La Luz - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
La Luz
La Luz is a band in Seattle, WA, started in the summer of 2012 by Shana Cleveland (guitar), Marian Li Pino (drums), Abbey Blackwell (bass), and Katie Jacobson (keyboard). Everyone sings. Songs by Shana and La Luz.
Heliotropes - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Heliotropes
Heliotropes hail from Brooklyn, NY. With a sound described as "doomy
pop" - containing elements of shoegaze, goth and classic psych metal -
Heliotropes blend influences from Spacemen 3, Spiritualized, Black
Sabbath and My Blood Valentine. On this lo-fi EP, the guitar riffs are
murky, the drums are bludgeoning, and the shrills of the violin are
haunting. But it is California native Jessica Numsuwankijkul's
detached, wistful vocals - which bring to mind Richard Ashcroft meets
Mazzy Star - that turn spacey dissonance into beautiful hypnotic rock.

III is an EP that shows a lot of potential for a group of talented
musicians and songwriters, who are sure to carve out their own space
in an exciting, emerging (and hopefully lasting) trend in independent
music.
Eastern Midwestern - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Eastern Midwestern
Eastern Midwestern are four friends from Brooklyn, NY. They practice in a walk-in closet. Their s/t debut record comes out on June 5th.
