Gypsyblood - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Gypsyblood
Gypsyblood formed in 2009 when longtime friends and former band mates Adam James and vocalist/drummer/bassist Kyle Victor healed the somewhat fresh wounds of their previous band’s breakup (initiated by Victor storming off stage after the last song and hitchhiking home.) The pair later made up and James invited Victor to hear demos of new songs he was working on. Gypsyblood was born shortly thereafter and the pair quickly wrote an impressive amount of songs together within two months.

Gypsyblood’s songs tend to start dissent among listeners trying to describe exactly of what their songs are reminiscent. Some common references include a strange amalgam of Pavement’s early hazy-pop singles, The Jesus and The Mary Chain and early Guided By Voices. Put simply, it’s a noisy, soft-focus approach to classic pop.

Man/Miracle
This local indie-rock outfit returns home after their triumphant tour with Rogue Wave. "This is an exceedingly exuberant, sweaty rock record. For as good a Man/Miracle m.o. as you're gonna get, listen to 'Multitudes' — it's a manic, twitching romp that trips all over itself with positively gleeful recklessness. Such is the sound of Shape: a bluster of furiously scratched-out dual guitar lines, galloping drum acrobatics and David Byrne-ian yelps. The album is full of brimming-over moments — even in the quiet, more deliberate corners of Shape, you can feel the band itching with anticipation. When the whole thing explodes again, a split second before the metronome probably clicked, it's an incredible rush. ... An excitable, exciting young band with everything to prove. " --eMusic.com
