The Living Kills - (Set time: 12:30 AM)
The Living Kills
“The Living Kills look, on the surface, like any other New York indie band waiting for its big break into the mainstream, but after one listen to 'Angels Without Faces,' it becomes evident that’s not the case. Organs, synthesizers, ticking clocks and smoky male-and-female vocals make the group stand out from its peers...Faceless Angels (Past Futures) possesses new yet surprisingly nostalgic tracks." - Magnet Magazine



“These New York rocker’s newest album features creeping organ, tons of noise and a great mix of ’60s guitar nostalgia and modern shoe-gaze.” -AOL Music/Spinner



“There’s a splendor inside ‘Angels Without Faces’ that makes it distinguishable amongst the bands you just come to know. The intro is profound, determined and vigorous...It’s as though The Living Kills, within the time of only a debut EP and this, have piled up a portfolio of confidence." - Ghost FM



“Listening to this Brooklyn band feels like an eerie dream, like there’s a ghost lingering in their psychedelic rock. It’s unlikely that any of the members of The Living Kills lived through the 60s, yet their music can be easily confused as something from that era. Many of today’s up-and-coming bands, from Echo Park to Brooklyn, sound like the 60s, but not like this. The Living Kills sounds like The Doors and Jefferson Airplane. Their music is spooky and poetic, like an early Tim Burton movie.” - BeatCrave.com



“This psych rock outfit experiments with electric keyboard drones and and live effects, spinning cult classic projections and a passionate frontman. The cool, dark feel of the music - echo-y and chilled - can turn quite loud and plowing, an enveloping vibe to revel in.” - The Deli New York
Twin Guns - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
Twin Guns
New York's TWIN GUNS features Andrea Sicco (Oscura, Rockethouse) and "Jungle" Jim Chandler (The Cramps, The Makers). Despite being just a duo, Twin Guns has the power and chops to really bring it. Drenched in reverb, fuzz and an overdose of atmosphere, Twin Guns combine parts Jesus & Mary Chain, the Count Five/Seeds vibe, and the New York "No Wave" scene into its own dark stew.
Madam Robot and the Lust Brigade - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Madam Robot and the Lust Brigade
Formed in the year 2004 A.D., Madam Robot and the Lust Brigade is the secret organization for the liberation of the mind through the shambolic space boogie.
