Low Cut Connie - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
Low Cut Connie
Low Cut Connie is a rock n roll act from Philadelphia, fronted by piano-pounding firebrand Adam Weiner. Their song "Boozophilia" was chosen by President Obama for his Presidential Playlist, and the New York Times recently said "their live show is a phenomenon." The band has toured across the USA and Canada over the last 4 years building a diverse, passionate fanbase with their wild and loose stage show.

Their first three LP's (2011's Get Out the Lotion, 2012's Call Me Sylvia, & 2015's Hi Honey) have been acclaimed by many in print and radio, including NPR, Rolling Stone, MOJO, Huffington Post, and Sound Opinions. Legendary music critic Robert Christgau, aka the Dean of American Rock Critics, famously wrote "Low Cut Connie rips shit up." Sound Opinions / NPR critic Greg Kot recently said of the band, "Low Cut Connie is the essence of what rock n roll should be."

In 2017, the band will release a pair of new LP's, two halves of a double album they recently recorded at the legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis TN.
The Artisanals - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
The Artisanals
The Artisanals, comprised of Johnny Delaware, Clay Houle, Steven Walker, and Jordan Hicks, are a rock band from Charleston, South Carolina. Although formed in late 2016, the band has already opened for Band of Horses for a two-night stint at 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., and toured in support of Futurebirds.

Singer/guitarist Johnny Delaware previously performed with SUSTO. The Artisanals recently recorded their debut album at The Magic Barn, a recording studio in the countryside of Iowa, using a 1970 NEVE 80 Series console acquired from Magic Shop in New York City, the same console on which, among many others, David Bowie’s Blackstar, Kurt Vile’s Smoke Ring for My Halo, and Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs were recorded. The Artisanals nod their head to ‘70s heartland rock and perform with a refreshing energy.
Scantron - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Scantron
A sumptuous extension of rock and roll tradition. Northeast soul. Two guitars, bass, drums, farfisa. 3-minute songs, or less.
