The Lovely Few"The Lovely Few is a Columbia based electronic-folk-pop trio. Frontman Mike Mewborne began the project in 2005. The band joined Charleston-based label Hearts and Plugs in 2012 and released The Geminids in April 2014. Pairing acoustic and electronic elements, epic allusions and tender vocals, The Lovely Few seeks to create approachable yet cerebral songs on humanity, divinity, and everything in between."
"The Lovely Few produce incredibly lush, electro-pop music. It’s the foundation for songs that seem to waft through time and space." - Otis Taylor, The State

SATURDAY, JULY 26
Dr Roundhouse, My Big Tomorrow, Tom Hall & The Plowboys, Cigar Box Opera
Dr Roundhouse"Dr Roundhouse started as an acoustic duo, DNR, that rocked the Columbia music scene. They rocked it hard. Frontmen, Jon and Russell, perfected their original compositions in this early carnation of the band. The duo added Nate Poston to the mix, bringing what is sometimes referred to as the heat. The bass guitar addition led the group to Nick McGill. Despite lacking in the height department, the band felt that he may be the drummer for them. While barely visible to the eye, his presence is more than audible. The group now cobbles shoes and makes custard pies. Also they rock. They rock hard."

Tom Hall & The PlowboysTom Hall & The Plowboys
"The Plowboys like to cook, and stand, and pick. Hopped up moonshiners chasing wild pigs down a mountain."
"If William Shakespeare had been raised in a hillbilly trailer park and wrote operas, he might have dipped his quill-pen into the pastoral funk of the Carolinas and come up with: The Sharecropper's Daughter. The latest opus is Plowboys and Indians: Visions of Black Elk, a country rock opera inspired by Lakota medicine man Black Elk. Call us outlaw indian country."

SATURDAY, AUGUST 2
Grüzer, Space Coke, Poontanglers
Gruzer"GRÜZER was formed in December of 2013 by six fellas very familiar in the heavy scene around Columbia and the Carolinas. Hailing from such local/regional bands as Deathvalley Driver, Diavolo, Carolyn, Shaokahn and Mean Wiener/Evil Empire just to name a few, these guys are no strangers to the game. GRÜZER intends on drawing from our collective experience and making the best music that the six of us can possibly make. We play what we want, when we want, and have zero concern with fitting into a certain label, genre or sub-genre. Just know that when you see or hear GRÜZER, you will be getting one of the best, heaviest bands in the Southeast!
