7 PM | $10 | 18+
Tickets on sale Friday, 8/25 at 10 AM EDT
Phantoms, comprised of Los Angeles-based natives Kyle Kaplan and Vinnie Pergola, are a dance act that does exactly that. Often tough to box in… the boys’ style lends itself to many elements of electronic and pop music; while still managing to always incorporate distinct synths and drum samples that have become synonymous with their “genre” of alternative electronic. Stemming from deep-seated roots in music and entertainment backgrounds, K&V put their entire beings into the project. They keep everyone continually dancing with an impressive live set of drum pads, synthesizers and midi controllers, while also keeping audiences engaged through their own style of humor on social media platforms. A full-time job for the band. Their fun and downright captivating personalities shine through all aspects of Phantoms.
Paperwhite, brother sister Katie and Ben Marshall are a Dream-Pop duo from Brooklyn, NY. Katie is the singer and songwriter of the band. Her sophisticated melodies bounce from star to star in a lush galaxy of synthesized textures. Ben, also the drummer for Brooklyn band Savoir Adore, is the producer and co-writer. They’re nostalgic synth riffs shimmer above heart felt chord changes and hypnotic pounding drums. With four singles to date, and a debut EP “Magic” they’ve had nothing but enormous love from the blogosphere. Receiving the Hypem title “Most Blogged Artist” twice in a row, Paperwhite is a band worth keeping an eye on.
