For one night only, this most secret of societies will convene at Empire for an evening of music and ritual - see what secrets await you.

SeepeopleS

SeepeopleS is singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Will Bradford’s longtime independent cult alt-rock project whose stylistically manic collection of ethereal electronics, agitated guitar rock, narcotic samples, atmospheric pop, and acoustic-based song craft collide in a massive melodic bang that serves as the bedrock for the band’s intense, brooding lyrics and bright, sunny pop melodies.  Through four albums—with a fifth on the way—and hundreds of live shows, SeepeopleS have created a rare beast: a narrative of timeless songs that challenge the mainstream, speak universal truths and embrace deep originality. 

 

Five of the Eyes

A mind altering assault of energy and performance, Five Of The Eyes is Portland Maine's newest rock act to hit the scene. Blending influences of Prog, Funk, and Latin, this is a group that will make you funk dance yourself into a full blown explosion of head banging rock. How about you salsa over to the … NOPE CAUSE NOW THEY’RE ROCKING YOUR BODY INTO CONVULSIONS. Try to tear your eyes away from the body melting heat as vocalist Darrell Foster tears up the stage with dance moves that put James Brown in a cold sweat. Fear the shredding licks of a black tongued Giraffe under mind control by the tenacious guitars of Ned Rich and Tim Meehan. Believe the rhythmic symphony of Thomas Meehan and Peter Griffith BEATING THE DRUMS AND BASS STRAIGHT THROUGH THE FLOOR BOARDS INTO ANOTHER DIMENSION! Familiarize yourself with their brand new EP before they blow your MIND. http://www.fiveoftheeyes.com/


"...a self-titled, self-produced first studio effort that’s arrestingly dynamic, heavy yet danceable, and deceptively melodic. It draws on the progressive metal roots of many of the band members, but it brings in further Latin, funk and pop elements. It’s one of the strongest debuts from a new Maine band in the past two years, and it’s already helped the band garner some early buzz as a seriously awesome live act."
