Unconscious Disturbance - (Set time: 9:00 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.

Van Vega
Who is Van Vega?

The drop of water bursting on your desert-tongue is Van Vega. The hand on your starter cord, the propeller pounding air: these are Van Vega. The sound of a heart devouring itself is Van Vega.

We are a rock band formed in New York, 2015. We have only a frothing, barreling desire to overwhelm. We aim only to ascend into an ecstatic and exacting madness, and to deliver a love incomprehensible and un-wordable and savage.

Van Vega is music that cares.
The Shockwaves - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
The Shockwaves
It was inevitable that The Shockwaves would form. Raised on the rock gods of the 60s and 70s, brothers Keith and Eric Walpole have been developing their sound since they were kids. Their blues rock sound is as heavy as it is soulful and just as likely to make you smile as it is to make you stomp your feet. Having established themselves as a live band focused on true, honest, unplanned and unedited performances, the band sought to capture their live sound for their upcoming self titled EP. The result is a tight combination of soaring rhythms, explosive guitars and booming vocals that carry the energy of The Shockwaves.
