With bounding rhythms and infectious hooks, RA RA RIOT’s high-speed chamber pop is an addictive mix that combines “Arcade Fire’s orchestral reveries with Vampire Weekend’s pop sensibility.” (Rolling Stone) DELICATE STEVE is a wildly energetic and uplifting instrumental band led by the talented guitarist Steve Marion, who’s rumored to play 39 other instruments. Local duo BUKE AND GASS uses strange tools—a mutant bass/guitar hybrid, a modified baritone ukulele, effects pedals, and tricked out foot percussion—to cook up “a throttling yet joyful sound and a handcrafted sensibility.”
