8:30 - 5Head A 5Head show feels like an illegal party.  Not the kind where the cops come because it's too loud, but the kind that the government might try to ban because it's too much fun. With seemingly boundless energy, they dish out fiercely solid rhythm section grooves underneath traditionally catchy ska guitar stabs, all while sometimes sweet and sometimes red hot horn harmonies duke it out with front man Rob Reed's freight train inspired vocals. https://www.facebook.com/5HEADMUSIC     10:30 - The Younger Gang "This Rochester-based folk outfit brings together members of the Windsor Folk Family, RootsCollider, Blackened Blues, and Sparx and Yarms. The resulting amalgamation is a deeply affecting foray into what you could call neo-Americana. The band's unique approach to Old-timey Appalachian tunes is positively informed by, and infused with, the members' rock, blues, funk, and electronica pedigrees. It's a distinct breed of folk music that is, despite a healthy respect for its roots, absolutely modern." -David Yokel (City Magazine) https://www.facebook.com/youngergangmusic     12:00 - Primate Fiasco To a deaf person, they look like a New Orleans dixieland street band. To a blind person, they sound like a rave DJ mashing-up house beats with 60′s folk lyrics. To the police, it’s a busy day on the sidewalk. The Primate Fiasco uses instruments that are loud without electricity, giving them the opportunity to attack at any moment, in any location, with or without permission. No one is safe, not even an elevator or city bus. If The Primate Fiasco sees a dull moment somewhere, they will pop out of the nearest sewer drain or trash can to lead an irresistible dance party. On stage, the sound is different. This band has pioneered what is possible with mind­bending harmonies of Accordion and sax, funky pockets of a hyperactive Sousaphone player and banjo that thinks it’s a Fender Strat. Add lyrics that grab hold of even the most inattentive audience and beats that channel surf like a remote that’s been sat on. The music is always high energy and extremely imaginative. Most importantly, this is fun. People smile from the first beat to the last smoldering ash of what was previously a dance floor. Following a Grammy-nominated kids album, several conquered jam and electronica fests and stolen hearts at prestigious folk festivals, the Primate Fiasco audience demographic is as diverse as a New York City street. No one is safe from the Fiasco. You will smile. Primate Fiasco started as a roaming band at a major amusement park. After spending awhile exclusively performing on sidewalks, they headed indoors to try their luck on stage. That simple move allowed singing, which turned out to be the icing on the proverbial cake. Complicated icing, even, as their singer was a successful folk act in a former incarnation that pre-dated the army of brass. Those who listen to lyrics will often get into hour-long discussions about them. The resulting stage shows have since successfully turned music venues inside out, turned festival stages into circus tents and turned random paths or spots on festival grounds into stages. Throughout the Northeast and well-beyond (thanks to the power of radio) the Primate Fiasco experiment has evolved into the animated superhero persona that you see today— humorously drawn, but based on a true story— and that you will continue to see circulating throughout the music-loving club and festival community, via the highways, byways, subways… and other ways. http://www.primatefiasco.com/

Come share your music at what has been described by many as the hottest open mic night in town! (2012 CITY choice awards - Best Open Mic) Each performer is allowed two songs. Performers that don't use "songs" (comedians, poets, improvisational music, etc) are allowed up to 5-7 minutes for their set (we give them a five minute warning to let them know to wrap things up in the next 1-2 minutes). Sign up sheet goes out about an hour or so before open mic begins, and order is determined on a first come/first serve basis. First person to sign up gets an extra song! WE PROVIDE: The PA system (mics, speakers, etc), guitar cables, an old beat-up piano, a host/sound engineer. Sometimes there are musicians hanging around to play for you if you are a singer without an accompanist. WE DON'T PROVIDE: Guitars, amps, drums. Unless you are a singer or pianist, bring your own stuff! Our format is best suited to solo and smaller group performances with acoustic instruments (guitar, piano, etc). We do not recommended full bands, however we will allow it as long as the musicians are respectful of others' time and space (and play at a respectful volume for the audience). Drummers must bring in their drums before open mic begins (8:30) and set them up off to the side as to make for a speedy transition and not disrupt others' performances. Open mic begins around 8:30pm and goes until the night dies down (usually 11:00-11:30ish). Any other questions can be emailed to the show's host Willy O'Riley at willyoriley@lovincup.com.

Event Starts: 7:00pm
An elegant event that will start the 2015 Lovin' Cup Idol Season off right. This night will feature the musical stylings of Amanda Lee Peers, Kait Weston, Alphonso Williams, Champagne Brown, Joe Percy & more! A $25 ticket will gain you entry to the show, some of Lovin' Cup's best appetizers and a pint of beer! We hope you will join us for this great evening of food and fun to kick-off the Idol 2015 season in style. This is a fund-raising event for the 6th season of Lovin' Cup Idol. The hard work and dedication that go into making this event possible each year is unprecedented. With no cost to contestants they get to be boosted up by the Lovin' Cup community and showcase their talent in front of some of the most influential people in the Rochester music scene. Not only do they gain exposure but they also get to work with some of Rochester's finest musicians in order to raise their singing ability to heights they never thought they were capable of. Although there is no cost to contestants, there is still financial backing needed in order to continue an event of this caliber. We will be having a V.I.P. cocktail hour and Meet & Greet with the idol finalists from 6-8pm. There will also be a silent auction for the sponsorships for the upcoming season of Idol. These V.I.P. ticket holders will also have first opportunity seating for the show featuring music from our idol finalists starting at 8 pm. There will also be a separate ticket price for people who would just like to come and enjoy the show. If you come after 8:00 you can receive entry only into the show for $10.
