Orphan Jane - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
Orphan Jane
Orphan Jane is circus tents and gypsies, traditional blues and vaudeville, a dear friend of whom you're just a little afraid. Like a drink cut with sharp mandolins, wheezing accordions and trilling trumpets, chased by the driving lines of a standup bass. A vocalist equal parts Lotte Lenya and Little Mermaid with a band of hooligans growling close behind.
Gamblers - (Set time: 10:45 PM)
Gamblers
"Gamblers is a rock-and-roll gang of Brooklyn and Long Island natives. Led by Michael McManus, a hip-hop producer who has worked with many including Heems (Das Racist) and Meek Mill, and professional audio engineer Gary O'Keefe, who regularly produces content for Billboard. Gamblers combine catchy melodies with darker lyrical content that addresses themes such as alienation and addiction. With influences ranging from the Ramones, Frankie Valli and Blur, the result on their lead single "We're Bound to Be Together" sounds like an update to Olivia Tremor Control's "Holiday Surprises, 1, 2, 3". Gamblers' debut album "Small World" is expected in early 2017."

Sporkfly - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Sporkfly
Sporkfly is a place for Al Katkowsky to do whatever he likes. "Everyone should have such a place", says Al. He writes, sings and guitars, and makes as much cohesive sense out of his wide-ranging influences as he can. Brit pop melodies are complimented by jagged, Pixies-type rhythms in a way you’d never considered, yet make perfect sense. ”An unusual gene splice of styles -- the dreamy, chiming guitar atmospheres of bands like Ride and Loop and solid, blues guitar lines. Spacey and soulful, somehow the music of Sporkfly does fly. Somebody ought to put David Bowie and Albert King together on the next space shuttle mission so we can hear more of this." – Chad D
