Kylesa will headline. Other confirmed acts include Darkentries (Columbia, SC), Jagged Vision (Stavanger, Norway), Sierra (Kitchener, Ontario). This is going to be a hot ticket, for sure. Kylesa routinely packs much bigger rooms than The Jinx — and those bigger venues aren’t in the band’s hometown!

Soft Science launched just last night (1/9) with a great show and party at Hang Fire.
