A Better Class Criminal
Performance at 12:10am  / From Philly
 Style: Rock/Hip Hop

While fusing together classic rock'n'roll and hip hop, A Better Class of Criminal brings a different element to the music scene. With influences ranging from Rage Against the Machine to Black Sabbath, from Beastie Boys to Iron Maiden, and from Cage The Elephant to Wild Cherry, A Better Class of Criminal has founded a certain unique blending of styles that seem to co-exist flawlessly. While sick of all of the 'same old same old', 'it's been done before', and 'they all sound the same' attitude towards the music scene, they set out to be their own category when compared to the rest of the bands out there today.

Performance at 9:40pm / From: Long Island, NY
  • HIGH-ENERGY, danceable punk that's fast, loud, and FUN.
    It’s not the 70s anymore in NYC – but the spirit of that era’s wild punk scene is alive, well and infused into the contemporary roar that’s blasting out of multi-generational Long Island based sensation Bad Mary. Building off the crackling success of their debut album Better Days – which garnered three first round Grammy ballot nods and whose “Forget About It” and “Don’t Know Where The Line Is” provided an edgy soundtrack to the 2014 NBA Finals – the foursome led by powerhouse vocalist Amanda Mac has a fresh bold task for their new EP: Killing Dinosaurs.

Performance at 8:50pm / From: Philly

Performance at 8:00pm / From: Philly
Psychedelic Rock
The minute you hear the hum of a vintage amp or a noisy 12 string jangle your transplanted to a surreal world at the bottom of the rabbit hole into a reinterpretation of music and reaches into your psyche and takes you the "listener" on a voyage of new musical journey and leaves you remembering the past and seeing the future..the Bohemian mule carries you ..thru the music like a story with blues, folk,mod,and psychedelic opuses
