9pm: Adverteyes
10pm: The Auditor General
11pm: Coltrane Motion

COLTRANE MOTION - best band I've witnessed live in the last two years. Will entertain with your socks on. What they give in energy to the live performance, makes the post game look like they took on a couple rounds of that tour boat going under Niagra Falls. Stream new album 'Hello Ambition!

"Genre-defying Coltrane Motion’s music is full of movement, life and exuberance. A blend of shoegaze, ‘60s psych, and electro-indie, this Chicago-based duo's sound is effective."

COUSINS - the hands up top applicant to this years festival. This band easily stood out over 1,399 other acts.

"My cousin Ben would be into this band. They're from Halifax and they play advanced music that's pretty and accessible, which Ben is into. My cousin Ryan might not be into this so much, but to be honest he has awful taste in music, so that's more of a compliment than anything."

THE AUDITOR GENERAL - a la death cab for cutie.

"They said it: 'The Auditor General will be hitting the road as often as they can to get you dancing out of the way so they can drink your beer.' Even with this knowledge, you may not be able to help yourself—the vocals are soft on the ears and the music is catchy as fuck!"

VICTORY CHIMES - bring on the homefield advantage.

"The new solo project of MontrĂ©al’s Jeff Louch. After years playing in other bands, Louch wrote and recorded his first album, Frozen Ghosts, in six short months, with help from a slew of local musicians including members of Besnard Lakes and Land of Talk."

ADVERTEYES - a mixed drink of recent Arcade Fire meets Oasis 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out' stage.

"Adverteyes is made up of six fine folks from Guelph, Ontario who sound like 'cabbage in a brine of gold.' So I guess that means some kind of sauerkraut or maybe kimchi? YUMMY!"
