Here’s information on the three bands playing at the party:
The Electronic Park
Taking its name from the locally infamous 80’s video arcade in Charlotte, NC, The Electronic Park is an experimental musical project of intergalactic traveler of time and space – Leisure McCorkle. The Electronic Park creates a dialectical sound that challenges the traditional format, structure, and genre of modern music. Influenced heavily by the new music of the late 70’s and early 80’s (New Wave), to the more recent collapse of corporate musical genres seen via social media and organic sub-culture movements, a sonic tasting for a futurist paradigm in popular music.

POP/INDIE ROCK/SHELL. More info.
The Roman Spring
The Roman Spring is a Triangle, NC based five piece, concocting dreamy, Americana tinged pop: think Band of Horses meets R.E.M. More info.
