Wye Oak, led by Andy Stack and Jenn Wasner, are a long-running indie rock group originally from Balitmore, Maryland. Because of the intimate setting of the PledgeHouse day stage — the Blackheart holds fewer than 100 people — the band ended up reimagining the expansive songs for an unique, quieter experience.

Wye Oak's newest album, The Louder I Call, the Faster It Runs, is available April 6, 2018 on Merge Records.

Songs performed
