Ruckzuck - In an effort to keep alive the tradition of the Psychedelic Freak-Out show, Ruckzuck carve their place in the music world with improv space-jams and melodically dark songwriting. The humans in the band are two garage rocking brothers from the suburbs of Long Island, Nick & Matt Bedo and a kazoo humming elf from the mountains of Pennsylvania, Faith Kelly.

Francesca Shanks - (Sounds & Tones) Francesca Shanks is a two-person band driven by synthesizers, baritone ukulele, Francesca's heavenly voice, and a lot of rumination on nature, waiting, death, and time. Band members Francesca Shanks and Joe Aidonidis combine their talents to create a dreamy wall of sound that's worth a close listen.

The Chain Letter - (Sounds & Tones) A bedroom-rock duo from South County that will rock your face right off.
