Port St. Willow - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Port St. Willow
Consisting of Nicholas Principe and his longtime friend and collaborator Jake Nussbaum, Port St. Willow began in 2009 as Principe’s solo outlet following a period of cross-country moves. The act’s principle songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Principe eventually settled down in Portland, OR where he released the project’s first EP, Even//Wasteland, in the fall of 2010.
Recorded over the course of a year in Principe’s Oregon studio, Holiday delivers on the artistic ambition of that initial material. It’s an emotionally-charged meditation on family and self – an exploration of new and old homes seen through the lens of a memory softened by distance and time.

In addition to the original tracks on Holiday, Principe has composed a brand new 25-minute, four-part suite called “Soft Light Rush” to serve as a new companion piece for the album.

Port St. Willow is now based in Brooklyn, NY.
Salt Cathedral - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Salt Cathedral
Brooklyn group Salt Cathedral used to go by the name Il Abanico, in case you thought their expansive, multi-instrumentalist pop rang a bell.

Fresh from touring the US with Hundred Waters and Freelance Whales, the five-piece of Juliana Ronderos, Tommy Hartman, Stefan Bildy, Silvio Vega and Nicolas Losada have shared their most recent track 'Take Me To The Sea'.

It's similar in approach to the work of Hundred Waters, actually. In the sense that these two bands' members trade instruments and share ideas at a constant rate, they're almost identical beings.
