Yesferatu - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Yesferatu is sequential circuits, slinky bass lines and a southern drawl. Formed in Washington D.C. in early 2017 by veterans of musical communities as widespread as Minneapolis, New York, Alabama, DC and later, Medellin, the band owes as much to Giorgio Moroder, Chic and David Byrne as it does to Tom Waits, Hunter S. Thompson and American superhero comics. Their live show embodies the blurry buzz of a melodic fever dream, an insistent melange of ear worm synth hooks, crackling rhythmic dynamics and punch-drunk vocal hollers. It's as vibrant a thing that DC's musical kaleidoscope has to offer.
Weston Smith - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
Weston Smith is a DC-based Synth Pop artist creating music from the heart. Using the forest as his first album’s inspiration, his new album, ‘Deep Slumber’, uses a Dream World to convey his message of mental illness, love, and hope for a brighter future. Let his tune guide you through the dark.
Mr. Daywalker - (Set time: 8:00 PM)

Donovan Edmund Duvall aka Mr. Daywalker, born June 5, 1994, is a DC area based producer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and art director. His music is a blend of jazz, hip-hop, soul, indie, with added electronic elements. Inspired by J Dilla, John Coltrane, Fleet Foxes, Bill Withers, Flamenco and his Cuban roots. Mr. Daywalker carries the tradition of his relatives who toured around the world playing Cuban jazz in the forties and fifties, sharing the stage with icons such as Dizzie Gillespie and Miguelito Valdés . Mr. Daywalker
joined his school’s orchestra at the age of nine playing percussion. During high school, at Sidwell Friends in DC, he played in the jazz ensemble, while at home he began creating and producing house music. In college as a jazz percussion and performance major, he played with a jazz/hiphop fusion group, The Blue Roots Experiment, which sparked his interest in hiphop. This started his transition from house music to making beats. Making beats was the first step for Mr. Daywalker, and soon he was inspired to transition from beats to recording live instrumentation. He found that recording live instruments captured a more genuine sound, missing from just making beats. This discovery spurred Mr. Daywalker to teach himself piano, bass, guitar, and mandolin. Mr. Daywalker’s mission is to generate empathy and to create spaces that are beyond fear through music. He seeks to capture the human experience through his perception of reality. Mr. Daywalker has performed on stages in NC, DC, NY, VA, WV, and OH including The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, Serendipity Music Festival, and The Black Cat, and
he has shared bills with Baauer, Beau Young Prince, DJ Inferno, Jordan Clark, and Space Captain. Mr. Daywalker is fresh off releasing his debut EP “Warmth” and busy working on his next project.
