MidPoint Indie Summer Series Featuring Dawes

August 6 • Fountain Square

0 Comments · Monday, August 2, 2010
Dawes' debut album, last fall's 'North Hills,' evokes the desert sunset beauty of the best of SoCal's '70s Country/Rock movement while the band makes its sound and message completely relevant to Indie fans of the here and now. Fans of early Wilco, Son Volt and My Morning Jacket will find plenty to embrace in Dawes, who play this week's MidPoint Indie Summer show with Messerly and Ewing, The Sweep and Goose.  

MidPoint Indie Summer Series Featuring Bob Log III, Eat Sugar and More

July 30 • Fountain Square

0 Comments · Sunday, July 25, 2010
Bob Log III, opening for Eat Sugar Friday on Fountain Square as a part of the free MidPoint Indie Summer Series, is a Delta Blues mash-up of Hasil Adkins and Super Dave Osborne. He's a one-man band who uses his hands to scorch through razor-sharp slide-guitar licks like the second coming of Mississippi Fred McDowell, his feet to play with the fury of an armless Keith Moon and his chased-by-a-hellhound voice to howl over the musical racket he's making on any given stage.

MidPoint Indie Summer Series Featuring Camera Obscura

June 4 • Fountain Square

0 Comments · Monday, May 31, 2010
In their 14-year history, Scottish Indie Pop collective Camera Obscura has benefited from high profile endorsements — legendary DJ John Peel was an early champion and Belle and Sebastian frontman Stuart Murdoch produced CO's debut full-length in 2001, 'Biggest Bluest Hi Fi' — while stuffing their press kit with glowing praise for each successive album. With the departure of co-lead singer John Henderson, Tracyanne Campbell is alone at the mic, but she clearly has risen to the occasion.

Aloha with Pomegranates and The Buried Wires

April 23 • Contemporary Arts Center

0 Comments · Monday, April 19, 2010
In the studio, Aloha has tended to focus on an Ambient vibe, while their live sets have become known for their more relentlessly visceral presentation, a Prog/Punk/Pop amalgam that touches similarly atmospheric nerves as R.E.M. and Radiohead. This show is also the 2010 MidPoint Music Festival kickoff event, where attendees will find out the latest MPMF developments.
