SAO welcomes back Canadian indie-folk group Great Lake Swimmers. Their latest album "A Forest of Arms" has been described as "lush, melodic, and fulfilling; each of the set's ten songs are a miniature epic that hit the ear differently with each listen.

Supporting GLS will be Liance, the project of Calvin senior James Li. His music contains hints of Sufjan Stevens and Sun Kil Moon, sung in a voice eerily reminiscent of Cut Copy's Dan Whitford. The album is uncommonly vulnerable with songs pushing into new territory sonically and poignant, autobiographical lyrics.
