8PM - BANDS & DANCING
Get down and dance with local acts: Bell's Roar, _1134, and Oobleck.
Sean Desiree is the multi-instrumentalist and vocalist behind the solo music project, Bell's Roar. The music pays tribute to raw blues standards and builds with layered guitar effects, lusty beats, and crisp vocal stylings. The source of the name stems from feminist writer, bell hooks.
The electroacoustic mathematic post-punk noise-rock of local artist and activist Abraham Hmiel.
Oobleck is a five piece funk based instrumental horn band hailing from the Capital Region of New York. And when we say funk, we actually mean funked-out-afro-grunge-rock-alt-dub-whatever. It’s a melee of horns, super heavy drums and bass and your favorite type of chunky guitar riffing that leaves your ass shaking and your face grinning.
