Garcia Peoples

If the band name Garcia Peoples isn't an obvious enough nod to their inspiration, dig into the warm vocal harmonies and spellbinding double guitar jams that await. These young bucks love The Grateful Dead. But this is no mere tribute band, which becomes clear in the way they take the golden sounds of yore and drag them into the future, offering a commendable mix of '60s west coast psych, acid folk, and modern indie rock.

Little People

Little People (Laurent Clerc) has toured with the likes of Odesza and produces late night party jams in the form of glitchy, expansive down-tempo electronic music featuring blasts of cut-up vocal tracks, sweeping string arrangements, and huge beats. Frameworks (Matt Brewer) has made a big splash in the electronic festival circuit, moving bodies and minds with his deeply personal and intimate take on organic house and the chiller side of hip hop. With a killer full live band, Frameworks brings his warm compositions to life with violin, pulsing bass, and haunting vocals.
