AMM Special: Sound On Sound Fest Preview

Posted by on Nov 2, 2016

‘Tis but a few days away, ye music fanatics. Sound On Sound Fest is already killing it with a spectacular bunch of line-ups in its inaugural year, taking over the grounds of Sherwood Forest this Friday through Sunday. The multiple slightly medieval-themed stages – Dragon’s Lair, Forest, The Keep, etc. –  embrace a vibe that might fit in during another Faire’s annual festivities, only these stages offer a mix of local and touring music artists, comedy, live podcasts and panel discussions. Ah, the sweetest sounds for thine ears that maketh the heart burst forth its own ecstatic tones, in unison with the voices that doth ring from yonder stage! Or…you know, it’s gonna be awesome and stuff.

For the rest of this week your Austin Music Minute host will offer a few fest picks for your perusal, including some names you may have heard mentioned today:

Friday – Run the Jewels, Guided By Voices (featured on today’s AMM), The Descendents, Magna Carda, Thundercat and Phantogram.

SaturdayJagwar Ma, Carseat Headrest, Moving Panoramas, Hard Proof, Purity Ring, Aesop Rock and Dillinger Escape Plan.
