The Bowery Riots - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
The Bowery Riots
New NYC indie band, The Bowery Riots, are out to cause some distruption on the music scene. Their latest single, “My Time Has Come,” boasts a mean guitar riff and a natural grit that just screams rock and roll.

That would make sense coming from an act that lists “the history of music, fashion, film, and New York City” as their biggest influence. These guys are part Jack White, part Black Keys, and 100% raw, fighting spirit. With a full-length album in the works, we can’t wait to see what’s to come!
Linfinity - (Set time: 9:30 PM)

"Sounding like Eddie Veddar and Tiny Tim Harmonizing in a meat cooler, Dylan Von Wagner's shivering warble grabs you straightaway."
-- Will Hermes, Rolling Stone

New York based LINFINITY have confirmed a fall 2012 release for their sophomore album, Lights in Cairo. Produced by Kevin McMahon (Real Estate, Titus Andronicus) and mixed by Matt Boynton (MGMT, Kurt Vile) Lights in Cairo is the follow up to 2010's Martian's Bloom released on American Myth Recordings.

The five piece band have made their first single "Miles" available for streaming/sharing via SoundCloud

The praise that followed Martian's Bloom came from the likes of Rolling Stone and Pitchfork, the latter boasting "Von Wagner is a commanding presence, expressive and elegantly bombastic" and the Washington Post noting their unique songwriting "...can't be categorized as any one style; it's timeless."

Since the release of their debut album, the band toured the US and played CMJ, their set catching the attention of The Wall Street Journal to write the band's sound is similar to "the offspring of David Byrne and the Band: The New York quintet's songs are compact yet anthematic."

Recorded in upstate New York, Lights in Cairo is Linfinity's strongest and most ambitious work yet. Led by principal songwriter and lead singer Dylan Von Wagner, newcomers Mark Evan Roth (guitar), Justin Repasky (keys) and Joe Zdaa (drums) join veteran bassist Grant Zubrisky.

A release date, final track listing and additional details will be announced shortly.
The Dough Rollers - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
The Dough Rollers
The Dough Rollers started in 2008 when Jack Byrne and Malcolm Ford bonded over a mutual appreciation for blues music. Initially the band started as a two piece but quickly expanded to fit fiddler and singer Julia Tepper, just in time to start exploring other kinds of music the group was being influenced by. A self-titled album comprised of blues, country and just about everything in between was recorded and released in late 2009. After some time as a three-piece, the lineup returned to just Byrne and Ford so they could re-focus on their love for early blues music. An album, Someday Baby, made up of the blues that Byrne and Ford had crafted playing countless shows around the country, followed shortly thereafter and was released in a limited run. After the release of their sophomore album, the nomadic duo evolved again, though this time into a quartet, complete with bass and drums. This sudden change may have seemed unexpected, but it allowed the group to blend different influences and genres of music into something totally distinct. At first, the band featured a rotating rhythm section, but the lineup is now cemented with Josh Barocas on bass and Kyle Olson on drums. Recently the band has toured with Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp and Queens of the Stone Age and released a 7” on July 9th, 2013 via Jack White’s Third Man Records. Their new EP "Gone Baby Gone" is out this spring via Third Man with a single produced by Josh Homme (Queens of The Stone Age).
