NAT VAZER (10:00 PM)
Melbourne artist, Nat Vazer, is known for her heart-stopping lyrics that weave between confessional guitar-pop, indie rock and the folk tradition of storytelling through song. From the age of five, Vazer began learning classical piano but became fascinated with the world of bands and songwriters, having grown up in a household with her family’s 60s and 80s record collection. A self-taught guitarist, she stole her father’s guitar during highschool and started to learn Nirvana, The Strokes and Death Cab for Cutie based on internet guitar tabs. In true DIY fashion, she soon began writing songs in punk highschool bands, capturing early sounds on old PCs with built-in microphones and a pirated copy of Logic, Vazer’s debut album ‘Is This Offensive And Loud?’ (Perpetual Doom records, Brooklyn NY) was nominated for the 2020 Australian Music Prize and listed in several best-albums-of-the-year lists including NME Australia and The Music. Mixed by Ali Chant (Soccer Mommy, PJ Harvey) and produced by Robert Muinos, the album features hit singles ‘For A Moment’ and ‘Higher Places’ as featured on Rolling Stone Australia. With a new album on the horizon, Nat Vazer will be embarking on her first US tour in March 2023 playing at New Colossus Festival 2023 (New York), Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Jersey City and many more. US tour dates announced soon.

THE TISBURYS (9:00 PM)
The Tisburys are an Indie Rock / Power Pop band from Philadelphia, PA led by singer-songwriter Tyler Asay. The band has released three full-length albums, most recently 2022’s Exile On Main Street. Their music has received praise and radio play from NPR and 88.5 WXPN, where they played the XPoNential Music Festival. They have shared the stage with national acts (Gin Blossoms, Jenny Lewis, Wild Pink) and local Philadelphia heroes such as The War On Drugs, Baroness, and Ben Arnold. The band is gearing up for their first US tour and recording their fourth LP in 2023.

THE LUNAR YEAR (8:00 PM)
The Lunar Year is the art rock project of Philly based musician Katie Hackett. The band has released two full length albums (Herodias, 2017) (katie bird, 2020) and in September 2022 released single Mist of the Teal Mara in anticipation of their next record. Hackett scored a documentary short called The Greatest Poem that was an official selection of the London International Animation Festival, Viet Film Fest and MAM Festival. Her songs have been featured on Chris Gethard’s New Jersey is the World, MTV’s Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2. The band also received praise from WXPN and NPR for their single and live sessions. “Tromping the Duck” is an angsty ode to not giving a f***. – Jill Britton, NPR
