September 22nd Concert Details:
- Glass Mansions (opener)
Glass Mansions, led by the charismatic and sultry voice of Jayna Doyle, is an Electro-Pop/Rock band from South Carolina, influenced by modern and 90s pop, heavy synths and tight, dance-friendly rhythms. The electropop quartet of vocalist Jayna Doyle, keyboardist Blake Arambula, guitarist Patrick Beardsley and drummer Rodney Liles have been steadily winning over audiences across the country for the past five years. The band has 10+ tours under their belt, multiple appearances at festivals like SXSW, Warped Tour and Florida Music Festival, as well as a recently recorded Daytrotter session.
- Stop Light Observations (headliner)
Stop Light Observations consists of members Will Blackburn (lead vocal), Cubby (songwriter, piano, synth, vocals), Louis Duffie (guitar, synth, percussion) and Luke Withers (drums). The roots of SLO began when Cubby first began assembling the lineup as a middle schooler, but things didn’t truly take off until the band released their acclaimed 2013 debut album, ‘Radiation.’ Metronome Charleston hailed their “emotive and elegant” songs, which blended arena-sized rock with undercurrents of hip-hop and folk, while the Charleston City Paper profiled their unexpected rise, which “took many in the music industry by surprise” as they went from relative unknowns to playing Bonnaroo and selling out Charleston’s largest rock club, The Music Farm, in roughly a year. Since then, they’ve gone on to break the record for most consecutive sellouts at The Music Farm and perform live shows all across the country, including more standout festival sets from Firefly to Summerfest.
