Berndsen
A man whose love of the 80’s is at his very core, David Berndsen is a bearded iconic pop figure in Iceland, famous for his sound and various videos that recreate an era and a distinct moment in time when music (and the costumes and aesthetics) from groups such as Soft Cell, OMD, Yazoo, Visage, the Human League and Ultravox triumphed worldwide.

Will Wood and the Tapeworms are a five-piece experimental rock outfit based out of northern New Jersey, called "the most interesting and magnetic entertainers in recent years" by New Noise Magazine, and lead by “intriguing and histrionic” (NJ.com) singer/songwriter and pianist Will Wood, who appeared entirely out of nowhere some time in 2015. Armed with cleverly-crafted and surreal anti-folk songs, Wood assembled a group of performers and began crashing around New Jersey covered in face paint and confetti. Unusual instrumentation, foreign scales, and highly theatrical performances with surprisingly catchy avant-pop tunes give Will Wood and the Tapeworms a unique and hard-to-define voice that refuses to be pigeonholed by genre. Will Wood and the Tapeworms dress up in drag and bowties, barrel around the stage hollering at the top of their lungs, and unpredictably swing from collapsing to their knees to collapsing into each others arms. Dying Scene calls it "a show experience like no other... will forever go down in history," and AXS Entertainment calls it a "journey into glittering hysteria." Turning the heads of artists, outcasts, weirdos, a fevered and intense rapidly-growing cult following, and an increasing number of industry insiders, Will Wood and the Tapeworms are proving themselves to be the biggest thing to hit the east coast in years. Don’t be frightened, it’s just a show.
