Future Islands

Future Islands take all of the best things about New Order, and then add one of the most unique vocalists around. Their songs are the perfect kind of catchy, with a vital heart at the core.

Busdriver

There’s few artists in hip hop performing at the level Busdriver is at. He’s witty, socially-conscious, hyper-literate, adventurous, and can sling rhymes faster than just about anyone. He was amazing at Meow Wolf a year ago. Expect even better when he shares the stage with his pals Future Islands.

Zola Jesus

Zola Jesus drops her new record Okovi on September 8th, and judging from the singles, it may be her best to date. The goth chanteuse has a big voice that soars through an exhilarating haunted terrain.

John Wiese

Experimental composer John Wiese will set the foundation for the night. His experimental noise compositions work with tension and texture with a considerable debt to avant jazz master such as John Zorn and Anthony Braxton


Fleet Foxes • Beach House

Fleet Foxes

It took a while but Fleet Foxes made their triumphant followup to Helplessness Blues this year, picking up right where that record left off. The band’s progressive folk is masterfully played with incredible intricacy, slowly unveiling songs that are beautiful, potent and unpredictable.

Beach House

It only took two records for Beach House to master dream pop and establish one of the great acts of the sub-genre. And since then, they’ve continued to perfect their sound, never moving too far from the formula that has made them so successful.

Wilco

One of the finest bands the world has seen, Wilco strikes a phenomenal balance between tried & true and experimental. With an epic discography and a band with an exceptional range, Wilco’s live performances often take their songs to new places.


!!! • Algiers

!!!

It’s hard to image !!! has been around for two decades. It seems like just yesterday that the band was setting off the dance-rock movement, while simultaneously confusing loads of listeners who had no idea how to pronounce their name. This set will be a party.

Algiers

With all of the big shows happening this month, it may be easy to overlook this one, but Algiers will certainly be one of the absolute can’t miss performances of the year out here. The band’s latest record, The Underside of Power, is a powerful collection of gospel infused post-punk. It’s a biting commentary on the current state of the country, and very few bands are performing with intensity that Algiers is bringing.
