  Alix Brown   If you spend any time in Manhattan’s Lower East Side you’ve most likely heard  Alix Brown  slinging the best punk and rock ‘n’ roll music in town. With the stunning looks of a 60’s dream girl (think Nico meets Brigitte Bardot) and a wardrobe to turn the head of any avid vintage collector, Alix’s overall vibe is nostalgic and re ective of the music she plays. Originally from Atlanta, Alix grew up working in record shops and eventually moved to NYC where she played bass in the band Golden Triangle. Aside from music, Alix has made her mark on the fashion world as a stylist and muse. She did visuals and merchandising for What Goes Around Comes Around, and has been eye candy for brands like  Sugar High Lovestoned ,  Samantha Pleet , and  Gant Rugger .

  Lindsey Jack   Lindsey Caldwell, aka  Lindsey Jack , has an intergenre naturalism, effortlessly blending styles and eras to create a ow of songs that is beholden not strictly to one area of the musical spectrum, but that bind smartly by mood and una rontable goodness. Her long running Negroclash night at APT was the foundation for this logical mix, emerging in the sad wake of electroclash and coming to life alongside early residencies of Metro Area and James Murphy. “The night evolved into a celebration of the African-American contribution to electronic music,” informs Lindsey. She can be found playing at Von Kellner and subMercer, and over the years has played most of NYC’s hottest underground spots.
