XXYYXX / Mister Lies

2:00 PM

Come and join us for a BBQ featuring some of Porter's Pub delightful recipes along with live performances: XXYXX, Mister Lies, and Pink Noise Ordinance!

XXYYXX is the name of Orlando, FL’s 17 year old producer, Marcel Everett. Marcel works out of his bedroom creating harmonious music that provokes emotion and transmits vivid images of peace and still sadness. His full-length releases are available for digital download on Relief in Abstract Records.

Mister Lies

"The music is not the truth." That's the mantra you're greeted with when heading to the Bandcamp page of Chicago-based producer Mister Lies, who makes the kind of warm, 4 a.m. downtempo electronic music that carries lineage in the work of Burial and Massive Attack. So what is the truth? Mister Lies is 19-year old student Nick Zanca, who's currently studying philosophy and dramatic writing at Chicago's Columbia College.

Pink Noise Ordinance Pink Noise Ordinance is from Burbank and lives in Los Angeles. He is the DJ for ESMK, and makes his own brand of electronica as his solo project. His music is mysterious, cloudy, and dark, yet highly danceable, and pop oriented. He is a freak mad scientist, often blending cheesy, bubble gum samples into dark, danceable journeys through space. He mainly resides in a tech-house genre, but is prone to minimal experimentation and noise.

Doors at 2 PM, Pink Noise Ordinance 3PM Mister Lies 4:30, XXYYXX 5:30.

Tyler the Creator (SOLD OUT)


At the tender age 20, Tyler, the Creator has already turned the music industry on its head, reignited the nation's hunger for hell-raising rap, directed a handful of widely acclaimed music videos, launched his own clothing line, and realized a childhood dream of starring in his own sketch comedy show on Adult Swim. And all this in the span of about 18 months. Growing up in South L.A., Tyler attended 12 different schools over the span of 12 years, his boundless charisma and creativity making him an odd fit for formal spaces. Along the way, he accrued a motley crew of tight-knit friends equally driven to forge their own path. With Tyler at their helm, they became Odd Future, an army of music misfits, skate rats, shutterbugs, and weirdos who've been dubbed their generation's Wu-Tang Clan. To give his friends something to call their own, Tyler founded a record label whose every move is followed by zealous fans, drooling critics, and muckraking media hungry for controversy. With a Best New Artist VMA freshly under his belt, his Loiter Squad show premiering in March, and a handful of eagerly anticipated albums on the horizon, the mischievous, affable auteur is posed to inherit the earth. Or quite possibly, destroy it while trying.
