Party Lights - (Set time: 11:15 PM)
Party Lights
Party Lights unabashedly wears their power pop hearts on their sleeve. The bastard child of Cheap Trick and The Go-Go's, the Brooklyn quartet doesn't see a problem with worshipping at the altar of the Knack and the Runaways every now and again (and again and again)...and if a tastefully played, bone shaking solo wants to edge its way into the mix, who says there isn't room for that too?

Party Lights is Anna Anabolic on guitar & vocals, Joan Chew on bass & vocals, Elliott Klein on guitar, and Dave Smilow on drums. Their debut LP will be released later this year.
Les Sans Culottes - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Les Sans Culottes
Brooklyn's Les Sans Culottes have taken the whole faux-French-band thing pretty far-the group's live shows are superenergetic, fake-multicultural events. You might not learn anything about French culcha, but you'll probably hop around like a lunatic.

- Time Out New York
Parlour Tricks - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Parlour Tricks
Recipients of the Village Voice's award for Best Pop Band in New York 2014, PARLOUR TRICKS (formerly Lily & The Parlour Tricks) has been hailed as "the perfect combo of pretty and gritty" (The Wild Magazine). The sextet's seemingly incongruous combination of powerhouse angel-choir harmonies, thundering bass, drums and synth, and impressionistic guitar work makes for a kind of indie pop symmetry that somehow sounds "50's nostalgic, 90's familiar, and 2020 progressive all at once" (The Most Definitely). With their "punchy, infectious, danceable rhythms, clean guitar, dirty synth, and heavenly voices" (Village Voice) it's not too hard to see why Spotify took a shine to them, calling their sound "Vintage pop for the future". The band's home base is New York City but they've been steadily making their way across the country. Notable 2014 tour stops include performances at Bonnaroo, Summerfest, South By Southwest, a Lollapalooza afterparty with Portugal. The Man, and hometown showcases at CBGB and CMJ Festivals. PARLOUR TRICKS travels to Nashville frequently to work with their producer, Emery Dobyns. Two of the tracks they created together, "Requiem" and "Lovesongs", were released as singles in 2014. A larger release in the works for early 2015.
