Brick + Mortar
Sometimes music saves people from taking the wrong path and that’s exactly what it did for Brandon Asraf. While his partner, John Tacon, grew up in a relatively normal suburban setting, Asraf grew up “like wolves” amid five siblings in a New Jersey household headed by a conman father. Dad’s scheme ultimately tore the family apart. “Mom didn’t take everything that happened that the best,” Asraf Says. You can learn more about that in VICE’s article: “My Buddy’s Dad Was a Blood Diamond Smuggler”…

Brick + Mortar have truly been building a movement. Spreading a message of empathy, positivity, and self motivation…
The Unlikely Candidates - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
The Unlikely Candidates
The Unlikely Candidates, debuted at a wild high school party in their hometown of Fort Worth, Texas as an impromptu musical duo. Founding members Kyle Morris and Cole Male sensed that something more enduring than a simple party performance lay in store for their future. Fast forward to 2017 and the band’s EP, Bed Of Liars, which featured hit tracks like “Your Love Could Start A War” (over 4.5 million streams on Spotify) and “Ringer” (over 1.4 million streams on Spotify). The band has toured with Sublime With Rome, The Offspring, the Dirty Heads and Grizfolk. The Unlikely Candidates are made up of Kyle Morris (vocals), Brent Carney (lead guitar), Cole Male (guitar), Jared Hornbeek (bass) and Kevin Goddard (drums). A lot of amazing new music is coming in 2018 from the band, so stay tuned for more announcements!
Northern National - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Northern National
Alternative band Northern National released their debut EP The New Age in the fall of 2016 and have never looked back. The Dallas, TX based 4 piece has shared the stage with acts such as Andy Grammer, Echosmith, MAGIC!, and in the summer of 2017 toured nationally with Blue October. The New Age features 5 indie-rock gems, including their debut single, Love Is Fire, and their heartfelt love song Dallas, which caught the attention of Spotify.

Love Is Fire was featured on Spotify's Discover Weekly playlist and charted on Spotify's Viral 50 worldwide. Music curators such as Topsify, Filtr, and even Coca-Cola, have also featured the song on their playlists. Since the release of The New Age, Northern National's songs have been streamed over 1.3 million times and counting. You might have even heard them while watching TBS or MTV.

Fresh off of their tour with Blue October, Northern National partnered with producer Dwight Baker (MISSIO, The Wind and The Wave) in Austin, TX. Together they crafted their second EP titled D.A.R.K., which is set to release in the spring of 2018.

However, their newest single Slow Down and might be their most radio friendly song to date. Opening with a chorus of "Woahs" and a foot stomping beat that's sure to get stuck in your head, you will be singing along before the first verse even starts. If there is a band to watch in 2018, Northern National is at the top of that list.
