The Veldt:
Daniel and Danny Chavis are natives of Raleigh/ Chapel Hill, North Carolina and East Village residents for the past 28 years. They are also co-founders of the groundbreaking band The Veldt, who lifted their band’s name from a Ray Bradbury science fiction story. Musically reared in the church and juke-joints of their native southern state, the twins have been performing since they were children, listening to music that included gospel, Motown and Pink Floyd. In March, they, together with bassist/programmer Hayato Nakao, return to their roots with the release of The Shocking Fuzz of Your Electric Fur: The Drake Equation Mixtape EP.

Happy Abandon:
Happy Abandon is an orchestral indie rock band based in Chapel Hill consisting of Peter Vance, Jake Waits, Alex Thompson, and Justin Ellis. Although the four members met as students at UNC in 2010, Happy Abandon didn’t form until early 2015. After significant legwork on the road and at home throughout 2016, the band is currently planning tours all over the US in April, June, and September, and will release their first Album in August 2017 on Schoolkids Records.
