Poni Hoax is a five man army of «jeunes gens modernes», bookworm musicians and extremely talented composers signed to ace Parisian imprint Tigersushi. Their lead vocalist, Nicolas Ker tackles an ambitious and unique style that walks the thin line between a decadent Morrissey or an elegiac Jim Morrisson.
Violens are a New York-via-Miami four-piece formed in the fall of 2007 featuring members Iddo Arad (synths/vocals), Ben Brantley (bass), Jorge Elbrecht (lead vocals/guitar) and Kris King (drums). Their music imagines a place where The Zombies & The Byrds meet Wire & The Violent Femmes, and Crass meets Angelo Badalamenti & Prefab Sprout. We don't like to say this, but this time we are fully justified. These guys are going to blow up, so this is a rare chance to catch them in an intimate venue.
Last but not least, we have Wolf Gang, whose song Lions in Cages has been on repeat at Cargo HQ for a while.
Djs in support are Stef from the Klaxons with a late night set and Wonky Pop resident Goldierocks.
