The Extraordinaires (Philly)
The Extraordinaires are an amazing five piece band that has toured with Man Man, Gogol Bordello, and Jonny Corndawg.
They've been featured on NPR, recorded a session for Daytrotter, and were chosen to play the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona, Spain. Their music is a combination of high energy songs built around characters studies, at once funny, serious, sad, and totally infectious.
As a magazine said, "a band that demands to be seen live, or else"
Lee Miles and the Illegitimate Sons of One Brother William Branham (Fort Wayne)
Lee Miles is a Fort Wayne songwriter who has previously been in the bands Dark Blonde Water and lo.automatic. His music brings to mind Dylan, Bonnie Prince Billy, and Songs:Ohia while wholly going off into his own territory. About his records others have said, "a luminous singer/songwriter album, full of heart, brains, passion, love and hate. Miles' offering is masterful. It's also gutsy. And beautiful. And about 997 other things..."
He will be backed by a full band.
