Praised for her “alarming tour-de-force intensity” (The Examiner) and “impossibly beautiful but in no way forgiving” songs (The Deli), Meaghan Burke writes haunting, festively dark songs for cello and voice, part art, part pop, with witty, macabre lyrics and killer riffs.  With inspirations ranging from Nirvana to Cole Porter to Anton Webern, she tells stories of bedbugs, bedfellows, and the apocalypse, wedding her sundry influences of Brechtian cabaret, 1990s grunge, old-school blues, and avant-garde contemporary music. 

"Impossibly beautiful but in no way forgiving." - The Deli NYC

"...alarming tour de force intensity..." - The Examiner

"We admit, one could dispute whether this is pop. But let’s just say, it should be." - Robert Rotifer, FM4 Radio / Popfest Curator (Austria)

10pm- Smith & 9th Ward

Genre: New Orleans Blues/Funk/Jazz

For fans of: New Orleans Jazz, Blues, Funk and Brass Band music

SMITH & 9th WARD is a combo in the New Orleans, funky and soulful tradition.  We channel the likes of Dr. John, James Booker, Allen Toussaint and Professor Longhair to bring you New Orleans grooves with a Brooklyn attitude.  We consist of members of the OUTER BOROUGH BRASS BAND and we love playing funky NOLA tunes, traditional jazz standards and low-down blues. SMITH & 9th WARD: New Orleans grooves with a Brooklyn attitude. 

“Leyton-Brown’s physical stance at the keyboard comes closer to Joe Strummer than Dr. John, but she’s got skills that would make Mac Rebenack grin that trademark grin. Allison injected some old school stride into “Don’t Think Twice,” and her vocals on Crescent City classics like “Big Chief” and “Mardi Gras in New Orleans” were right on point. But it’s the little differences she brings that make her a not-so-secret weapon, like the Fender Rhodes sound she brought to the funky Scatassa original “BQEeze,” or the sizzling Clavinet vibe she conjured up toward the end of the second set that was straight out of Billy Preston’s “Outa Space.” Maybe the traditionalists might freak, but it’s a Brooklyn thing! They wouldn’t understand!” – J Hunter “Nippertown”
“After the bass drummer unexpectedly decided to lead a secondline into the bar room, which freaked out most of the people there, they came back in and kicked things up another notch. By this point, those of us who were dancing stopped caring about what the room full of lazy people thought, and we got up and got down in front of the band on a rousing finale.” – a fan

Genre: Rock-Hop/Funk & Blues/Stoner Soul
For fans of: The Hazelton Brothers, SmokeDawg Williams, Air Force One, Count Bassface

8pm- Gustaf Axel
Genre: Singer Songwriter
For fans of: Troubadours

9pm- Genna & Jesse
Genre: Vintage Soul Pop
For fans of: Soul and pop music from the 1960s and 1970s. Smart, fun, and sophisticated pop music.

Genna & Jesse are defined by a unique alchemy born of the quirky chemistry, intricate vocal harmonies and ardent storytelling which infuse their songwriting and vibrant performances. With whispers (and sometimes roars) of folk, blue-eyed soul, jazz, blues, torch song, and popular music from the ‘60s and ‘70s, their self-chosen genre “vintage soul pop” doesn’t fully encompass what they conjure up in their joyful live shows and sensual, deliberate albums. These two shrug off music industry conventions in favor of doing what feels good, and this genre-defying dedication to being current and free has an exciting and irresistible effect.

"With an old soul steeped in jazz and folk, Giacobassi's velvety vocals coast across piano keys on ballads like 'Don't Be Surprised.' Dyen boasts a storyteller's intonation; when the two join in harmony, it's like earth meeting fire." - Savannah Connect

"...incredibly catchy, with melodies and hooks that'll make pop cynics smile, and have fans of grown-up radio reaching for the volume dial." - Leicester Bangs Music Magazine

10pm- Christine Sweeney & The Dirty Stayouts

Genre: Americana, Country, Blues
For fans of: Merle Haggard, Bob Dylan, Lightning Hopkins

He is often accompanied by Alex Whelan, on backup vocals and guitar, blending tight harmonies with a broken down home guitar attack. 


10pm- Wavestate
Genre: Ghost-Modern
