American Royalty - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
American Royalty
American Royalty is a psych-pop three piece that constructs an unlikely yet glowingly functional blend of dark psychedelic rock and poignant electronica. This creative soundscape is topped off by the two vocal leads of Marc Gilfry and Billy Scher, whose pipes both seem to fall somewhere in the realm of where blues and soul meet back on the other side.

The hard working trio spent most of 2012 on the road, from SXSW to CMJ, resting in LA only for a month to play a residency at The Echo and record their new EP (coming February 2013). Their unique and seasoned approach to the stage is one of the reasons why KCRW highlighted them as one of the “LA bands to watch at CMJ 2012”, and earned them support slots for a wide roster of talent including Metronomy, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Digitalism, The Presets, Ladyhawke, Hanni El Khatib and more.

Having recently relocated from Los Angeles to Brooklyn at the start of 2013, this will not only be their first play of the year, but also their first play as New Yorkers.
Vensaire - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Vensaire
Evoking images of sunlight passing through the branches of the Great Deku with psilocybin-level beauty...Vensaire's EP strikes a balance between Old World instruments and New Age synths. Eastern themes are woven into Western folk rock. The trouble with experimental music is that so often, the experiment fails and the result is garbage. But these guys are far from disposable. In the flotsam and jetsam of the Brooklyn scene, Vensaire has both feet firmly planted.
