Late Sea
Late Sea is a NY based avant-rock trio led by composer and multi-instrumentalist Izzy Gliksberg and joined by internationally acclaimed trumpet player Sam Nester and the young up-and-coming jazz drummer Joe Peri.

Breaking boundaries between music and visuals, the group is known for their dark ambient grooves which carry Izzy’s enigmatic Leonard Cohen-like lyrics, Sam’s soaring trumpet and Joe Peri’s complex drumming skills. Alongside performances at House of Yes, Drom, The Spectrum, Apple Studios, Exapno, the Living Room, Pete's Candy Store, Silvana, MSM international webcast and more, the band is busy with making new music to classic films while releasing their own cutting edge music and videos.

In 2015 they were the first only music act ever to receive the prestigious Kevin Spacey Artist of Choice Award where they collaborated with Emmy nominated director Andrey Alistratov and Producer Hazuki Aikawa to create their much anticipated visual EP The Writers Trilogy.
Kills to Kisses - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Kills to Kisses
Praised as “Bjork-like” and “innovative” by the New York Times, Australian bassist Lisa Dowling has had her ears and fingers in the post-classical world of sound since she graduated from music school. Wanting to give her beloved instrument a fresh voice, she created kills to kisses to showcase the unique and surprising capabilities of an instrument that is usually not recognized for its virtuosity. Her music is bass-centric, but not in the ways you would expect; luscious, pulsating melodies soar over funky bass riffs and electronic drones creating a “brusquely subtle or exquisitely dense” (Inanna Naked) cinematic language that will beg of your hips. Her mastery of looping technology, "delicate, pure voice" (Woodstock Times), and serious chops create a veritable tour-de-force that is a breath of fresh air. Kills to kisses has been presented at the Berkshire Fringe Festival, the Contagious Sounds Series and regularly performs in and around NYC. Her debut album, lullaby apocalypse, was released in 2015 with Gold Bolus Recordings and has been acclaimed as 'darkly hypnotic, kinetic, distinctive and powerful' by the New York Music Daily.
Seasonal Beast - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
