***BOOHER*** 11:30pm
Former frontman and songwriter of Austin, Tx's Zykos, Michael Booher, is back with his own band! After finishing an LP in December of 2014, with producer Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Trail of Dead, Heartless Bastards, Patty Griffin, etc.), the record is poised to find a label home in the coming months. The record is 10 Rock & Roll songs of varying intensity; a family affair, featuring Will Sheff of Okkervil River, Cully Symington on drums (of Afghan Whigs, Cursive, Okkervil River), Michael Kingcaid of What Made Milwaukee Famous, Doug Walseth, Mike St. Clair (of Saint Clair, Okkervil River & Polyphonic Spree), Matt Roth on bass, and the list goes on. With multiple records poised to be made, look forward to many more songs and multiple genres to be covered in the near future.

***ISLAND BOY*** 10:30pm
Island Boy is the ongoing project of San Diego-based, Puerto Rican musician/producer Richard Hunter-Rivera. Incorporating elements of French house, reggaeton, latin freestyle, and new wave with crooning vocals, Hunter-Rivera’s music pays homage to the art of modern songwriting while also exploring complex recording processes that result in dense, cinematic, and surreal soundscapes. In late 2012 Island Boy released a debut EP on Rita Records featuring a heavy-dose of sampling and live signal manipulation, and a production style that carries over into Hunter-Rivera’s first full-length effort, Basic Instincts, released in June 2014 on Rita Records.

***TWINSMITH*** 9:30pm
Alligator Years expands upon the charming surfy haze of Twinsmith's 2013 eponymous album and "Honestly" single, with the band pushing themselves musically while moving toward a more dynamic pop sound. Each diverse track is imbued with an individual voice and style, and ranges from propulsive, melodic rock ("Seventeen") to buoyantly playful pop ("Alligator Years") from soaring, sing-along retro pop ("Is It Me") to sumptuous, evocative new wave ("Constant Love"); from shimmery, summery pop ("Said and Done", "Haunts") to moody, slowburning ballads ("Dust", "Carry On"). There's a youthful sense of longing and exploration that permeates the album, which reflects on the highs and lows, advantages and disadvantages, hopes and fears of 20-something life with crafty, unassuming depth. Not just any band can examine anxiety, uncertainty, and commitment through tales of homicidal girlfriends and zombie apocalypses with such aplomb. Written throughout 2014, Alligator Years was recorded in Omaha, NE and Des Moines, IA, with the production team of The Envy Corps' Luke Pettipoole and Brandon Darner, who's also worked with Imagine Dragons, as well as Micah Natera.
