    ARCHNEMESIS The musical brainchild of Curt Heiny (Telepath) and Justin Aubuchon (MO Theory). Formed as the musical brainchild of Curt Heiny and Justin Aubuchon (Telepath, MO Theory), Archnemesis creates its distinctive sound by combining original music with samples ranging from early 20’s blues and jazz to modern hip-hop and soul. With their first EP "Diamonds and Glass" and their debut full length album "People's Radio" available now for free download at www.archnemesismusic.com, Archnemesis continues to turn heads at festivals and club shows while elevating the standard for modern electronic music. The new EP "Diamonds and Glass" is available now for FREE download at archnemesismusic.com. Website: www.archnemesismusic.com check out a video: http://youtu.be/WizgHApFE78 PAPER TIGER Paper Tiger is the meeting of two alter-egos who relish in the space where inhibitions die and art is made. They are inspired by sounds, instruments, vinyl records and ideas that otherwise may never connect. Beautiful Asheville NC, is their home. They love the city, they love nature, they draw inspiration from both. They recycle. This is a short version of their story. In the beginning, there was a jazz singer who met a DJ/producer. They shared a mutual love of Radiohead and collaborated on their own cover version of “Fake Plastic Trees”. Although both MINGLE (one half of a duo) and RubySlippers (one third of a trio) were working with other projects, they felt a spark in their new creation and began to write and record their own material. Paper Tiger has hit a stride in creating original lounge/trip hop, and are quickly establishing themselves as a duo in the Asheville music scene. They’ve opened for the likes of King Britt, NOMO, Bonobo, Mark Farina, and Brooklyn electronic musician Eliot Lipp. They were featured in POPAsheville 2008 & 2009 as well as LAAFF (the Lexington Avenue Arts and Fun Festival) 2008 &2010 , Bele Chere, and showcased at the MOOG Foundation CD Release party at the Orange Peel. The duo’s song Folded Laundry is featured on Lunch Video Magazine #16. In 2008, RubySlippers & MINGLE won the electronic category in the Earth Day Asheville Contest. They played the first Asheville MoogFest this past Halloween. website: www.papertigermusic.com check out a video: http://youtu.be/7jvE-klly9A MEDISIN From the magical mountains of Asheville,NC.

    Paper Tiger with Ben Mason of Neb.cinema on live visuals, 9:00 pm. Bonobo DJ set follows. Over the last couple of years, Bonobo has become one of the premier artists on the Ninja Tune imprint and certainly one of the most listened to, with over 16 million plays recorded on LastFM. His combination of superb live shows and studio wizardry means that he is now perfectly placed to push on into a yet bigger league. With “Black Sands,” Bonobo has made the record to achieve it. Simon Green was born and grew up in rural Hampshire, escaping to Brighton aged eighteen. There he fell into the jazz/hip hop/funk/soul scene centred around Rob Luis and nights like phonic:hoop. An accomplished musician as a teenager, he began producing his own tracks, pushing at the template established in the sweaty little venues studding the Lanes.
