All right, here we go. 5 days of music fun is fast approaching with tons of shows to check out. Actually, “an overwhelming amount” is a more fitting term, as it gets a little hard to grasp all that is being offered, and what you should actually go out and see. So we’ve compiled a list of what we think are absolute must for the festival.
Again, you can grab a festival pass (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! This festival is allll about running around, experiencing and discovering many artists), or purchase individual tix.

MANNERS + Bebe Buckskin + Thanya Iyer + I Shot Samo, Cagibi, 8:45PM – One heck of a transition from Thanya Iyer (light pop) to Manners (heavy), with I Shot Samo (Psychidelic rock) and Bebe Bucksin (60s rock) somewhere in the middle.
Brown + DJ VNCE (Dead Obies), Quaie des Brumes, 10:00PM. Brown baby is still in our heads. Probably because we’ve been listening to that album on repeat all summer.
September 23rd 2016

Slow Down Molasses + Ol’ Savannah + Maybe Greys + Forest Frontier + Common Holly, Quai des Brumes, 9:00pm –There’s something very catchy about Slow Down Molasses, mixing in upbeat pop with soft, whispery vocals.
