APRIL 21 (SUNDAY) LINEUP:

Geologist (Brian Weitz) is a member of the popular and acclaimed experimental pop band Animal Collective, where his duties consist of sound manipulation and sampling. Animal Collective's 2009 album "Merriweather Post Pavilion" was named best album of 2009 by Spin, Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly and others.

Superbody (Chattanooga): green-screen new-wave pop from Adult Swim star Robert Gregg McCurry II.

Meinschaft: a perpetual vortex of ritual energy and concentrated spectacle.
"Meinschaft is like a clown leading a circus of pain, shoveling toxic detritus into piles then slithering away and laughing from the sidelines at a game it refuses to play." - Chattanooga Pulse

GMO Sharia Law (Cleveland, TN): radical pop deconstructions taken to ecstatic extremes.

APRIL 22 (MONDAY) LINEUP:

Pedestrian Deposit (Los Angeles): Reverse tension, abrasive composition. The duo of Shannon A. Kennedy and Jonathan Borges is best described as visceral and narrative, informed by elements of experimental sound, harsh noise, musique concrete, neo-classical, dark ambiance and performance art but is not beholden to any one genre.

Tryezz (Chattanooga) calls his style of music "Scenic Groove," a mix of jazz, funk and dance music intended to take listeners to amazing and incredible places straight out of his dreams.

Dixon III (Dalton, GA)

Mr. Strawberry (Chattanooga)

Alex Hampshire (Savannah, GA) is an American poet, b. 1985.
