9pm- Tart Vandelay Tart Vandelay is an indie/alternative band hailing from Rochester, NY. The group began as a collaboration between musical couple Kate Halligan and Marty LoFaso. The duo's music pulls from their various influences, incorporating styles such as rock, funk, jazz, blues, folk, and various Latin genres as well, in order to create an original style. http://www.soundcloud.com/tartvandelay   10pm - Jon Lewis Band "Jon Lewis has tapped into something really great on 'In Disguise,' his new album: a real emotional connection and sincerity. A singer-songwriter, Lewis doesn't hide behind his guitar, but seems to be having a genuine conversation with the listener — there's a lot of his own soul pumped into the music." Jake Clapp - City Newspaper "Lewis has mastered the art of the singer-songwriter genre through writing heartfelt, confessional songs with widespread appeal." Leah Creary - Rochester City Newspaper http://www.jonlewis.bandcamp.com/   11pm - Northern Spies From Rochester, NY comes NORTHERN SPIES. The four bespectacled musicians came together in the late Spring of 2014, playing a mixture of originals and covers of old favorites. https://northernspiesroc.bandcamp.com/

8:30 - Co-Existence Co-Existence is a bright new face in the world of innovative, creative, and unique musical perspective. They recently released a 3 track EP which is available to stream at soundcloud.com/co-existence They are currently working on a full length album as well and will be releasing it in summer 2015. Since Ryan began his career in Early 2008, he has been coming up with unique, creative, beautiful works that have caught the eyes and ears of many worldwide. In mid 2014 the addition of Oliver Haynes, an inventive, sophisticated and melodic trumpet player, as well as Phil Lewalle, a brilliant, unbelievable pianist, Colin Fleming, one of the gnarliest groove oriented bassists, and Matt Perkins an incredibly tight pocket drummer with unbelievable chops, brought Ryan's compositions to life to form Co-Existence. Not only did these players bring the tunes to life, but they as well are composers whose pieces will be brought to the table! Ryan, as well as many of the other band members, have played with as well as opened for and collaborated with artists such as, Cabo Frio, Chuck Mangione, Charlie Hunter, Maynard Ferguson, Soulive, Tony Levin, Spyro Gyra, Gary Clark Jr., Nigel Hall, Christian McBride, and Robert Randolph. The band is endorsed and supported by companies such as Curt Mangan Strings, Aslin Dane guitars, Brazen Guitars, Dunlop, Godin Guitars, and Exotic Pedals. Co-Existence brings an informed, professional and outgoing attitude as well as beautifully written pieces of music for listeners enjoyment everywhere! This group of powerhouse musicians is not to be underestimated and will be gigging, and performing around the East coast. So look out for these cats, and follow them on Facebook as well as ReverbNation to catch them playing in a town near you. You can expect to be hearing more from these guys soon! https://soundcloud.com/co-existence   9:15 - The Mighty High and Dry With the influence of Rolling Stones, Black Keys, and Neil Young audible within their performances, The Mighty High & Dry’s sound shines through each song, rooted by Kyle Vock’s (mostly upright) deep-digging bass, Chris Teal’s dynamic and crisp drumming, and Alan Murphy’s guitar hooks and stylistically flexible voice. With lyrical tones that range from humanistic (“Here’s To The King”, “Trust Me Brother”), Dionysian (“Hangover Bridge”, “Shine”) to animalistic (“The Snake”, “Love and War”), MHD paints life’s adventure as an ever-unfolding mirror, which hangs over an altar with full bar. MHD’s self-titled debut album is scheduled for release in August of 2013 and boasts 14 tracks that resonate as wildly as the favorite rock albums from your past and future. Murphy’s song “Dam” has been chosen as a semi-finalist in the 2012 International Songwriting competition in the AAA category. "Influenced by a veritable hall of fame list of rock musicians, this Rochester-based quartet is gaining some acclaim of their own. The Mighty High & Dry's sound is rooted in soulful blues, but will surprise you with its ability to funk it up with the best of 'em. The grooves are infectious, the songwriting solid, and the musicianship workmanlike. It all adds up to Heartland Rock with an almost jazzy feel. The group is scheduled to release its self-titled debut album this May, and is already receiving critical praise." - David Yockel, Jr. City Newspaper http://www.reverbnation.com/themightyhighdry   10:30 - Bridge Bridge is a hard-hitting progressive rock band based out of Boston, Mass. They perform original music drawing on influences from Yes to King Crimson, Bach to Radiohead and so on. Expect ripping guitar solos, backbeat-driven drumming and intricate vocal harmonies. https://soundcloud.com/musicbybridge

Come share your music at what has been described by many as the hottest open mic night in town! (2012 CITY choice awards - Best Open Mic) Each performer is allowed two songs. Performers that don't use "songs" (comedians, poets, improvisational music, etc) are allowed up to 5-7 minutes for their set (we give them a five minute warning to let them know to wrap things up in the next 1-2 minutes). Sign up sheet goes out about an hour or so before open mic begins, and order is determined on a first come/first serve basis. First person to sign up gets an extra song! WE PROVIDE: The PA system (mics, speakers, etc), guitar cables, an old beat-up piano, a host/sound engineer. Sometimes there are musicians hanging around to play for you if you are a singer without an accompanist. WE DON'T PROVIDE: Guitars, amps, drums. Unless you are a singer or pianist, bring your own stuff! Our format is best suited to solo and smaller group performances with acoustic instruments (guitar, piano, etc). We do not recommended full bands, however we will allow it as long as the musicians are respectful of others' time and space (and play at a respectful volume for the audience). Drummers must bring in their drums before open mic begins (8:30) and set them up off to the side as to make for a speedy transition and not disrupt others' performances. Open mic begins around 8:30pm and goes until the night dies down (usually 11:00-11:30ish). Any other questions can be emailed to the show's host Willy O'Riley at willyoriley@lovincup.com.

Doors Open: 7:00pm
A short History Lesson: Oktoberfest traditionally starts in the third weekend in September and ends the first sunday of October. It began with the Royal Wedding on 12 October 1810. Crown Prince Ludwig, later to become King Ludwig I, was married to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on 12 October 1810. The citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates to celebrate the happy royal event. The fields were renamed Theresienwiese ("Theres'a Fields") to honor the Crown Princess, although the locals have since abbreviated the name simply to "Wiesn". Horse races in the presence of the royal family marked the close of the event that was celebrated as a festival for the whole of Bavaria. The decision to repeat the horse races in subsequest years gave rise to the tradition of Oktoberfest. The Oktoberfest continues in 1811 In 1811, an added feature to the horse races was the first Agricultural Show, designed to boost Bavarian agriculture. The horse races, which were the oldest - and at one time - the most popular event of the festival are no longer held today. But the Agricultural Show is still held every three years during the Oktoberfest on the southern part of the festival grounds. 2015 marks the 182nd year of this worldwide celebration! Come down and enjoy Oktoberfest brews and some German food to celebrate this cultural festival! Price: $15.00 public/ $13 Rochester students and faculty
