Kath Bloom - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Kath Bloom
The more you hear of Kath Bloom, the more you notice it’s not just the arresting voice, but the power of the songwriting. “Beautiful” is the typical response—the kind of beauty that comes from truth, musical and the deeply lyrical. There are no good comparisons, but if you like the deep well of Emmylou Harris, the more poignant lyrics of Lou Reed, the joy of Maher Shalal Hash Baz or even Joni Mitchell, you're kinda in the right zone. In reality, she’s simply Kath Bloom: horse whisperer, vocalist, mum, songwriter and a beautiful person.

Her albums recorded with Loren Mazzacane Connors in the 70′s/80′s are rare things, full of songs that float and melt into the ether. Impossibly beautiful and hard to find on LP, but check the reissues from a few years ago . In the 90′s Kath’s music was famously featured in Richard Linklater’s film Before Sunrise. Since then she has been busy writing and recording to great acclaim. Two new albums in the last few years and she and her songs where also honoured on a tribute album featuring Bill Callahan, Scout Niblett and Mark Kozelek.
Friendship - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Friendship
Friendship is a Philadelphia-based band comprised of Dan Wriggins, Peter Gill, Andrés Rodriguez, Mike Cormier, Evangeline Krajewski, Connor Stout, and Jon Samuels. Wriggins mumbles his character’s frustrations over the band’s twisted articulation of americana - droning synthesizers, steel flights, down-tuned guitars, and a blend of programmed and live percussion. Their new EP "F/V Hope" will come out May 27th, on Philadelphia's Sleeper Records.
Erin Durant - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Erin Durant
Erin Durant is a singer songwriter based in Brooklyn, NY. Durant has made two EPs and released her first full-length, Blueberry Mountain, on Flying Moonlight Records Nov 1.
Most Selfless Cheerleader - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Most Selfless Cheerleader
Most Selfless Cheerleader is the current project of Amelia Pitcherella, who started writing music on the guitar in 2015 while in school in Manhattan, taking cues from 90s songwriters like Scout Niblett and Liz Phair as well as power pop and jangle bands like Let’s Active and Guided By Voices. Now based in Philadelphia, she has expanded her solo set to include percussion and keys and occasionally performs with a rotating live band. Over the past year she has made two tours as a solo act alongside Connecticut’s Lady Queen Paradise and has a second tape of demos set for release in spring 2017.
