The Attic Ends - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
The Attic Ends
The Attic Ends are a four piece, atmospheric indie-rock band from Bushwick, Brooklyn. Their music has been described as a spine-tingling mix of rock’s primal recklessness with the intricacy of complex indie-pop. The music evokes an expansive darkness, richly-layered with appealing melodies and power pop vocals. The band formed in 2010, and recorded a debut album shortly thereafter. After releasing their debut album in 2010, after only having been a band six months, The Attic Ends felt the need to take time in order to develop their own unique sound. For three years, they wrote, rehearsed and performed the songs for their new album. Then at long last, on July 12th, 2013, they released “The Sky Begins (Part One)”, the first installment of a 2-part album. The sky is the limit for this group of friends, who are committed to creating great music. ”Our music is one of personal reflection, empowerment and ultimately liberation. It documents the highs and lows that come with that type of introspection: at times dark and rumbling, at times euphoric.”
Carl Gershon - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Carl Gershon
Born and raised in New York City, Carl Gershon's entire life has been dedicated to musical pursuits. Gershon, a graduate of both Northwestern University and the School of Audio Engineering NYC, scored internationally distributed films, toured as lead guitarist in several bands and has now released his first batch of songs as a solo artist and multi-instrumentalist. His sound springs from the same fertile soil that inspired Quincy Jones to recruit Eddie Van Halen to record his mind-melting "Beat It" solo, the Neptunes to channel their beat-making studio wizardry into the white-hot rock fury of N.E.R.D., and Depeche Mode to go back into the studio to record extended dance floor ready "night versions" of their ubiquitous singles.

He is making music to motivate movement. Whether making danceable rock music or dance music that rocks in this post-iPod-on-shuffle, post-mash up world of 2011, Carl Gershon is the hybrid soundtrack of the new future.
