Port St. Willow - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Port St. Willow
Consisting of Nicholas Principe and his longtime friend and collaborator Jake Nussbaum, Port St. Willow began in 2009 as Principe’s solo outlet following a period of cross-country moves. The act’s principle songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Principe eventually settled down in Portland, OR where he released the project’s first EP, Even//Wasteland, in the fall of 2010.
Recorded over the course of a year in Principe’s Oregon studio, Holiday delivers on the artistic ambition of that initial material. It’s an emotionally-charged meditation on family and self – an exploration of new and old homes seen through the lens of a memory softened by distance and time.


In addition to the original tracks on Holiday, Principe has composed a brand new 25-minute, four-part suite called “Soft Light Rush” to serve as a new companion piece for the album.

Port St. Willow is now based in Brooklyn, NY.
Conveyor - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
