The four acts — The Veldt, Moon Hootch, The New Mastersounds and JD McPherson — spotlighted in this edition represent very different styles of music.
British-based quartet The New Mastersounds recently released a split single with New York City-based funksters Turkuaz. Guitarist Eddie Roberts says that the shared tour is “a logical thing to do; musically, it’s such a great fit. There’s a certain amount of crossover with our audience.”
Two local sensations — a British group that has been more or less adopted-as-local, and a much-admired and unusual high-concept act — are what’s on tap in this edition.
