  • Bridging the gap between 4 different eras and forming a cohesive sonic bond, Conor Cutz & Rouge bring you a night of the best music from times past. From the 1970s to the early 2000s, expect to hear the best of everything from James Brown to Justice, M.J. to Biggie - tracks that defined generations, seamlessly mashed up and reworked by the infamous duo.

    Quatro is a unique experience in that it combines the audio with the visual. The show truly kicks off around midnight when a renowned speed artist, Anthony Haley, takes the stage and begins performing his craft. Gaining inspiration from the crowd, music and overall feel of the night, Haley will take you on a visual quest creating piece after piece LIVE on stage.

    This is Quatro.

  • Animal Collective are a group of four best friends who grew up playing and recording music together in Baltimore County Maryland.

    Why Animal?

    Because it's the only word we could think of that made any remote connection to what we thought our sound was, and, of course, we love our fellow animals very much.

    Why Collective?

    Because we have always wanted to be the ones who define what and who AC are. Two people? Four people? Why not?

    Don't be surprised if you come to see us and it's not what you thought it would be, and try not to get too upset. AC continues to make music after seven years, six studio records and one live record, that combines a love of sonic free form electronic horror gospel hip hop soul pop madness and brings it all together into something that is (hopefully) at times totally pleasing and at others completely scary and confusing but most importantly is refreshing in this crazy, crazy world.
