Day Wave - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Day Wave
Jackson Phillips has only been creating music under the moniker Day Wave since Fall 2014, and in just under six months the 25-year-old has become one of the most buzzworthy and refreshing artists to burst onto the DIY scene. A departure from his synth-heavy work as one half of electro-pop duo Carousel, Day Wave crafts dreamy, lo-fi, guitar-driven indie-pop that is already turning heads. With a modest but top-quality catalogue of a five-song EP and limited run 7", Phillips – who writes, produces, and performs all of his songs, and tracks each instrument himself on an old reel-to-reel, no less – is currently working on his debut LP and live show. Having already claimed multiple #1 Artist slots on Hype Machine and the Zane Lowe/Apple Music seal of approval with his lauded 'Headcase' EP, in addition to play list adds on Alt Nation, XMU, KCRW (including Jason Bentley’s Morning Becomes Eclectic), KEXP, WXPN, and more, Day Wave shows no
signs of slowing down.
Clean Spill - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Clean Spill
Santa Barbara surf rats, Clean Spill, might come off reserved but their home brewed mixture of garage flavored punk rock and power pop is where they let it all out. Getting a cue from influencers like, the Growlers, The Strokes, and Twin Peaks, Clean Spill dishes out a tasty blend of crisp, indie, surf rock that is totally indicative of their lifestyle.

Led by surf industry royalty, Pat Curren, on vocals (his father is three time world champion, Tom Curren), Geoff Shea on bass, Cameron Crabtree on guitar and Charlie Fawcett on drums, this low key quartet started playing their instruments when they were tiny groms in between catching waves. They eventually founded the band in 2013 and released their first EP, XO, in 2015. The band is currently in the studio recording their first full length album set to come out by 2017

STORY [So Far]

FUTURE FEATS had a busy Summer last year (2013), having just debuted in May with opening support dates with Youngblood Hawke / The Colourist and another date with Hunter Hunted (July), the band found time to record a handful of demos that resulted in the shimmering track “Cities in Wonder”. Produced by John Fields (Cut Copy, The Presets) and mastered by Emily Lazar (Vampire Weekend, HAIM), the song on first listen feels upbeat but the lyrics reveal some fairly dark themes. Josh, Future Feats’ lead singer and songwriter, recalls the inception of the song…

“Cities In Wonder” started out as a final plea. It was a cry for help. I was acting out of desperation to make music, and I needed a reason to keep going. My life at the time was spiraling downwards at an incredibly rapid pace, and writing this song was the most terrifying and freeing experience that I could’ve possibly expressed in that moment.

I was crashing in Chicago on one of my friend’s couches. I felt at home on the 21st floor of his high-rise studio apartment. It was either that or moving back to a small town with nothing to show for my own hopes or existence. I remember waking up hazy after another long night of heavy self-medicating. My mind, however, was notably clear when I went to step out onto the balcony.

The sun was setting by this point, and the skyline was alive with colors. Light was bouncing off of buildings, and the noises from the street echoed a memory from when all of this first felt new to me…

It might as well have been described as love at last sight.

It was inescapable. Lyrically, the song quickly started to write itself. I was telling the truth for once. I was being honest with myself, and confronting all of the thoughts that constantly rattled around in my head. I was speaking in phrases so strange that if anyone were to overhear me they might assume that I was delicately dictating a personal suicide note.

The main theme was simplistic from the beginning: I’m not going back. I’m not leaving. I’m not finished with this unending search for artistic credibility. I’m not giving up, I’m never going away. Because once I do…then it really is all over. Then all of this worrying and struggling was for nothing. Putting an end to my music would be no different than if I had actually gone through with ending my own life. They’re one in the same, they’re connected. I have the power to control my own fate. I have the ability to make anything happen no matter what my given situation. We all do.

“Cities in Wonder” had its worldwide radio debut on Hannah Rad’s “Belly of the Beast” show on East Village Radio.

The Deli took notice and proclaimed, “[Future Feats] could be one of the next big bands coming out of Chicago.” Also, “Cities In Wonder” was featured in a Microsoft campaign profiling NYC Couple Chloe Melas (Hollywood Life, Vh1’s The Gossip Table) and her fiancé Brian Mazza (VP of Operations at Paige Group and Co-Founder of menswear brand Windsor Custom) called Connected For Life.

In addition to recording their own brand of original material, FUTURE FEATS began remixing songs for other acts including: The 1975, Tegan & Sara, Bleachers, Youngblood Hawke and Hunter Hunted.

As the year came to a close, the band was inspired by many artists but kept coming back to the work of David Bowie, Keith Haring & Nile Rodgers and their 1983 single “Without You”. As it was the 30 year anniversary of the song, they decided to make their own re-interpretation, which is now available to stream. The Keith Haring foundation even gave the band permission to modify the original artwork Haring had made for Bowie to use with their track release.

The opening of 2014 brought Midwesterners another chance to catch FUTURE FEATS live, opening for Betty Who and Ghost Beach. With only eight actual gigs under their belts, their explosive live show has already caught the attention of local critics as well…

“The band is high energy and musically pulling comparisons to the more pop-filled elements of Passion Pit….based on the sample sounds on their Soundcloud, could be one of the next big bands coming out of Chicago.” – The Deli Chicago

“Every shred of energy in the lead singer’s body was left on the stage. After the show, I found out it was their first show…. ever. Check them out if you get the chance.” – Music That Isn’t Bad

“[Future Feats] throw a hell of a show” – Planet B

The band is currently finishing tracks for a debut EP…
