DIRTY MAGS – And then they got signed and then we all came to watch. Riding the right coattails into the hearts of many synth-rock loving, knee-bending, beat fanatics, Dirty Mags bring a fresh feel to the classic sound of The Horrors.
THE LUMINEERS – Noted by NXNE under “The Best You’ve Never Heard” category, The Lumieers put on an exceptional soft-rock, multi-faceted harmonic presentation of energetic sweet synth-rock. Bringing out all their bells, strings and whistles, the wonderfully fused sound was sweet-rock.
YOUNG EMPIRES – Top time slot at the Horseshoe Tavern on the Saturday night of NXNE, these guys had the prime time, hometown advantage. Disco hungry, with all the snap, crackle and pop you can handle. Snappy, youthful and accordingly young.
