When Slum Village emerged in the late 1990s, the highly regarded Detroit trio of T3, Baatin and Jay Dee made a startling admission: their group was a liquid association with members coming and going during the group's evolution. True to their word, Slum Village has already gone through a number of line-up changes. Their now solid roster will be rolling through Brooklyn to take over the Knitting Factory with their diverse sound and presence.

David E Beats and the White House Band is a loud, captivating, and energetic Brooklyn-based band. Formed in February 2010, the band created their own genre of music "New Vogue": a combination of Rap, Hard Rock and Blues. From a Hip Hop perspective, you can compare Beats melodies to a Kid Cudi, from a Rock perspective; Beats solos are reminiscent of a psychedelic 60's Jimmy Hendrix, while his melodies are reminiscent of a more modern Buddy Guy.

Wu Lyf is nothing; 4 dumb kids, looking for a place to call home, two brothers greet two brothers and play heavy pop.
Bass Drum of Death is a band from Mississippi. John plays guitar and sings and Colin plays the drums. Together they make blown-out, blazing songs. They are set to release their debut LP GB City on Fat Possum Records. John was Fat Possum's worst employee 3 years ago. He wrote and recorded the whole record himself using just a drumset, a guitar, a usb microphone, a computer, and a shitload of talent.

Australian Blue Mountains rock & rollers Cloud Control may have begun on a whim, but winning a battle of the bands show has never proven so fortunate. Having already accumulated numerous prizes and accolades in Australia and supporting such acts as Arcade Fire, Vampire Weekend, The Temper Trap, and Local Natives, Cloud Control is currently touring in support of their major debut Bliss Release.

Beige's work with color has led them to show their work in a clear and positive manner-in the lines and tones of beige. Yvette is a NY-based vocalist, songwriter, keyboardist, and bandleader whose work is influenced by the effects of everyday industrial environments on personal psychology, women's issues, and ambiguous identity.

Since the band's conception as an acoustic folk trio in 2005, they've become a force to be reckoned with, reputed as an act who challenges the conventions of popular music, cultivating a sound all their own. With substantial headway made in the US and Europe, Mother Mother continue to build on that momentum with EUREKA, their third LP that offers up eccentric, hook laden pop-meets-rock songs housed in creative arrangements with clever lyrics and intricate harmonies. Having already graced the stage with Weezer, Pearl Jam, Tokyo Police Club, The Decemberists and Spoon, this Canadian five-piece are a force to be reckoned with. Q magazine probably says it best: Mother Mother are "musically fearless, melodically inspired Canadians at their envelope-pushing best."

Hyra Da Hero

July 27, Doors: 7:30 PM / Show: 8:30 PM

Hyro Da Hero spins his own cycle of hip hop on his debut album Birth, School, Work, Death. Hyro loads rock ‘n' roll attitude into explosive, engaging and enthralling rap music. With the crunch of a power chord and the snap of a rhyme, the Houston-bred Los Angeles-based MC spits pure fire. Produced by Ross Robinson-the man behind Korn, Slipknot and At the Drive-in's legendary debuts-Birth, School, Work, Death sounds like Nas fronting Rage Against the Machine.
