Red Velvet - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Red Velvet
A 21 year old blues man from Maspeth, Queens, Red Velvet is an artist who is not afraid to experiment with new sounds and write the truth. He has been compared to the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan, however, although very flattered, Red Velvet believes he is his own artist just like everyone else. He is finishing up his first album Modern Day Blues at the moment, largely recorded on his own, and has collaborated with several friends such as Knew Light, Mickey Mouse, and The Violator. The band consists of Pinz N Needles on drums and Knew Light on bass.
Polar Planet - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Polar Planet
Every musical career has twists, turns and unpredictability throughout. But, when two musicians on tour with two different bands meet by accident on a party boat in Austin, TX those musical paths would take them on one serendipitous journey. For singer/song-writer Eric Paquette and keyboardist Zack Cross, it took being re-introduced a year later to recollect that hazy day at SXSW under the beaming Texas sunshine. Neither could have predicted that they would form the entity soon to be known as Polar Planet a year later and that they would be opening for Panic! At The Disco and Atlas Genius in front of 5,000 people, without even having a single song released.

“Music doesn’t come alive unless you have the right architects to construct the sound. One thing that stands true throughout everyone’s musical background, there is no right or wrong way to approach music”, says Paquette.

With that goal in mind the two came together to create art in its purest form. Starting from Paquette’s skeletons of chords, both melodies and lyrics began to emerge and flow out like a rushing waterfall. It was instant chemistry. Soon after when Monte Arnstam hopped on drums, Reed Sutherland picked up the bass guitar, and Killian Karlsson slung on his Stratocaster, Polar Planet was fully formed.

Lush synthesizers, blistering leads, and heavy synth bass are just some of the textures that resonate throughout the songs of Polar Planet. Reminiscent of such scene 90’s alternative stalwarts as Third Eye Blind while channeling the indie-pop feel of both Bad Suns & Bear Hands, Polar Planet is poised to break out in 2016. Their first single will be heard soon and the ears that it hits will be gleaming with joy.
Haley Ganis - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Haley Ganis
You ever want to say "f*ck it" when love and life don't go your way? Haley Ganis has been there plenty of times. Her music is a blend of singer-songwriter, pop, and alt-country that speaks to these relatable times in life. She has been playing gigs in NYC for the past 2 years and will be releasing her EP in 2017. Check out www.haleyganis.com to stay tuned!
UFO FEV - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
UFO FEV
The name UFO FEV was given to him by Black Rob, another well-known rapper. His exact words were, "You're hot like a fever", hence the name FEV which stuck in the streets. UFO FEV’s distinct flow, clever self-written lyrics, Spanish background and obvious passion sets him apart from any other rapper stemming from Harlem. His songs are based on stories and topics of everyday life from the good to the bad to the ugly; Goals, death, stress, happiness, dreams, love are just a few. UFO FEV works with artists all over the tri-state and considers himself an independent artist
