Bands performing schedule:


• 12 PM - EmiSunshine - T-shirts and CDS available now at the store.

It’s impossible to explain the exceptional talents of EmiSunshine, an 11-year-old East Tennessee prodigy who has captured the nation’s attention as a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.  Steeped in Appalachian music, she is a true vocal stylist, one who instinctively knows how to interpret the nuances of a song with her impressive range, even though she has yet to gain the life experience and empathy seemingly necessary to fully comprehend the words she sings. Despite a given name that reflects optimism, she is drawn to darker themes of pain, anguish and even murder, like that of The Louvin Brothers, whom she loves.


• 1 PM - Appalachian Surf Team

Members: Guitar / Sean Sparbanie- Guitar / Drew Fulton- Bass / Rodney Sheehan- Drums / Austin Polley
Genre: Surf-Rock
Hometown: Knoxville, TN


• 2 PM - Roomsounds

There’s a reason legions of young rock fans fall in love with their parents’ records. It’s the same reason so many radio stations still play classic rock: Great music never gets old. And it’s what prompted singer and guitarist Ryan Michael to reinvent his sound, leaving behind his teenage past in a Warped Tour band signed to a Warner Bros. subsidiary and relocating from Connecticut to Texas.

“We wanted to immerse ourselves in the South,” explains Michael. “To be around the best blues and country players. It all just seemed so much more authentic than the shit going on around me.”

The entire band embraced those influences — Beatles, Stones, Petty, Big Star, Faces and Oasis to new a few. Along with guitarist/vocalist Sam Janik, bassist/vocalist Red Coker and drummer Dan Malone, The Roomsounds make their own sound, initially from a run down industrial space with no heating, cooling or plumbing. They’re now living in a proper house in East Dallas, but not much else has changed. There’s always someone over– beautiful women, musicians and what the band calls ‘permanent guests,” all decked out with long hair and bell-bottoms. They’ve created their own Exile in Dallas and the music shows it.


• 3 PM - Mountains Like Wax

Murfreesboro, TN based band Mountains Like Wax is satisfying hungry fans one show at a time with their relentlessly poignant and exuberant Southern post-rock. Having played over fifty plus shows in the past year and counting without a sound recording, they are proving to be a band to watch as they charge to the forefront of Middle Tennessee’s burgeoning indie rock scene. Mitchell Taylor (vocals, guitar), Samuel Katz (guitar), and Preston Vaughn (drums) are now ready to commit their sound to tape and make a rallying cry for their generation as they wrap arms around those begging to know will the future render glory, will it be pliable, or will it melt and fade?


• 4 PM - La Basura Del Diablo

Members: *Whitey Mack - Vocals *Chris Howler - Bass *G.W. Swift - Guitar *Mick Dagger - Drums *Carlos Satana - Guitar *Brad Luttrell - Manager
Genre: Horror Rock & Roll
Hometown: Old Grey Cemetery, Knoxville, TN


• 5 PM - Automatic Stops

Alex Hensley - Guitar/Vocals
Benton Davis - Bass
Zack Garner - Drums
We are a three person band (bass, guitar, drums) in East Tennessee that play alternative, indie, and punk
