Air Saxophone Competition hosted by Gorilla Mask 
Bring your honk, your dance moves, your who-can-it-be-nows and born-to-runs, your stretchy jeans, your most slaying-est struts. The winner will go down in local lore!

Ground-shaking grooves, hammering rhythms, and wailing melodies layered with explosive no-holds-barred improvisations, Berlin's Gorilla Mask is a type of sonic madness roaring with a restless, implacable energy. They craft spirals of sound in four or five dimensions, the ebb and flow of an acutely aware trio of musicians.

Tune-Yards with Hannah Epperson, one of North America's best live acts!
Tune-Yards' latest iteration finds the band flirting with the dance floor, as four on the floor kickdrum underpins wild polyrhythms and slinky bass grooves. The band's atypical arrangements defy gravity, bursting like fireworks one moment and retreating inwards the next as the band blends pop, hip-hop, soul, folk, rock, and 80’s house music.

Their new album, I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life, is an unflinching examination of modern identity, built on Merril Garbus' recent foray into DJing and inspired in part by C.L.A.W. (Collaborative Legions of Artful Womxn), her radio show highlighting female-identifying producers. While the album was written prior to the 2016 presidential election, it’s not difficult to hear hints of political anxiety throughout the record.

Uli Jon Roth, lead guitarist of German heavy metal band Scorpions, on his Triple Anniversary World Tour. For UJR Fans 2018 is going to be a very special year:
40-year anniversary of Scorpions - Tokyo Tapes and of of the Birth of Electric Sun 
50-year anniversary of Uli’s first ever stage performance in 1968

To celebrate Uli Jon Roth is performing a whole series of concerts and tours worldwide with varying programmes. His two-month triple anniversary North American Tour will be devoted to performing a complete set of Songs from Uli’s ground breaking Electric Sun period.
Electric Sun Reborn will consist of an intense 90-minute set by Uli and his band, complemented by multi-media projections. This is followed by an intermission and a shorter set of the highlights from Tokyo Tapes Revisited to round off the 3-hour extravaganza.

Uli has not performed the bulk of this music for over 30 years. Electric Sun was far more than just a cult band and had a sizeable following on both sides of the Atlantic as well as in Japan. Thanks to Uli’s innovative and ground-breaking guitar playing and interesting compositions the band presents a unique blend between Beethoven and Hendrix.

Known for their hypnotic melodies, visceral bass lines, and tidal rhythm, Manchester-based left field piano trio, GoGo Penguin, are pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka, and drummer Rob Turner. Their music has been described as acoustic-electronica, but they draw equally on jazz, minimalism, game soundtracks, and glitchy electronica.

It’s music for the heart, head, and feet and saw their album, v2.0, named a Mercury Prize Album of the Year 2014. In 2016 they released the album Man Made Object and more recently they have been touring their own score to Godfrey Reggio’s cult film, Koyaanisqatsi. Their new album, A Humdrum Star, was released this past February.

Guillaume Perret is a jazz saxophonist, keyboard player, and composer from Annecy, France. Perret, along with Jim Grandcamp, Philippe Bussonnet, and Yoann Serra, make up Guillaume Perret and the Electric Epic, a contemporary avant-fusion Zeuhl super-group who have released four albums, the most recent being 2014’s Open Me.
