Fiona Silver - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Fiona Silver
Known largely for her powerful voice and soulful twist on gritty rock ‘n roll, Huffington Post calls her “a force to be reckoned with.” Silver melds and bends genres together to create her own sound, capturing both raw power and vulnerability. Culture Collide says, “it is her fearless experimentation with all sorts of genres that we find so cool.” Word of Fiona Silver has recently stretched across the pond to the U.K. where Phoenix Magazine named her a “female pioneer smashing glass ceilings...” and one of “three raw female talents torching patriarchal rock” alongside Savages’ Jehnny Beth and Arrow de Wilde of Starcrawler.

Silver is a pixie-sized powerhouse, born and bred in NYC with a take no prisoners punk ethic. Black Book calls her music “gritty and sexual”. During one of her live performances, Galore Magazine said “this kick ass girl has a Presence, with a capital P." Paste Magazine states, "femme fatale, an heiress apparent to Amy Winehouse... or a modern day chanteuse given her spit and sass, Fiona Silver clearly demands immediate attention." She has also been praised by Sirius XM, KROQ FM, Pure Volume, Inked, and Ladygunn to name a few.

With her pinup girl panache and seductive charm, she’s mesmerized audiences nationally. A cross section of live highlights include performances at Mohawk Austin directly supporting Andrew W.K., KCRW's Desert Nights at The Standard Hotel Hollywood, the rooftop of the iconic Georgia Theatre, as well as residencies at Rose Bar and Ace Hotel in New York. Fiona also has the added distinction of being endorsed by Telefunken Microphones, Reverend Guitars & Luna Guitars.
The Worst Humans
The Worst Humans
The Worst Humans, a three-piece jazz-grunge-punk outfit from Brooklyn, found their footing in the underground rock scene, taking refuge in the basement of the Berlin social club on Avenue A. Members of the group have performed on “The Today Show,” “Good Morning, America” alongside Elle King, have shared tours with The Fray, James Blunt, American Authors and more, but can still be found skulking around the Lower East Side in Manhattan. Pulling their sound from ‘90s groups and Nina Simone, the eclectic “jazz-punks” are slowly becoming a notable live performance in and around the city. They are not who you think they are and do not toil in the boundaries of popular music or popular art. Instead, they plan on making a sound much larger than they are.
Modern Whale - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
