Sleeping Lessons
Sleeping Lessons
Sleeping Lessons is the latest Seattle indie-rock band on the block made up of Charlie Deane, Paul Kowalczyk, Dan Moretti, and Terence Bonsey. The collective resume of Deane, Kowalczyk, Moretti, and Bonsey precedes them, having played in a variety of projects ranging from international b-boy sensation Don’t Talk To The Cops, Seattle surf staples The Echo Echo Echoes, and backing the indie-folk prodigy Sophia Duccini. While Bonsey was championing basslines to breakdancing competitions around the world; Deane, Moretti and Kowalczyk were busy sharing bills with artists such as Car Seat Headrest, Washed Out, Deep Sea Diver, Diet Cig, STRFKR and even Odesza . In less than a year since their debut on Seattle’s famed Big BLDG Bash Festival main stage, Sleeping Lessons have started to create some serious momentum for themselves across the world with their self-produced debut album Red Sprites.

Already the band has had support from influential radio stations worldwide such as Seattle’s KEXP, Boston’s WEMF, and RKC in Paris. Even rock and roll hall of fame DJ Marco Collins is a fan, calling Red Sprites “one of the best debut records I've heard come out of the NW in a long time!”

Things keep going from strength to strength for the young Seattle band, who returning from their second west coast tour have just been added to a slew of the Pacific Northwest’s most exclusive bills including Capitol Hill Block Party and Fisherman’s Village Music Festival. With 2 west coast tours under their belt and more on the horizon, the future looks bright for Sleeping Lessons.
Children
Tom Gil, Jeff Steiskal, Graham Walker, Trevor Wallace, and Mark Yates are CHILDREN; a quintet of strapping young lads from Los Angeles, California. Their sound has been described as being "Draped in silk and drowned in the Pacific" by a homeless man on Fairfax. Melodic and colorful, their songs gracefully walk the tightrope between unpredictability and sensibility. They have an EP entitled "Feel Time", and a full length entitled "Great River".
Dr Fadeaway
Dr Fadeaway
Conceived within a forest inside four walls, watered by stray drops of red wine, and warmed by the glow of a computer screen, Dr Fadeaway creates a space that is part dream pop, part lo-fi, with a hefty dose of synth-driven '80s film ballads.
Keith Sweaty & Lorna Dune
Portland-based Keith and Lorna will be DJing all night and transforming the end of the night into a house/ techno dance party!
The Lavender Scare
The Lavender Scare
The Lavender Scare is an ambitious indie rock band from Los Angeles, CA. Their sound is a unique blend of catchy melodies and dense arrangements inspired by multi-instrumental rock acts like Radiohead, Arcade Fire, and Wilco. Singer and songwriter James Delos Reyes leads the band crooning his way through brooding melodies with a touch of satire and playfulness. His vocal stylings draw from a foreboding temperament similar to the likes of Fiona Apple and Nick Cave with lyrics that borrow a raw humor akin to political cartoons. His experience of being gay and growing up in the Evangelical church is often reflected in the music. Songs like "Non-Denominational Heretic" and "Drag for a Queen" are characteristic of the lyrical playground that intertwines their melodies. At the same time, the Lavender Scare maintains a spirit that's infectious, engaging, and universal to indie rock fans everywhere. Even fundamentalists will secretly be tapping their toes while shaking their fists.
