The Head
Over the past several years, Atlanta three-piece the Head have quietly emerged as one of the city’s most promising and hardest working bands. The group’s 2015 EP, Millipedes, earned them national accolades and exposed the trio to wider audiences who took a shine to the band’s smart balance of pop hooks and indie rock grit. As a result, the Head spent much of 2016 on the road, criss-crossing the country in what would eventually amount to a massive 107 date tour.

Throughout 2017 The Head have been releasing a string of singles in the build up to their full-length debut in the Fall. Meanwhile, the band continues their relentless touring of the U.S. and UK.
Hey Anna - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Hey Anna
Based out of Brooklyn and New Jersey, Hey Anna is an indie-pop five-piece made up of sisters Erin, Anna and Katie Rauch-Sasseen, featuring Matthew Langner on drums and Jamie DiTringo on lead guitar. As a band, they seamlessly mingle the warmth of a seaside summer with the cacophonous urban landscape of NYC. With the blending of heavy guitars and whimsical vocals, NYLON describes them as, "the sunny, feel-good band we've been waiting all winter to find."

With the July 2015 release of their debut album, Run Koko, Hey Anna have been played across international airwaves, with SPiN noting the band is, "a family affair that specializes in ethereal harmonies reminiscent of '00s indie-pop greats Feist, Chairlift, and School of Seven Bells." In November of 2014 they were invited to play several showcases in Tokyo, following the release of their double EP, Dance Until Three via Japan-based ThisTime Records.

Hey Anna has been a staple of the NYC music scene for years, with performances at the Northside Festival, Rooftop Films, the NYC Marathon, Break Thru Radio, and CMJ. Their songs play in major retail stores and have been featured in indie films Jane Wants A Boyfriend and That's Not Us.
