This year’s line-up features headliners Boom Chick, Hymn for Her & Loves It! Screen Door Porch will also be performing.
BOOM CHICK (HEADLINERS)
Boom Chick is a big hit of surf-garage momentum and rock and roll from Brooklyn, NY. Consisting of Frank Hoier on guitar & vocals and Moselle Spiller on drums. Boom Chick's sound is a reflection of their ecstatic love for early American rock & roll, surf guitar and Delta blues. Boom Chick’s amplified "Honky Tonk Surf Rock" brings you back to the era when people spoke their mind, creating a sound that delivers on all those things rock n’ roll promised us so long ago. Several songs from their album Show Pony have been featured in skateboard videos for Thrasher Magazine and Element Skateboards.
HYMN FOR HER (MIDDLE BILL)
Lucy Tight & Wayne Waxing are "Hymn For Her", a band that hails from anywhere they can park their trailer. H4H live, tour and record in their 16 foot, 1961 Bambi Airstream (comes with dog and baby). Armed with 2 bullet mics, a three-stringed broom handle/cigar box, banjo, dobro, bass drum, hi-hat, and harp, this 'lil duo causes massive earthquakes wherever they play. H4H blend the styles of bluegrass, Americana, punk rock and old time into a sound that is completely unique.
LOVES IT! (OPENERS)
Loves It! is the duo of Jenny Parrot and Vaughn Walters inventive songwriting that travels between folk, country, indie pop and swing, each is a multi-instrumentalist and the live show features claw hammer banjo, ...guitars, mandolin, fiddle, and heart-felt inspired singing. With songs and musical ideas formed by their experiences traveling with other musicians (Shotgun Party, Leo Rondeau), these veterans of the road have come together to create a unique sound that is fun and modern!
SCREEN DOOR PORCH (after-party headliners)
Screen Door Porch is an Americana/Alt-Country/Folk-Blues/Rock quartet thrives with a no-boundaries approach to song craft, female/male vocal harmonies, and a range of instrumentation—acoustic & electric guitars, banjo, mandolin, kazoogle, harmonica, bass, and drums. The core singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist duo of South-to-West transplants—Seadar Rose and Aaron Davis—have once again covered the spectrum of lush roots-rock to stripped-down acoustic arrangements on Screen Door Porch’s sophomore gem, The Fate & The Fruit (2012).

6. How should I dress?
Layer for changing weather. Days can be warm and comfortable. It gets cold at night, so bring a sweater or coat if you're planning on staying out past 9 p.m. Long sleeves and pants can be helpful for warmth, and to keep the mosquitoes off. Thunderstorms can bring rain, so it is helpful to have a hat and something to protect you from getting wet in the event a rain squall moves through. We are high elevation, and you can sunburn within minutes – bring sunscreen, and your favorite insect repellant.
