Gilbert is a hard-rocking 5-piece out of northern Westchester, with a sound that's more like it's out of Monterey Pop. Check out Tara's soul-grabbing vocals and the eye-popping musicianship of Justin, Wilson, Eddie, and Owen in songs like Juicing the Swine (here). They've played the Paramount, Rockwood, and Towne Crier, all before graduating high school. It's no wonder they won their way onto the Party Stage in this year's Battle of the Bands.

When they're not sprinting up bluffs and sleeping on roofs, they're wowing crowds at Webster Hall. We can't wait to see these Friends on the Party Stage. SEE MORE VIDEOS HERE.
A lot's being said about Loose Buttons these days: This Lower East Side 4-piece has been described as “a blend of new wave and pop” (Billboard), “irresistibly sincere” (Consequence of Sound), and a “garage-rock-pop good time” (Vice). With rhythm-based Two Wolves (here), fuzzed-out Thrill, and twang-laden Am I The Only Reason, it's no surprise they're catching national fire. Catch Loose Buttons on the Party Stage and CHECK OUT MORE HERE.

You might say Cracker is of two minds. The minds of founders David Lowery and Johnny Hickman. The slow brood of Low (here) and the hard drive of Get Off This. But also two sets of California musical influences: Bay area hard-rock and inland country. It’s worked for them for 24 years, with hits like Teen Angst and Euro-Trash Girl. Their recent double album, Berkeley to Bakersfield, explores both sides. Welcome Cracker to the Main Stage and SEE MORE CRACKER HERE.

6:10 The Lone Bellow
How do you define The Lone Bellow? How do you pin down the intensity and urgency, the spot-on harmonies, emotional honesty, and musicianship? Maybe the best answer is not to define the hard-driving Time's Always Leaving (here), the raucous Green Eyes and a Heart of Gold, or the searing Then Came the Morning but to describe how the songs awaken the joy, longing, and spirit within you. Welcome The Lone Bellow to our Main Stage. SEE MORE VIDEOS HERE.
The Psychedelic Furs
When you look up the cannon of new wave rock, the first page you turn to is The Psychedelic Furs. Sprung from the UK post-punk scene, they scored hits starting in the 80's with Love My Way (here), The Ghost in You, Heartbreak Beat, and Pretty in Pink. They released seven studio albums, spawning several compilations, and influencing a new generation of alt rock artists. We're thrilled to have them headlining the Main Stage. SEE MORE VIDEOS HERE.
