CHAPPO - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
CHAPPO
Are we moving? Each moment inevitably becomes a relic of the past. The future appears as a destination within an infinite number of halfway points we may never reach. Will we ever experience time existing in it’s true form? We may discover at any moment, the future and past caving in on itself. All at once. Leaving in it’s wake an inexplicable reality where one is confronted with his future former self.

In CHAPPO’s world, the concept of time is twisted hopelessly out of focus. The band explore the abstract nature of time and the experience it has on the perception of reality in their sophomore album Future Former Self.

CHAPPO was born in the East Village of New York in 2009 and in a few short years has created an enthusiastic and rambunctious following. Splitting the difference between the guitar driven psychedelia of 60′s west coast rock and the spiritual witch doctor moonshine of Dr. John, they regularly turn their live show into nothing short of spectacle. After releasing a pair of EP’s Plastique Universe and Plastique Universe II: Pisces Princess in 2010 and 2011, they signed with Majordomo records to release their full length debut Moonwater in 2012. CHAPPO will be releasing their second LP, Future Former Self, on Votiv Music, set to release Spring of 2015.
Monogold - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Monogold
Monogold's melodies soar like an eagle on top of a rollercoaster on top of Mount Kilimanjaro. Why would there be a rollercoaster on Mount Kilimanjaro? You see things that are there and say, "Why?" But I see things that are not and say, "Why not?" Or, something like that.

Anyway, this lovely Brooklyn band creates wonderfully crafted lush pop that glides towards dreamy and transcendent territories. Singer Keith Kelly uses his floating falsetto to propel the trio's songs up, up, and up some more.

This is not sad music for you sacks who are sad. Monogold's music reaffirms the things in life that are worth reaffirming. (I'm not going to tell you the things in your life that needs reaffirming. I just work here.)

These three are such hookers too. Wait, scratch that. What I mean is the pop Monogold makes is catchy and sticky and big time hooky. Total sluts... to singable choruses!
