ASTR - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
ASTR
ASTR is a duo that lives, works and writes music in New York City. After meeting three years ago in a Manhattan yoga class, they discovered they shared a musical and artistic sensibility informed by cinema noire, Miami Vice and urban dreamscapes. ASTR was soon born.

Zoe is a New York native and former major label refuge. After a hiatus from music to explore the world via spirituality she met Adam, a recovering vinyl addict with a penchant for 60's / 70's cinema scores, Disco, and the fingers for anything with keys (vintage synths, guitar and bass).
The Black & The White - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The Black & The White
The black and the white began when Julio Tavarez started creating music with long time friend and producer Justin Kaupp. "My vision has always been clear to me. It was just time to record the music I was always meant to record. Justin helped bring those ideas to life." said Tavarez. He goes on, saying "I love music that physically moves me." The black and the white represents a new chapter in Tavarez's music, featuring lush sonic landscapes and chaotic, bombastic exploratory electro-production, mixed with the uniquely passionate vocals that only Tavarez can deliver.

"People really like to talk negatively about the current state of music. Especially the electronic element. The truth is, I'm inspired by the old and the new all at the same time. Artists like Fela Kuti, CAN, Pink Floyd, Black Flag and D'Angelo have affected my life just as much as the work of Little Dragon, Kanye West and Daft Punk.. It's all there." said Tavarez.

Longtime drummer Cliff Sarcona and Julio Tavarez have always shared what moves them. While they love writing music, both Sarcona and Tavarez are at their best when performing. "Performing live is where we thrive in the moment. This project is going to elevate our live show in ways Cliff and I have always wanted." said Tavarez. "Expect to be uplifted and leave feeling inspired" adds Sarcona.

The black and the white have plenty of music already recorded, and continue to write almost daily. "This journey will include lots of music along the way" Julio said, "and this makes us very happy."
