Bo White's made strange music in several different bands: He's led the late noise rockers Calabi Yau and bolstered Afrobeat-happy Black Congo NC, supported posi-poppers Yardwork and anchored the vibes-and-jazz-guitar Duo Select. Andy The Doorbum
Andy the Doorbum's been writing and playing music since he was 14, and would you believe it? He's still doin it! He's released 5 splits, 3 EPs, and just released his 4th full length as a Double Vinyl LP! He intends to survive. Your Fuzzy Friends
No two ways about it, Your Fuzzy Friends is the hottest new-wave puppet band of the American indie scene. Their danceable electro-pop sounds and amusing antics will having you shaking your ass and laughing it off at the same time. Join hipster god Mono the Unicorn and all his plush pals in their riotous musical adventures! Accompanying them on tour is the maddeningly upbeat band manager Lee (the human of the entourage), booking this rag-tag band into highly inappropriate gigs...and into your heart. If you like being felt up by someone made of felt, Your Fuzzy Friends will touch you in ways that make you feel special! Uncomfortable…but special. Human Pippi Armstrong
Lurking in the shadows of Charlotte’s underground music scene is a sound so wonderfully dark and unique that it could only be described as...Pippi?! While the name may not initially convey a clear style, rest assured Human Pippi Armstrong’s music is an original and stylistic sound that leaves a strong impression. Human Pippi Armstrong is a “one-man force” created 11 years ago by Nathan Hemphill. Hemphill’s music is self-described as “generally danceable and melodic” created through the “powerful square-wavesound” of his Kawai K1m Midi Module. Hemphill also uses a Boss SP-303 sampler to loop tracks while he plays lead and sings. Hemphill describes his live shows as “Madness! I fear the floors willcollapse at times! I feed off my crowd, so if there happens to be a night where everyone’s tired, then I'm just extra angry at them and will make vulgar gestures at the men and women until I get them on board.” His lyrics, dark and cerebral, are often centered around death. His song “Homeplate of the Light” was written about the murder of James Jordan, the father of basketball legend Michael Jordan. “I find the morbid things in life the most real and impacting parts of it” says Hemphill. In his eleven years as performing as Human Pippi Armstrong, Hemphill has opened for such acts as, Odd Nosdam, Lightning Bolt, Thee MoreShallows, Baths, Future Islands among many others. He also toured with Tim and Eric Awesome Show's David Liebe Hart. The Luciferian Agenda
Robert Childers and friends battle the demons working to control your enlightened mind. Brandaddy Longlegs
Brandaddy Longlegs is a "get down and boogie" one-man-band from Charlotte, NC. His feet do the stompin', his hands do the pluckin', and his boca takes care of the talkin'. Grab a beer, grab a lady, turn it up to 11, and get down to this good old fashioned rock n' roll!
