Picks for Musikfest Day 3, August 7th

mm

North Side

Mike Mains and the Branchesperforming at 5:30pm at Main Street
I feel like I always call bands “radio-ready pop rock” but there’s only so many ways you can say the same things.  These guys fall into that category, with their super catchy song “Stereo”.

Remember Jonesperforming at Plaza Tropical at 6pm
These guys play energetic, soulful music that will have the whole tent dancing.  Even though they have a lot of their own original material, we’re hoping to hear some of their Amy Winehouse covers that they’ve been touring with.

South Side

Highland Kitesperforming at 7pm at Lyrikplatz inside the Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas
Calling themselves anti-folk, and distinctly not indie rock, they, well, sound like indie rock.  Dreamy vocals over moody guitar riffs and harsh drums, it creates a fusion of music that would be a great soundtrack to a rainy day.

Fragile Mortals with special guest Darryl McDaniels (from Run DMC)performing at 9:30pm at Americaplatz (Levitt Pavilion)
These guys aren’t on the list because we like their music, they’re on the list because we can’t wait to see people’s reactions when a metal band comes out and melts the faces off the crowd at the usually tame Americaplatz.
