The Midnight Hollow - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
The Midnight Hollow
Keep It Strange, Lose Yourself.

New York City’s hypnotic power trio, The Midnight Hollow, is led by singer and multi-instrumentalist Spencer Draeger, with Andrew Segreti on drums and Matt Leibowitz on Bass.

As a testament to the band's most integral attribute, playing live, Stereogum listed them as "band to watch" after witnessing their very first performance. Their first official release, “Downstairs,” was an atmospheric, half acoustic half electronic dream single issued under French based electro/art rock label Zappruder Records. The follow up self-titled EP included psychedelic journeys “That Rabbit Talk” and “Her Morning Glow,” featuring a 6 and a half minute long video complimenting their dark aesthetic. The video for “Her Morning Glow” received praise by both Noisey and Stereogum for it’s hypnotizing visuals and sounds, and propelled the band into the spotlight.

The Midnight Hollow has continued to blend sounds and turn heads with their latest EP, For The People Inside. The single “Forward,” was featured on Spotify’s Best New Music Playlist,” became the inspiration for fashion designer Todd Snyder’s NYFW runway show, and was used as the auditory backdrop for the event. The band is currently recording their next album.
Fielded - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Fielded is the stage name of Lindsay A. Powell, a vocalist, songwriter and composer currently based out of Brooklyn, NY. Powell works at creating a genre-less instrumental backdrop for the movement of her voice – a penetrating and sensual tool in which she explores fearlessly and innovatively. She refers to her sound as 'post-apocalyptic pop', a title that is all too fitting as it seems as though her songs have been written as part of some future film laced with battle cries, lovemaking and outer limit abductions. When writing, Powell says that each song begins with a vocal line and from there she constructs an entire movement complete with drums, bass, choral backings and the occasional saxophone solo. Intense and riveting, we pulse through the many dimensions of her songs searching for the history we never knew and the future we never thought we wanted.

Fielded has just finished Ninety Thirty Thirty, her full-length follow-up to 2009's Terrageist. She is currently touring and writing for her upcoming releases.
Reni Lane - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Reni Lane
Whether it's whipping up a song on Keezy or creating a performance art piece for CutLog Art Fair, Reni brings a clear, bracingly vulnerable voice to the space between music, technology, art, and the extreme.

A compelling performer and formidable songwriter, Reni has collaborated with The Like, Linda Perry, Dave Stewart, Duncan Sheik, Gary Go, and opened for acts such as The XX, Arctic Monkeys, Owl City, and She & Him.

Reni's artistic interests began at a young age with classical piano training and modern dance lessons. She sold her piano to finance a move to New York and attend Columbia University's Creative Writing Program, where she threw DIY concerts in her dorm-room and cut her chops at Sidewalk Cafe's open mic night. After her well-reviewed indie release "American Baby," Reni was signed to Custard Records who released her major label debut, entitled "Ready," on Universal Motown.

Ever since "Ready," Reni has been on the road expanding her artistic arsenal. Her work has been featured on MTV, VH1, The NY Post, USA Today, Paste, Spin, and NYLON. She is currently preparing for the release of her EP "Lane In Stay" and can be found on the road with Howie Day & Joseph Arthur.
