Modern Diet - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Modern Diet
Modern Diet’s music is never fictitious. Jake Cheriff, Bernardo Ochoa, and Dan Hemerlein blend literary influences, Ancient Greek mythology and philosophy, and keen images into their musings on life around them. Their music varies from bright and energetic to disarming and vulnerable. Together with various drummers and collaborators, Modern Diet draws sounds form all over the acoustic, electric, and digital spectrums to create a truly compelling, genre-defying performance. Modern Diet has released two EPs and one full length album. They aim to release their sophomore album, Sit Down And Dance sometime this year.
Pecas - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Pecas is the nom de canción of singer-songwriter Sandy Davis. Meaning freckles in Spanish, pecas is a nod to Davis' brief upbringing in Madrid, where she lived peacefully as the only redheaded creature for miles. In 2014 Davis released the self-recorded album, Dwelling, and pecas was born. Her music is both melancholy and ethereal, an experience akin to walking through a Dali landscape, never quite knowing whether you've entered a dream or a post-apocalyptic hellspace. Pecas' live performance features Davis jumping between guitar and keyboard, backed by an all star cast: Owen Shaer (bass), John Morisi (drums), Jake Harms (guitar). A new album is set to be released in late 2017. ​
