pILLOW tHEORY - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
pILLOW tHEORY
pILLOW tHEORY is a NYC quartet who delivers a high-powered dynamic sound while successfully genre hopping under the modern rock umbrella (metal, punk, pop, electro.) They’ve blazed the stage opening for TV On The Radio, Living Colour and Ninjasonik and the band has received accolades from Rolling Stone, The Source, Village Voice, Yahoo, The Deli, and BRM. pILLOW tHEORY’s songs have been licensed for ABC television, SONY PSP and Tap Tap Revenge. Lead vocalist and guitarist Kelsey, guitarist Danos Ettrick, bassist Joaquin C De Baca and drummer Dave Burnett are all jazz rejects who were tainted by and converted to NYC’s underground rock scene.

pILLOW tHEORY collaborated with sonic genius Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies, NIN) for their sophomore album OUTPATIENCE in 2007. Working with Albini on OUTPATIENCE allowed the band to successfully explore a full raw sound. The album earned the band critical praise and a strong loyal audience. In July 2011, pILLOW tHEORY released their new EP titled MELTDOWN, produced by Slim Willy (Ferrari Snowday, Ninjasonik, LL Cool J.) For the band’s next sonic chapter, front man/composer Kelsey mixed pILLOW tHEORY’s organic sound with unexpected refinement. Legendary producer Ron Saint Germain (Muse, Tool, Soundgarden) came on board to mix the first single and opening track “Blisters & Buppies.” With an unforgettable chorus and an infectious guitar riff, this song has quickly become a fan favorite at live shows.
Brother Reverend - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Brother Reverend
The Brother Reverend's new record, "Ike Turner Kills Fascists" is a fourteen song LP that boasts vigorous song writing & solid musicianship.

The band says the new LP is merely a hint of what is to come. Their often-stated goal is to make a record better than "Love Child."
White Collar Crime - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
White Collar Crime
White Collar Crime features guitar-driven singer/songwriter rock. A New York City fixture, the music features the imagery unique to the City and the forces that drive it.

WCC's latest CD, Floor, Aisle, Room is another step in the progression of those forces providing the next chapter in the ongoing conversation between the band and its listeners. This time around, the band adds new musical dimensions and enlists its friends to widen the bandwidth (Eric "Roscoe" Ambel and Ann Klein) which really turned out well so you should feel enthusiastically invited to come join the conversation--
Ann Klein - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
