THE SONICS WITH BARRENCE WHITFIELD & THE SAVAGES / HENCHMEN

Since the beginning of garage rock, the northwest sound, grunge, or whatever anyone calls it, the Sonics set the precedence and the pace, and the sound that gave to every musician and band that followed the inalienable right to take rock to the edge of the universe, to explore the possibilities, to get out of the rut, experiment, and to scream your guts out, that you have arrived, and to continue that thought.

The Sonics have remained the most recognized sounds ever listened to by aspiring musicians and multitudes of fans around the world. WSG: Barrence Whitfield & the SavagesThe Henchmen

The Blow / Anna Oxygen

The Blow is a pop music duo comprised of Melissa Dyne and Khaela Maricich. They are bringing their "Unplugged" performance to a handful of cities within the Eastern Time Zone of North America. In the "Unplugged" show Dyne and Maricich play live instruments, together, on stage, rendering songs from the extended Blow catalog. The instruments played by the two in this new set up in fact employ a fair number of plugs, as well as a good amount of electricity. A lot of plugging and unplugging happens. The duo performs live with the same rig which they use to produce and record, an interwoven assemblage of analog electronics and modular synthesizers. There will be, however, no plugging in of laptops, video projectors, smoke machines, animatronic singing dolls, or acid effect liquid light shows. There will be two women standing across from each other creating waves of frequency and sensation that pulse back and forth between them. Viewers are welcome to plug themselves into this circuit and feel it. WSG: Anna Oxygen

Event Image Crushed Out / The Royal Blackbirds / Ms. Willa Rae & The Minor Arcana

Crushed Out is an electrified honky-tonk surf duo from Brooklyn, NY. With their joyous and high energy live show Crushed Out are known to melt cold cold hearts and set folks to dancing in the aisles. The husband wife duo's influences come from their shared love of 'atomic' 50's rock n' roll, Delta & Chicago Blues, and reverb drenched Surf guitar. Moselle commands the drums with a ferocious femininity and Franklin's soulful howl slaps back to an era when a man spoke his mind, creating a sound that delivers on all those things rock n' roll promised us so long ago.

Great Lake Swimmers / Woven Tangles

A Forest Of Arms is the sixth album from Tony Dekker’s Great Lake Swimmers and the follow up to 2012’s New Wild Everywhere. With a surging rhythm section, razor sharp violin, and flourishing banjo and guitars, Dekker and band mates have pushed their sound significantly, creating some of their most dynamic songs ever recorded.

Those familiar with the decade-long output of Great Lake Swimmers will recognize the thematic threads of beauty in the natural world, environmental issues and explorations of close personal ties that hold us together. The familiar versus the strange theme is also running through this record, both in the instrumentation and in the songwriting (“Zero In The City”, “I Was A Wayward Pastel Bay”). WSG: Woven Tangles

Lo-Fang

Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Lo-Fang – aka Matthew Hemerlein – conceived and wrote his debut album Blue Film while traveling around the world and across the United States over the last three years. His passion for making music led him to pick up and play with musicians in Cambodia, Bali, London, Nashville, Tokyo, and other points along the way. Songs were written in transit, in hotel rooms, and anywhere the moment inspired him. Billboard’s Jason Lipshutz writes, “Blue Film funnels Hemerlein’s various vagabond experiences in 12 tracks of ornate, rhythmic electronica worth disappearing in.”

Dan Deacon / Prince Rama / Ben O′Brien

With the success of Dan Deacon’s 2007 album Spiderman of the Rings, came an opportunity for the electronic-music iconoclast to increase the breadth and depth of his entire musical project. Deacon moved from self-contained computer music to orchestral epics. His interactive live show, honed in DIY spaces, was taken to museums and concert halls. He frequently expanded his performances to include a horde of side musicians. Gliss Riffer, an entirely self-produced record of almost all electronic sounds, is a return to Deacon’s Spiderman of the Rings-era process.

Hot Chip / Sinkane

Since their official formation in 2000 by old school friends Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard, the Grammy and Mercury nominated Hot Chip have constantly pushed the boundaries of what pop music can be. In 2003 they signed to Moshi Moshi and 2004 saw the release of Hot Chip’s first studio album Coming On Strong, an ambitious record that displayed a distinct aversion to the aggressive nature of processed digital dance music and instead reintroduced listeners to its humanity and original spirit . They were later joined by Felix Martin (programming/ synths,) Al Doyle (cello, synths, guitar, horn) and Owen Clarke (guitar, synths & visual artist) who each brought their own unique skills to complete the indefatigable five headed pop colossus. At this point the newly formed quintet signed a U.S and U.K record deal with DFA records and EMI. WSG: Sinkane
