Vesperteen - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
After the success of his debut self-titled EP, Colin Rigsby, A.K.A. Vesperteen, took the world by storm with a non-stop schedule of touring across the map. His travels connected him with his passionate fanbase, often referred to as “The Vesperteam”, who will line up down the block to watch the alt-pop Artist perform his electrifying stage-show. Rigsby, who performs standing up at a glowing drum-kit while singing, has been performing as Vesperteen since 2015 when he launched the solo project following his term as the full-time drummer in House Of Heroes.

In 2018, three years after the release of the ‘Vesperteen EP’, Colin Rigsby returned to the studio to create his sophomore record ‘The Hype Is Dead’. Inspired by his desire to create music that is will meaningfully connect with people in a lasting and timeless way rather than just being a weekly trend or buzz.

With only two releases, Vesperteen has already garnered over 3 million streams on Spotify and 50,000 highly engaged fans across social media platforms, all as an independent artist.
Lightmare - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
Lightmare is a six-piece soul-punk arrangement out of Washington, D.C making songs about love, death, and revolution, in any order and definitely overlapping. Over the past year, they have quickly moved from playing small bars and house shows to some of the mid-Atlantic's top club venues, all while independently recording and releasing their debut album "Dream Glitch." Smooth and sharp, warm and galvanizing, punchy, political, and personal, their set is guaranteed to get your body moving and feelings flowing. Featuring Shady Rose (they/them) on lead vocals, Vitamin Dee (she/her) on keys, Matty K (he/him) on sax, Beck (he/him) on guitar, Josette (she/her) on drums, and Yung Mike (he/him) on bass.
MyKey - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Twenty one-year-old Mikey Ambrosino (MyKey) is a solo singer-songwriter from Rockville, Maryland. He has spent the last two years crafting his debut album, Faces, which he released in August of 2017. All vocals and instrumentation on Faces are done and recorded by MyKey (with featured female vocals by Motya Gershunskiy). He also studio engineered his project, learning from his studio mentor and boss of 6 years, Tom Mindte of Patuxent Music. While working under Tom Mindte, MyKey was predominantly exposed to and helped record Bluegrass and Old-Time music, from which he began to draw inspiration, and eventually combined these genres with his own interests in Rock and Pop. The blend of Pop/Rock and Folk/Bluegrass influences created a unique musical experience that is showcased in Faces. MyKey plans to release his second project in the summer of 2018.
