Performing on the Bar Pink Stage, local San Diego band, The Verigolds, put on an electric performance and kept the crowd grooving. Often described as a psychedelic indie pop band, The Verigolds create a sound perfect for summer tinged with nostalgia for days passed. The ethereal voice of Jenna Cotton and guitarist Eliot Ross accompanied with a blend of synth, keyboard, and sometimes even violin, create a distinctly upbeat and original sound uniting music lovers from across all genres.
Dani Bell & the Tarantist
Adorned in masks fitting for a masquerade ball, Dani Bell and the Tarantist initially create an intimidating stage presence. However, the unexpectedly soft and ultra-feminine voice of singer Dani Bell juxtaposes the group’s mysterious personas by expressing a unique vulnerability. Tarantist and percussionist Al Howard mans pre-recorded tracks on a vintage boombox and creates unique sounds with unexpected found and fabricated objects.
Creating an eclectic sound, songs range from funky and upbeat to sparse and atmospheric. The perfect soundtrack for a road trip through an empty desert, Dani Bell and the Tarantist’s performance leaves you wanting more.
