BAD BAD HATS
Main Stage | 8:00pm-9:00pm
INDIE ROCK / MINNEAPOLIS
Song you should know: "Nothing Gets Me High"

Coming hot off their release of “Lightning Round” last August, Bad Bad Hats has spent the last year touring across the country with performances including Rock The Garden and opening for indie icons, Death Cab for Cutie. They have been featured in publications such as Rolling Stone Magazine, Pitchfork, The New Yorker and Paste. The band has previously played Ed’s No Name Bar and Mid West Music Fest.
Main Stage | 6:30pm-7:30pm
POP / MINNEAPOLIS
Song you should know: "The Thrill"
Called “Most Ready to Pop” by the Star Tribune, Yam Haus recently played Basilica Block Party. Yam Haus, is challenging the indie dominated scene of the Twin Cities. Their debut album, “Stargazer,” lands with the energy of WALK THE MOON, the charisma of Coldplay, and the emotion of Ed Sheeran. “Infectious energy, clever songwriting, and catchy melodies... these guys could be the Midwest’s better version of Maroon 5.” - GO 96.3
ISLAND CITY | 7:00pm-8:00pm
INDIE GAL PAL / MINNEAPOLIS
Song you should know: "Baby It's Cold Outside" (Yes, that one)
A couple years after going viral for re-writing “Baby It’s Cold Outside” in 2017, Lydia Liza got sober. And then she got writing. Not a lot of artists can wear the “teenage musical prodigy” hat and go on to find success as an adult. Lydia Liza echoes Nick Drake, Jeff Buckley and Laura Marling with ease. Add a sprinkle of nostalgic pop-punk, and Liza creates a tasteful, familiar soundscape.
Lydia Liza has been featured on Vanity Fair, New York Times, People Magazine, CNN, Bustle, Pitchfork, Billboard, CBC, NPR, BBC, the NY Post; she boasts over 6 million plays on Spotify.
She has shared stages directly with The Goo Goo Dolls, Jake Bugg, Atmosphere, Dessa, Dave Simonett of Trampled By Turtles, Jeremy Messersmith, and many others.
NO NAME BAR | 10:00pm-10:45pm
ROCK / MINNEAPOLIS
Song you should know: "Minnesota Girls"
Living a double life as both a knee-buckling indie rock band as well as a stomp-your-foot-through-the-floor blues band, The Shackletons have been generating buzz throughout the Twin Cities and Midwest Region. The band recently filled
the No Name Bar for Mid West Music Fest 2019.
"Imagine Conor Oberst with a John Belushi attitude, fronting the Hold Steady."- Jay Gabler (89.3 The Current)
