Born and raised in Minneapolis MN, Andrew Broder has dedicated the better part of his thirty-plus years to carving out his own singular path in music. Andrew has spent time as a cutting and scratching hip-hop battle DJ, a snotty punk rocker, a challenging and thoughtful improviser, soundtrack composer, working sideman, producer, remixer, beat-maker, poet, brutal noise-monger and above all a fearless, restless and provocative songwriter.
His work is a study in surprise and defying expectation. With his records as Fog, he re-defined the turntable as a compositional tool, and his contributions since to avant hip-hop, electronic music, rock, jazz and metal have been equally engaging, and envelope-pushing. His lyrics are cutting and evocative, his melodies poignant and tart, and his curiosity leads him to unexpected juxtapositions in sound and image. In whatever genre or medium he works, he strives to take the listener somewhere they have never been, or make them more keenly aware of somewhere they already are.
IN/VIA is the synth piano project of Minneapolis musician (and former Dark Dark Dark songwriter) Nona Marie Invie. Using layers of synthesizers, pianos and samples, Invie creates a warm atmosphere that invites the listener to quiet and look inward. Will be accompanied here by Fletcher Barnhill on electric bass.
Keith Millions is new kid on the block. He's not just a party DJ he's a party curator. You may know him from the popular dance party NIGHTCHAIN. Keith prefers to focus on blends while keeping the crowd on its toes with his distinct mash-up style of DJing. He pulls from an extensive knowledge dance and genres to create a soundscape that is unique and hard to resist.
