*Robert Kerr

He is a playwright and occasional songwriter originally from Minnesota who now lives in Brooklyn. His plays have been produced in New York City, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Florida.

*Matt Lydon

I moved to New York City in the fall of 2002 one month after getting married. When my best friend heard I was moving, he asked me to be in his band. So I started playing bass in the Old Flames, but mostly we just practiced and played parties. Three shows at the Bowery Poetry Club later, the band died a slow but not so painful death. I began performing by myself at the open mics. Now I sing and play my guitar, sometimes with other people, but mainly by myself.

*Old Hat

Old Hat is a group of friends that gather for the opportunity play a song on occasion. One evening Deenah crashed a rehearsal that Dibs, Betsy, and Preston were having and all of a sudden we had our own song.
Then while performing we found Dan playing percussion for us. It’s a group that formed out of whatever was present at the time, so the instrumentation is not quite set, sometimes autoharps guitars and ukuleles make appearances. Either way, everyone gets to sing along.

*Prewar Yardsale

Prewar Yardsale is Dina Levy and Mike Rechner and their new son Harmon Gillespie Levy Rechner. Harmon writes the songs, while Dina and Mike sing and perform them on bucket, tin can, and guitar.

We are singing a happy song because we have a new CD “We are Singing a Sad Song”. “We are Singing a Sad Song” is our 2nd full length CD with Olive Juice Music, produced by Major Matt Mason USA. We are currently recording a split 12” with Huggabroomstik at Care-A-Lot Studios, and we have a song on the new UK CD “Wild, Wild West, Smoking Gun Compilation”.

*The Baby Skins

Named after a mysterious concoction developed by NYC songsmith Paleface, the Baby Skins are a musical duo that formed in the last quarter of 2001. Collaborators Crystal Madrilejos and Angela Carlucci take the stage proudly displaying their many badges of honor and sometimes black knit ski masks. The two share guitar and xylophone duties while weaving in and out of haunting vocal harmonies. Their acoustic folk songs deal with unrequited love, forbidden love, betrayal, friendship and magical babies which excrete white fecal matter. Their live show will leave you twitching and emaciated in their rainbow - coloured sparkly shadow.
