New to the event is the Breathe In after party in the Copper Conference Center. The official after party is FREE with your daytime festival admission, or just $10 at the door, which is located in the Copper Conference Center. Octopus Nebula and JWail will lead the dance party into the night with their signature blends of live electronica.

 

Octopus Nebula (or O-Neb) creates deep, multi-layered, psychedelic grooves, as well as making a conscious effort to avoid the standard musical forms that have been exploited by so many other bands. O-Neb embraces many genres of music, conveying the essence of all without being a literal interpretation of any. www.octopusnebulaband.com

 

JWail rises to the call of the sonic traffic controller, poised behind a palette of electronic devices with his Telecaster in hand. The dance floor becomes the launch pad where he fuses live instrumentation with organic electronica propelling mind, soul and booty into the upper stratosphere of sound. www.jwail.com

Cystic Fibrosis is a hereditary chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections, obstructs the pancreas, and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.
