This event is 21 and over
Drawing inspiration from 70s disco, 80s New Wave and 90s indie rock, Moscow's Pompeya weaves vibrant harmonies, melodic synth lines, and punchy guitar riffs to create unabashed indie pop. Their self-released debut quickly brought the group a large amount of popularity in their home country. Following extensive touring and television appearances in Russia and Eastern Europe, the group set to work on their follow up Foursome. The EP was recorded under the direction of Christopher Haynes in LA's Bedrock Studios. After signing to Gala (a subsidy of Warner Music) in Russia, and No Shame Records in the US, the group embarked on their first US tour in May of 2013. Tropical will mark the band's US full length debut, to be released in October 2013 through No Shame Records. "Power", "Slaver", and "90" are slated as the LP's first singles, each with new music videos and remixes.
In the state of multiplicity, we will find Loveskills . This one-man industry of music, Richard Spitzer, discovers himself through the craft of songwriting - producing textures of therapeutic synth, low frequency bass, and a balance of melodic heart speak. While new love kills the desire to surrender, ambitious heartbreak sets the stage. Loveskills comes in waves, different perspectives from the same vantage point in the heart of the city.
Philadelphia's electro-pop duo, City Rain, known for their high energy live performance, inspirational lyrics and beautifully shot music videos, was reformed in 2012 by Ben Runyan (vocals, keys, guitar) and Scott Cumpstone (guitar). The band experienced instant acclaim as their first single’s official video, "The Optimist” was featured on VEVO and hit MTV’s airwaves. Most recently, USA Today premiered the official video of City Rain’s latest single ‘Join The Human Race.' Both singles are a part of the band’s new full length LP entitled, “Songs For A High School Dance,” released May 6, 2014. Runyan described the album saying "Songs For A High School Dance captures the youthful fervor of a world wide open. After the seemingly never ending ambiguity of the postcollege life, Songs For A High School Dance finds the listener with hope, purpose, and a reclamation of identity.”
