|SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13|
|Death of Paris, Muscle Memory, Cairo Fire, Katlyn Redfern|
|“If success is the result of hard work and raw talent, then it’s certainly in the cards for Death Of Paris. Few bands in this town work as hard, touring for months on end up and down the East Coast. And even fewer bands write the kind of pitch-perfect electro-pop tunes Death of Paris does, tunes that arc ever upward with indefatigable energy, buoyed by Jayna Doyle’s impressive pipes. It’s mystifying that more bands don’t aim for the kind of pure pop-rock grandeur Death of Paris does, if only because the quintet makes looking and sounding so good seem so easy.” - Patrick Wall, Free Times|

|"The sound of Cairo Fire is the summation of White’s smoky soaring power vocal, M. Pepe’s effortless pop/rock chord progression, J.Pepe’s chunky melodic bass lines and P. Gerasia’s aggressive but empowering drums all fused with strong hints of electronica. Each of these can be heard in ‘Bold & Beautiful’ the band’s first single release and collective ‘next step’."|

|Pharaohs In Space|
"One of Columbia's most promising new bands. This rootsy Americana trio takes a break from the studio to share their progress with you. Bring your dancing shoes, come out, and shake it. It's not so clear what their promising but you will have a good time."

|"The Mississippi Kites, an Americana band from Columbia, SC. were picked as one of the top 13 acts to watch in 2013 by Kevin Oliver. This groove based band is deeply steeped in early rock and roll, blues and archetypal country. Guitarist and lead singer Stevie Patt is a veteran of the NYC and Columbia blues and rock scenes, and rhythm section Matt Bridges (drums) and Kevin Pettit (bass) have been playing throughout SC and Georgia since the late 1980’s. Their debut, three song ep was released in September and is available as a free download on Reverbnation."|

|"Inspired and influenced by progressive bluegrass, alt-country, The Grateful Dead, and upbeat Americana artists such as Shovels and Rope, The Great Watuzzi is a group of long-time friends who have finally united to create their own sound, aptly referred to as “dirty rag”, and they can’t wait to share their music with you. You’ll hear mostly original tunes sprinkled with some familiar favorites from the strings of guitar, mandolin, and bass and a trio of vocals showcased by those of Misti Thurber."|
Brian Fitch - mandolin, vocals
Misti Thurber - guitar, vocals
Aaron Palmer - acoustic bass guitar, vocals
"We are a high energy, rock and roll band who plays blues rock, classic rock, country rock, and rock 'n' soul. specifically late '60s/early '70s style classic rock including British blues rock and Woodstock era music. We love to jam and improvise and to perform our takes on awesome old songs we like, as well as the raw, powerful, vintage sounding original material we come up with."
