Magic Giant – Sept. 10th 8:50-10:05 – More Info
NPR proclaimed, “This L.A. indie-folk band has a festival anthem on its hands,” and since then MAGIC GIANT has moved bodies and souls in over thirty cities across North America this year. They have sold out legendary venues ranging from the Troubadour in Los Angeles to Mercury Lounge in New York City to The Silver Dollar Room in Toronto, headlining festivals like RiSE for 14,000 people in the Mojave Desert and events like Rock the Vote in Austin, Texas. The group has built a reputation for its infectious sing-alongs and communal live experiences, blending folk instruments (banjo, fiddle, harmonica) with big drums and dance rhythms.
The band kicked off 2015 with a performance on KEXP hosted by John Richards (credited for discovering The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey”). They have since been featured on Spotify’s New Music Tuesday and Billboard for ‘Artist on the Verge.’ The group self-produced its debut EP, notably featuring Rashawn Ross of Dave Matthews Band and Spencer Ludwig of Capital Cities. They are currently working on their sophomore EP from their 1940’s bomb-shelter-turned-studio in Silver Lake, California.
