Mineral
Mineral

Breakout

(Fri., 11:40am, Black stage)
Young band, led by growling frontman Kyle Artrip, ignites a caustic combo of early UK Oi and Eighties punk.

Dana Falconberry

(Fri., 1pm, Orange Stage)
Folk-pop songstress who paints pastoral imagery with a tiny voice.

Mineral

(Fri., 3:10pm, Orange Stage)
Vastly influential guitar band that laid groundwork for emo before disbanding in 1997.

Communion

(Sat., 11:30am, Black stage)
Psychedelic slow-core drone trio built on the stonemason slamming of former Roller drummer Jeremy Jenkins.

The Sour Notes

(Sat., 11:30am, Orange Stage)
Genteel psych led by guitarist Jared Boulanger, who sings optimistic bedroom poetry over buoyant effects and synths.

Zorch

(Sat., 12:10pm, Blue Stage)
Hyperactive sound waves of synth-and-drum euphoria.

The Digital Wild

(Sun., 11:30am, Blue Stage)
Laid-back trip-rock outfit defying all logic by successfully combining indie-folk, R&B vocals, and rapping.

Good Field

(Sun., 11:30am, Orange Stage)
Rich and delicate light rock with plentiful guitar reverb and mellow vox from former Brazos bassist Paul Price.

Crooked Bangs

(Sun., 11:55am, Black stage)
Blood-curdling darkwave punk in French with an underlying evil surf element.

Scott H. Biram

(Sun., 5:15pm, Yellow Stage)
Whiskey-breathed gospel, metal, and country one-man band with a motor mouth and exceptional guitar chops.
