Dead Leaf Echo - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Dead Leaf Echo
Dead Leaf Echo. The words are rich literature. Nabakov. Conjured images of drugged passions fading into nihilistic apprehension. An Art Project blossomed in 2006, DLE has matured rapidly since it’s birth now unveiling their unique style of Nouveau Wave.

DLE has released numerous EP’s, Singles and Remixes in addition to their noir film videos and heavy tour schedule prompting Time Out NY to call them “Some of the best live music in the city” The band just played Escape to NY festival and SXSW last year on bills with The Psychedelic Furs and A Place to Bury Strangers and rocked sold out shows last year opening for 90′s shoegaze legends Chapterhouse and Ulrich Schnauss.

Dead Leaf Echo’s previous work with Ulrich Schnauss on their Pale Fire EP has now caught the attention of famed 4AD producer John Fryer (Cocteau Twins, This Mortal Coil) who has mixed their debut LP “Thought and Language” to be released early this year. A concept album that follows the conception and birth of a child and his discovery of thought and language.

By incorporating elements of ambient, baroque, dream-pop, shoegaze, new wave, and goth, and crafting every aspect of their sound and vision, they remain one of the few left willing to work on high-art as concept. Chiming guitars in twin stereo reverbs with shimmering vocals and silky basslines. Dead Leaf Echo runs the gamut of what is now possible within the contemporary underground by running at the forefront of the indie NYC music scene.
Tiers - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
TIERS came about rather nebulously in the hazy hours when late becomes early and when consciousness yields to instinct. It is in these bleak hours that Jennifer Mears (vocals, synth, electronics) and Cult of Youth's Glenn Maryansky (electronics, synth, bass) write songs that ride the line between sterility and blissful grime, often going from stark airy synthpop to dense, almost industrial fuzz within the same song. It is this dynamic that separates Tiers from the myriad other male/female duos out there and it would be ill-advised to attach any labels to them since they are intent on defying expectation.
Gold - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Gold
GOLD is a
driving bass and drums with three part harmony making soulful punk rock quartet.
