Here We Go Magic
with Super Desserts

"Ethereal collage of indie folk, Baroque pop, Plains country (and whatever else strikes their fancy)."—All Music Guide

Brooklyn's Here We Go Magic's hypnotic mix of elements from psychedelic folk-rock to ambient grooves has captured listeners worldwide. Led by Luke Temple, the band enchants with acoustic melodies that underscore spiraling loops. Its stream-of-consciousness approach juxtaposes lo-fi jaggedness with more polished sections of sculpted sound. Evoking a soaring sense of wonder, Here We Go Magic creates clouds of sonic marvels that hold up under close examination as they wash over you in waves.

Super Desserts, a Columbus band whose dreamy folk pop draws inspiration from seventies' soft rock, sad old French songs, and the plaintive mountain tunes of the Carter Family, open the show. Their sound features an array of instruments including banjo, bass clarinet, cello, glockenspiel, piano, sitar, violin, and viola.
