Six60 - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Six60
As a band, Six60 originally formed in Dunedin in 2008. Inspired by the vibrant culture of soul, rock and bass heavy electronica that defined late 2000s student life down south, they began jamming out at their infamous flat, 660 Castle Street. Bedroom practices quickly became small living room concerts for friends and family, which lead them to playing flat-warming's, parties and eventually local bars.

Pressured into recording a demo EP by friends and family, they sold their music online through their website and setup some fan pages on various online social networks. As the saying goes, if you give, you get back, and as word about their high-octane live shows, and copies of their songs spread around New Zealand and Australia, they were rewarded with a burgeoning fan base, both in real life and online.

Sitting at over 145,000 plus fans on Facebook, Six60 also have to their credit, two double platinum selling singles 'Rise Up 2.0' and 'Don't Forget Your Roots', one platinum selling single ‘Only To Be’ and a triple platinum Number One debut album. They have toured internationally to sold out crowds for several years now, playing at consistently larger venues every cycle. Along the way they've scored prized time slots at key summer festivals such as La De Da, Rhythm and Vines, Splore, Homegrown and Big Day Out, topped the commercial singles charts, and built a strong, robust audience worldwide.

The band also took home six NZ Music Awards in the Fall of 2012 including: Single of the Year; Best Group; NZ On Air Radio Airplay of the Year; Highest Selling New Zealand Single; Highest Selling New Zealand Album; People's Choice Award

Blending soul, rock, dubstep and drum and bass, their music is as dynamic, versatile and unexpected as their back story. Extended singer/songwriter jams incorporate dubstep sections as bridges, hard rocking guitar work duels with robust synthetics and thunderous low end bass over vibrant percussive rhythms, and in both voice and instrumentation infectious melody consistently shines through.

They're a band with songs that make just as much sense when listened to with headphones strapped on, as they do in the heat of a capacity concert moment. And with Tiki Taane as co-producer on their self-titled debut album, they have married what they're known for with where they're going. Leave your preconceptions at the door and let Six60 show you the world as they see it, one song at a time.
See Through - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
See Through
See Through is a new band started by 25 year old singer/guitarist James Pollis who was born and raised in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Started as a simple recording project amongst friends at Brooklyn's The Rumpus Room, the gathering took on a life of its own. After the sessions, a live band was born and quickly earned the respect of the NYC music community sharing bills with some of NYC's best live bands (Har Mar Superstar, Caveman). See Through was recently featured on the Snacky Tunes radio show playing a trippy, stripped down set. While the sound on the recordings is dynamic and expansive, See Through's live show is possibly larger and even more ambitious making them one of the most exciting bands to see in New York City. Look out for a release in early 2014 as well as more live dates.
