Unconscious Disturbance - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Unconscious Disturbance
UNCONSCIOUS DISTURBANCE (U.D.) is a Brazilian/American rock band formed in Brooklyn, NY and is comprised of brothers Daniel and Kiko Freiberg (São Paulo), Tim Haggerty (Boston), and Danny Dahan (Washington DC). U.D. made their second release on September 1, 2016, entitled Let it Rain. For fans of Muse, Royal Blood and The Mars Volta, Let it Rain brings a reinvented and more concise sound in comparison to the band's first album Shooting at the Moon (2014), and was followed by a 40-date USA tour in August, September and October. Between their first release and now, U.D. played over 150 shows in over 20 US states, Canada, and Brazil. In February, 2016, the band was invited for the second time to play Brazil’s largest independent rock festival, "Palco do Rock" in Salvador, Bahia - this time as headliners. With a significant part of their fans-base in Brazil, U.D. has also played important festivals there such as Porão do Rock with Muse and Suicidal Tendencies, and was officially nominated as one of five of Brazil's best upcoming rock bands by Monsters of Rock Festival. U.D. has received critical praise by The Huffington Post, PureVolume, Red Bull Music, AOL Noisecreep, and many other media outlets. They were selected by New York's "The Village Voice" as a "must see" show.Between their first release and now, U.D. has played over 100 shows in over 15 US states, Canada, and Brazil.

J and the 9s - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
J and the 9s
j and the 9s are a hard hitting, costumed flute rock experience from Brooklyn, New York. breeding together rock and roll riffs, the raw sound and agility of punk, lyrical spontaneity, glam visuals, a rock flute, and a very interactive stage show. often referenced as a mix of some of the most influential rockers from the 70’s: led zeppelin, iggy pop, and the runaways, j and the 9s strip back to reveal the beast that music once was: true rock 'n roll that is not so politely thrown at you on a dripping, glittering platter.
Outer Stylie - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Outer Stylie
Outer Stylie is a rock band located in the creative vortex that is the Pioneer Valley of Western, Massachusetts. Although the name originates with the release of their self titled album in 2008, the band really came to fruition in 2014 around the current line-up. Up until this point the band really searched for their sound. This is evident through many line-up changes and the vast difference in sound between albums. Their search equates to evolution, and their new album, Puzzles, scheduled for release Saturday, April 16th at the Iron Horse in Northampton, MA, fully exemplifies the uniqueness of their sound, equal parts hard rock, psychedelic, groove, and soul.

Outer Stylie's presence in the Western Mass music scene is undeniable, having regularly packed the areas best clubs, as well as directly supporting nationally touring acts such as, Kung Fu, Turkuaz, and Consider the Source at Pearl Street Nightclub.However since 2014 they have picked up much more steam regionally, gigging and gaining fans all over the Northeast including Boston and NYC. Much of their success has come through the festival circuit of the Northeast including their hometown festival, Strangecreek/Wormtown, where they've been known to draw some of the largest crowds of the weekend. The main attraction to Stylie at festivals is that they sound vastly different than the rest of a given line-up. Focusing heavily on the song and improvising a few times throughout the set instead of every song, has made their live sets energetic, honest, and thrilling while still holding true to great songwriting. These guys bleed rock n roll and when you see them on stage performing, it is impossible to deny this.
Mighty Kind - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Mighty Kind
Mighty Kind was reborn in the fall of 2015 when four mighty souls reunited with a shared love for all things kind. They reemerged from their day jobs in the urban jungle and ventured back into the wilderness - this time with longer hair and a new fellow troubadour. Once back outside amongst the night - full moon throbbing; they began chanting, striking chords, banging drums, and stomping their bare feet upon the earth.
The fire in the center of their circle glowed so big and so bright that eventually the surrounding bush was set ablaze. Realizing that they had reignited their own inner flames, they made their way back to the edge of the forest. This time with a mission and a message... It was time to Be Mighty. It was time to Be Kind. It was time to share what they had rediscovered.
