PVDLoop All-Stars – Small Tech, Big Sound! @ AS220 Main Stage
Sep 30 @ 8:00 pm – Oct 1 @ 1:00 am
The PVDLoop Fest has been under the radar since the Plague came. Since we’re starting to come back, bit by bit, we’re playing around with new ideas, until we can really get back to our big business. Local PVDLoop All-Star Willie Oteri suggested trying something new! How about if we see what happens with a little less tech? How about 2 pedals?! How about 1?!! How about if we add some video?!!!
We’ve gathered some of our PVDLoop All-Stars, and a few new faces to try it out and see what happens!
The Players so far and more to come!
See the Discussion section (tab) for bios and more info on the artists.

Charismatic artist Emma Rhodes and sardonic loner Katherine Hudson are two diametrically opposed strangers with just two things in common: 1, they’ve both decided to commit suicide and 2, due to the circumstances of their method, they’re forced to spend their last 12 hours in each other’s company. As the young women begin to talk about their pasts, we meet the key figures in their lives and we learn about what brought them to this point. Permanent Solutions is a play about mental health, family, human connection, and both the powers and limitations of love.
Come see the show that responders from its one-night debut in April and from its July run at FringePVD have described as “a bright light on the darkness of the human mind” that makes for “a night of theatre not to be missed.”

Ed Schrader’s Music Beat @ AS220 Main Stage
Oct 7 @ 8:00 pm – 11:30 pm
Ed Schrader's Music Beat @ AS220 Main Stage
With a single EP as an a cappella screamer-crooner to his name, Ed Schrader brought on bassist Devlin Rice to form the two-piece Ed Schrader’s Music Beat after the two met on the legendary 2008 Baltimore Round Robin tour. Rice’s presence instantly brought aesthetic focus to Schrader’s disparate musical tendencies. The primal screams were made driving and heavy and the visionary chants became post-new wave mood pieces. The evolution is unmissable on their first two records as a duo, Jazz Mind (2012) and Party Jail (2014).
On the Dan Deacon-produced Riddles (2018), the band exploded their sonic palette with the addition of synthesizers, player piano and a dedicated percussionist bringing to life a tracklist produced and co-written by Dan Deacon. Upon its release, the record garnered widespread acclaim. NPR called it an “odd and captivating piece of work.” Pitchfork called it “a defining point in their career.” Rolling Stone praised it as “a noise-punk album that bursts with psychedelic twists.” SPIN called it “a memorable and eclectic record … one that can bleed and weep and still make you want to get up and scream.
Since 2010, the duo has mounted several tours across the U.S. and Europe both as a headliner and in support of major acts Beach House, Future Islands and Dan Deacon. They’ve shared bills with No Age, Lightning Bolt, Matmos and Ceremony.
Their new record — the eerie, introspective Nightclub Daydreaming — is due out March 25 from Carpark Records..
