The T Sisters are a genuine sister group based in the creative hub of Oakland, California. The group is made up of Erika (guitar, vocals), Rachel (guitar, banjo, vocals) and Chloe Tietjen (percussion, vocals). Distinguished by close harmonies, catchy melodies and potent lyricism, the T Sisters’ sound represents a continuum of music: from traditional to pop influences, moments of breathtaking a cappella to swells of energetic indie Americana. The sisters' contemporary yet classic sound invites a range of likenesses, from the Andrews Sisters and the Pointer Sisters to modern family bands like the Avett Brothers and First Aid Kit. With their soaring sibling harmonies, sassy stage presence, and inventive songwriting, these three sisters embody a fresh and soulful take on folk/Americana music.

Misner & Smith
Freight favorites Misner & Smith return with their full band for a night of soaring vocal harmonies, story-filled, poetic songwriting, and some of the most electrifying music on the scene today. The band’s sound harkens back to the bedrock of american rock & folk, paying tribute to strong influences like Simon & Garfunkel, The Band, and Buffalo Springfield, and at the same time they invent a new sound all their own. With two singers who could easily lead a band independently, Sam and Megan produce a sound that is one voice, seducing listeners with music that captures longing and belonging in the same moment. Joined by Josh Yenne (Mazzy Star, Greg Loiacono) on pedal steel and electric guitar and Joe Shotwell (Incendio, Eric Idle) on drums, the music remains rooted in vocal harmonies and lyrics, but with the additional instrumentation the songs take on an even deeper life, showcasing the wide and diverse spectrum of sound and genres that Misner & Smith have been exploring all along. Audiences who have seen Misner & Smith will tell you that experiencing one of their live shows will leave you feeling uplifted and inspired.
