Innasci: Official moe. Afterparty



Hailing from the vibrant city of Missoula, Montana, Innasci has made it their mission to bring their brand of tasty grooves to the masses. Consisting of Kyle Boone on bass guitar and vocals, KW Lloyd on guitar, and Jake Smith on percussion, the group has cut their teeth individually playing in various bands around Missoula and the region before finding each other in a music filled haze.

With an emphasis on energetic compositions, pocket grooves, and musical exploration, Innasci brings the party to the dance floor and leaves audiences begging for more.

Sunday, October 14th
Pigeons Playing Ping Pong



“We pour every ounce of ourselves into every note when we perform live,” says Pigeons Playing Ping Pong singer/guitarist Greg Ormont. “When we’re recording in the studio, we try to maintain that euphoria while finding a way to pack it into a tight, focused vessel. Each song becomes like a spring-loaded can of worms: there’s all this energy boxed up in a neat little package, and then when you come see us live, the cap comes off and the contents fly out in every direction like fireworks.”

It’s a whimsically apt metaphor for Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, a band whose very existence is rooted in the unyielding quest for joy and positive energy. Blending infectious funk grooves, psychedelic jams, and experimental electronics, the Baltimore four-piece’s new album, ‘Pizazz,’ is a buoyant, blissful reminder of just how much fun music can be. Eschewing the traditional funk band lineup that typically includes keyboards, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong constructs effervescent soundscapes with just two guitars, bass, and drums, crafting their music with a sophisticated ear for both open space and dense layering.

Monday, October 15th



Despite being a duo, Patrick and I have never played a show together as a two piece. For our Solo In Stereo Tour, we’ve decided to amend that. We have reimagined our songs for a more intimate setting, closer to the way they are written and demoed.

The shows won’t be acoustic, but they will be paired down. We’ve recorded a live performance of My Emotions Are Blinding to give you an example of our vision: a personal, song-forward show. Join us, won’t you?

Skizzy Mars



Skizzy Mars earned instant buzz with his first single, 2011’s “Douchebag,” and has since made his bones as one of contemporary rap’s most eclectic new stars. The Harlem-based MC — known to his family as Myles Mills — followed “Douchebag” with the powerful “Profound” as well as a pair of much-talked-about mixtapes and increasingly popular live appearances as both headliner and support to such stars as G-Eazy, Logic, and fellow Atlantic artists B.o.B and Ty Dolla $ign.

Skizzy has also received a remarkable range of press coverage, with features in such outlets as The Fader, NYLON, HipHopDX, Earmilk, Pigeons & Planes, and HotNewHipHip, as well as an appearance on the premiere installment of XXL’s “Ante Up” podcast.

Tech N9ne



The independent underground would not be what it is today without pioneers like Strange Music cofounder Tech N9ne. Tech’s unparalleled tour schedule and signature rapid-fire “chopper” style combined with the business acumen of Strange Music CEO Travis O’Guin have molded Strange Music into the number one independent hip-hop label in the world.

In less than two decades, Tech himself has earned three gold records, sold over two million albums, and made multiple appearances on Forbes’s “Hip-Hop Cash Kings” list. Tech’s multi-faceted skillset has not gone unrecognized by artists of all genres, exemplified by collaborations with such diverse artists as The Doors, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Eminem, and Boyz II Men, to name just a few. Everyone from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to Elton John has been spotted bumping Tech N9ne records, a testament to constant reinvention and inarguable excellence that has become standard of Tech’s work.
