Azwel - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Azwel is a project that involves songwriter Jason Perrillo and a brand new live band consisting of Joe Lorge (guitar/backing vocals) Gregg Steele (bass/backing vocals), Johnny Zaletel (drums/percussion), and Randy Bennis(Keyboards.) For the past 13 years, Jason has been recording and producing his own independently released albums in his New York studio. He describes the music as melodic, eclectic catchy pop/rock with songs that are influenced by various styles of music. The sound is often compared to britpop/rock artists.

A debut album was completed in 2003. The styles have always changed from album to album. Depending on the album or track, the instrumentation varies greatly from song to song with electric/acoustic guitars to various electric pianos, organs, brass, woodwind and strings.

"Perrillo calls his music "interesting melodic pop," an understatement to say the least. That's like calling Jimi Hendrix's music "unusual rock." - NY Newsday

Azwel's music is always filled with interesting chord progressions, catchy melodies and thought-out arrangements.

Jason plays many different instruments and has a lot of live and studio experience with his own music as well as being a producer and casual session keyboard/guitarist for other acts.

Most of the albums are available to download for free on the official website with the choice of optional donations depending on how much the listener enjoys the album. Over the years, Jason has also collaborated with many other online artists and has a project in the works with Argentinian pop artist, Julian Murias.

Throughout the years Azwel's songs have been reviewed online and have gotten very positive feedback on various blogs, radio stations as well as some very positive reviews from major publications such as the New York Newsday. Azwel's songs have also been featured in Hollywood major motion pictures(Let The Game Begin), independent film soundtracks, and compilations put together by several international independent labels.

Azwel's most recent album entitled,"From Now On" which expands the sound even further. It has been receiving excellent feedback from both critics and fans
Nevada Nevada - (Set time: 9:30 PM)

Nobody ever really quits music. Not if they ever really loved it. One can try, but it always creeps back, until one day the air is once again being caused to vibrate in the most necessary to actualize being. It is how it should be.

Several years ago, Kathryn Musilek, frontman for Nevada Nevada, was a fixture in the vibrant and close-knit Iowa City, Iowa music scene, playing in numerous bands and just being generally omnipresent therein. In some way, this was the natural result of a life long love and study of music, having learned several instruments. A significant other used Kathryn as an entry point into this world, and once on the inside, spread their lovin' all over, with the knowledge of everyone in town--everyone, that is, but Kathryn.

This betrayal hurt so bad, it required that Iowa City be left behind in favor of Brooklyn and the creation of music be left behind in favor publicizing the same. It was a sort of "I need to be a new me" sort of deal. As we all know, though, a creator of things as gifted as Kathryn cannot suppress the urge to make things for long. And so there was born Nevada Nevada.

Nevada Nevada is a rock 'n' roll band from Brooklyn with more than a hint of its midwestern roots. It is part Wilco, part Guns 'n' Roses. There is americana and folk, but there is even more rock 'n' roll.
