SISTER ACT 3: BACK IN THE HAIM

The beautiful 3-headed beast that is Haim (rhymes with time) will let their hair down at MusicfestNW this year. Sisters Este Arielle, Danielle Sari, and Alana Mychal Haim have concocted a flawless musical trio full of delicate glamour, punchy vocals, and smooth, beat-pulsing harmonies.

Growing up in L.A., the girls played in their family band Rockinhaim giving them an early taste of what their talents have now turned into: a multifaceted triad with flowing instrumental elegance and real, pure, girlish charm. Consequently, Haim has become one of the most reputable, chic bands to hit the music scene in the last year. As teenagers, the family band had an annual gig, preventing the girls from attending Coachella. These days the three twenty-somethings headlined Coachella, with stellar performances both weekends.  Back in 2013, they made the rounds from Governors Ball, to Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza and even shared a stage (on a different night) with the Rolling Stones at Glastonbury. MusicfestNW is thrilled they are stopping by the Waterfront on August 17th. See you there! Tickets on sale now!

Future Islands does it again….and again

Future Islands does it again….and again…..and probably will do it a couple more times. They hopped on Jimmy Kimmel Live the night of May 5th and leadman Samuel T. Herring seduced the crowd once more with countless gyrations and thrusts. They performed “Sprit” and “Doves” from their Singles album. You can also stream their entire concert at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. Make it full screen and you can almost taste the sweat dripping off Herring’s face. Declare your love for them at MusicfestNW this summer on Saturday, August 16th!
