The artist behind the name Bad Veins is Benjamin Davis, who takes the stage with a 1973 Pioneer reel-to-reel recorder lovingly named Irene. The man-and-machine pair has also been joined by other members, including co-founder Sebastien Schultz and later Jake Bonta. Since forming in 2006, Bad Veins has toured with some of the biggest indie rockers of modern music, including Two Door Cinema Club, Walk the Moon, Frightened Rabbit and St. Lucia. Back in the Queen City, Bad Veins guarantees an uplifting and unforgettable experience. Lose yourself singing along to "Don’t run," "Gold and warm," and "Crosseyed."
Joining Bad Veins on the Woodward stage is Cincinnati electronic pop newcomer Moonbeau. After releasing it's first single, Moonbeau and it's '80s pop-inspired dance jams took off; the duo opened for Com Truise, played an exclusive Sofar Sounds session, and had fans coming back for more at Midpoint Music Festival. The duo behind Moonbeau are fiances Christian Gough of The Yugos and Claire Muenchen, who are also backed up by drummer Alex Murphy-White. The Best Electronic Act of the 2017 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards will have you dancing to their singles "Are We In Love Yet?" and "In Your Lifetime."
