Hey Anna - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Hey Anna
Based out of Brooklyn and New Jersey, Hey Anna is an indie-pop five-piece made up of sisters Erin, Anna and Katie Rauch-Sasseen, featuring Matthew Langner on drums and Jamie DiTringo on lead guitar. As a band, they seamlessly mingle the warmth of a seaside summer with the cacophonous urban landscape of NYC. With the blending of heavy guitars and whimsical vocals, NYLON describes them as, "the sunny, feel-good band we've been waiting all winter to find."

With the July 2015 release of their debut album, Run Koko, Hey Anna have been played across international airwaves, with SPiN noting the band is, "a family affair that specializes in ethereal harmonies reminiscent of '00s indie-pop greats Feist, Chairlift, and School of Seven Bells." In November of 2014 they were invited to play several showcases in Tokyo, following the release of their double EP, Dance Until Three via Japan-based ThisTime Records.

Hey Anna has been a staple of the NYC music scene for years, with performances at the Northside Festival, Rooftop Films, the NYC Marathon, Break Thru Radio, and CMJ. Their songs play in major retail stores and have been featured in indie films Jane Wants A Boyfriend and That's Not Us.
Nadia Kazmi - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Nadia Kazmi
Nadia Kazmi, releases her new single, 'Gold Into Dust', this fall from her upcoming full length album of the same name, slated for 2017. The Canadian artist of Indian/Pakistani decent, is equally influenced by her homegrown Canadian prairie roots and her love of New York City, her second home for the last 10 years. Her sound interweaves 70s and 80s vintage rock with rich lyrics and sparse arrangements that stay with you long after first listen.
Weakened Friends - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Weakened Friends
Weakened Friends is an indie rock band from Boston Massachusetts and Portland Maine. Comprised of members from other New England based bands The Box Tiger (Sonia Sturino and Cam Jones) and The Field Effect (Annie Hoffman) the trio crafts whimsical catchy noise pop sound which is uniquely energetic and jovial. Formed in spring of 2015 the band already has a debut E.P under their belts called "Gloomy Tunes" released in September 2015 with plans to release a follow up E.P in early 2016.

" "Gloomy Tunes" is a gleeful throwback to the badass lady rock of the 1990s and early 2000s, that zips along at pop-punk speed but ends up sounding more like the kid sister to Liz Phair or current snotty punk trendsetters Potty Mouth." - Bangor Daily News

"Homegrown furious noise rock" - Boston Herald

"Their new EP, Gloomy Tunes, a collection of four upbeat, supercharged songs that lyrically reflect the confusion and chaos of modern life" - Vanyaland
