Yep. This is it. Let's pause from festivities to raise our glasses and toast 10 years of incredible generosity from our hosts (the Hoppes).
Pay the Devil got together in the winter of 2011 and has been playing around the Milwaukee area ever since. They play mostly original tunes in a variety of styles alongside an assortment of bluegrass and old-time standards, sea shanties, folk, Irish, and country music. This five-piece, made up of guitar, mandolin, banjo, upright bass, and washboard (spoons and assorted other hillbilly percussive instruments) puts on a fun live show filled with foot-stomping, thigh-slapping music, and enough hollering to go around. Pay The Devil’s genre has been described as “Shantygrass”, “Riotgrass”, and “Horse [Manure] and Gun Music”.
Neocaveman got their start in 2015 and their music has evolved into the indie progressive rock sound that they have become known for around the Midwest, constructed with complicated arrangements and rich harmonies that blend a capella gospel sounds with fingerstyle psychedelia.
The project is a collaboration of Peter Hair and Paul Tyree of Faux Fiction, Samuel Balistreri of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee fingerstyle guitar program, Simon Beno of American Monroe, and Jeremy Moroder of Epimotive. Ertrok Radio Hour says “[Neocaveman] blend math, pop and indie rock seamlessly into pleasing often dream-like tracks. Neocaveman is nothing short of astounding.”
The Canvasmen come from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Whenever possible they like to mix urgent rock-and-roll frenzy with less-urgent rock-and-roll levity and see what comes of it.
Selector Z is a Ulao thoroughbred! We are lucky to have him spinning his goodness at the final festival!!!
