In one of their songs a gentle xylophone plays over delicate vocals and others invoke samples of the President’s voice. In songs that span the gamut from whimsical baroque pop to new indie sound, these guys have quite a diverse sound.

This retro-sounding Brazilian band at times sounds like they could be inspired by 50s rock and at others sound like cousins of The Beatles.

This is your last chance to see MarchFourth Marching band this year.  A favorite of ours, these guys wowed us with their first performance at Musikfest back in 2011 and we’re glad to see them continuously booked.  The last performance we caught by them seemed a little lacking in the theatrics we came to expect from them, but based on videos we’ve seen of last night’s performance, it looks like they’re back to their old (and impressive) tricks again.  Like a marching band and Burning Man had a baby, these guys are an act you don’t want to miss.

If you only see one show at Musikfest, make this it.  This band is immensely fun.  They are filthy (for instance, lyrics like “take the skin boat to tuna town” and “wearing out the sideways frown”).    They sing a song called Libido Knievel.  They have a pelvic thrust-driven instrument called the cow belt.  They are amazing, and you’re an idiot if you miss this.
