The Inns - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
The Inns
Lauren and Tyler of The Inns met in the often unpredictable world of New York City freelance gigging. The two active musicians founded Phillstock Entertainment in the fall of 2011 and The Inns is the flagship band. The second Phillstock show that they produced had an allstar line up of bands and this selfishly caused Tyler and Lauren to want to be added to the bill, so they enlisted drummer extraordinaire Jeff Gretz and started a band called The Inns. It turns out they didn't suck, and now here they are..
NCM - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
NCM
NCM is an eccentric and eclectic concoction of raw old-school punk, driving rhythms, and folk elements created by the music alchemist Pete Crotty.
Not Your Queens English - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Not Your Queens English
NYQE was founded by Guitarist/Vocalist Alex Yacovelli. During his freshmen year at NYU, Yacovelli befriended Martinez and Dumas, who were living in the same dorm. Years later, Yacovelli met Stockner via a chance encounter at Union Square, where she was performing with another band. When the four came together, they discovered a common love for playing loud and rocking hard... thus NYQE was born. In 2011, the group played Mercury Lounge, Pianos, Fontanas, and Don Pedro, among other venues. Thank You for your continued support!
Men & Whales - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Men & Whales
Men and Whales formed in 2008, under the direction of singer-songwriter Tom Murphy (rhythm guitar, vocals) and fellow musicians Brent Lazo (lead guitar) and Clint Paul (bass). That same year the band released their home-made debut 'Farewell to the Fire' and began performing live with newest member Garrett Finely on drums. The following summer, the new four-piece released the Long Story Short EP and continued honing their skills in clubs throughout NYC.

In 2010, the band released their second full-length album, 'When the Days Blend', followed by a mini-tour through California culminating in a performance at the Whisky a Go-Go in Los Angeles. In May of 2011 the band successfully completed their first residency at the popular NYC venue Fontana's, highlighted by a memorable live performance of the Beatles’ legendary album 'Abbey Road.' The following October they performed at CMJ, New York City's largest and longest running music industry showcase.

In 2012 the band mutually parted ways with Garrett Finely and handed off the drumsticks to Mark Seman. In the spring of that year they completed their second successful residency, this time at Arlene's Grocery in NYC and in November released their third full length album, 'The Years Are Gone'. Recorded in Williamsburg and produced by Andy Baldwin, 'The Years Are Gone' proved to be the bands strongest effort to date. Current singles from the album include 'I Always Knew', 'Arabella', and 'Everything We Give'. Men and Whales is currently booking dates throughout 2013 in support of 'The Years Are Gone'.
