XPresidents -Philadelphia  time: 7:10pm

Music is singular to the individual: We each bring something to the table the others don't have, and together we create something that is unique. If you were to take a cross-section of who we are, and what we do, you'd find permutations of that which has already been done: At the core, we're a power trio, and an MC fronts the band. Growing up in the late 90s, early 2000's unfortunately I remember that era of bands categorized as 'rap-rock' (..and zero guitar!!); yet none of those bands were equipped with a neo-soul wizard on the keys. Conversely, there are many r&b outfits that dabble in hip hop and soul; yet, I've yet to see one with a lead guitar player blowing LA rock guitar through a Marshall stack. We deal in rock, jazz, funk, reggae, neo-soul, and we play live. We can take to any stage, in any circumstance and do what we do without the aid of a computer. It's real, and that in and of itself, I believes sets this band apart. Marv has a story to tell, we help him tell it. There are 4 different versions to this story, and what I've laid before you is simply how I see it….

By playing a diverse array of genres, the Foxes were able to develop a unique sound that is entirely their own.

In Different Sounds - Philadelphia  time: 1:30am

In Different Sounds is the natural progression of a friendship between four independent musicians from the Philadelphia area. This indie-rock band combines the unique influences of each of its members into an earnest blend of alternative rock, pop, synth, and folk. In collaboration, they have created an environment that pushes each individual beyond their limitations. The result is an exciting group which is just as comfortable with energetic, electric mayhem as it is with dulcet, acoustic harmony. The band consists of Kate Kozak on keys, Jake Fuscia on drums, Lucas Waldburger on guitar, Patrick Downey on bass, and everyone on vocals (except Jake...but he really is the songbird of his generation). 

CHVNCE - Philadelphia  time: 12:40am

Chvnce is a new solo project from Hayden Chance. This project blends elements of electronic pop and psychedelic rock, giving it a unique and captivating sound. Hayden writes and records everything on his own and thrives on experimentation to harness his creativity. 
His self titled EP was released on April 21, 2015 and was a great introduction as to what he brings to the table as a songwriter. A coinciding music video for "Green Lady," Chvnce's first single, was shot shortly after the EP was released. In the beginning of summer 2015, Hayden began working on the material that would soon become his first full length album Guest Room.
After months and months of writing, recording and planning, Guest Room was finished and purposefully released on June 10, 2016 to capture the album's fun, summery vibe and make the tunes more relatable for listeners. This album truly shows the potential of Chvnce and the direction the project is heading. With a band full of some of the most promising up-and-coming musicians in the region, the future of Chvnce is looking bright
