Ahh, Thursday. We’re at the midway point now, but that doesn’t mean we’re slowing down. So lace up those walking boots, chug some water and shake out all those feelings you felt last night at the Savages show. Today is a new day kids, and we’ve got ten more artists you’d be silly to miss just ’cause you wanna take a nap.
 
Be sure to check out the rest of the schedule here.
 

Coke Weed @ Union Pool

Coke Weed is a band from Maine, and instead of some amalgamation of THC and speed, they sound like that moment just after you wake up and right before you hit the snooze button. Lucidly dream to their gauzy guitars and sugary vocals.
 

Dan Croll @ Mercury Lounge

This young Liverpool dude has the kind of falsetto that will give you shivers and make you wish his electro-seduction could soundtrack every moonlit walk you ever take.
 

Ex-Cult @ Baby’s All Right


Scratchy freak-fuzz from Memphis? Yes, please. You may know this band by its birth name, Sex Cult.
 

The Head And The Heart @ Music Hall Of Williamsburg

Think with your head, feel with your heart and then throw it all to the wind and give in to Josiah Johnson and crew’s foot-stompin’ folk noise.
 

Jensen Sportag @ Cameo Gallery


Hear that? It’s the sound of Nashville without guitars, courtesy of this Tennessee duo’s sticky, electro-tulle.
 

Sisqo @ S.O.B.’s

It’s self-explanatory why this is a must-see, given the assumption you have at least one nostalgic bone in your body.
 

Spaceships @ Pete’s Candy Store

L.A. friendship-havers Jessie Waite and Kevin LaRose joined forces in someone’s bedroom to kick stoicism to the curb and fill the gap with reverb, scuzz and Keanu Reeves lyrics.
 

Speedy Ortiz @ Baby’s All Right

Northampton, MA’s anti-folk twee kids’ debut album, Major Arcana, made feelings okay again. Thank gosh.
 

Traumahelikopter @ Trash Bar

RRRRRAAAARRGGGHHBBLLERGH. THAT’S WHAT DUTCH NOISE HEROS TRAUMAHELIKOPTER SOUNDS LIKE. AM I YELLING? Sorry, my ears are ringing.
 

Tweens @ Piano’s


Everyone needs more Ohio-based, lo-fi, doo-wop jangle-grime. XOXO. Muah.
