Cruture - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Cruture
CRUTURE is a NYC based alternative Hip-Hop duo consisting of rapper Phaze4000 and drummer/producer Cru Jones. They masterfully weave together a sonic backdrop of boom-bap era hip hop, soul, funk, jungle, drum&bass and Grime to create a new sound that is both unique and familiar, retro and futuristic. Cru Jones triggers samples and orchestrates tracks while simultaneously playing live drums as Phaze 4000 cleverly and effortlessly drops dagger sharp wordplay and coasts over beats at light speed, often changing cadences and flows at the blink of an eye.

They have opened for The Roots, Slick Rick, The Rza , Jamie Lidell, Michna, and many more.

Stereo Off - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Stereo Off
Stereo Off formed in late 2012, around what began as a solo project by lead singer Sebastian, and evolved initially into a five-piece band that combined indie rock, classical and electronic influences. They played shows mainly in and around NYC and had music featured in various short films that made festivals around the US.

After this they released their debut EP New York in 2014. This was followed up in late 2015 with their 2nd EP The Long Hot Winter which helped them secure spots at various venues including the CMJ festival. After some lineup changes in the past year, 2016 brought on a new sound, which is clear on new single "Sunsetting" from their third EP that is being released in 2017.

The current band works as a three-piece featuring the aforementioned Sebastian and bassist/guitarist Niall collaborating on the songs. He also brings a more indie rock sound to the band, as he has played in various bands in the UK and US prior, while Sebastian brings a more digital vibe to the table. When Stereo Off needed a thicker sound for the stage, Bridget brought her skills in viola from the Julliard Masters program and mixes this in with guitar, depending on the song or part.
Mystic Monkey - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Mystic Monkey
Rump shaking tunes for these crazy times. Mystic Monkey is funky jazzy and fierce in the land of rock and roll. Crafty tunes and tight jams coming from Milan, Tel Aviv, and The Bronx. Vlad's king beat, Matty' tasty keys, and Yoav's silky lead frame it all for Uncle Funky and his bottom machine.
