Arrived in time to catch Boombaptist. The name makes some sense of this gruesome duo, one half plays the hype-man while another lays down the bass. They come from texas and are prepared to take the left coast by sword.
Natasha Kmeto is a beat-maker and vocalist heralding from Portland, Oregon, her sound produced from a bewitching brew of computer clicks and tribal influences. When she sings (and boy can she) the personal and enchanting addition of live vocals lathers up her wet and crunchy sound with a coat pure flavor, tasting great until it is drowned out by a symphony of tribal drum clicks. Some well timed head-banging got the crowd involved with some of the bigger sounding beats of the evening.
FREE THE ROBOTS is the stage name of Chris Alfaro. This incendary fellow took to the stage, releasing chunky lethargy with a baptismal of bass on top. Harmonies of psych jazz blend with the digital and analog to create flowing electronic jazz compositions. Running bass, breakbeats, and free-form piano titillate the ear before the crunchy electronics really hit.
