Octopus Project - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Octopus Project
The Octopus Project has been releasing joyous party music since 2002, all the while touring the world both on their own and as handpicked support for artists as diverse as Aesop Rock, DEVO, and Explosions in the Sky. They've earned a reputation as a band that creates exceptional experiences through elaborate multimedia experiments, lavish album packaging, and the intensity of their extremely fun, extremely loud live shows. The band plans to hit the road again in August in support of Fever Forms.
The Vandelles - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
The Vandelles
Thanks to their ripping guitar lines- and even finer harmonies- The Vandelles define the distaff side of the Noir Rock sound. Their biggest hits, including Lovely Weather (DBA) and Swell to Heaven (TTB), remain among the most potent and enduring recordings of their era. Formed as a merger of two local vocal groups, The Mercenary Gang and Del Black Aloha, The Vandelles take aspects of Link Wray and The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Ronettes and My Bloody Valentine, Buddy Holly and The Ramones, to create a sound thats uniquely theirs.

While crooning softly in the background, they take old school rock and roll your parents used to listen to and run it through screaming, blown out amplifiers. Having played from LA to NYC The Vandelles have developed an infamous live show that is an audio and visual assault. Garage cats, cowboy beat poetry, and the Wall of Sound. Turn your eyes inside out and dig the vacuum, This is Noir Rock and Roll.
