Gary Wilson is an internationally-renowned composer, recording artist, and performer of experimental music. As a teenager, Wilson studied composition privately with John Cage, and since his 1977 self-released classic You Think You Really Know Me, he has spent a lifetime building a fervent underground audience around the world. Esteemed artists Beck, Questlove, Earl Sweatshirt, Tyler the Creator, Foxygen, Dam Funk, Black Lips, and Ariel Pink have all cited Gary Wilson as a source of inspiration.



In the summer of 2013, the Metropolitan Museum of Art included Gary in the exhibition PUNK: Chaos to Couture, and in recent years the DIY home recording legend has graced the pages of The New York Times, The New Yorker, and Record Collector Magazine. Wilson has performed on national TV on both The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live!



Gary Wilson continues to diligently compose, record, and release new music, including 2017’s Let’s Go to Outer Space on Cleopatra Records. His new album, The King of Endicott, is set for release in 2018.

2000Blue
2000BLUE is a Detroit sibling duo band made up of Natty G and Cam G. They are bandmates, roommates, best friends, and often enemies. Their parents got divorced in 2007 and the siblings had only seldom contact with eachother up until recently when they decided to share an apartment in Hamtramck. They soon discovered that they had separately developed an extremely similar taste in music and both had an urge to write and perform. So, in an attempt to express their joy & rage (and save their relationship) they've been playing as 2000BLUE since May the 4th, 2017 with a sound that could be described as #minimal #lofi #punk #rocknroll #pop #noise #whatever. It's been a wiiiiild ride and they are so happy and grateful to be able to play shows and spend time with new and old friends while getting the chance to grow as musicians and family
