Sun Parade - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Sun Parade
Sun Parade's personal obsessions and projects range from British folk ballads to Motown; collectively their music is most influenced by the mutineers’ pantheon — The Clash, Beastie Boys, Dr. Dog, Nirvana, The Beatles. Sun Parade has supported Lake Street Dive, Dr. Dog, Born Ruffians, and And The Kids. National Public Radio picked “Heart’s Out” — the title track of the band’s previous EP — for Songs We Love, and wrote that Sun Parade is “crafting the kinds of traditional guitar-pop songs that people might still be singing 50 years down the road.”

“'Shuggy Mtn Breakdown' is a kaleidoscopic vision quest through idyllic and intrinsic melodies that feels like the final breaths of warm summer air.” - Joel Funk, Substream Magazine

“An instant classic. Sun Parade delivers a rare psychedelic rock record that doesn’t try to be strange for the sake of strangeness, but is above all about serving the music first.” - Chris Goudreau, The Advocate

“A hook line and sinker winner of ragged mischief and melody. Like Dr. Dog, Delta Spirit and Islands, Sun Parade offers a candid approach to music that makes them endearing.” - Glide Magazine

“The Sun Parade’s Hearts Out EP feels like a care-free walk through the woods of Western Mass. The light hearted single “Hearts Out” showcases the vocal prowess of lead singer Chris Jennings, with a smooth and bright tone and surprisingly rich falsetto.”
- The Deli

Ritual Talk - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Ritual Talk
One of the first questions Ritual Talk gets is usually one of the hardest questions to answer: what do you sound like? In a world that favors boxes and binaries, they are dubbed “psychedelic indie rock”. And there are certainly moments in the music that fit that bill to a tee, capturing both the headiness and the fervor of the genre. However, like a cold ice cream cone on a warm day, those moments don’t last forever. People walk away hearing influences from Grizzly Bear to Marvin Gaye to CSN&Y to Dirty Projectors, but ultimately, the Brooklyn outfit's lush instrumentation and exploratory vocal arrangements tinge each song with an unmistakable color, on and off the stage.
