Cass McCombs - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Cass McCombs
Cass McCombs is an American musician who has released seven albums and one EP since 2002.

During the 1990’s, McCombs played in countless bands at various DIY spaces in the Bay Area and the Pacific Northwest until he relocated to New York. In 2002, he released his debut, Not The Way EP, on independent Baltimore label Monitor Records. On his first trip to Europe in 2003, he recorded a Peel Session for John Peel, who described McCombs’ music as “unobtrusively brilliant”. In 2003, McCombs released his first album, A, and that year toured with Baltimore’s The Oxes as his backing band. In 2004, he performed at the UK’s All Tomorrow’s Parties and in 2005 released his second album PREfection on Monitor Records in the US and 4AD in Europe. In 2005 he toured with Modest Mouse. In 2007, Dropping the Writ was released on Domino Records and McCombs toured with Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti. Domino Records would release his next four albums: Catacombs (2009), which was voted one of the “50 Top Albums on the Year” by Pitchfork; Wit’s End (2011); Humor Risk (2011), Big Wheel and Others (2013).

In 2012, McCombs toured with John Cale and performed at Occupy Sandy, a benefit for the storm’s victims. That same year, McCombs premiered his song, “Bradley Manning” on the Democracy Now News Hour.
Frank Fairfield - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Frank Fairfield
California-based fiddle, guitar, and banjo player, and ardent 78 collector Frank Fairfield has made his living as a musician, often found playing on the streets of Los Angeles. Handpicked by Fleet Foxes to open their U.S. tour last year, Frank released a 7" on Tompkins Square and recorded his self-titled debut album. His 7" won over tough critics and purists like Grammy winning producer Chris King (Charley Patton, People Take Warning box set), Phil Alexander (Mojo) and Greil Marcus, to name a few.
Residual Echoes - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Residual Echoes
"Southern California scuzz-rockers Residual Echoes – the work of one Adam Payne – kick up a seriously psychedelic racket on their self-titled debut release. ... Payne is buddies with current psych darlings Comets on Fire and Six Organs of Admittance, and it’s not difficult to tell why such groups would be enraptured by the Echoes’ cranked-up splatter. Even eternal wild man and underground rock god Julian Cope has fallen under the group’s spell. Last January, he posted a panting, 1600-word review of the LP on his site."
