1:35 – 2:20 My Brightest Diamond – Here’s a rare name from Detroit that I haven’t heard of before. My Brightest Diamond is an experimental-pop band fronted by Shara Worden. Her last album All Things Unwind draws comparisons to bands like the National and Sufjan Stevens. A mix of the big, grand and indie music.
3:15 – 3:15 CHVRCHES – CHVRCHES has taken alternative radio and media by storm with their gorgeously textured synthpop. They hail from Scotland and putting the final touches to the debut full-length expected out this Fall. Also, just announced CHVRCHES is playing an after party at the Crofoot with doors at 10pm.
6:35 – 7:20 Solange – She doesn’t try to make a big deal about but Solange just happens to lil sis to Beyonce. View that however you want because she’s been blazing a trail of her own with her recent True EP. Her music is dance, R&B with a bit of 80’s nostalgia thrown in.
8:20 – 9:35 Sigar Ros – Along with The National, Sigar Ros are the other headliners of the fest and from all the comments I’ve heard of their majestic live performances I’ve got my expectations set to 11.
There you have it, all the stages have been covered and info has been dispersed. Tickets are still available for the experience other cities around the world are looking enviously upon us for having it all to ourselves. See you there, I’m that nerd with the camera.
