 2012 when Gregory Ferreira (vocals/guitar/keyboard/percussion) was recording his second solo album, Graffiti of the Young Man’s Mind, in his Bushwick recording studio, Live By the Sword. Gregory started playing professionally at the age of nine in Boston, playing with multiple bands over the years, including The Chainletter, which was nominated for a Boston Music Award. Being an accomplished producer and sound engineer, Gregory moved to Brooklyn in 2006 and started Live By the Sword Studio. While in Brooklyn Gregory has played in Missing Ships, recorded his first solo album, The Suitcase Album, done session work, and has produced music for local musicians that range from jazz to hip hop. In his typical fashion, he serendipitously assembled a band of local Brooklyn musical misfits including Matt La Von (tenor, alto, and soprano sax/clarinet/background vocals), Erik Naslund (bass/background vocals), Rudy Temiz (slide guitar/background vocals), and Ben Teters (drums/background vocals). What resulted from a crazy summer and a straight month of cohabitation and recording at Live By The Sword Studio is a truly original contemporary interpretation of a rock album and a strong bond between band members of which most of whom had never played together before.
