There's no mistaking Lucius for anyone else onstage: Led by singers Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe, the five-piece Brooklyn group wear matching stylized outfits and perform in lock-step unison. There's more to Lucius than looks, though: Laessig and Wolfe harmonize so tightly it's tough to tell whose voice is whose. They play keyboards on catchy, distinctive indie-pop tunes while Danny Molad, Peter Lalish and Andrew Burri flesh out the sound with guitars and drums.

You Won't is the Boston-based duo of Josh Arnoudse and Raky Sastri, fast friends ever since they squared off in a fierce but poorly executed sword-fight in 1999. The Massachusetts natives collaborated on a litany of non-musical projects prior to forming a band, conspiring to produce a series of little-seen experimental films, guerrilla theater stunts, and duct-taped refrigerators filled with toxic sludge. You Won't was born in early 2011 following three quixotic months spent recording in the wild suburban woodlands of Eastern Massachusetts. Following the release of their full-length debut Skeptic Goodbye in 2012, the pair has toured across the United States and Canada, garnering praise from the likes of SPIN, NPR, The New York Times, and KEXP for their distinctly lyrical, insistently melodic, and thoroughly percussive sound. The band has quickly developed a reputation for their dynamic and enthusiastically unorthodox live performances and 2013 found them sharing stages with The Lumineers, The Joy Formidable, Josh Ritter, The Antlers, and other highly-esteemed performing artists of note.
