Jonny Sonic

Step right up, kids! Jonny Sonic presents a 13-ring circus of furiously joyous noise. Midwest funk meets Left Coast showmanship as a nine-piece horn section piles atop gigantic bass, contortionist keyboards, and freaky beats of another order entirely. Welcome to The Grit...

From the opening gusts of dueling sub-bass tubas (Upgrade) to the last gasping strains of one of the year's most gorgeous break-up songs (The Shift), these tunes swallow swords, spit fire, and play out a high-stakes drama between a difficult world and a persona who sees clearly, feels deeply, loves fiercely, screams dearly, and pulls no lyrical punches.

Whether decrying addiction (Sickline) and the ephemerality of everything we love (Rugout) or denouncing rape (GenNext) and retail therapy (Buy Everything), Jonny Sonic emcees the proceedings like an unstoppable barker. Alternate acts examine the darkness of depression (Episode), the blunt benefits of a change of psyche (ReVision), and the weird wisdom of one magical Burning Man (Phantasm).


Ten Man Brass Band

The Ten Man Brass Band has been filling the streets and festivals of Seattle with powerful all acoustic brass music since 2011. In the tradition of the Youngblood Brass Band, this young and energetic group of musicians mix the genres of New Orleans, jazz, pop, funk, Latin, Balkan, and electronica. They have become a regular feature at the Northwest Folklife Festival, Capitol Hill Block Party, and HONK! Fest West. They have toured Northern California and Oregon and aim to create a dance party wherever they land
