One of the first bands to start the event over at the Budweiser stage was Distoria, a Queens-based group exploding with the catchy sounds of melodic pop rock. Soon after the group began performing, the sun finally broke through the gloomy overcast and engulfed the positive atmosphere surrounding the non-profit festival.

Pianist and front woman, Helena Martin, whom grew up in Connecticut, shared her passion for music and the event. "I’ve been involved in B.O.M.B. festivals for three years now. I’ve played every year and I’ve been the local talent coordinator for two years," told Ms. Martin, "The reason I love playing at B.O.M.B. Fest is because it gives an opportunity for local artists like myself to play on a huge stage, to rub shoulders with some really big acts, and just kind of casually. Not only are we invited to play here, we’re welcome to play here and we’re treated equally. In addition to that, B.O.M.B. Fest also donates its profits to places that either promote healing or education through music. It’s really a win-win for everyone."

"Another intricately sculpted set of dark indie-pop that's reminiscent at times of Spoon, a consistently well-crafted song featuring adventurous arrangements with a variety of unusual textures, hypnotic rhythms, smooth vocals and subtly addictive melodies."

"Inspired by energetic and musically complex bands such as Muse and Mute Math, Distoria rocked with its rhythmic, piano-driven pop rock sound."
