This event is all ages
Saintseneca is a young band from Columbus, Ohio led by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Zac Little. Following in the footsteps of heartland bands who have sought to twist the music of the old weird America into new shapes – from the Violent Femmes to Neutral Milk Hotel – Saintseneca perform songs that sound familiar and uniquely original, all at once. The group utilizes a wide range of acoustic instrumentation (balalaika, mandolin, dulcimer, Turkish Baglama, floor percussion) with more contemporary elements such as synthesizers and electric guitars to create a seamless blend of soaring vocals and vibrant post-punk energy.
LVL UP was formed by Dave Benton and Mike Caridi while attending school at SUNY Purchase in late 2010. The project was intended to be a creative outlet for lofi pop songs with an emphasis on brevity. After recording a few demos and garnering a positive response, LVL UP became a full band with the additions of Ben Smith, Nick Corbo and Greg Rutkin. October 2011 saw the release of LVL UP's debut full length "Space Brothers" on cassette, followed by a vinyl release in February 2012 on Evil Weevil Records. The record received modest attention, exciting a small but dedicated fan base in the northeast United States.
LVL UP saw departure of guitarist Ben Smith late 2012. The now four-piece entered the studio winter 2012-2013 to record their second release, "Extra Worlds". This release experimented with both hi-fi and lo-fi recording techniques, while still keeping to the indie-rock/pop song structure of "Space Brothers". "Extra Worlds" was released on Double Double Whammy in April of 2013.
LVL UP has shared the stage with bands such as Real Estate, Beach Fossils, Japanther, The Babies, Bomb the Music Industry, and Joyce Manor.
Quiet and loud, screamy and melodic, Glocca Morra pummel you with a skillful abandon. Much akin to a band like Bear Vs. Shark who could so perfectly walk those opposing tightropes, Glocca Morra are blurring the lines of post-hardcore note by note and scream by scream. You can get the band's Museum Mouth EP for just $2 and it is packaged inside of a brown paper bag with hand drawn art. Can anybody say hell yeah!?
