"Dead When She's Awake" explores the violent passions of a young woman whose search for her mother leads her to Cass Corridor and self-discovery.

MELTING MOMENTS

Melting Moments is the duo of Anna Vitale on lead vocals and keyboards and Jason Adam Voss on lead guitar and backing vocals. They play in the idiom of ace deuce casio noise sex pop sweets, and their music combines poetic lyrics about such topics as rock music, dragons, body image and anti-social behavior with gnarly guitar work and danceable beats. They will have a secret new lineup and format for the show.

WALLACE BROTHERS

The members of this Ypsi-based pop duo are both in fact Wallaces, but only Mark is a brother, since his sister Carey is a girl. They sing together and apart and Carey writes succinct, literate lyrics to go with Mark's expertly written pop melodies. They have just recently released "Popular Songs that Will Live Forever, Vol. 5: Rock and Roll," which will knock your socks off, and rumour has it that volume six is even better and is in the electropop tradition.

WANDA

Though she/they is/are only a few shows into her/their career as a band, Wanda has been wowing audiences with an original sounds that fits right into the new exciting young folk scene.
