Backup Planet (11:30pm)
[ experimental funk-rock ]

Rock ‘n’ roll epitomizes escapism in its purest form.

It’s not just artistic anesthetization either, but rather a galvanizing force that inspires us to keep pushing through life’s trials and tribulations. That’s why we still listen to Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Rush, and countless others all these years later. It’s the same reason audiences will be talking about Backup Planet’s second full-length album, Reactions, for a long time to come. The Nashville, TN quartet—Ben Cooper [keys, vocals], Chris Potocik [drums, vocals], Gavin Donati [guitar, vocals], and Blake Gallant [bass, vocals]—write arena-size anthems echoing with progressive intricacy, funk swagger, and even a little metallic edge. Giving listeners an inspiring and invigorating aural haven, their moniker couldn’t be more apropos…

[ The String Cheese Incident Tribute Band ]

“MONTU is an Oklahoma-based jamtronica act that’s been consistently building a name for itself in the Midwest and beyond. Based out of Norman, Oklahoma, the electronic-infused four-piece frequently takes their show on the road, having played from coast-to-coast at a number of festivals and clubs in addition to opening for the likes of scene favorites such as Umphrey’s McGee, The Disco Biscuits, Lotus, EOTO, Papadosio, The Floozies, and more. The group seamlessly fuses funk, jazz, rock, and R&B, all with the underpinning of electronic music, to create a unique sound that is wholly their own, and fans who have gotten a chance to catch the up-and-comers are left eager to hear more.” – Ming Lee Newcomb,

Astronomic compositions take the listener on an engaging journey while whimsical and captivating lyrics fuel the fire of musical imagery.

Graveltooth (Austin, TX)
[ Rock ]

The GravelTooth sound is equal parts hill-country funk and roots rock psychedelia.. but even more, it is a product of lives spent immersed in the Austin music scene.. Think of hot texas summers, swimmin’ holes, and sharing a bottle of whiskey with old friends. Their live shows conjure that rebellious spirit in all of us. It’s only rock-n-roll, but GravelTooth reminds us why we like it.
