Meet The Performers:

Kid Felix 8:00-8:45pm
From Laurel Springs, NJ.

After forming in May 2011, Kid Felix quickly began to make themselves known within the Philadelphia music scene. They released their first EP November 2011 called 'Head Above Water', and with its success they gained international exposure as the Grand Prize regional finalists of the 2012 Hard Rock Rising Global Battle of the Bands, as well as playing both Bamboozle and the Warped Tour in the summer of 2012. Kid Felix then went on to solidify there role in the music scene when they released their second EP, 'Young Luck' in October 2012. 'Young Luck' grabbed the attention of some very important figures in the music industry today, allowing them to play to huge crowds in venues such at the TLA, World Cafe, Susquehanna Bank Center, Electric Factory, House of Blues, Starland Ballroom and more. Now on the heels of their third release, 'Rivals', as well as a brand new music video for "I Am the River", Kid Felix finds themselves touring the East Coast, playing music festivals and growing their markets. 

Sexual Thunder  7:00-7:40pm

From New Orleans, LA

Sexual Thunder! is an American funk music act, based in New Orleans, Louisiana.
This eight (nine?ten?) piece funktastrophy brings together elements of deep funk and contemporary dance music to create grooves to keep your body moving. Spreading a message of peace, love and understanding, Sexual Thunder! expresses a fresh and unique voice to the musical world.

from Philadelphia, PA. 

Robbery Inc. 5:00-5:40pm
From Los Angeles, CA.

Robb Torres, front-man of Robbery Inc, has always been about testing his diverse limits.  The accomplished guitarist, and former member of the alt-rock band TRAPT, draws from his varied sonic roots while continually evolving as he moves to the front of the stage.  Torres was ready for something that would test his limits not only as a songwriter and guitarist, but also a lyricist and singer.  Enter: Robbery Inc.Lending lead guitar and vocals for the first time in his new project, Robbery, Inc., Torres is excited to let his brand of blues infused rock speak for itself on the group's debut release: The Crave EP.  Torres, along with Jonah Wei-Haas on the keys and Matt Camgros on drums, deliver a straightforward rock punch that brings out a certain head-nodding, air-guitaring response elicited by only the best in music that connects to the listener.
Rock is alive and well, and Robbery Inc is solid proof.

Stargazer Lily 4:10-4:40pm
From Philadelphia, PA.

Know their roots: Hayes and Rosetti first started performing together nearly seven years ago. After receiving a developmental deal from Arista Records, the duo moved to Los Angeles but decided to relocate to Pennsylvania to start over with a new project.
Teaming with Miades and Scooter, Stargazer Lily quickly developed a regional following and became a staple of the Philadelphia and New York City club circuit.
"I come from alt-country, rock background. Susan comes from much more of a pop background. We have a lot of diversity. We both brought opposing points of view to the band. It's sort of an 'Odd Couple' kind of thing," Hayes says.

Zymotic Flow 3:20-3:50pm
From Philadelphia, PA.

Zymotic Flow is the reincarnation of itself into a modern 5 piece high energy rock and roll band. From 90s alternative rock to modern pop and classic rock accents they cover a wide range of dynamic rock. Originating in the philly/ southern jersey scene the current line up is: Alex Kiedaisch (vocals) Don Bozzuffi (guitars) Craig Stenger (bass) and Erik "Chauncey" Cistaro (drums/smash) and Dani Beth Riccardi (Keyboards). Zymotic Flow showcases are Rock and Roll parties!

Post War Dream 2:30-3:00pm
From Philadelphia, PA.

The band synthesizes a unique yet accessible sound from a wide array of genres including folk, pop, and indie. The group evolved from a two-piece guitar and drum combination to a full outfit utilizing keys, bass, guitar, and drums. The music is inspired by the repressed wanderlust of millennial wage slavery and the crushing hope of attaining something more.
"The initial outing from Post War Dream, "We'll Be Just Fine," is in many ways, a requiem for a lost generation. Whether haunted by the pangs of unrequited love, the self-loathing of addiction, or the regrets lost to time, each track is a specter of vanished youth. Despite the melancholy leitmotifs of the album, the singular message is that regardless of the trials of the anguish and beauty of life, we persevere and emerge wise - willing to endure." - Colin Kenny, independent writer. For fans of bands like The Lumineers, Death Cab for Cutie, Thrice, Kings of Leon, The Head and The Heart, Fleet Foxes, Weezer, Jimmy Eat World, Bon Iver and Mumford & Sons.

The Quixote Project 1:40-2:20pm
From South jersey Pines/Philadelphia

We are a neo-roots music outfit. From Rock to Rockabilly, Bluegrass to Blues we like to pull from traditional genres to blur the fine lines of modern music. "Frontman Jeff Selby and a revolving cast of musicians have distilled the multi-genre sounds of a beachfront music festival into a remarkably cohesive live set, with hints of bluegrass, folk, and rock in a style that would be pigeonholed as “jam” if the songwriting wasn’t so explicitly pop-oriented" says Dave Fox of MUSIC WITHOUT LABELS.

From Philadelphia

Philadelphia's Dr. Beardfacé and The Spaceman may be the least genre-specific band you will ever hear. Influenced by a variety of music ranging from punk and indie rock to 50's rockabilly and doo wop, Dr. Beardface blends elements of these influences with clever lyricism to deliver high-energy, solid punk and roll songs that are easy to drink to, fun to dance to, and impossible not to sing along to. Since their inception, the band has quickly gained buzz with positive press and reviews in magazines like Dying Scene, That Mag, and Rock Era Magazine, as well as airplay on 93.3 WMMR, 93.7 WSTW's Hometown Heroes, 93.5 WZBH, Goldie's Garage Show on Sirius XM Radio, UK's Amazing Radio and many other FM and online radio stations.

In January of 2017, the band signed with the NYC/Austin based punk label Altercation Records, and soon after premiered their first music video on Blank TV for their single "I Need It". The video was shot, produced, and edited entirely by the band's guitar player, Matt Boyle, and can be seen on YouTube and Blank TV. In May 2017, Dr. Beardface will release their first full length LP on the Altercation label, titled "Here for the Scraps". They are currently touring the U.S., including stops in Austin, TX for the 2017 SXSW festival, and are already writing and recording songs for a follow up album. Their live show is explosive with energy, incredibly fun, and not to be missed, so make sure you catch Dr. Beardface and the Spaceman when they roll into your city.

Elissa Janelle Velveteen  12:25-12:45pm
From Philadelphia

Jolly Jane 12:00-12:20pm
From Audoban, NJ

It was a magical day when Grace Dolores caught the attention of Jakki Roberts by playing an array of interesting hip hop covers at a Sidecar Bookings open mic. Immediately, the two were drawn to one another. One jam session led to the next and the pair finally decided to not only support one another's solo career, but to join forces and create new, original music together. Platonic wives, best friends, sisters, two very special us what you want, but we prefer to be called Jolly Jane.
