The Bottom Dollars - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
The Bottom Dollars
These "serial heart stealers" [The Deli Magazine] produce an absolute wall of sound... Thunderous drums echoing behind a classic rock rhythm section with soaring, lush vocal harmonies. Take that picture and paint it with shades of The Clash's on-stage bravado, the vibe of The Band circa 'Rock of Ages' and the power of My Morning Jacket and well, you've almost got The Bottom Dollars.

Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, this proudly-loud five piece have quickly become a point of discussion for bloggers, tapers, as well as eager, sweaty concert-goers all across the North America, gaining accolades in NPR: All Songs Considered, KEXP, Daytrotter, Village Voice, Relix Magazine, ScoutMob, NME Magazine (UK & Europe), The Wild Honey Pie (Best of SXSW 2013) as well as many other notable publications.

The Bottom Dollars return this year with their debut LP “Meet Me In Cognito” (due February 2014) recorded with multi-platinum, Grammy Award winning engineer John Siket (Sonic Youth, Phish, Yo La Tengo, Dave Matthews Band) and their usual heavy touring regiment to bring their signature blend of neo-classic americana & rock n’ roll back into the expansive assemblage of their ever-growing fanbase.


"Professional Sonic Assassins." -

"The Bottom Dollars' music goes something like this...It's having a flask tucked, at all times, in the inside pocket of any coat that would ever be worn. It's keeping that flask healthily full with something that coats." - Sean Moeller, Daytrotter

"It doesn't get much better." - Lindsay Gilbert, No Pulp Music

“Pick any Bottom Dollars' tune and see if the first guitar riff doesn't make you want a bottle of whiskey and a barstool (the "let's make some trouble" kind, not the "let's drown our sorrows" kind).” - ScoutMob

"With heavy blues vocals and an old-west-appeal, The Bottom Dollars continue to feed on their growing buzz with energetic live shows and a constant presence in the New York music scene." - Devon Antonetti, The Deli Magazine
The Nuclears - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
The Nuclears
Fast cars, loud guitars, beer, video games, leather jackets, boredom, and good-old-fashioned rock shows. The Nuclears are modern rock n' roll sound, with a classic twist that channels The MC5, New York Dolls, The Velvet Underground, David Bowie, and Alice Cooper all at once. The Nuclears recently dropped the second single of a new release cycle, "Up All Nite", a follow-up to their April 2012 single/b-side, "Myrtle Ave At 4:00am"/"Don't Like It, Don't Get It, Don't Care", and their 2011 self-titled album.

"The Nuclears play exactly the kind of rock n roll that the CBGB's Festival had been missing all weekend. Band members bent over backwards to solo onstage, hair plastered to sweaty foreheads, pin-balling between packed throngs of fans that included glimpses of false eyelashes, fishnets, and glittery flapper dresses on both men and women.... And isn’t that the true spirit of CBGB?" - Consequence Of Sound

"Gutter rock numbers that do The Dictators confident, bad-ass, braggadocios bunch." - Broken Beard
