Guyville Linktree [] | Facebook [] | Instagram []

Guyville is a Los Angeles-based duo comprised of its founding members, Kat Hamilton and Emily Hulslander. The pair craft songs that combine elements of 90s rock, pop, and country. As their name suggests, the legacy of Liz Phair brought these two powerful women together in songwriting bliss. The duo strikes the perfect chord with Hulslander’sintelligent pop approach and Hamilton’s confessional lyricism. The duo has released two singles to critical acclaim, "Nothing" and "Should Have Never Dated". Guyville has been featured in Earmilk, Rolling StoneIndia, and on many notable playlists. This is a tour you do not want to miss. Pillow Princess Annalise Curtin Website [] | Facebook [] | Twitter []

It took Annalise Curtin three cities and a lot of soul-searching throughout her 20s to realize her heart was right back in Philadelphia, where her musical life first took root with her first songs penned while she was still in high school. Shortly after recording her debut album - 2013’s “Battle Against Me” - she packed up her life and headed to Cleveland at age 21, and kept the motor running en route to Milwaukee, then to Seattle, where she honed her particular brand of introspective acoustic folk(with shades of Alanis Morrisette, Ingrid Michaelson, and Regina Spektor) in the loudest of rock and roll dive bars. The voice coming out of her diminutive4’8” frame was too imposing for coffee house crowds, who prefer their latte sweet and their music tucked in the background. Returning to Philly in 2018, Curtin began expanding her musical palette, pushing her boundaries into settings commensurate with her vocal range. It’s an exciting new vibe for Annalise Curtin as she is ready to see what new musical mischief her 30s will bring.

BRAINFEST, online, Facebook Live


ABOUT: BRAINFEST is an event dedicated to raising funds and awareness for the advancement in the understanding and treatment of brain tumors. The event is held annually in the Philadelphia area. It has featured educational games, stories, raffles, prizes, and live music from some of the area's most talented local musicians and members of the brain tumor community of friends, families, and survivors. Due to the ongoing pandemic and concerns surrounding health and safety measures, we’ve decided it would be in the best interest of the community to stay virtual this year. So this year’s BrainFest will be held virtually May 28th on FB Live in this event page & will feature live music throughout the day. We understand times are tough, so BRAINFEST aims to raise as much as we can to help the ABTA to further its mission and support the nearly 700,000 people in the United States living with a brain tumor. Because there are more than 120 types of brain tumor, there is no one answer to the brain tumor challenge. In pursuit of answers, the American Brain Tumor Association has funded more than $26 million in research since 1976. Stay tuned for coming details on performers and more! Questions? Please contact, or visit BRAINFEST online ( ABOUT THE AMERICAN BRAIN TUMOR ASSOCIATION Founded in 1973, the American Brain Tumor Association was first and is now, the only national organization committed to funding brain tumor research and providing information and education on all tumor types and all age groups.
