LA-based Magic Giant has been thrilling growing crowds at every stop along its 70-city North American and European tour, celebrating the release of its debut album In The Wind. DuJour has proclaimed Magic Giant "the most festive band in the festival circuit, quickly becoming a must-see." Its style has been described by NPR as "upbeat, passionate indie-folk" and by Billboard as inspiring "mass dance-alongs." Its initial single "Set on Fire" broke the top 25 on the US Alternative chart and its current single "Window" recently leaped into the Top 40 on Billboard's Hot AC and Adult Pop charts.
The trio, comprised of Austin (lead vocals), Zambricki (viola, banjo, harmonica), and Zang (acoustic guitar, cello) weaves together a musical quilt of alternative, pop, and folk on its LP, uniquely recorded from their solar-powered mobile recording studio while traveling throughout the US.
"The band blends folk and pop in equal doses, creating killer harmonies, intriguing instrumental accompaniment, literally using any instrument they happen to find, including drums, banjo, trumpet, saxophone, harmonica, synthesizers, electric bass, cello, viola, violin, dobro, lap steel, mandolin, and more. Their sound is huge and features melodies that soar to majestic heights, and the way the album was created has a lot to do with that." (Popmatters)
Lindy Vision will open the show. Lindy Vision was formed in 2014 in Albuquerque. Prior to 2014, they were known as Black Natives (with no official releases). They underwent the name change to Lindy Vision to better describe themselves and their attraction to music. The term "Lindy" was inspired by the autobiography of Malcolm X and the "Vision" comes from their shared personal mantra to always dream and keep goals. If you can visualize your dream, it can happen. They affectionately call all of their followers "Visionaries."
