The Gift - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
The Gift
The Gift is an indie band with a sound that ranges from pop rock to electronica using elegant arrangements that include anything from strings to subtle analogue synthesizers. They are pioneering icons in the Portuguese DIY scene, hugely successful in Portugal where they have had several no. 1 hits.

Sonia Tavares' powerful and versatile voice is perhaps their most emblematic trait, but media and fans often say that it is on stage that the band reveal their best with energetic, surprising and elaborate shows that can be adequately presented on big festival stages, arenas or small intimate environments like theaters and small clubs.

The Gift have played all over Europe, toured the USA and Canada several times, visited Australia and Asia but it is in Spain and Brazil that the band has become more established outside their home country of Portugal; where they have achieved gold/platinum status on record sales and topped the radio airplay charts for many years.

With albums produced in the past by Howie B and Ken Nelson, they are now about to release what the band considers to be their best record, produced and co-composed by Brian Eno and mixed by Flood. "Altar", the new album, is due to be digitally released worldwide on April 7th.
Friend Roulette - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Friend Roulette
After drinking from the fountain of jazz in college Friend Roulette met to piss our what remained. Ranging in size from duo, trio, to six or more friends on stage they have been recording, performing & touring all over for the past 6 years. FR has been recording a ton since the release of their sophomore full length, "i see you. Your eyes are red" last year and is looking forward to the spring release of "Matt Sheffer Song Book Vol 1." In 2017. Friend Roulette is Julia Tepper, Matt Meade, John Stanesco & Friends 🙂
"Friend Roulette never gives away the plot, but the distinct pleasure of discovering their dreamy Cabaret texture is enough to keep your ears duly occupied during the journey. - THE DELI

Friend Roulette has been adding members to their ding dang of musical friends since John got back from summer camp. Sounding like a concoction of Van Dyke Parks, Robert Wyatt and Aaliyah, Friend Roulette creates somewhat of an whimsical psychedelic chamber pop con cojones. With 2 drummers, violin, bass clarinet, ewi (electronic wind instrument) & the occasional string quartet, its a ding dang of a live show.
