The Bowery Riots - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
The Bowery Riots
New NYC indie band, The Bowery Riots, are out to cause some distruption on the music scene. Their latest single, “My Time Has Come,” boasts a mean guitar riff and a natural grit that just screams rock and roll.

That would make sense coming from an act that lists “the history of music, fashion, film, and New York City” as their biggest influence. These guys are part Jack White, part Black Keys, and 100% raw, fighting spirit. With a full-length album in the works, we can’t wait to see what’s to come!
Linfinity - (Set time: 9:30 PM)

"Sounding like Eddie Veddar and Tiny Tim Harmonizing in a meat cooler, Dylan Von Wagner's shivering warble grabs you straightaway."
-- Will Hermes, Rolling Stone

New York based LINFINITY have confirmed a fall 2012 release for their sophomore album, Lights in Cairo. Produced by Kevin McMahon (Real Estate, Titus Andronicus) and mixed by Matt Boynton (MGMT, Kurt Vile) Lights in Cairo is the follow up to 2010's Martian's Bloom released on American Myth Recordings.

The five piece band have made their first single "Miles" available for streaming/sharing via SoundCloud

The praise that followed Martian's Bloom came from the likes of Rolling Stone and Pitchfork, the latter boasting "Von Wagner is a commanding presence, expressive and elegantly bombastic" and the Washington Post noting their unique songwriting "...can't be categorized as any one style; it's timeless."

Since the release of their debut album, the band toured the US and played CMJ, their set catching the attention of The Wall Street Journal to write the band's sound is similar to "the offspring of David Byrne and the Band: The New York quintet's songs are compact yet anthematic."

Recorded in upstate New York, Lights in Cairo is Linfinity's strongest and most ambitious work yet. Led by principal songwriter and lead singer Dylan Von Wagner, newcomers Mark Evan Roth (guitar), Justin Repasky (keys) and Joe Zdaa (drums) join veteran bassist Grant Zubrisky.

A release date, final track listing and additional details will be announced shortly.
The Dough Rollers - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
The Dough Rollers
The Dough Rollers started in 2008 when Jack Byrne and Malcolm Ford bonded over a mutual appreciation for blues music.

Initially the band started as a three piece with fiddler and singer Julia featured alongside Byrne and Ford. A self-titled album comprised of mostly traditional American music and a few originals was recorded and released in late 2009.

After some time as a three-piece, the lineup shifted back to just Byrne and Ford, who had been using their time on the road to start developing more of their own material.

After a breakout performance at Austin City Limits and a tour with Bob Dylan and John Mellencamp, an album Someday Baby - made up of the songs that the two had crafted playing countless shows around the country, was released in a limited run.

2011 would also find the Dough Rollers touring North America and Europe with Queens of the Stone Age.

After the release of their sophomore album, the band was joined by Kyle Olson on drums and Josh Barocas on bass, adding an entirely new dimension to the band and pushing them to truly find and develop their own sound to how it sounds today.

Shortly thereafter, the quartet were asked to head down to Nashville and record a single for Jack White's Third Man Records.

The song "Little Lily" was produced by White and released in the summer of 2013 accompanied by the B-side "Sailing Song."

The band then readied for the recording sessions for their first official EP Gone Baby Gone,

Gone Baby Gone features appearances from Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme as well as Steve Jordan was released by Third Man Records in correlation with the band's appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman in Spring '14.

Public acclaim for the bands live show has constantly increased especially after Jack White heralded The Dough Rollers in Rolling Stone magazine, saying Jack Byrne ‘ was his favourite new Young Gun Guitarist’

2014 closed most successfully with The Dough Rollers being asked to support the Legendary Billy Idol around the UK & Europe

2015 should have seen them out supporting The Black Keys all over Europe on a massive Arena tour which unfortunately had to be rescheduled to a later date after an injury to a Black Key.

So Not a band who waits and sits around they have already this year crossed the pond again to the UK to play some headline shows and gain some great reviews and gain momentum with radio plays on XFM and classic FM.

They have now finished their new EP which is outrageously good and about to engage on a Tour of the USA for what will be MUST SEE GIGS ! as this is one of the most important bands emerging in Rock worldwide today.
