Up first was Linfinity, a New York City rock group with a subtle touch of Eastern European indie pop. The first clip is of their closing song, and having invited a number of other musicians on stage for a spectacular crescendo, it didn’t feel proper pushing this video toward the bottom of the stack. If a bit more structure is preferred, be sure to have a look at the second clip before we move on to the next band.
Following Linfinity was Ha Ha Tonka, a southern-style folk rock group hailing from The Ozarks. After a nice set of original material, the boys from Missouri finished with an indulgent cover of Ram Jam’s “Black Betty,” whipping the crowd up into a foot stomping and hand clapping frenzy. A vigorous lead up to Murder by Death, Ha Ha Tonka knew how to keep the crowd going right up until the final note.
Check out the following mid-set clip below, and stay tuned for media from the evening’s headliners, Murder by Death. We’ll have a boatload of content for you to sink your teeth into, shortly.
