Woodhead - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Woodhead
Born of the rich tradition of NYC art-rock bands, "Woodhead" formed in 2012 when composer, singer and guitarist Vern Woodhead met drummer Rob Mitzner. He had long been searching for a drummer who was groovy, yet powerful and rambunctious enough to bring drive and emotion to his compositions. The lineup was complete when longtime collaborator Yana Davydova added her distinctive ethereal guitar sound, and bassist Dmitry Ishenko brought avant-garde chops combined with an impeccable groove.



The band recently completed work on its second full length album, 'El Inmortal', and will be embarking on a promotional tour of the US this spring and summer. Over the past 4 years, Woodhead has performed at some of New York's finest venues, including The Mercury Lounge, The Knitting Factory, and the Players Theater; they have also done tours of the East and West Coasts, and played to a packed house in bandleader Woodhead's boyhood home of Tecate, Mexico.

"Woodhead is one of those bands that rarely comes down the pike... you are on a different planet, maybe Manhattan, on LSD as a character in that one film that Jim Jarmusch was too scared shitless to make."

Night on the Sun - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Night on the Sun
NIGHT ON THE SUN is a 4-piece electro pop and soul band focused on pioneering a unique brand of pop music: catchy and accessible, yet vulnerable and daring. Led by singer/songwriter Nick Louis, the music plays to his emotive strengths as an artist; melding what is authentic, raw and intelligent with a modern soundscape lush with hip hop percussion, heavy synths and arena-worthy choruses. Over the years, Night on the Sun has played on the legendary stages of The Bitter End, Arlene's Grocery, and The Stone Pony.
Divining Rod - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Divining Rod
A veteran of the New York and Baltimore music scenes, Miyuki Furtado
continues to branch out musically with his latest work as psych-folk singer/songwriter, Divining Rod.

Multi-instrumentalist, Furtado, plays songs steeped in 60's British Folk & 70s US folk rock fused with psych drones resulting in a heady mix of melodic songwriting and left turn experimental arrangements.

Miyuki was also a member of The Rogers Sisters and Midnight Masses and
other eclectic groups.
