Other acts for the evening include disco-shoegazers Soundpool, avant-pop duo Sunglasses, and dance party starters Telephoned.

Information on artists:
** TOBACCO is the mastermind behind Pittsburgh psych-weirdos Black Moth Super Rainbow, but his focus is now set entirely on Maniac Meat, an album made of equal parts analog crunch, earthy psychedelia, fuzzed-up hip-hop, and outside pop. Not a hip-hop record, per se – just something that parties like one. Beck is the record’s lone guest, alternately sparring and coasting with Tobacco’s well-known arsenal of vintage synthesizers, noise boxes and voice modulators.
** SOUNDPOOL is the disco-shoegazer NYC ensemble that fuses ethereal vocals, spacey lush synths, a wall of guitars sounds with funky bass lines, disco beats and psychedelic visuals. Their latest record Mirrors In Your Eyes is a euphoric delight that was released on the Killer Pimp label (of A Place To Bury Strangers’ fame) and was applauded by the likes of Pitchfork, The Deli Mag, GBH, and Losing Today.
** SUNGLASSES is an avant-pop group from Savannah, GA made up of 8000 bam bam and Baby Seal. Their self-titled EP drops June 15th on Lefse Records. While still a new band, Sunglasses have already garnered the attention of Vice, Stereogum, Pitchfork, and The Fader. Check out their colorfully explosive music video for “Whiplash” here
** TELEPHONED is dance-pop duo from Brooklyn made up of DJ/producer Sammy Bananas (Fool’s Gold) and singer/party starter Maggie Horn (Good Peoples) that have earned early praise from the likes of Pitchfork, RCRD LBL, and YRB Magazine for their pseudo-covers and reworkings of orginal beats into hypnotic club tracks.
