Paris Monster - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Paris Monster
Garage. Geoff. Experimental.
Beat-driven. Employing heavy elements of funk and soul,
paris_monster closes a gap between synth-pop and old-school grit.
Solid earth beneath the soaring soundscapes and lyrical precision,
masses of noise and vocal singularity.
paris_monster's debut EP "It once had been kind." is now available
on iTunes.
Their animated video [pride] can be seen on vimeo.
Star Rover - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Star Rover
"Star Rover, the Brooklyn twosome of guitarist Will Graefe and drummer Jeremy Gustin, specializes in an alluring sort of pastoral punk that suggests a collaboration between Deerhoof and John Fahey."

- Time Out New York

Star Rover will be releasing a collaborative album with Grammy Award winning songwriter Jesse Harris on Dangerbird Records on February 10th. Lately, they've been busy collaborating with Petra Haden, Sam Amidon, Lars Horntveth (Jaga Jazzist), Larkin Grimm, Sam Owens (Celestial Shore), Lazar Davis (Cuddle Magic). They also recently recorded with Brazilian singer Tiago Iorc, and you can hear one of those songs, "Dia Especial", right here.

For their debut album as Star Rover, guitarist Will Graefe (Landlady, Jesse Harris, Larkin Grimm) and drummer Jeremy Gustin (Delicate Steve, Marc Ribot, Albert Hammond, Jr.) began with the music of John Fahey and ended up in their own corner of a skewed, over-driven, weird America. Western Winds, Bitter Christians is available now from FYO Records.

Star Rover's original compositions use John Fahey's guitar playing as a launching point for interstellar explorations. Those 6 strings, kick, snare, tom, and cymbals separate and recombine, lead and accompany, and alternately push and pull the time with incredible variety. Rhythmic drive comes as often from Will Graefe's guitar as it does from the drum set; Jeremy Gustin's languid drumming is full of song-like melodies; and a casually precise blend of kick drum and low guitar strings provides ample bass-register harmonic grounding.
Toebow - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
TOEBOW is Nate Ulsh, Jo-Anne Hyun, Maia Friedman and Martin Zimmermann (the latter two formerly of BOBBY). Comprised of dueling guitars, glittering synths, 4-part harmonies and acoustic/electric percussion, their music channels a variety of musical influences. TOEBOW weaves in between cultures and decades, drawing from R. Stevie Moore and Frank Zappa as much as it does from West African guitars, Balinese Gamelan and Surf Rock. They will be releasing a debut album in 2016.
