Five of the Eyes
Portland, Maine
Prog Rock/Funk/Latin/Indie
Show: Fri uly 17th @Bullshooters - Philly
w/ In the Presence of Wolves, White Light Spectrum, Skobo and Jack Nimbus

"...a self-titled, self-produced first studio effort that’s arrestingly dynamic, heavy yet danceable, and deceptively melodic. It draws on the progressive metal roots of many of the band members, but it brings in further Latin, funk and pop elements. It’s one of the strongest debuts from a new Maine band in the past two years, and it’s already helped the band garner some early buzz as a seriously awesome live act."
-Emily Burnham (Culture Shock, Bangor Daily News)
A mind altering assault of energy and performance, Five Of The Eyes is Portland Maine's newest rock act to hit the scene. Blending influences of Prog, Funk, and Latin, this is a group that will make you funk dance yourself into a full blown explosion of head banging rock. How about you salsa over to the … NOPE CAUSE NOW THEY’RE ROCKING YOUR BODY INTO CONVULSIONS. Try to tear your eyes away from the body melting heat as vocalist Darrell Foster tears up the stage with dance moves that put James Brown in a cold sweat.

The Band Droidz
Harlem NYC
Punk Rock
Show: Sat. July 25th @Bullshooters - Philly
w/ The Riverside Odds, The Unwanted and others TBA

It’s hard these days to find something musically outstanding in the myriad of genres, bands and performers that make up the euphonic landscape of today, it’s difficult to give your heart to one solid band that will nourish your soul and satisfy your cravings- until now. Now there is “The Band Droidz” – a band based in New York, with a New York soul, real New York zip-code and genuine New York city attitude and quality. You might be taken aback by their sound, a mélange of influent powerful notes like “The Clash” and “Nirvana” with a hint of “REM” on a rock-hard New York city background. 
Monk's  voice has a delicate texture that reminds you of dark luxurious chocolate that balances out the rough guitar and soulful lyrics , the melodic line induces a dream-like state in which the rhythmic accuracy of Compton Timberwolf on drums punctuates the flow of the music straight to the core of your being while the coarse base lines played relentlessly by Q-MAXX bring you back to reality just in time for you to realize that you are addicted. Addicted to good music.

Spaceship Days
Durham, NC
Pop Rock

Show: Thurs. July 23rd @Bullshooters - Philly
w/ Matthais and others TBA

Spaceship Days blends digital guitar effects, full orchestration, timeless piano, acoustic solos, rich vocal harmonies, vivid mental images, and intricate mixing techniques to create songs that have mass appeal.In 2009, the founding members of the band - Greg Torsone (guitars /production) and Chuck Cox (bass) formed the artistically matured  Spaceship Days, taking their name from a lyric in a Catherine Wheel song.A former America's Got Talent Finalist, fresh off of a Top 40 finish on American Idol, Adam and the band went straight into the studio, releasing 'The Thrill of Freefall' in March 2013. A string of successful west coast shows followed, including an electrifying performance at the legendary Roxy Theater in Hollywood. Spaceship Days returned home, and went back to work.
 After a stint playing with one of London's hottest up and coming bands Brian Avery returned to the States, joining the band soon after.The pop-rock outfit's 4rd album, Saving the Universe, recorded at their own Afterglow Studio was released in July 2014.

Philadelphia, Pa
Rock/ Progressive/ Experimental

Show: Fri. July 24th @Bullshooters - Philly
w/ Big Uncle, Primitives and others TBA

 was not until mid-2013 that the weakened – but ever-enduring - pulse pounded its way back to a heartbeat; and ironically, it was at first not Rausch’s piano chops – but rather his voice - that caught the attention of Grammy-nominated producer David Ivory (The Roots, Halestorm). While songs like "Minimalism" & fan-favorite "B.P.M.S." did well to offset the densely layered debut with respites of pop sensibility, the producer now challenged RAUSCH to an outright “commercial exercise” – a piece that, not entirely unlike the very études of Chopin, could serve a vital nuts-and-bolts purpose yet simultaneously stand on its own musical merits. “You need a 'Keep Yourself Alive' before asking the world to embrace 'Bohemian Rhapsody,'” Ivory implored. Challenge accepted.
Stepping away from the piano to briefly pick up his guitar, "Good Day" came to Doug almost immediately; and in just a few short months, the finalized recording - accompanied by 1st official RAUSCH music video, deftly directed by contemporaries in NYC’s JOLLY – was ready to go. In light of this, and considering the time still needed to formally convert ALL aforementioned darkness into musical form (i.e. Album 2), the vote was unanimous to release the new single right away. Pleasantly surprised by an almost over-night endorsement from current GN’R guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, apparently the band chose… wisely. Poised to reclaim the stage with a vengeance – and said new album – in 2015, RAUSCH is now more resolute than ever to indeed NOT LET IT DIE.

Angel Vivaldi
Princeton, NJInstruMetal, Progressive

Show: Sat. July 18th @ Bullshooters - Philly
w/ Godshed Eyes, Conscious Whispers and others TBA

DVT has been a huge supporter and extreme fans of Angel Vivaldi. Angel is a guitarist who has evolved over the years into one of best guitarists internationally. Since he has released his solo records, he demonstrates highly technical guitar playing with a real twist "MELODY". Most technical guitar players bombard you fast blazing shredding but leaving out the song aspect. Angel literally sings with his guitar playing and never leaving bored but rather he draws you in for the journey. I recommend checking out his youtube page which Angel constant is putting out Videos from his studio releases, in studio, webclasses and much more.
Angel has two releases "Universal Language" and just recently releases "Away With Words Pt. 1" you can get these at:
