House of Kenzo
Thursday, March 16, 1:00-1:50am
To the onlooker and passerby, House of Kenzo may look like some random girls dancing in post-apocalyptic garb on stage, but look and listen a little bit closer and you’re realize that this performance art collective constructs and deconstructs conceptual themes and ideas on whatever stage, house, arena, or gig you see them performing. If you’re not sweating, you’re not learning, sis.

Bamsworth Belli
Tuesday, March 13, 8:30-8:40pm
In an era where rappers in 2018 are more inclined to adlib through a verse rather than actually, you know rap, Bamsworth has the bars to remind folks what hip-hop is actually supposed to sound like.

What more can be said about Deer Vibes that hasn’t already been said? Since the late aughts, this indie rock orchestra has been hitting the region hard with their beautifully layered indie music in the vein of bands like The Most Serene Republic and The Broken Social Scene.

Jopo Da Son
Thursday, March 15, 6:30pm-6:40pm

16 the Olympus
Saturday, March 17, 2018, 8:00-8:40pm
Equally jazzy, indie and progressive pop, 16 The Olympus’ music is pretty much the best elevator music you’ve ever heard without coming across as cheesy.

Keedren Boston
Saturday, March 17, 9:15-9:30pm
Old school meets contemporary with Keedren Boston, a gospel singer from the 2-1-0 that might easily become your favorite new local singer. John Legend vibes for sure.

Dre' L.O.C.
Thursday, March 15, 9:10- 9:20pm
Husband, father, pastor and rapper, Dre’ L.O.C.’s musical vibe is reminiscent of ’90s “gangsta rap” in the vein of artists like Bone Thugs n Harmony, but lyrically the artist talks about his experience as a Christian.
