Armed with arena-ready songs reminiscent of Pearl Jam and U2, the band is driven to create a more meaningful connection between art and audience. With a DIY ethos focused on the convergence of music and tech, an inclination towards consistent musical experimentation, and an earnest commitment to topics ranging from the intimately personal to the sociopolitical.

Full lineup includes Blood (10p) with Ben McCamman McGinnis on guitar; Tim O’Brien on vocals; Caleb Parker on piano; Julian McCamman Mcginnis on guitar; Tyler Wolff on percussion; Nino Soberon on bass /cello; and Zach Malett on trumpet. The Sun Machine (9p) is a four-piece Austin-based band co-mingling genres and exchanging harmonies to the backdrop of darker cross dimensional pop sounds.
