From the event Facebook page: "Ben Millburn - Louisiana native and Austin resident Ben Millburn released a two part EP series called The Balance EPs over the last year. Austin Town Hall described Part I as "brimming with the perfect backing harmony and this swelling of huge guitar riffs that ring out in your speaker long after the tune is over." PopMatters described Part II as "downright chilly, like if Kurt Vile’s weirdest stuff was even more glacial and empty. Its folksy guitar is less down-home friendliness and more tumbleweedy desert, no life around for miles." Millburn is joined live by his new group, Sunglass Moustache, who bring the records to life and who make the live show a unique psychedelic rock and roll experience.

Denton Hatcher - Denton Hatcher is one of the south’s budding singer-songwriters/
producer. Hatcher's music is familiar but diverse from the many influences that have helped him cultivate an eclectic yet deeply personal sound. Hatcher draws inspiration from many styles, but his music stands together like a strong foundation, one that quickly reaches the audience, opens their eyes a little wider."
