Matte Black
Formed in Brooklyn, NY in the fall of 2010. Fuzzy dark psych, heavy riffs, haunting melodies, and tribal rhythms. The band's second full length album 'Dust of This Planet' was independently released on October 31st, 2015.
Mutant Scum - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Mutant Scum
In the spring of 2015 the Society for Estuary Waste Education and Research discovered an unknown radioactive substance near sewage lines in the vicinity of Newton Creek in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The substance was initially referred to as 'mutant scum' because of its viscosity and unknown origins. Trying to find the source of the so-called scum, another major discovery was made. Three subterranean dwelling humanoids horribly deformed by what we understand to be years of exposure to this toxic substance. They were found making a very loud, raucous commotion of sound, seemingly the only way they can communicate.

Little is known about the creatures themselves and research is ongoing as we try to determine where they came from, how they live, and how they have survived.

S.E.W.E.R. has been tasked with getting these creatures an outlet for their aggression and turmoil by providing them instruments and organizing events for them perform. S.E.W.E.R. has done so by enlisting the help of volunteer and local area drummer James to give the creatures a rhythmic foundation for which they can communicate. S.E.W.E.R. believes that the "Mutant Scum" (as they have come to call themselves after overhearing researchers discussing the aforementioned mysterious fluid), need to be seen and heard by the community to bring awareness to the atrocities that have been perpetrated against Newton Creek by years of unmonitored polluting by large corporations.
Holy Toast - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Holy Toast find solace in being three friends with a desire to make music that's more diverse than the contents of your grandmother's purse. Trimming away unnecessary elements like lyrics, a schtick, or a publicist, these Bethlehem Pennsylvania dudes are looking for the proverbial "good-time" with their jazz-punk post-rock rollercoaster of influences that allow them to play whatever they want while somehow sounding only like themselves. Wanna hear them? Their debut EP is available at
