Animation Block Party, the largest animation festival on the East Coast, was attended by over 4500 fans, filmmakers, industry executives and distributors in 2013, receiving press in the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, Gotham Magazine etc.

Indiewire says, "The coolest (and arguably one of the best) animation festivals in the United States is… Animation Block Party."
Blackbird Blackbird - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Blackbird Blackbird
Blackbird Blackbird is the moniker of San Francisco-based wünderkind Mikey Maramag. His unique style of dreamy folktronica recalls influences from all ends of the musical spectrum; deeply textured, hypnotic songs pay homage to psychedelic pop the likes of Caribou and Washed Out, while the warmth of analogue instrumentation spliced with digital artifacts hints at contemporaries James Blake, Four Tet and Mount Kimbie.

Anthemic, dream-driven themes inspire Blackbird Blackbird's work, where layers of electronic texture drape over organic sounds and ghostly vocals. Within elongated song structures, Blackbird Blackbird harnesses thematic elements of dynamism and composition to create depth and complexity, while never losing sight of his pop sensibilities.
Colleen Green - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Colleen Green
Inspired by the honesty of freaks like Mike Hunchback, the shit-fi of DIY bands like
The Thermals and Nobunny, and all the poppiest melodies of her favorite singles, stoned songwriter Colleen Green delivers the original pop soundtrack to the days you spend in a daze. Her albums run the gamut in musical styles, from Ramones ripoff pop punk to dreamy, stoned drone to getting-ready-for-da-club shit. It’s dumb, dirty fun for the most part, but it’s also sweet and sincere. Listen once and you will understand that it’s as real as the girl herself.
