PledgeHouse is turning it to 11 with Wednesday's lineup, which ranges from face-melting rock to heart-stopping songcraft.

L.A.'s Warbly Jets will make 12:30 p.m. (Austin time) feel like 12:30 a.m. with their life-affirming blasts of power pop, bringing the Paisley Underground back to life for the 21st century. Later in the afternoon, we'll welcome kindred spirits Naked Giants, a Seattle trio who aren't afraid to have a little fun with grunge.

Marlon Williams, a New Zealand singer-songwriter, channels the pathos and drama of evocative voices like Roy Orbison and Chris Isaak. Get ready for chills, and then shake them off with a set by Mt. Joy, who blend the legendary soul sound of their native Philadelphia with a Southern-fried flavor.

Last up today is Natalie Prass, whose 2015 self-titled debut earned swoons from tastemakers around the world. Its rich soundcraft fueled intense anticipation for her forthcoming follow-up The Future and the Past.
