8:00pm Lower Wolves - REM Tribute
9:30pm Gigantic - Pixies Tribute
The Pixies have had a profound effect on all of us in this band. We are doing this for multiple reasons but mainly out of respect for their music, energy, spirit and originality. We are holding true to reproducing the records but more importantly we want to kick out the spastic energy that they had on those records.
Focusing on R.E.M.'s early period as a beloved college/alternative live act, Lower Wolves performs R.E.M. covers from the years 1981-1987. A typical set includes album tracks, singles and obscurities delivered with the energy and intensity that characterized R.E.M.'s shows in the early '80s.

Neal Carson plays keyboards and fills out the sound for all those amazing Sting classics
Andrew Biley plays drums and shows off his chops playing the syncopation of Stewart Copeland
