Peach Pit - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Peach Pit
Peach Pit was brought to life in 2016 with the release of their now coveted debut EP, “Sweet F.A” (F.A. meaning “fuck all”, after lead singer Neil Smith's love for the lazy life). Originating in Vancouver, Canada, the group formed when high school pals, Smith and Chris Vanderkooy, decided to collaborate on a musical project. Peter Wilton and Mikey Pascuzzi joined them on bass and drums creating their "chewed bubblegum pop" sound.

The group melds teenage angst with bummer summer vibes that have them sounding somewhere between Mac Demarco and Homeshake. With their laid back sound and lush lead vocals, their songs tell stories of backstabbing best friends and dying end of summer romances.

The group quickly developed a dedicated local fan base through their energetic live shows. In February 2017, a YouTube channel sent their self-titled track, “Peach Pit” viral after discovering it on their Bandcamp. The group quickly started to amass an international following and booking requests to play worldwide.

Peach Pit’s quirky online posts and campy Ned Flanders-esque uniforms have ignited a highly engaged fanbase. They’re now gearing up to release their debut LP, “Being So Normal”, on legendary indie record label Kingfisher Bluez in September 2017, after which they’ll hit the road, touring the U.S. and Canada including a Bumbershoot festival date, with a European tour in early 2018.

Peach Pit has quickly become the next big indie act to watch out for in the Pacific Northwest.

"Peach Pit display a knack for distilling ennui, angst, and disappointment into wistful, melodic indie pop" ~The Georgia Straight

“A delectably smooth brand of indie pop complete with hushed vocals and Steely Dan-indebted guitar runs.” ~Exclaim!
Sun Seeker - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Sun Seeker
Sun Seeker has drawn applause for their unhurried breed of Cosmic American Music and with BIDDEFORD (Third Man Records), their long awaited debut EP, the Nashville-based band more than affirm their promise. The EP – which follows Sun Seeker’s widely acclaimed Third Man debut single, 2016’s “Georgia Dust” b/w “No One Knows” (TMR322) – sees Alex Benick (guitar, vocals), Asher Horton (bass guitar, vocals), and Ben Parks (drums, vocals) exploring nostalgia, melancholy, and emotional turmoil via laidback psychedelia pollinated with tight harmonies, classic folk songcraft, and country rock spirit, an ageless approach that is simultaneously archetypal and now utterly their own. Songs like “With Nothing (But Our Last Words)” and the yearning “Won’t Keep Me Up At Night” meld Benick’s candid lyricism and stark melodies with creative arrangement and production technique, fashioning a sonic world to match their interior emotional scope.

The “bunch of musical friends” at the core of Sun Seeker have been collaborating in some sense since eighth grade. The trio formed a loose collective of combos, playing together in each other’s bands, with Sun Seeker officially convening in January 2013. The band became fast favorites on the Nashville scene, earning word of mouth and a fervent fan following via an electric live presence and a striking collection of songs. Sun Seeker will celebrate BIDDEFORD with intense national touring, not dissimilar to the approach they took in building a hometown following. The band plan to use the time between runs to record their now eagerly anticipated debut album, still determined to keep venturing forward, developing and expanding the distinctive parameters of their own intrepid sound and vision.
Ponytails - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Ponytails
Ponytails came to fruition in March 2016, spawned from best friends Harvey Merrit (vocals, bass) and Travis Goeres (lead guitar) love of pizza and the theme music of Sylvester Stallone movies. Liam Less (bass, rhythm guitar, vocals) and Simon Furminger (drums, vocals) joined in late March and in September 2016 started working on their self titled EP.

Recorded at Little Red Sounds with Felix Fung And recorded over the course of three long days really pushed the band and producer to their fullest. The band released their first single "Pieces" on October 1st 2016 followed by a full release of the EP on November 1st.

The anticipation of their EP was stregthened by word of mouth from their electric live performances, off stage antics and DIY social media presence. They have been described as, "mutated brew of elegantly structured, psychadelically-tinged pop and rock with a decidedly retro vibe."

Drummer Simon Furminger left the band late September 2017, to be joined by Graham Serl, a powerful addition to round out the bands sunburnt surf sound.

They have shared the stage with the likes of, La Luz, Widowspeak, Peach Pit, And Leisure Club. Ponytails will be releasing a series of EP's and music videos starting in July and will release a full length LP in the spring of 2018.
