Vita and the Woolf is a Philadelphia-based band that has been melding a variety of influences in its powerhouse electronic style since it released its first EP Fang Song in 2014. The band’s head-turning live show has since grown to reflect both the range of frontwoman Jennifer Pague’s anthemic vocals and the music’s shape-shifting energy. In the past couple of years, Vita and the Woolf has toured with Rasputina, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and Bell X1. This summer they also made some festival appearances, including a performance at Firefly Music Festival. The band recently released its highly anticipated new album Tunnels.

Queen of Jeans is a female-fronted quartet from South Philadelphia. With '60s girl group-influenced vocal harmonies and textured melodic pop instrumentation, the “queens” seamlessly blend the best of their self-described “denimcore” and crockpot pop” genres. They’re also probably your mom’s favorite band, but they don’t like to make a big deal out of it.

$10 in advance / $12 general admission (standing room only)

Troy Ramey has an inherent ability to reveal his pain and draw you into his music; it is evident on his critically acclaimed debut EP When the Lights Came, featuring the haunting, introspective singles “Rosary” and “Song Man.”

After his father died during his sophomore year of college, Ramey transferred to Boston College. One day, he was overheard singing at work by local musicians. They invited him to join them for a series of jam sessions, and he honed his craft, using music as a way to grieve. In 2013, Ramey relocated to New York City to advance his career, eventually joining forces with accomplished producer Dante Lattanzi. Together, they have impressed industry leaders, attracted enthusiastic new fans, and caught the attention of the NBC singing competition The Voice.

Johnny Gates, a singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, California, is originally from Providence, Rhode Island. He started his first band in high school and, after a few years playing in the Providence area, Gates decided to move to Nashville, Tennessee. After working with some of the industry's biggest names in Music City, he moved to Los Angeles with his band, Runaway Saints. Gates has gone on multiple U.S. tours with the band, become a fixture at the prestigious Hotel Cafe, opened for Rod Stewart, and successfully auditioned for The Voice. Gates is working on his debut EP. 

Butterchild is a funk/soul band composed of five childhood friends who have played together for more than a decade. In 2010, they formed the WonderMics, gigging around New England for five years, playing a mixture of funk, soul, and hip-hop. In 2016, the band decided to rebrand as Butterchild. It continues in the tradition of the WonderMics, but with new sounds, more complex songwriting, and an emphasis on vocal harmonies.
