The Lonely Biscuits - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The Lonely Biscuits


The Lonely Biscuits, formerly known as Gravy and the Biscuits have been together since September of 2011. Founding members Grady Wenrich and Sam Gidley were random roommates at Belmont University, in Nashville, where they started jamming and making music out of their dorm room. John Paterini, current lead singer of the band came into the picture in September after hearing some of their tunes from his dorm room across the hall. Then, two months later, Nick Byrd joined the band as an official biscuit playing bass guitar. Blending soul, funk, and pop with rap; The Lonely Biscuits have created a unique sound that has appealed to a wide array of people.

The Lonely Biscuits have toured the country playing at universities, festivals, and clubs, gaining dedicated fans everywhere they go. The band was recently named mtvU's first ever "College Artist of The Year", and traveled to Austin, TX, to perform at the MTV Woodies Festival at SXSW.
The band has independently released three EPs. Their latest EP "A Girl Named Destiny", charted on Billboard's Regional Heatseekers Chart, and gained national coverage from numerous notable music blogs and magazines.

The Lonely Biscuits continue to write, record, and perform new music that can relate with anyone, and they will continue to share it with as many people as possible.
Makeup Girl - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Makeup Girl
Described by the Washington Post as "throwback indie rock," Makeup Girl is a music lover's dream come true. From their humble beginnings as a rock duo started by Brody Steck and Caleb Schiebel, the band has expanded and matured into something much greater - something new.

Joined by multi-instrumentalist Johnny Leander, and bassist Avery Steck, the band is now at full power.

Drawing from the likes of Stevie Wonder, the Strokes, Funkadelic, and the Arctic Monkeys Makeup Girl’s sound can be described as an explosive combination of pop rock and other genres including jazz, R&B, latin, and funk. Drummer Caleb Schiebel tirelessly pushes his set to the height of its capabilities, pumping out tight rhythms that allow guitar lines and melodies to run wild. Audiences should expect an engaging live show, ranging from energizing rock songs to dreamy jazz inspired numbers. Makeup Girl songs are filled with surprises as the band flows from groove to groove, seamlessly switching tempo and time signatures as the songs progress.

In September 2017, the band released their second EP, titled Something New. The EP is made up of five songs that cover a wide range of sounds and styles. DC-based music blog Hometown Sounds featured the single Think of You, calling the band its “best find of the summer.” Since its release, Makeup Girl has been hard at work playing shows in the DMV area and writing new songs for future releases.
