You may recognize Pinegrove from their 2016 album Cardinal, which showed up on “Best Albums of the Year” lists for plenty of music publications. The emo-folk band from New Jersey swept up fans with its alt-country twang and homestyle lyrics. The stage was way too small for the crowd; the audience piled out into the walkway and trees behind the Ponce de Leon stage, and those brave enough to stand in the crowd were crammed elbow to elbow. It was clear that Pinegrove has a massive fan base. The audience sang along to every word of every song, including “Angelina,” which was released prior to Cardinal on a 2015 compilation tape called Everything So Far. Lead singer Evan Hall was charismatic, commanded the performance and made the Pinegrove set one of the most enjoyable of Shaky Knees. [Maria Lewczyk]

If there's been one band on seemingly everyone's lips lately, it's Nihilist Cheerleader. The young punk four-piece has earned a loyal local fanbase thanks to a scrappy, melodic sound, lyrics that alternate seamlessly between playful and political, and a beyond-their-years comprehension of musical tension and release.
