Audiodacity with The Labra Brothers

Saturday, May 15th

Anything is possible! This is the mission statement of the multi-genre sextet, and it is embedded in the heart of every song they write. From their humble beginnings as an open mic house cover band, Audiodacity has grown into a dynamic and musically-diverse ensemble with dozens of original songs, each imbued with the spirit of their camaraderie. Every member has varying levels of musical backgrounds, preferences, and influences; but these differences seamlessly combine into a sound that is truly original. Funk, rock, hip-hop, latin, jazz, reggae, R&B, blues and even dubstep – no genre is left unexplored.
Audiodacity’s unique style and their reputation for delivering unforgettable live performances have earned them a spot among Indiana’s top bands. They have won several city-wide and state-wide battle of the bands competitions, performed all throughout the Midwest, and have even shared the stage with nationally touring acts such as Ludacris, GROUPLOVE, and Here Come The Mummies.

Fresh Hops is back at The Trap! 1 of our all-time favorites make’s their outdoor debut.

Fresh Hops is a touring 5 piece Multi-Genre bending, Rock band from Northwest Indiana. The band formed in March 2008 as a musical improvisational outlet among friends. Now Fresh Hops has evolved into a captivating, high energy live act.

The group has seen numerous line ups and instrument inclusion which has led to an eclectic mix of sounds and atmospheres. As writers and performers Fresh Hops constantly blurs the lines between genres and style, often during the course of a single song.

That “anything goes” attitude has translated to a stage show that remains fresh and fun from show to show. The realization that jazz, classic soul, bluegrass, classical, metal and progressive jam rock can all shake hands and play nice has guided them to create remarkable tunes from an ever-expanding palette.

LITZ is coming back with their very impressive, eclectic style of Jam, Funk, Soul, Go-go and electronica wsg/ The Max Allen Band

LITZ brings together a wide array of musical influences ranging from funk, jam, go-go, soul, electronica and just about everywhere in between to amalgamate a new sound for the ears of the world. Their sound strides to sonically transport it’s listeners to another planet free of the stress, struggles, and tribulations of modern day life through the use of funky horn riffs, wah-wah keys, pounding bass, driving/progressive rhythms and melt your face guitar.

The Max Allen Band (Indianapolis) is an eclectic blend of musical genres with a sound much larger than that of just three players. A high energy hybrid of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dave Matthews, Phish, and early Police, MAB calls their style Rock Fusion. Honing their sound together for 5 years, this lineup features live loops, drum tracks, three part harmonies, captivating lyrics, a tight rhythm section, screaming guitar solos, and a group that not only loves to entertain a crowd but also enjoys creating music together… and it shows!

* Psymbionic
Gravitas Recordings
Austin, TX
[soundcloud url=”https://soundcloud.com/psymbionic”]

Cresting the modern wave of electronic producers, Psymbionic creates aural experiences that explore the range of multi-tempo Bass Music within an influential and dynamic culture. Non-traditional production allows him to manipulate experimental tones and otherworldly frequencies to saturate the listener. Crafting each song with a focus on sonic precision and building satisfying auditory transitions, Psymbionic confronts mixes that are limited to the scope of the build and release, avoiding an industry epidemic of drop-monotony that overpowers the flow of music.

In a live show context, John seeks to prove that there are more powerful influences in moving a crowd than simple tension, providing an interwoven dynamic that relies on the strength of his blend, rather than the sole force or familiarity of the apex. His manipulation of sound causes a palpable effect on everyone who hears it; Psymbionic’s penchant for creating cohesive and unique futurism offerings implores the audience to never assume what this artist has up his sleeve.

* Zebbler Encanti Experience

[soundcloud url=”https://soundcloud.com/zebblerencantiexperience”]

Zebbler Encanti Experience (aka “ZEE”) is an audio/visual collaboration between video artist Zebbler and electronic music producer Encanti, based out of Boston, USA and Valencia, Spain. The Experience is an immersive performance of mapped visuals on three custom winged projection screens, synchronized with heavy peak-hour psychedelic bass music, resulting in the creation of a fantasy world for audiences to lose themselves in.

ZEE have seen a considerable amount of road time in the last few years, serving as integral members of multiple tour teams. The architect behind the projection mapped projects for Shpongle and EOTO, and assisting with Infected Mushroom’s stage construction, Zebbler has toured the United States nonstop producing visual shows and performing as a VJ at hundreds of high profile events. In addition to ZEE performing as direct touring support for EOTO in venues throughout the country, and performing in Shpongle Live band during their first few shows in the United States, Encanti has carved out some time to teach electronic music production to graduate students in Valencia, Spain wing of Berklee College of Music.
