A Very Special Episode - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
A Very Special Episode
A Very Special Episode lives in the cross section of good tunes & television. Taking tropes from everything between shoegaze to 50s ballads, their music similarly lives between genres as can be heard on their latest release "Censored Dreams".
Antagonista - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Antagonista
Antagonista was born in California and moved to Boston, it was born in Minnesota and moved to Seattle. It was music schools and touring bands, theory nights and counter-point days; it was three thousand miles apart, but only two freeways between. It was parallel paths and patterned ritual, rhythmic rains and the inevitable embrace of caffeine. It was over thirty years in the forming, but its fresh footprints can now be found in the snowy streets of Brooklyn; waiting for the thaw.
Cole Lumpkin - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Cole Lumpkin
Ever since he was old enough to walk, Cole Lumpkin has been impassioned by, fascinated with, and intimately connected with music. An extremely talented multi-instrumentalist from New York City with deep roots in jazz and deeply inspired by his love of rock, pop, and blues. Drawing from a diverse array of influences, from the avant-garde rock of Frank Zappa to the blue-eyed pop-soul of John Mayer, his affection for the art of organized sound has become his creed: to compose music and play it for the pleasure of the masses. His compositions are vibrant, a fusion of tasteful form, lyric and improvisation he has coined "Prog-Pop".

Live, he performs on multiple instruments with an impressive array of professional musicians, nailing tight arrangements of his work, taking musical risks during solos, and keeping the energy bar high. In the past, he has performed at historic NYC venues such as The Knitting Factory, The Bitter End, DROM NYC, FatBaby, The Pine Box Rock Shop, Lit Lounge, The Player’s Club, Sullivan Hall and The Delancey. Cole is currently recording his debut full-length album, a monumental step in his career, and plans to do a promotional tour across the U.S. to support its release.
Patrick Collins - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Patrick Collins
Patrick Collins is a Hudson Valley singer songwriter. Spending most of his life as a skateboarder an ankle injury turned him to playing guitar and writing songs. He released his first ep "Folks Forgotten" last summer. Since then had toured all over the east coast and supported several for national acts. A new ep will be released this summer.
