1:45 - 2:45 pm - Lace and Lead
Lace & Lead is a West Coast country band and songwriting team fronted by a vocal duo that consists of singers Trysh Hill and Emily Tanke. The group's energetic performances, tight harmonies, and unique songwriting have made them one of the fastest rising names on the West Coast and beyond. The band arose out of the small clubs and honky-tonks in and around the Portland area. The band's lead singers, Emily Tanke and Trysh Hill were involved in separate music projects before getting together. Trysh had recently returned from recording in Nashville, and Emily was attending school after touring Europe with a vocal group. Fiddler/guitarist/vocalist Matt Hundley began working with the girls in separate start-up bands. On a whim, the two groups decided to try a collaboration. The moment the girls sang together, the musical chemistry was undeniable, and Lace & Lead was born. Michael Hensley, who has performed throughout Oregon, Washington, and his native California as a virtuoso guitarist in both country and jazz groups, joined the lineup, adding not only his driving lead guitar skills, but a fourth vocal harmony as well. The band's line-up was finalized with the addition of Jim Bevan on percussion, who gives the band its signature dancability, and bassist Brandon Gonzales from Texas, who blends his rock and country influences to complete the rhythm section of Lace & Lead. The differing musical influences of Lace & Lead's players create a unique, but purely country sound. Bits of every American genre can be heard in the rhythms, melodies, and songwriting. The band's powerful harmonies and the dynamic performances continue to earn Lace & Lead their own unique niche in country music. Take a look at Lace and Lead's cover of Little White Church!
3:15 - 4:15 pm - The Rad Trads
Based in New York City, The Rad Trads have quickly gained a reputation as one of New York's most entertaining live acts.

Fronted by four powerful horns, stirred up by a driving rhythm section, and featuring soulful vocal harmonies to boot, The Rad Trads consistently win over audiences with their unique energy and enthusiasm. The band can be found performing regularly for capacity crowds in NYC at top clubs or touring across the United States.

5:30 - 6:15 pm - Dresses
Comprised of Timothy Heller (vocals/ukulele/piano) and Jared Ryan Maldonado (vocals/guitar), the frock-rock duo have been playing music together since January 2012 and recently released their debut album, Sun Shy. Though Heller and Maldonado, both 21, lived only two miles away from each other in Stumptown, it wasn't until discovering they had a bunch of mutual friends in common online that they decided to connect and try to write music together. "She was coming over one day after school and I was really nervous because I had nothing to work on. I had never written with someone else," says Maldonado, remembering the first IRL encounter he had with Heller. "As she was actually getting off the bus, I wrote the first few lines of 'Blew My Mind.' She came in, I played it for her and she loved it." Not only is "Blew My Mind" the first song Dresses ever wrote together, but it's also the first single off Sun Shy and perfectly summarizes what the band is all about, musically: Sunny melodies and dynamic guitars with a lyrical undercurrent forced by bruised hearts and broken dreams. Whether listening to "Back To Life," a playful tale of new love, or "Tell A Lie," a refined romp about making every moment count, Heller and Maldonado are able to artfully balance introspection with affection. Don't shy away from checking out this video from Dresses.
6:45 - 8:15 pm - Hillstomp
Portland Oregon junkbox blues duo HILLSTOMP is infamous for digging through the dumps and forgotten backwoods of American music, recycling traditional elements into a refreshing and distinctive brand of do-it-yourself hill country blues stomp. North Mississippi trance blues, a bit of Appalachia, and a dash of punkabilly come clanging and tumbling from assorted buckets, cans and BBQ lids, all drenched in rambunctious slide guitar. Hillstomp bringing it live!
8:45 - 10:15 pm - The Jackalope Saints
Based in Portland, Ore., The Jackalope Saints play string-band music rooted in folk and bluegrass traditions. Adding a twist of soul and stirring the pot a new sound surfaces: Navy Bluegrass River Rock. It is the howling sound of wind in the trees, cowboys at a fire and Jackalopes echoing back on a warm desert night. Saints songs come from the whimsical mind of singer-songwriter Clinton Herrick, whose playful and piercing lyrics recall half-successful relationships and reveal constant curiosity and a desire to create magic from the mundane. Clinton's rhythm-guitar and Jay Parshall's bass anchor melodies from Heather Roberts' soulful fiddle and John Chap's licks on anything from mandolin and banjo to slide-guitar. They are recently joined by Lucas Welliver, illustrious fifth Saint and master of keys and accordion. The Jackalope Saints will get you dancing.
