Music: Pop / Rock / Indie
Dream-like Rock with more hooks than your granpappy's tackle box.
They've been floating all over the scene for a while and have held several admirers in the Shoe-Gaze/Post-Punk community. Having outlasted many of their peers, they join us on the Astoria stage.

Nigel Tung is a one man symphony...and he pulls it off gracefully. His voice is ethereal, his songs are lush and his delivery is intense. It's rare to see someone fresh out of the gate with such a mature collection of original music. Not to be overlooked.

PIcking up more steam than a driving scene from Batman Returns, Midnight Lions are creating one HELL of a buzz as they continue to win over every listener with unparalelled devotion.

4 piece indie rock ressurected after a brief hiatus and more inspired than ever. Hand picked by your friends at CrowsNest specifically for this show.
