Stephaniesid, born in 2004, lives in Asheville, NC and makes pop music for "the darkness in you that's trying to find the light." The band possesses all the proper tools needed to create well-crafted songs and beautiful recordings. The music explores both the melancholy and triumph of human life and love, the players being equally faithful stewards of large, intoxicating swells and infectious, danceable melodies. Recordings affix weepy synthesizers, vibraphone lines, guitars, thick bass notes, quirky keyboard sounds, horns, and coquettish, curly, tenacious female vocals. The live show is unabashed energy funneled through Iowa-birthed and Texas-raised former gymnast Stephanie Morgan (vox, guitar, synth), southerner Chuck Lichtenberger (keys/vox/bass pedals), and Maine-born Tim Haney (drums), and a collective cast of other players.
The band lives in Asheville, NC, a city widely known for its musical soul, where they have been voted "Best Rock Band" in the reputable Mountain Xpress poll 4 years in a row.
Stephaniesid has released 3 full-length albums, has had songs featured on Showtime's "Nurse Jackie", Team Ibex's "The Red Helmet", and The Weather Channel, as well as on numerous compilations. The band's music was the subject of a rock ballet in their hometown of Asheville, NC, and the band founded the indie pop festival called POPAsheville.

THE OLD CEREMONY
The Old Ceremony makes music so potent that you may go blind listening to it. But don't worry, canes are in this season.
After four highly acclaimed albums and seven years of touring, the Chapel Hill, NC band has built a large and loyal following. TOC has performed with CAKE, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Chuck Berry, Polyphonic Spree, Mountain Goats, and Avett Brothers, and was included in PASTE Magazine's "Top 100 Albums of 2006."
TOC is figureheaded by songwriter Django Haskins, and includes bassist Matt Brandau, drummer Dan Hall, vibes/organist Mark Simonsen, and violinist/keyboardist Gabriele Pelli.
THE ROYAL TINFOIL
Drunken streetwalker, Sabbath Hawks, fell out of boxcar outside of a nearby, dry county when she met the traveling salesman, Lamont Boles. He was out on bail for mysterious charges involving a small ectotherm and a brass quartet, the records for which have mysteriously disappeared, when they decided to devise their master stroke: hoodwink the corrupt Reverend Thurgood Calhoun to plunder his spoils.
Disguised in choir robes, Lily picked the locks with her hat pins. The hungover duo infiltrated his holy hidey-hole only to find Calhoun's illegal still and an evil, underground nun-brothel. In a fit of fury, Sabbath Hawks flew at the altar and subdued Calhoun using only his clerical collar and a strategic spray of holy water, but was knocked unconscious by a sinister raven that careened from an organ pipe.
Meanwhile, Lamont had surreptitiously descended back into the nun dungeon. Unable to resist the sirens, things seemed mildly grim for Lamont until his trusty she-wolf burst in the church and began to rend his appendages. Regaining his senses, Lamont donned the collar and commanded the zombie nun whores.
The she-wolf had graciously begun to thrash Lily's feet to rouse her when Lamont entered with a trail of hypnotized harlots. Bruised and blood-soaked, the pair proclaimed Lamont the new fraudulent Reverend and they vowed to empty the still and bring in as much cash as possible to make their getaway.
Before they left, they saved the town with their zombie army by serving the whisky to every citizen ending toothaches, temporary insomnia, 8 people's virginity, 2 marriages, and those horrible potholes on Burgundy St. They then formed a band. The Royal Tinfoil...
