Cutso (As a member of world-renown DJ/producer outfit The Bangerz (formerly Fingerbangerz), Cutso always brings his eclectic taste in music to the mix. His influences derive from all things dope, ill, and sometimes slammin'. He sports a Violator Tatoo on his arm, so be prepared to dance hard to a set spun by a true fan!

NRVS LVRS (pronounced “Nervous Lovers”) is the dreamy darkwave project of husband & wife duo Andrew Gomez and Bevin Fernandez. While citing acts like Massive Attack, Can, and Kate Bush as influences, their music flirts with caustic electro-pop elements similar to that of The Knife, Bat for Lashes, or Crystal Castles. The dulcet tones of Fernandez’ soaring vocals complimented by Gomez’ low crooning glide over layers of ominous synths, driving guitar, and precise percussion to create compelling electronic soundscapes.
San Francisco natives Gomez and Fernandez —recording as NRVS LVRS since 2014— can be found offstage crate digging at Amoeba and supporting the Bay Area art scene. The pair’s 2015 debut LP on Breakup Records The Golden West was praised by SF Weekly as “crepuscular and opaque, with a grimy layer to it that thinly disguises the vein of pop running through the song[s].” NRVS LVRS has since opened for acts like Jagwar Ma and Telekinesis and received glowing reviews from PopMatters and Noisey. They spent the summer of 2016 recording with Larry Crane at Jackpot! Studio in Portland, released their sophomore album Electric Dread on June 30th, 2017, and are working on releasing new music recorded in Los Angeles with producer Eric Palmquist (WAVVES, FMLYBND) at Palmquist Studios. "Landing somewhere between Tears for Fears and My Bloody Valentine, NRVS LVRS have taken the particular days when your responsibility-free teenage years begin to creep into existential crisis and turned them into magic." --- Noisey

Containher - ContainHer weaves transcendental sci-fi dreams into indy electro pop that scintillates with warmth and emotion likened Depeche Mode riding the luck dragon from the Never Ending Story while being serenaded by Sade under an Abba sun. She brings a live band of space misfits that will enchant and get you dancing!
