Young London - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Young London
Fresh off of this summer's Vans Warped Tour, Young London announce their US headlining tour with a new single. The "Let Me Go" tour will kick off on September 21st in their hometown of Boston, Massachusetts, and will commence on October 13th in St. Louis, Missouri, where they will join Stepdad (Quite Scientific, Black Bell Records) as direct support for their US headliner.

Young London's new single "Call My Name (Tonight)" will be self-released in conjunction with Maphia Records on September 11, 2012. The new EP, featuring the single as well as a special cover and a remake of an older song will be soon to follow at the start of the Stepdad tour.

Their self titled debut album was recorded with Mark Maxwell (Boys Like Girls, Blake Lewis) and has garnered critical claim amongst pop purists and dance music lovers alike. As Substream magazine described "With nothing but a whirlwind of positive lyrics and dance party styled beats, fans will love Young London for giving them a reason to get up and dance like nobody's watching. These two musical hipsters are creating fun and upbeat melodies that could be heard anywhere from driving along the beach to a rave party at two in the morning." Currently, tracks from the album are currently being played in all Abercrombie & Fitch locations as part of their Back-to-School campaign.

About Young London:
Matt and Sarah of Young London began writing music together in 2011. They quickly realized that their writing styles combined to form a unique, catchy electro-pop style. After their explosive debut at South by Southwest, they headed into the studio to start working on their first full-length album. With the direction of producer Mark Maxwell (Blake Lewis, Boys Like Girls), Young London completed their self-titled debut, to be released on Fugitive Recordings. The songs could be described as 90's throwback--as if Danny Tanner invited Daft Punk over for dinner.

The duo embarked on their first US tour this summer, and their spark ignited a buzz that reaches from coast to coast.
Young London wants you to fall hopelessly in love with their music. Are you ready?
Elliot and The Ghost - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Elliot and The Ghost
“A smoldering piece of dark rock, perfect for a Tarantino-esque cannonball run through the cool desert night. Elliot & The Ghost prove to be a unique mix of rock and roll, darkly tinged folk, and punk” – The Village Voice

Elliot & The Ghost came together in 2014 in New York City. With singer William Thompson, drummer Daniel Edwards, guitarist Brett Giroux, and bassist Connor Jones, the band’s very first performances were held in old Brooklyn loft spaces and scuzzy dives. Within a year’s time the group was invited as direct support alongside Weezer, and has since shared stages with the late B.B. King, Team Spirit, Miniature Tigers, amongst many others.

Artist Direct praised Elliot & The Ghost as “a vibrant painting with sonic colors spanning Nick Cave-style cinematic musings, surfed-up post-punk guitars evocative of The Smiths and The Clash, and eerily danceable beats that prove instantly magnetic. Still, descriptions don't do it justice. You've just got to let Elliot & The Ghost haunt you.” Flavorpill lauded their “brand of Southern influenced pop-rock,” and Gimme Shutter declared them “mesmerizing.” Similarly, CMJ applauded their “fresh, airy kind of surf-pop in the vein of early Rosebuds or the Shins stripped of cardigans and sent back to a dank basement to get a little tipsy and start all over.”

The band recently completed a North American tour, and is currently promoting a series of new singles with accompanying videos and artwork.
