Performers: 
 
Delicate Steve, afro-pop rock band from New Jersey (featured on NPR, Pitchfork, Stereogum, and CMJ) 
Delicate Steve imposes strange limitations on its music: It's largely wordless, with a primary "voice" built around Steve Marion's sinewy, high-pitched slide-guitar leads. Polyrhythms give the band's songs a skittish, jumpy quality — they often threaten to barrel ahead of themselves. But within those restrictions, or perhaps because of them, Delicate Steve's music maintains the capacity to surprise. Its two albums are guitar showcases that don't shred, dance records that don't adhere to familiar beats and classic-rock throwbacks that fan out into world music, prog, reggae, surf-rock and more, with the propulsive jitteriness of Ratatat and the sideways oddness of Dirty Projectors. - NPR
 
Opening:
Hokes, electronic producer and soundscape artist from New Jersey 
 —with special guests from members of the UMass Percussion Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, and Orchestra, performing his conceptual album, Head Games, with live visuals.
The 21-year-old New Jersey native aims to paint not only an auditory trip, but visual imagery conjured by utilizing a seemingly erratic and spontaneous yet meaningful song structure. His recent EP Head Games embodies a philosophical approach and passion in composing each piece. - Earmilk
