Voltheque - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Voltheque
After a brief stint rehearsing as an 80s cover band, former members of Philadelphia bands TV Sound, Action Reaction and Silk Stockade have joined forces in a collective musical super-endeavor: Voltheque. Merging classic gothic rock influences such as Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Cult with Futurist and New Romantic styles of Depeche Mode and Visage, delightfully centered around a Duran Duran-esque groove, this band has all the elements of post-punk revival covered, along with plenty of originality to propel them into the modern age. In a live context, Voltheque conjures a unique and energetic performance like you’ve never seen, showcasing their pulsating rhythms, driving guitars, and ambient soundscapes to create a sound unique to the current Philadelphia music scene. Stay tuned for their upcoming single, Unearthed, which is currently in production at Philly Sound Studios.
Skeleton Lipstick - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Skeleton Lipstick

The Touch - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
The Touch
We are a Nashville, TN based Dark Synth Pop ensemble. Our sound came about when vocalist Billy Blackman put his head together with Matt Ray and his analogue synthesizers. What came about was a collective of soundscapes that fit a dark setting, while still maintaining elements of dance, pop, and progressive music. When paired with the articulate push of Trey Blackman's bass and the bombastic drumming of Matt McPeak, The Touch was born. Each track, theme, and lyric presented by The Touch is an original idea fabricated by the marriage of our minds. Feel the music just as much as you hear it.

This is The Touch.
