Empires - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Empires have emerged from the deep freeze of Chicago with a collection of tunes imbued with a thick-skinned Midwestern charm. “Orphan” – the band’s upcoming album on Chop Shop / Island Records has producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, The Black Angels, Explosions in the Sky) at the helm, perfectly capturing a band in their truest form. Empires are out on the road this winter & spring – with stops at SXSW and various festivals – introducing songs from the new album, including the debut track ‘How Good Does It Feel’.
Cheerleader - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Cheerleader are a new Philly five-piece set to take your whole summer over with debut single proper "Perfect Vision", as they swing for the fences on their biggest track to date. Bursting hard out the gates on the anthemic bounce of a strummed acoustic guitar melody straight out of Dr. Luke's book of solid gold hits, it's got all the carefree ebullience of "Last Friday Night" as seen through a Wavvey lo-fi filter, as hushed singalong vocals and halcyon daze atmospherics submerge you in a neverending dream sequence. "Perfect Vision" is out on limited edition vinyl June 10th via our heroes at Young & Lost in the UK and Bright Antenna in the States.
