Five Of The Eyes

A blistering assault of melody and energy from Portland, Maine. Having received such high praise as being called “The Mars Volta fronted by Jeff Buckley”, the band pays homage to the past while seeking to forge their own path. Blending elements of Funk, Rock, and Metal into one nimble, flying sonic behemoth, Five of the Eyes delivers their powerful sound with grace and precision.

Five of the Eyes has self-released two EPs and had the pleasure of touring the Eastern US opening for such acts as Rival Sons, Chon, The Contortionist, Auras, Intronaut, Moon Tooth, and Entheos. They are currently writing their first full length album, set to release summer 2017.

Long Time (MA)

**Could not make the rescheduled date** :'(


Mirth is a 3-piece indie rock band based out of Portland, ME that synthesizes elements from bands like Local Natives, As Tall As Lions, Dear and the Headlights, and Arctic Monkeys. The trio has produced a completely DIY 5-song EP which evokes nostalgia, introspection, bodily movement, and other emotions not far removed from their namesake.

Black River Union (CT)

“Black River Union reminds me of some of my favorite bands from the dawn of alt-rock, when competent, smart rock musicians re-discovered that they didn't have to conform to the standards set to relegating them to one demographic and marketing to just a fraction of the listening population. Black River Union has taken this challenge by the reins, and in the memory of so many bands past and present, has combined alternative rock and pop sound with contemporary metal and hard rock, lightened with lilting piano lines and awesome vocal work.” - ThirdHalfMusic.com
