Kill Your Friends - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Kill Your Friends
Kill Your Friends is a new skate punk band, fronted by the mysterious figure known only as "Fuckface." Fuckface was the frontman of a semi-popular mid-2000's pop-punk band called Love Your Friends, playing Warped Tour and even opening for famous Blink-182 cover band Fuck, I'm 30 And I Guess This Is What I Do Now.

But their success was short-lived. While on tour, Fuckface tried salvia behind a Ruby Tuesday's, triggering a downward spiral of drug-crazed mania and self-destruction, culminating in the band's infamous final show which left thirty fans dead and one hundred injured. One survivor described the bloody scene as "the most hardcore punk shit you could ever possibly imagine."

Immediately following Love Your Friends' tragic last show, Fuckface checked into the Mount Sinai Psychiatric Ward for his homicidal episodes, and then into Spring Lake Rehabilitation Center for his salvia addiction. During this time, the other five members of Love Your Friends (whose slogan was "Never Betray Your Buds") decided they'd had enough of Fuckface and went on to form popular pop punk band The Story So Far.

After hearing news of his former bandmates' success, Fuckface formed Kill Your Friends and decided to never trust anyone ever again.
Daisy The Great - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
DAISY THE GREAT is an NYC-based indie pop/rock band.

With front-girls Kelley Nicole Dugan and Mina Walker as lead singers and songwriters, DAISY THE GREAT also features Briana Archer & Sophie Sagan-Gutherz (add. vocals), Justin Danforth (guitar), Bernardo Ochoa (bass), and Matti Dunietz (percussion).
Kyle Duke and The Brown Bag Boys - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
"[Kyle's] cool kid grooves and early 60s rock flavor injects technicolor vibrations into your ear canal. His video for 'Valley Song' is a delightful jaunt through summer nostalgia, dumpster side beach vibes, and dress-clad skateboarding." - Jackson Utah Tanner, Leisure Goth

“Duke's songwriting and performance has an incredible sense of musicality that is rare in the Demarco-esque Lo-fi bedroom pop category that is becoming more and more popular among amateur artists” - Danny Garcia, Kurrent Music

“guitar based and ambient, with reverb drenched, whispery vocals , [Duke's music has] a rock sound that's both comforting and relaxing... reminiscent of 60’s garage rock, surf music and psychedelic rock." - Khaya Cohen, Earmilk

“Pipe Dream Brings the signature Mac DeMarco sound to the beach with its classic surf rock drum patterns and twangy reverb-laden guitar. We are definitely looking forward to hearing more from Duke and them boys." - IHEARTCOMIX

Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer Kyle Duke is a rising artist in the indie rock scene.
