Everyone Is Dirty
Everyone is Dirty first started shocking audiences with the raw power of their music in 2013. Formed in Oakland, California, the band quickly struck a nerve with their explosive sound and electrifying live show. They developed a powerful and singular chemistry virtually overnight—the combination of frontwoman Sivan Lioncub’s electric-violin sorcery, powerful stage presence, charged lyrics and sometimes ethereal, sometimes ferocious vocals; Chris Daddio’s pawn shop guitar crunch; the driving post-punk bass lines of Tyler English; and Tony Sales’ expressive and explosive drumming coalesced into a force to be reckoned with. Having just played Noise Pop 25, Everyone Is Dirty is heading on a US tour for all of March, making stops at SXSW, and Treefort Music Festivals along the way.
Spaceface is psychedelic rock band from Memphis TN offering a refreshing approach on the genre, with transparent '70s references but also strikingly modern elements that make this trick work. Using a solid and sometimes raucous rhythm section, other worldly guitar tones, and catchy vocal melodies, Spaceface has taken vintage psychedelic rock vibes and mixed them with accessible washy, pop-surf influences. Led by Jake Ingalls who also plays guitar and synthesizer in The Flaming Lips, Spaceface's music and show indicate that the two are truly kindred spirits. The group works to bring the concert grade experience to a club level. Employing a DIY light rig and other theatrical elements, Spaceface is sure to dazzle any concert goer.
They have two Ep's that were released in the past year and are touring in support of their newest record called "Sun Kids" out this April. They have been a touring band for 3 years playing shows and festivals all across the country, including Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, AL, SXSW in Austin, Treefort Music Festival in Boise ID, and ACM Fest in OKC. Some of the acts Spaceface has toured and worked with include a broad range of genres like Phantogram, The Flaming Lips, Bright Light Social Hour, Young Buffalo, Prince Rama, Swimm, Morgan Delt, Stardeath and White Dwarfs and Electric Wurms.

"I love Carletta's singing. She has an androgyny similar to Nina Simone. . . but without the bitterness."
---Stephin Merritt (Magnetic Fields)
Mr. Walker is more in the realm of sweaty rock 'n' roll than torch songs”
— New York Times
"Drag Queens lip synch, so don't let the wigs fool you, this is one of the best vocalists you could ever hear live, the kind of singer that doesn't even need a mic, the kind of singer that tugs at your heart strings. Great songs and a great band elevate Carletta Sue Kay to an extra-ordinary level of performance. Heart, Soul and Talent, on the grandest levels. I love Carletta Sue Kay"
— Christopher Owens (Girls)
“…Infinitely more touching than Antony.”
