19:00 Garmarna (Sweden)
Adding modern touches to traditionally based Swedish folk music has made Garmarna one of top groups of the Scandinavian Folk resurgence of the '90s. Their debut album, 1994's Vittrad, was nominated for a Swedish Grammy while their second album, 1996's Guds Speleman, received the Swedish Grammy award "Album of the Year." Released in the United States, the album placed high on the CMJ New Music chart. In late 1996, Guds Speleman reached the fifth posotion on a Top 25 list compiled by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Societe-Radio Canada. Their third effort, Vedergällningen (Vengeance), released in March 1999 reached number eight on the European world music chart. Formed in 1990, Garmarna was inspired by Olov Johansson's musical score for a production of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Initially a trio featuring Gotte Ringqvist, Stefan Brisland-Ferner, and Rickard Westman, the group quickly built a solid local reputation. Soon after releasing an EP in 1993, Garmana began touring throughout Sweden. The following year, the band caught the ear of Drew Miller, bassist of Minneapolis-based band Boiled in Lead and the owner of an independant label, Omnium. Impressed by what he heard, Miller signed Garmarna for North American distribution. Their debut album, Vittrad, released in Sweden in April 1994, was reissued as Crumbling Away. Garmarna performed their debut North American tour in March 1995. In Autumn 1996, Garmarna received the prestigious jury's prize, the Iron Gustav Award, for their performance at the Malzhaus Festival in Germany. During a tour in 1998, the group performed a collection of songs based on the medieval work of Hildegard von Bingen. Emma Hardelin performed songs by Benny Andersson of ABBA during a show that was broadcast throughout the world on New Year's Eve 1999. Vengeance was issued that same year. A self-titled release also appeared two years later.

20:00 Static-X (USA)
Static X will be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their debut album this year with a new album, Project Regeneration, featuring Wayne Static vocals salvaged from recording sessions and backing tracks. Fans will recall that Wayne tragically passed away in 2014. The band will embark on a tour featuring a mysterious singer and rhythm guitarist who will wear a Wayne Static mask for the tour. Many have speculated on the identity of the singer, known to the world as Xer0. Static-X was formed in 1994 from the ashes of Wayne Static and Ken Jay's former band, Deep Blue Dream. After searching for members in Chicago,United States, Static and Jay decided to go to Los Angeles to continue their search. There they met Tony Campos from the Mexican death metal band Asesino, and Koichi Fukuda, completing the band's original line-up. Static-X signed with Warner Brothers Records in early 1998. Static-X released six studio album before going on on hiatus in 2010. Eight years later, Campos, along with Fukuda and Jay, announce the band comback.
