Jonah Matranga - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Jonah Matranga
Jonah Matranga is essentially unique. His music is somewhere in between Prince,
Bjork and The Clash, but it doesn’t really fit into any genre.

Over the last 20 years, he’s fronted influential post-hardcore band Far,
along with lots else (onelinedrawing, New End Original, Gratitude, Camorra, etc).

Jonah has played with, collaborated with, and influenced artists from
Frank Turner to Kimya Dawson to Deftones to Sepultura to Jimmy Eat World
to Fort Minor to Lupe Fiasco… and lots more.

Jonah has played as many house shows as he has huge festivals, and he
brings the same thing regardless of where he’s playing — ambitious songwriting, weird wit and honesty, and an interest in making it personal, direct, and fresh every time.
Meghann Wright - (Set time: 6:00 PM)
Meghann Wright
Meghann Wright is a Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter from Oahu, Hawaii. Meghann began playing saxophone at a young age and discovered ska, punk, and hardcore in her teens. She taught herself guitar and bass and played in bands across many genres including punk, hardcore, metal and indie rock. In 2011, Meghann set out on a solo artist excursion to hone her songwriting craft, fusing Americana, country, blues, soul and rock. She has released two EPs and one full length album, founded a local philanthropic organization for female-identifying indie artists in NY (The City & The Heart), and completed four national U.S. tours including 2015 Vans Warped Tour. She’s premiered new music and videos via American Songwriter, Paste, Crave, Bust Magazine, and Vevo and been lauded by American Songwriter, No Depression, and Pop Matters to name a few. Her first solo full length album Nothin’ Left To Lose was released on Blacktop Records on June 30, 2015. Her latest release “Big Sky” was written and produced with her friend Zac Maloy (Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw) in Nashville, TN. For fans of Miranda Lambert, Nikki Lane, Janis Joplin and Elle King.
