BOY – a contagious confection that has spread across the internet like wildfire. The Hamburg-based duo gets your toes tapping, mind playing, feet moving, emotions travelling, head thinking, hips jerking. But above all, they make music that brings a smile to your face. Imagine a mix of the art school elegance of Phoenix, the lively melodics of Feist and the emotional depth of Bon Iver. But to draw such comparisons is superficial and not especially helpful because what you miss is the originality of the BOY concept and the charisma of its two performers. The BOY phenomenon began this summer with their first single ‘Little Numbers’. Now, having conquered their native Germany and Switzerland, they are shipping their sharp brand of pop to the rest of Europe. BOY are both girls. Valeska Steiner sang in several bands in her native Switzerland before moving to Germany, where Sonja Glass grew up, playing the cello in classical orchestras as a child, and later working as a bass player for several pop bands. The duo met when Valeska won a place at a prestigious summer holiday music workshop in Hamburg. There she met Sonja, who had recently returned from a spell studying bass guitar in Holland. BOY’s debut album, “Mutual Friends”, is an autobiographical affair. “It’s about arrivals and new beginnings,” says Valeska, whose songs are written and sung in English. “About hopes and dreams and aspirations. We want to make music that’s positive and hopeful,” explains Valeska,. “There is more to music than heartbreak and loss,” agrees Sonja.

Emilie Autumn

At 8:00pm

With appearances on Leno and Letterman, glossy magazine covers, and guest spots on the albums of such artists as Courtney Love, Otep, Billy Corgan, and TV's 'Metalocalypse' under her corset strings, Emilie Autumn's devilishly dark lyrics, metal-shredding violin solos, and industrial-strength voice reinvent "gothic" for the masses, and goths have never had so much fun.

An Evening With Emilie Autumn

Friday October 18th

Pac Div


Dismissing the seemingly ubiquitous hip-hop clichés, California trio Pacific Division was seen as a breath of fresh air when they surfaced from the underground in the late 2000s. Originally comprised of ten-plus members, the group came about when brothers Like (Gabe Stevenson) and Mibbs (Michael Stevenson), who moved from Los Angeles to northern suburb Palmdale, CA, for their freshmen year in high school, found like-minded hip-hop heads on the school's basketball team. They made Pacific Division an official crew in 2002, but shrank down to Like, Mibbs, and third member, BeYoung (Bryan Young), around 2005.

Their first major offering, the 2006 mixtape Sealed for Freshness: The Blendtape, was a complete departure from popular West Coast rap music. Rhyming over classic hip-hop instrumentals, the whimsical and witty trio sounded more like a hybrid of Slum Village, the Pharcyde, and the Wu-Tang Clan. With the aid of main producer/collaborator Swiff D, Pacific Division was able to build a respectable following via the Internet, particularly by using their MySpace web page. Leaked singles like "F.A.T. Boys '08" and "Women Problems" garnered lots of press, landing them many "Artist to Watch" features in several mainstream publications. The threesome finally signed with major label Universal in 2008 after entertaining a few different offers. In March the following year, the label issued the digital-only, three-song Pacific Division EP, anticipating their debut, Grown Kid Syndrome, to be released later that year.

Featuring Cash Out, Zed Zilla, Sky Glizzy

Yo Gotti is a rap artist born on May 19th 1982 as Mario Mims, in Memphis, Tennessee. Growing up in Memphis, Yo Gotti quickly learned about recognizing reality. When he was in the third grade, Federal Agents raided his family's residence. His mother and his aunts were indicted and sent to serve 10 to 15 years because they refused to snitch. No wonder he feels as though he was virtually born into street life. "That's the bloodline I come from," he boasts. "I've got women that are realer than the dudes out here."
