Los Bandits
6:00-7:00 pm
Los Bandits
Knee Deep Shag
8:00-9:15 pm
Knee Deep Shag

Our sound has been described as similar to that of a check being cashed, an atomic wedgie being given, and even a kitty cat purring loudly. We are five members. We enjoy rock and roll, dancing, smoky bars, driving long distances in our van, quality time spent at truck stops, drinking free beer, Tron (the video game as well as the movie), waking up at the crack of noon, and yes you guessed it, writing band biography's. The music industry doesn't cater to bands this revolutionary. When is the last time you heard a cat purring on the radio? Exactly. You've never heard a cat purring on the radio. We are trying hard to change that, but until that day comes, and until hackey sack is sexy again, we are committed to staying up until 4am drinking free beer, playing rock and roll music in smoky bars and dancing with your older sister.

Domestic Problems
10:00-11:30 pm
Domestic Problems

Domestic Problems are a six piece band based out of Grand Rapids, MI. Having been playing for over two decades, they have built a national fanbase and have shared the stage with Barenaked Ladies, Neil Young, Rusted Root, Pat Benatar, Joe Walsh and Blues Traveller.

Joe Hertler and the Rainbow Seekers
6:00-7:30 pm
Joe Hertler and the Rainbow Seekers

Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers will make a sprightly young groove doctor out of anyone. With spectacular energy pulsating from every member of the band, the Rainbow Seekers could illuminate the very chambers of Heaven. Lead singer and Amish excommunicate Joe Hertler splashes through lyrical puddles of golden rain, leaving his audience wearing flowery headdresses and bubbling smiles. A ride on the Rainbow will take you across the mountains of Motown, through the fjords of folk, over the archipelagos of Americana, and—at last—into a funky firth, where only the fiercest of friendships can be found.

Wheeler Brothers
8:00-9:30 pm
Wheeler Brothers

Making music continues to be a family affair for Wheeler Brothers. The Austin, TX quintet traces a personal lineage of rock, folk, roots, Americana, and blues on its second full-length album, Gold Boots Glitter [Bismeaux Records], cooking up an irresistible and inimitable gumbo of styles in the process. Marching forward from 2011′s critically acclaimed Portraits, the group—Nolan Wheeler [vocals, guitar], Patrick Wheeler [drums], Tyler Wheeler [bass], A.J. Molyneaux [guitar, lap steel, back up vocals], and Nathan Rigney [guitar, backup vocals]—opens the door even wider for everyone to join the family.

What Made Milwaukee Famous
10:00-11:30 pm
What Made Milwaukee Famous

What Made Milwaukee Famous has been a stalwart of the Austin music scene since their inception in 2003. Singer/Songwriter Michael Kingcaid has employed a diverse range of musicians in the past decade, priding the band on not being backed into any corners, stylistically. With the release of their first two records, Trying to Never Catch Up and What Doesn’t Kill Us on Seattle’s Barsuk imprint, the band was touted for their abilities to channel strong musicianship and diverse songwriting into instantly, addictive hooks. Their “elegant pop” (Billboard) has landed them on the bill at a number of the mammoth festivals including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Sasquatch, SXSW and Lollapalooza, highlighted by a taping on PBS’s prestigious Austin City Limits with Franz Ferdinand. They have also shared the stage with the likes of Arcade Fire, The Black Keys, The National, Snow Patrol, The Walkmen, TV on the Radio, and the Pretenders to name a few; a testament to the band’s musical diversity and mutual respect with other artists in the industry.

The Real Fantastics

The Real Fantastics play Motown, Stax, soul and classic R&B favorites!

Hollow & Akimbo
8:00-9:30 pm
Hollow & Akimbo

Jon Visger and Brian Konicek first met as teenagers, bonding over a shared fascination with strange sounds and old tape machines. They recorded in basements and bedrooms, attics and closets, amassing an ever-evolving archive of song fragments and noisy four track experiments.

With the eventual addition of Mike Higgins on drums, Hollow & Akimbo is a continuation of that restless creative spirit. It is the culmination of years spent writing together. Each song is its own peculiar construction; a special blend of looped rhythms and intricate electronic arrangements, of Konicek’s wiry guitar textures, Higgins’ infectious drumming, and Visger’s dreamy, often melancholic, vocal melodies.

Augustana
10:00-11:30 pm
Augustana

Since starting while its members were in college, Augustana has built a remarkable history of their own. 2005's "All The Stars and Boulevards," its follow-up "Can't Love, Can't Hurt" in 2008, and  "Augustana" cumulatively exceed sales of 500,000 albums. In addition, they've enjoyed single sales of 2.5 million and counting. Meanwhile, "Boston", "Sweet & Low", and "I Still Ain't Over You" vaulted to the Top 10 at AAA Radio, while "Boston" reached #1 at Hot AC and landed in the Top 25 of Top 40. Not to mention, they've played to packed houses around the world while headlining and supporting the likes of OneRepublic, Snow Patrol, Dashboard Confessional, and more.

The Southern California, and now Nashville transplant group's fourth full-length album, "Life Imitating Life," and first for Washington Square and Razor & Tie sees singer, guitarist, and songwriter Daniel Layus wholeheartedly embracing Augustana's musical touchstones, while simultaneously progressing. His own journey proves central to these ten tracks, making for a passionate, poetic, and powerful story.

E-603
12:00-1:30 am
E-603

Coming out of the burgeoning Mega-Mash-Up scene (Girl Talk, Super Mash Brothers, The White Panda, The Hood Internet), E-603 takes a more musical approach, laying down some of his own instrumentation into the super fast cut and paste production aesthetic. His approach to genre-smashing dance floor mayhem has gained credibility outside of the college concert & party scenes, landing him an opening slot on US tour with Passion Pit. His 2009 release "Torn Up" was self-released and 3 tracks hit Top 4 on Hype Machine's Most Popular Tracks list.
