The Wilderness - (Set time: 11:10 PM)
Folk/rock/indie/blues band from Kingston, Ontario
UNI IKA AI - (Set time: 10:10 PM)
Uni  Ika  Ai [pronounced: oo-nee ee-kuh eye] is a Brooklyn based dream-pop / art-pop band comprised of music veterans Maia Friedman (Bobby, Toebow), Peter Lalish (Lucius, Elizabeth & The Catapult), Tom Deis (Via Audio), and Dan Drohan. Born in 2014 out of a desire for improvisation and experimentation, Uni Ika Ai are set to release their debut full length album in October.

While on tour with Lucius in 2014, Lalish would record improvised snippets made during sound checks and send them to Friedman, who would send improvised snippets recorded at home in Brooklyn, in return. The two musicians, once in the same room, would mold the abstract material into fully formed songs. Keeping A Golden Bullseye In The Corner of My Mind, releasing mid-October, finds beauty in perfect doses of peace and chaos and far exceeds the sum of its parts.
Charlie Parr - (Set time: 8:40 PM)
Charlie Parr
An easily confused and very shy individual, Charlie Parr has been traveling around singing his songs ever since leaving Austin Minnesota in the 1980's in search of Spider John Koerner, whom he found about 100 miles north at the Viking Bar one Sunday night. The experience changed his life, made him more or less unemployable, and brings us to now: 13 recordings, 250 shows a year or more, 200,000 miles on a well broke in Kia, and a nasty fear of heights. Resonator fueled folk songs from Duluth Minnesota.
