Radio Eris
“Philadelphia’s post everything band” A.D. Amorosi, City Paper

“Radio Eris craft discordant loveliness from poetry and sound. Founded by shamanic poetess Lora Bloom and studio visionary Matt Stevenson, their live shows are cathartic and overpowering, a vibrant wall of sound incorporating dance, improvisation and spontaneous anarchy into a heady mix.“ Adam Fieled, Philadelphia Independent.

Audiophyle
Audiophyle has been a do-it-yourself operation for over 10 years now. A venue like the Highwire Gallery is the type of venue we want to play because the organization embraces the do-it-yourself attitude with distinguished professionalism. The Highwire provides a space that has no rules or boundaries for the creation that takes place within it. Plus we really enjoy inter-mixing with the other artists contributing to the event. Audiophyle has always walked away from past shows inspired with a desire to continue creating and contributing to the Philadelphia artistic scene.

Thomas Nöla
Bostonian Thomas Nöla and his fluctuating orchestra waltz you through the golden ages, score curious zoetropes, and melt the senses. Sometimes they even visit your town. After debuting with the 2005 soundtrack to his own film "The Doctor", Nöla has gone on to release 3 more full lengths and entertained the moody cabarets of Germany and Spain. But what is to come next?

Thomas Nöla will perform his set with an intimate, stripped-back lineup. More at www.eskimofilms.com

David E. Williams
Though he's dabbled in cabaret, abrasive electronics and even film scores, David E. Williams is best known for electro-symphonic pop and a lyrical humor so dark that it's not really funny. Some might call it gallows humor, but "gas chamber humor" is a bit more accurate for his love songs rife with murder, abuse and obscure references to eating. Williams has been described as "Barry Manilow's evil twin" (Jim Knipfel, NY Press), "Liberace with a brain tumor" (Michael Moynihan, Blood Axis) and "Andrew Lloyd Webber in the final stages of cerebral cancer" (Headpress, U.K.). In 2007, Italy's Old Europa Cafe Records released THE APPEAL OF DISCARDED ORTHODOXY, a critically-acclaimed double CD of 38 international artists covering Williams' songs.
