Gosh Pith - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Gosh Pith
GOSH PITH is a Detroit-based duo who draw influence from a wide range of genres in creating an unclassifiable sound uniquely their own.

Long-lost childhood friends Josh Smith (vocals, guitar, production) and Josh Freed (beats, electronics, production) reconnected in 2014 and began writing their debut album Window on borrowed equipment, recording in vacant spaces and mixing in friends’ cars. With a keen ability to mesh together seemingly random sounds, GOSH PITH earned early critical attention from The Guardian, Stereogum, Noisey, Pigeons and Planes, and the like, and racked up millions of plays across the internet.

After a long winter touring the midwest, the duo returned to Detroit to work on their follow-up project, moving into a big castle-like house near downtown that was said to be haunted. 2016’s Gold Chain was released by LA-based B3SCI Records and represented an exciting new extension of GOSH PITH’s hybrid sound. From the booming trap bass and frenetic guitar licks of “K9” through the plaintive vocals and spacious sonics of the title track “Gold Chain,” the duo ushered an exiting new distillation of hip-hop, pop, stoner rock, dub and Detroit trap — while never sounding quite like any of them. Following the release of Gold Chain, GOSH PITH hit the road, playing headlining dates across the midwest and east coast, as well as sharing the stage with a broad range of artists including GRiZ, Vic Mensa, ODESZA, JR JR, and Kero Kero Bonito.
CAFUNÉ - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
cafuné (Brazilian-Portuguese, noun): “the act of running your fingers through a loved one’s hair.”
Sedona Schat and Noah Yoo took that unique meaning to heart when they began their similarly named alternative-pop project, delving into the space between dance music and post-punk. Their EP Love Songs for Other People won over fans around the world after it was released in December 2015. Recorded across the Atlantic, the EP showcases “their separate experiences molded together to forge something spectacular and infectious that proves no boundaries or limitations will deter them.” CAFUNÉ are currently working on new music.
Cobrayama - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Brooklyn-based producer Cobrayama, the brainchild of Mike Iannatto, formerly of the trio Exmag. Specializing in soul, future-funk, hip-hop and downtempo chill-out.
