As we gear up for next weekend at Captiol Hill Block Party and start the pre-party vibes, we decided to share some of the acts we’re excited to see.
Toro y Moi– It seems that Toro is all over the place lately. While his new project ‘What For?’ is a hit, we’re interested to see his live set next weekend. Lately, his soundcloud postings have been a bit darker, including this bit with ATL’s Rome Fortune, which is one of the most innovative hip-hop songs we’ve heard in a while.
Father John Misty– A little refreshing taste in a world where festivals rely on EDM and big named hip-hop acts, Father John Misty throws a great live show.
Jamie XX– Being a member of the world renowned band, The XX, is no joke. Jamie is known to tear down dance floors with his sets, and we look forward to seeing it live in person. His song with Young Thug is high up on there on the list of Songs of the Summer.
Daktyl– We met Daktyl at What the Festival 2015 backstage when we were kicking it with Stwo. Dude is mad humble and slated to take over with his musical talent, mixing natural instrumentation with synths and a massive sound.
Sam Lachow– We’ve been fortunate enough to kick it with Sam in the PNW, but never in his hometown. We’re excited to see him close out the Vera stage on Sunday, the last show he’s playing this year so he can concentrate on putting out an album before the end of the year.
