Gangstagrass - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Gangstagrass
Gangstagrass is a dirty fightin', gator wrestlin', foot stompin' bluegrass-hip-hop project of Brooklyn based producer Rench, who has spent the last decade making gritty, soulful country hip-hop music that you will actually like.

There are only three bands that can tame a mountain lion just by playing. Gangstagrass is one of them. Gangstagrass is also the other two of them.

Yeah, Gangstagrass did the theme song to Justified. Yeah, Rench and T.O.N.E-z got nominated for an Emmy for it. Yeah, this is real bluegrass pickers and real emcees making music. And yeah, we do it live too.

The Newton Gang - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
The Newton Gang
Outlaw country, tried and true. From their humble beginnings as part of the Honky Tonk Happy Hour to their current role as Brooklyn's most prolific outlaw country band, The Newton Gang has come into their own.


"Trading off between the burnt-sugar baritone of San Antonio refugee J.D. Duarte and the classic high'n'lonesomes of Ms. Carin Gorrell, and propped up by the classic twang of some of Brooklyn Country's finest backup boys, The Newton Gang provides the kind of sincere, soft-spoken soundtrack perfect for long-distance drives and hungover mornings."
