Black Tape For A Blue Girl - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Black Tape For A Blue Girl
Black Tape For a Blue Girl is an American act formed in 1986. Their music incorporates elements of dark cabaret, gothic, rock, ethereal, ambient and neo-classical music.
Dark rock outfit Black Tape For A Blue Girl enters its 24th year with a new collection of sinister character sketches performed in theatrical cabaret style. Sam Rosenthal, the groups founder/keyboardist, is joined by vocalist Athan Maroulis (formerly of the pioneering electronic band Spahn Ranch) and guitarist/vocalist Valerie Gentile (formerly of The Cruxshadows).

"Musically sophisticated and immensely talented, wildly unusual and diverse in material and presentation, a Dada-esque circus carnival run amuck, and just plain good ‘not-always-so-clean’ fun." Boston Survival Guide
Copal - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Copal sets an evocative tone; lavish voices of violin and cello flicker against a twilight scape of electronic swells and textures, impelled by a driving rhythmic sense, and original melodies steeped in global musical traditions. NYC-based, Copal is lead by violinist/composer Hannah Thiem surrounded by an impressive cast of talented collaborators: Isabel Castellvi (cello), Rob Chamberlain (drums), Lorenzo Wolff (bass), Tripp Dudley (percussion). The band's sound is a steampunk melding of styles set on a world stage. Nordic melodies ride Middle-Eastern rhythms into the halls of a remembered past, Hungarian riffs blush hotly against Spanish-cadence, opulent harmonies from far-gone depths. "Beguiling" (First Coast News) and "artistically beautiful yet darkly tantalizing" (Maximum Ink), like lucid dreams, the sounds of Copal will take you away.
Jaggery - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
“Torture chamber pop.” “Darkwave jazz.” “Siren rock.” These are a few of the many attempts to describe the sound of Jaggery, an art-rock collective which weaves harp, viola, piano, contrabass, and drum kit into a universe of its own, setting the scene for “one of the most beautiful voices in modern music.” Powerful enough to harness the fiery churnings beneath a volcano as well as the ethereal light of a dying star, frontwoman Singer Mali’s voice regularly leaves listeners viscerally stunned and with goosebumps.
