80’s INVASION @ 9pm

80’s INVASION takes the music of the ’80s very seriously. This is the music we listened to on our original Sony Walkmen, the bands whose names we stenciled on our pee-chees, jeans, Nikes, and in some cases, all over town. When MTV first came around, these were the bands whose videos we watched all night at our friends’ houses, and the first concerts we went to. Some of our most memorable experiences (ahem) occurred listening to these songs. This music matters and we care enough about it to do it right.

THE COVERS @ 9pm

Your favorite doorman and Rock guitarist TROY HILL puts together an amazing show of rock and dance hits from the 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s. Come party with and get your dance on with THE COVERS! (Formerly BAM) as they take over The Swiss.

THE HIPSTERS @ 9pm

The Hipsters: Nothing but solid ground pounding, hip grinding, ass shaking rock and roll provide the base for this band. Years of history between the foursome has given them perspective on all types of music….but a fresh attack on music, as well as a true enjoyment of working the crowd keeps the atmosphere alive and electric.

Solid dance rock that you know and love…High energy atmosphere that you want to be a part of…its hot rock for cool people, and you need to get some.
