The Wldlfe - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
The Wldlfe
THE WLDLFE, from Indianapolis, IN, is an indie pop band for fans of acts such as Jon Bellion, The 1975, and Fickle Friends. The band is comprised of Frontman Jansen Hogan, guitarist Jason Boucouras, drummer Geoff Jones, bass player Jack Crane, and multi-instrumentalist Carson Hogan. THE WLDLFE produces cinematic pop using maximalistic production and an honest simplicity to their lyrics.

The band found their beginning in 2016 with their debut EP “New”. “New” was a grassroots success receiving positive reviews from indie music publications, receiving airplay on over 90 college stations, being featured in the MTV Spotlight Spotify Playlist and even receiving tweets from Hollywood A-Listers Abigail Breslin and Chloe Grace Moretz.

Their sophomore EP “ILY”, continued the forward momentum seeing the band featured in Local Wolves Magazine, featured in Spotify’s Indie-Pop and AP playlists, and opening for the popular indie band COIN.

Now with the release of “I Don’t Mind”, the first single off their upcoming full-length album, the band has marked a new maturity of sound with a fresh visual aesthetic to match it. “I Don’t Mind” is the first of several singles the band will release this year, all leading up to the group’s first full length release slated for the Fall 2018.
Sub-Radio - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
Washington, DC’s Sub-Radio makes catchy, danceable indie pop that’s always expanding its boundaries. The sextet’s high-energy live performances and variety of outstanding vocalists have put them on the map up and down the East Coast. The band’s clean guitars, dancefloor rhythms, and powerful vocals have garnered comparisons to established indie pop acts like WALK THE MOON and MisterWives. Multiple songs have been recognized in national songwriting competitions, and Sub-Radio has gigged heavily across the region, playing at events such as Capital PRIDE, LAUNCH Music Conference & Festival, Celebrate Fairfax and Firefly Music Festival 2017. Following the success of their 2016 debut Same Train//Different Station, the band embarked on a series of monthly singles from April to September 2017. Their most recent EP Headfirst tackles the 21st-century struggle to define relationships and find a community from the offbeat perspective they’ve cultivated in their 10+ years of writing together.
Marielle Kraft - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Marielle Kraft is a singer/songwriter originally from Rhode Island, and currently based outside of Washington D.C. in Maryland. Self-taught, she began playing guitar at 16 and writing songs soon after. Her songs take shape as honest stories through comfortable arrangements, following suit to artists like Shawn Mendes, Ben Rector, and Taylor Swift. Oftentimes these stories are ones that we all find a piece of ourselves in, yet are written in a way simply unique to Marielle's artistry.

Over the past few years, Marielle has released two original EPs on iTunes and Spotify, as well as a brand new single, and she regularly plays covers and originals at venues across the mid-atlantic. Her first EP, Today Tomorrow Someday (2014) navigates the search for new purpose, while still remembering your roots. Her second EP, The Gibraltar Sessions (2016), features a stripped down delivery of 5 new original songs that seamlessly match clever lyrics of love, longing, and identity with chord progressions that will ring in your head for days afterward.

Her latest release, a single called "How Far You Feel," seeks to understand physical vs. emotional distance in a relationship.
