Figurines - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Figurines was formed sometime in the mid-'90s by the three childhood friends Christian Hjelm, Andreas Toft and Claus S. Johansen. In 2001 they recorded the EP "The Detour" and shortly after that they were signed to Morningside Records. Later that year Kristian Volden (AKA Volle) joined the band, completing the ensemble that we see today. - JamBase
Monogold - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Monogold's melodies soar like an eagle on top of a rollercoaster on top of Mount Kilimanjaro. Why would there be a rollercoaster on Mount Kilimanjaro? You see things that are there and say, "Why?" But I see things that are not and say, "Why not?" Or, something like that.

Anyway, this lovely Brooklyn band creates wonderfully crafted lush pop that glides towards dreamy and transcendent territories. Singer Keith Kelly uses his floating falsetto to propel the trio's songs up, up, and up some more.

This is not sad music for you sacks who are sad. Monogold's music reaffirms the things in life that are worth reaffirming. (I'm not going to tell you the things in your life that needs reaffirming. I just work here.)

These three are such hookers too. Wait, scratch that. What I mean is the pop Monogold makes is catchy and sticky and big time hooky. Total sluts... to singable choruses!
