Two Cent Sam - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Two Cent Sam
Following on from a brilliant debut EP and a spot at one of Rock and Roll's most prestigious venues, Long Island natives Two Cent Sam are set to take that next big leap with their outstanding debut album 'Songs From The Sandbox'.

Formed in early 2009, TCS wasted no time in piecing together their brilliant first EP "Give And Take World" in December of that year. Catapulting them onto the NYC gig circuit, the band entered into the Hard Rock Battle of the Bands which they later won, resulting in a show at the infamous Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square, beating out a number of other Long Island acts.

Recently recorded at The Music Palace of West Hempstead, NY with Mic Angelo (Michael Bona, Public Enemy), and mastered at Avatar Studios under Fred Kevorkian (The White Stripes, Dave Matthews Band). 'Songs From The Sandbox' is a rapturous and progressive opus that marries the bolder elements of indie-pop with finite nods to 70's-era classic rock; creating a bold, beautiful 12 track offering that evolves and moves continually over its 48 minute run.

With highlight tracks including the outstanding, upbeat aplomb of '20 To 12', the multi-faceted uproar of 'Warcry' and The Killers-esque 'Wasting Away', the band succeed in creating an album rich in luscious melodies and clever musicianship that is destined to resonate with the ardent music lover worldwide.

Whale Belly - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Whale Belly
Whale Belly was formed by Todd Bogin and Nick Smeraski in 2010. What started as two friends' experimentations in songwriting and recording has turned into a debut album called ...The Smile at the End of the Slope, an intense, raw mix of determined folky-blues-rock which has been receiving enormous praise. In their short existence, Whale Belly has toured as a supporting act for nationally-known bands, been featured on various radio stations, and gained a cult following around Brooklyn with fun and rollicking live shows.
