DON’T MISS THIS: Best Bets for MPMF Saturday
MPMF finishes the weekend out with a big bang, whipping out some of the bigger names and buzz bands in the festival.
Josiah Wolf and Phantogram
Know Theater at 10:30PM/11:30PM
Josiah Wolf might not be on the mainstream radar yet, but he certainly is on the mind of many locals for his numerous instruments – all self played. Looking to Wolf to use his traditional training at UC to come in handy as he figures out how to use everything including the kitchen sink in a single show.
Phantogram is one of the hotter names going into MPMF that can’t be missed as they close out the Know Theater. The duo might have been friends forever, but their dream pop noise (reminiscent of Portishead and Massive Attack) sounds like they’ve been crafting tunes for much much longer.
The Tony Castles and Caravan of Thieves
Grammers at 7:30PM/8:30PM
Looking for something a bit off the beaten path? Don’t look any further than The Tony Castles. While the closest defining term for the duo might be a bit of a hallucinogenic-pop-reggae-thing, the experience will likely be life changing.
Caravan of Thieves keep the unique spirit with their vaudeville, traveling set of thieves that feels straight out of the circus. Fans of Skybox will find themselves at home with the offbeat crowd.
Inner Peace Center at 11:15PM
If you’re looking for something to calm your soul (or perhaps you’re nurturing an MPMF hangover!), head to the Inner Peace Center for music that will make you feel whole again. Unwed Sailor doesn’t need lyrics to make you feel moved by their music, but instead, you’ll find that their lush instrumentation is more than enough.
