EZTV – (Set time: 2:30 PM)
Ezra Tenenbaum reeled Michael Stasiak into the band when he told Michael that his new songs sounded a little bit like Teenage Fanclub, and that he needed a drummer that could play like Jody Stephens from Big Star–after a bit of flattery like that, how could he refuse? But even though Ezra, bassist Shane O’Connell, and Michael all share a deep love for Chilton and Bell, there are plenty of other wonderful bands and songwriters that echo from inside of Ezra’s songs (which he writes and demos in his bedroom like you or I breathe). EZTV has a whole lot of affection for Midwest power poppers like Shoes and Dwight Twilley, but also a definite love for left-of-the-dial bands from across the pond like Orange Juice and The Go-Betweens. Ezra’s chiming guitar riffs ring perfectly within classic pop song structures, while Shane and Michael provide groovy, dynamic rhythm and keep the sneaky hooks and riffs clicking like the gears of a fine watch.
Sannhet – (Set time: 11:15 PM)
Founded in late 2010, the instrumental trio known as Sannhet has amassed a diehard audience within Brooklyn, NY’s broad underground music circuit through their abundant live performances throughout the borough, always choreographed with electrifying visuals. Known Flood, Sannhet’s sprawling debut LP, features nearly forty-five minutes of their electrified post-metal, fueled with domineering riff-building movements and intense percussive hostility, unifying in a slightly blackened and trance-inducing atmospheric style, captured by Colin Marston (Krallice, Behold… The Arctopus, Dysrhythmia) and mastered by Carl Saff.
The Range – (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Potential is the new album from producer James Hinton under his alias of The Range.

Hinton made the computer his primary instrument after falling under the spell of Baltimore club, bringing in his broader sonic influences from early ’90s jungle, early ’00s grime and mid ’00s electronica to a new sonic whole. The software was the thing at home, but what excited the young producer was the network, and where he spiraled was YouTube. Potential uses as its backbone a series of vocal samples that Hinton has found in the forgotten corners of the site, guiding us around the hinterlands of YouTube, introducing us to unknown artists expressing themselves unfettered by the constraints of industry, lost in the infinite potential of an audience unknown.

Potential is a record steeped in histories – of its characters, of its forebears – but is startlingly new and alive: the network may be ones and zeros but the circuitry here runs on blood, still.
Noveller – (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Noveller is the solo project of Brooklyn-based sound artist and filmmaker Sarah Lipstate. She has performed in Rhys Chatham’s Guitar Army, and as a member of Glenn Branca’s 100 guitar ensemble. In March 2008, Lipstate joined Parts & Labor as their new guitarist and completed several U.S. and European tours before leaving the band in July 2009. Noveller has toured supporting Xiu Xiu, The Jesus Lizard, and Emeralds.
Meredith Graves – (Set time: 3:10 PM)
More like a conversation between friends than a collection of songs, Devinyl Splits No. 2 is an incredibly personal release for Kevin Devine and Meredith Graves. Kevin and Meredith each contribute a song that speaks to parts of their past that still haunt them today. The collaborative project takes both artists to a deeply emotional place.

“Took The Ghost To The Movies” is the first song Meredith Graves has released under her own name. The song was recorded with fellow Perfect Pussy member Shaun Sutkus in a Brooklyn bedroom, with vocals recorded in a Melbourne hotel room. Fueled by an anxious pulse and filled with echoing, heart-heavy vocals, “Took The Ghost To The Movies” is a strikingly intimate kickoff to the split.
Olga Bell – (Set time: 3:50 PM)
Born in Moscow and raised in Alaska, Olga Bell is an American composer, producer and performer based in Brooklyn. At home in a wide range of musical settings, Bell has worked with composers Osvaldo Golijov and Philip Glass, soprano Dawn Upshaw, the rap group Das Racist, members of the St. Petersburg, Tokyo, and Juilliard string quartets, and the artist Zachary Lieberman. Bell’s output includes full-length Diamonite (2011), a six-track EP (2008) and numerous singles, covers, remixes and videos. She is a current member of Dirty Projectors and a former member of Chairlift.
Hunter Hunt-Hendrix – (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Greg Fox – (Set time: 4:30 PM)
“Good drummers aren’t uncommon. Great ones are. We still mourn Keith Moon of the Who and John Bonham of Led Zeppelin as the jolly bashers of modernity. Here comes the future, they seemed to be telling us with their sensational ka-blammo. Together, they popularized the notion that, in rock-and-roll, a drummer’s unsolemn duty is to establish a sense of time while happily smashing it to bits. Greg Fox reactivates that idea for the Information Age.”
