The Grasshopper Lies Heavy (11pm - 11:45pm)
As their name alone implies philosophical proportions, what the Grasshopper Lies Heavy creates is not an ancient Chinese secret. Instead, their instrumental music is a modern hybrid of all different kinds of metal – sludgy, clean and twisted.
Verisimilitude (10pm - 10:45pm)
Close your eyes and let two dudes and a girl – probably with doctorates in music therapy - sooth the voices in your head with tranquil, psychedelic instrumentals. But don’t expect some low-key shit, Verisimilitude’s knack for gaining momentum and originality proves that great things come in threes.
Crown (9pm - 9:45pm)
Chameleons of rock ‘n’ roll, three-piece Crown can switch from being psyched-out to surf ("The Ballad of One Eyed Neal") all the way to acoustic balladry (“Methylone Man”).
Vetter Kids (8pm - 8:45pm)
Texas super group formed from fragments of other bands, Texas Is Funny-signed Vetter Kids should be called Cobain Kids, ‘cause they’ve effectively combined grunge rock with pop sensibilities, much like the Nirvana frontman.
Mr. Pidge (7pm - 7:45pm)
Sounding like a demented, bastardized rendition of retro synthpop, Mr. Pidge relies on backtracked instrumentation and electronically deepened vocals for that slightly disturbed, but totally “fun” effect.
