NAIVE MELODIES 10:00-11:00
Naive Melodies was formed in Arcata, CA early in 2011, performing and honoring music created by Talking Heads. Sets are designed to interweave older and newer Talking Heads songs. Fans can expect to hear a wide range of material, from early art-rock, to radio hits, and everything in-between. With blends of three-part harmonies, synthesizers, and heavy grooves, this 3-piece dance machine does Talking Heads right!
DEPARTURE is a music and surrounding arts collective formed in Shermerville, Illinois in 2007. Psychedelia Tethered To Earth, Always on the Road, Heart is Always Home.
